... I think I prefer the school bus driver I had when I was a kid.
Sure, he was senile, could drop dead behind the wheel any minute, and he liked to touch us kids a little too inappropriately - but he didn't do crap like this.

Ant: DubtodaIll: It's important that developing humans learn about everything possible.

Learn about != told to believe religious dogma as truth. I teach my 8-year-old son about religions. I would be pretty pissed off if some adult in a position of authority started telling him (as fact) that his body was full of the ghosts of aliens who'd died when an ancient 747 was crashed into a volcano by an evil emperor named Xenu, and that he needed to be cleared of these spirits..


Ummm ... it was a DC8.

Please have some respect for other people's religions!!

DubtodaIll: Farking Canuck: DubtodaIll: I don't get how prayer isn't a First Amendment Right.   On the one side, you're free to practice your religion.  On the other side, it's just some guy talking out loud to essentially nothing.  How does that hurt anything?  It's not just to force the guy to be fired.  Going out of your way in order to ruin the current circumstances of a bus driver because he talked out loud to a group of children is not an equal action to a bus driver talking out loud to a group of children.

He was warned on multiple occasions, in writing, to stop what he was doing. His route was changed explicitly because of customer complaints.

He was fired for multiple reasons:

- complaints from the end customers (parents did not want him preaching to their children)
- complaints from the school (they did not want a person representing them preaching religion - violation of church and state)
- refusing to comply with explicit instructions from management

They gave him plenty of warning and were exceptionally patient with him. They had an employee who disobeys orders and alienates their customers. It was a simple business decision -  he deserved to be fired.

I can see if the guy was being insubordinate.  But further, how is it not discrimination against him towards his own religion to practice his own religion?  If you don't believe in it, then tell your child to ignore the rantings of the bus driver.  I can see why they fired him, but it just seems like they're hurting this guys ability to survive for the sake of protecting snowflakes which I find wrong.  Getting offended doesn't give you the right to anything.


But that didn't stop you from coming out swinging butthurt cranked up to eleventy. Practice what you preach. Also this isn't a just case of unpopular speech it is a case of an indisputable violation of the law. But putting that aside completely he was warned, officially reprimanded and reassigned due to complaints yet still persisted in violating established policy. Can you name a single industry or entity where an employer is going to tolerate that kind of willful disobedience?

Let me let you in on a little secret. If his religion hadn't been involved he would have been dismissed a lot sooner but he thought he could hide behind baby Jesus if he was ever called out about it. Which is exactly what he is doing now. The school board not wanting the bad press put up with his crap for as long as they legally could but at this point he is so far over the line that they can no longer ignore it without facing potential legal repercussions. If he was just telling inappropriate jokes or kept going on about all the drugs he did he would have been canned in a second. The only reason he wasn't was the school didn't want to hear criticism from hypocritical reactionary jags up in arms because libs want to murder christmas and turn our kids into gay, communist liebruuls eating aborted fetuses garnished with bath salts. So spare us the pearl clutching act already granny.

OnlyM3: Farking Canuck

I just have to wonder if FARK would be so unified in this belief if the reports were complaints about him telling the kids to vote obama.



What office is Obama running for at the moment?

If only there could be somewhere that those who share a particular faith could meet and pray together, on a regular basis? Perhaps weekly, or even twice a week? Somewhere they could share their ideas in a safe, supportive environment. Maybe a few radio stations, television channels, books, etc., that they could enjoy as an alternative to secular society? But, of course, these are just fantastical ideas. They have no choice but to roam the spiritual wasteland, "witnessing" to anyone and everyone, anywhere and everywhere. If only...

'They are trying to take away every right the Christian has to express our Christian belief in this supposed to have been Christian nation,' he told the station

I.....don't even know where to begin with that sentence. Instead I'm just going to sigh, angrily.
