- The bus driver is an employee of the bus company, he does not own the bus so he cannot choose what is displayed on it. He is paid to drive it, he refused to do his job. If a white man refused to drive a bus promoting equality for black people they would be told off. If an Orthodox Jew refused to drive a bus because a woman's picture was on the side, they would be told off. Why is this different? Not his bus, not his choice.Nov 16, 2012
- "Hate the sin without hating the sinner" ~ That could go for Stonewall too: They campaign against anyone who hates them, regardless of religion.
He is free to be a conscientious objector but he must not expect others to defer to his beliefs. You take your pay and if you don't like what you are asked to do as part of your job then you either discuss it and ask not to be put in that position IN THE FIRST PLACE or you change jobs.
I have no problem with his preference, although I disagree, I do have a problem with him turning up to work and throwing a temper tantrum.Nov 16, 2012
- In our country all are considered equal, and equally responsible for their own behaviour. The right to practice religion freely is enshrined BUT this does not mean imposing on others.
If I were to say I am a Woman, I may walk without my hair covered, that is not an attack on those who believe women should cover their hair or be sinful. Your argument is silly. Many MANY Christians say that Jesus did not speak of homosexuality, that he spoke of love not hate, that their is a modern way of understanding the bible.
Do not assume you speak for all Christians, you do not.Nov 16, 2012
- Interesting that you interpret what Jesus said, and so did Paul. Did you know that the old testament law forbade many things that we now accept as ok as St Paul changed that law after Jesus died? Is there an explanation for that without contradicting your statement?
I return to a prior statment, as we will not agree on this, You speak for yourself, and yes, for many christians, but not all.Nov 16, 2012
- Was the hedgehog one of the passengers? Surely not the driver! Maybe he's gay.Nov 16, 2012
- , I'm intrigued to know what laws you think the apostle Paul changed...? and if you're thinking about food, are you sure it was Paul and not Peter...?Nov 16, 2012
