LONDON (AFP) A Christian bus driver refused this week to drive a bus that displayed an atheist advertisement saying "There's probably no God" on the side, reports said on Friday.

The driver from Southampton in Hampshire reacted with "shock" and "horror" last Sunday when he saw the slogan and walked out of his shift in protest, the BBC reported.

He's free to do that, and his employer is free to fire him.

And, if this fellow is obeying God in all areas of his life, then God will provide a new job because he met the condition of the promise.

(Philippians 4:19) But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

Good for him in taking a stand. A few years ago he would have been fired as we seemed to have every religion bar Christianity accommodated. Under new laws I don't think they can fire him and have bowed to his wishes.
Anyone fancy plastering a banner with Allah Does Not Exist on the side of a bus? Not likely.

Christians should never compromise their faith. I couldn't drive that bus either.
