More god botherers chuck bricks out of pram

Hot(ish) on the heels of the BA woman and her crucifix, and the bloke who wouldn't give relationship advice to gays comes yet another god botherer who refuses to drive his bus because Richard Dawkins & co have put a "there's probably no god" advert on it.

So say hello to Ron Heather.

Ron Heather, from Southampton, Hampshire, responded with "shock" and "horror" at the message and walked out of his shift on Saturday in protest.
Has he been sacked or even reprimanded for causing inconvenience to customers of First Bus, who - doubtless because they have to get the bus in the first place - are the usual mix of the elderly, the infirm and the skint? Of course he hasn't -
"I felt that I could not drive that bus, I told my managers and they said they haven't got another one and I thought I better go home, so I did.
So Ron goes off in a huff, and his employers do this:
First Bus said it would do everything in its power to ensure Mr Heather does not have to drive the buses. When he returned to work on Monday he was called into a meeting with managers and agreed to go back to work with the promise he would only have to drive the buses if there were no others available
What the fuckidy-fuck??? I'm not nostradamus, but I'm guessing the fuckers in his union has some pressure to bear on this one (as they always do, bastards).

But understand this Ron - you are employed to drive people from place to place and collect fares - the colour, or advertising on your bus will in no way affect your ability to do this - be it red, blue of fucking glittery pink, you drive the bus and that is the end of it. Your contract does not give you the right to decide the livery and advertising of your bus. You are a hyper-senitive fucker and deserve the sack for refusing to do your job; not fucking tea & sympathy for your excessive sensitivity. At what point did you think you have the right to renegotiate your terms & conditions based on the adverts on your bus? You don't like it then quit and get a job bringing the light of christ into peoples lives. Or maybe not.

Sack the bastard and see how his faith will provide him with a living wage in the middle of a recession. Stupid twat.

Funny how it's always the religious nuts who claim their "human rights" if they find something offensive has been said against their God. Don't these arseholes realize that if their God is so fucking great, then He /She/It or (to be politically correcter) She/He/It is o fucking powerful that they can sort it out themselves? Just a thought....

He should be sacked, his employer could easily use his religion to argue a/ tolerance towards those who do not believe and b/ God will provide, however we think your a cunt so fuck off and here is your P45.

He looks as if his head contains one of Gordon's old bogies humping his one remaining brain cell. Wish I lived on his bus route, I'd be hopping on each day with requests such as a return to hell please.

Just realised after your comment Fido - thus far the record of Christian god-botherers at tribunals are completely piss-poor (BA cross-woman, gaylord relationship advisor etc) - so what bare Blakey & co worrying about? They get rid of one trouble-maker and someone who won't work over Christmas as well - happy days!

Although there's a certain charm in seeing a God Botherer of the Christian Illusion causing trouble as opposed to the followers of the paedophile Mohammed.

Hope that doesn't offend your local councillor, who is such an avid fan of your blog.


If his faith is so strong then it should not bother him what others think and choose to bandy about.

I expect he will be looking for counselling to help him get over the shock of seeing it.
