Now here is an interesting one.
“A Christian bus driver has refused to drive a bus with an atheist slogan proclaiming “There’s probably no God”. Ron Heather, from Southampton, Hampshire, responded with “shock” and “horror” at the message and walked out of his shift on Saturday in protest. First Bus said it would do everything in its power to ensure Mr Heather does not have to drive the buses.”
I am conflicted on this! For starters, I don’t think the Bus company has done anything wrong and if anything are acting as a model of corporate understanding. Second, whilst I fully understand Mr Heather’s view – being a poor Christian myself – I think he is wrong! My reason is that it sets a precedent where everytime any employee sees any advertisement they don’t like, they can immediately object and expect to be accommodated. That’s commerically wrong. No, Mr Heather is employed to drive buses and if he doesn’t like the issues this brings he should look for other employment. The campaign to insult Christians, which is behind this ad campaign, is pathetic and I just dismiss it as such. I am sure God Almighty is a bit bigger and stronger than to take notice of the scribbles of an Ad Agency on the side of a bus! Your thoughts?
