Woman Escorted Off Fort Worth Bus For Reading Bible Aloud
FORT WORTH (CBS 11 News) ― A passenger on a Fort Worth bus says the T. Bus Service discriminated against her religion.Sorry, folks, but that's just not right! Not in America and especially not here in Texas. I hope God fearing, freedom loving Texans all around the country stand up for this young mom and her kids.
Christine Lutz says she was reading her Bible to her children when the bus driver asked her to stop or get off the bus.
Lutz, a Seventh Day Adventist, and her children were on their way to church.
"She then said, 'Well I don't think this is the place or the time to do so.' And I said, 'Oh, but it's the perfect time and the perfect place since it is our Sabbath and it is the time with the Lord and therefore I'm going to continue.' And I continued," she explained.
Then, a TRE supervisor came on board. Lutz also told him that she would not stop reading. She and her family were escorted off the bus.
It's OK to show kids how to put a condom on a banana in school and it's all well and good if Heather Has Two Mommies. Alternate lifestyles are encouraged on every level of society and the doctrines of diversity and tolerance are strictly enforced across the fruited plain. Radical Islamists can perpetrate brutal acts of inhumanity against innocents without a peep from fearful politically correct egalitarians. But a Christian mom is forbidden to read the Bible on a bus?
What's up with that? Is that where we are in this country? Is that where we are in Texas? I hope not!
