Down here in "Amurica," we have our Bigot Bakers and Bigot Photographers and Bigot County Clerks who refuse to do their jobs because … The Gays. But this isn’t just an American thing … it’s spreading across the border into Canada.
Maybe Scott Walker was right about building a fence between Canada and the Us ... but use it to keep America's crazy out of Canada?
Anyway ... Jesse Rau, a Calgary Transit driver, has ignited controversy over his refusal to do his job, which is to drive a bus, because during Calgary’s Pride Festival the buses have been painted rainbow colors and he thinks that infringes on his religious freedom.
Seriously? Maybe he should head to Kentucky and drive Kim Davis to and from work in a bigot bus.
"I feel like people at Calgary Transit are now against me because I stand firmly for my Christian faith and won't compromise my values."
Um, no Jesse, Calgary Transit simply wants you to do your job … drive the bus. And be truthful, because, according to city manager Jeff Fielding, Jesse Rau has not contacted him, or anyone at his job, to say he doesn’t want to drive the bus and why he doesn’t want to drive it.
So, Jesse, this is all about you getting your Fifteen Minutes of Bigot Fame, and since it’s just about over, why don’t you quit, and find yourself a nice little Christian bus to drive because, let me make this perfectly queer, Jesse: driving a bus painted with a rainbow flag, or flying a rainbow flag, or painted with a pink triangle, or emblazoned with the words Gay Pride has absolutely nothing to do with your faith.
Keep your faith; keep your head in the sand. Look for a new job, and then do it.
Since you can’t do this one.
