Christian bus driver won't drive bus with atheist adverts
An 'anti-god' advertising campaign ran by the British Humanist Association (BHS) on buses in the UK has angered a bus driver from England.
Christian Ron Heather, from Southampton walked out during his shift on Saturday night when he found his bus had the slogan "There's probably no God" on the side.
The BHS is a UK national charity who say they support and represent people "who seek to live good lives without religious or superstitious beliefs".
On their website they say their vision is of a world without religious privilege or discrimination, where people are free to live good lives on the basis of reason, experience and shared human values.
The company who owns the buses Ron drives, First Buses, said he wouldn't need to drive one of the buses with the advert on the side.
The advertisements are currently running on 800 buses all over the UK in Scotland, England and Wales and has caused anger from Christian groups all over the UK.
A Christian bus driver has refused to drive a bus with an atheist slogan proclaiming "There's probably no God".
Ron Heather, from Southampton, Hampshire, responded with "shock" and "horror" at the message and walked out of his shift on Saturday in protest.
First Bus said it would do everything in its power to ensure Mr Heather does not have to drive the buses.
Buses across Britain started displaying atheist messages in an advertising campaign launched earlier this month.
