Get Off My Bus, Joshua

In Joshua 24:15 Joshua says, "If serving the LORD seems desirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your forefathers served beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD."

Christine Lutz of Texas was reading the Bible out loud to her children on the way to church will riding public transporation and was asked to stop by the bus driver. She refused and was promptly escorted off the bus. The city says the same action would have been taken if she had been reading Moby Dick or reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. I think it is doubtful that had Mrs. Lutz been reading to her children the latest pop culture gossip that she would have been asked to stop reading or lose her seat on the bus. Or if Mrs. Lutz had been reading the Koran to her children I doubt this bus driver would have said a word to her. This is yet another example of how the liberties our Constitution is intended to protect are being violated when the exercise of such liberties in is the name of Jesus. Our government works hard to protect the liberties and free expressions of all kinds of religions, views, opinions except Christianity.
