    Do I think that the bus company should be forced to accomodate her? No.

    Do I think that she should be able to politely request, and have that request honored? Yes.

    I think the union rep needs to remember who he's representing.

    good on the bus company for excercising common sense.

    Well I disagree. She oughta raise all the hell she can, just like every other offended asswipe does. Gays, Muslims, athiests, pipe bombers, serial killers, Demorats, tree huggers, baby rapers...all they seem to do is bitch and moan about everything a straight white right handed non-pot smoking Christian male does. Let 'em see how bad their own shit smells for a change. Betcha fifty bucks some dicksmoker will be "offended" and win a million bucks out of this. And the original offended party will be a pariah.

    God bless America.

    Just another in the long line of those who don't get it.


    (and as Prof points out...)

    I think that they handled it well by offering her any 25 of the 150 routes that don't have those ads. It's her perogative to not condone the placement of those ads. HOWEVER, I think that if she is so against it, why isn't she taking the whole Company to task over the fact that even one bus has the ad? She's a hypocrite, that's why.

    (I am not against the ad - but it sounds ridiculous... *Unleash the inner gay*??? Oh brother...)

    yeah let 'em piss and moan like a bunch of mediocre, middle-aged, right-handed, straight, and decreasingly relevant social laggards looking for something to complain about.

    It would probably be downright illegal to refuse the ad on civil rights grounds.

    She probably is but she's powerless to stop it. She could quit, however.

    Exactly. So the fact that she doesn't, tells me she's just being an ass.

    Are you kidding? Do you have the slightest clue how much money a bus driver makes? I'd saw off my left testicle to make what she probably does in a year.

    There are other jobs. However, at this one she has union thugs backing her up to call the company names while driving their busses.

    Hmm.. so her religious beliefs can be bought. How raw.

    So...she's an ass because she said she won't drive a bus with gay ads, because she's intolerant (in your eyes), or because she won't quit her job? I'm kinda confused as to where you're going with this...

    I unleashed my inner gay years ago, and promptly kicked its pansy ass.

    She won't drive a bus that has gay ads because it's against her religious beliefs, right? But it's ok for her to work for a company that condones the displaying of such ads. You don't see any hypocrisy in this?

    Actually .. no. She's not forcing her beliefs on others.
