Why is a picture of an injured hedgehog attached to a story about a bus driver & gay rights poster? Was the bus too offensive?
 
LOL I was thinking the same Sue, although I do like Hedgehogs so it's a bonus I guess?
 
he's wearing purple casts, which is maybe kinda gay?

+Hayriye Enver poor little thing ~ does seem a heck of a mixup though ;)
 
So essentially a group which calls a Catholic Cardinal the Biggot of the Year, now gets to cause trouble for any Christian bus driver who refuses to advertise for them. Britain deserves to be overrun by Muslims and Indians... You've betrayed the culture which once made you great.

+Marc Aupiais 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.
 
+Sue H the organization mentioned is known for attacking the Christian religion. If it were a Nazi emblem could he object? he fact is conscientious objection is important to society. Stonewall has made it very clear it hates Christianity. If he is Christian, why must he aiding advertising an anti-Christian group?

+Marc Aupiais "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.
 
+Sue H say what you want, but I am deeply thankful that Islam is growing, and yes, that groups like Al Qaeda are gaining power across the world, and that Britain is losing power. Why? Because you have no respect for the consciences of religious people. Must Christians not operate hotels, not work in hospitals, not drive busses, not be politicians, must every Christian leave Britain? The fact is there is a right to practice religion in one's daily life. Would you expect a Muslim to advertise a 'Bearded people are idiots' poster.The advert is a clear attack on Christianity by a Christianity hating group. I thank God for the aging population problem that Britain will soon be Muslim, and not 'practical atheist' Christian. I say this as a Christian. Your nation's joy in persecuting Christ and his followers is known across the world.

+Marc Aupiais 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.
 
+Sue H he simply asks not to advertise a hate group. Jesus directly spoke of homosexuality. he said: Let Man not divide what God has united: except in the case of sexual Immorality, a phrase which any expert will tell you, referred to incest, bestiality  extra-marital relations and homosexuality. Jesus also said that any who removed one punctuation mark from the law would land in hell, and history shows Christians rejected homosexuality from the beginning. The love Jesus taught was a fuller love. The bible says:'Love is to obey the law', and 'any who lives in darkness (sin) has never met God'. In other words, whatever you believe, Jesus and his followers rejected homosexuality as a moral evil. That is a historical fact.

+Marc Aupiais 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.
 
Was the hedgehog one of the passengers? Surely not the driver! Maybe he's gay.
 
+Sue H , 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...?
