ATL bus driver orders passengers to pray before they can exit??!!

A MARTA bus driver is on suspension following allegations that he forced passengers to pray before allowing them to exit the bus.

Christopher James was one of those passengers. James said, initially, he thought something was wrong when he rang the bell to get off the bus and the door didn’t open.

James said the bus driver asked him and three other passengers to join hands in prayer. James said the driver prayed with the group for about four minutes….

Cripes! One of those long-winded guys, too.

James’ cousin, who arrived at the bus stop to meet him, said she saw the men standing inside the bus, but didn’t realize they were praying.

“I was like, ‘Why were y’all praying on the bus? He said the man would not let them off the bus.”

And they wonder why nobody likes MARTA. Har!

    By the way, that’s the coolest local TV station web page I’ve come across during my web explorations so far.

    Apparently getting on a bus in Atlanta is like staying at The Hotel California?

    You can checkout any time you like,
    But you can never leave!

    …unless you pray first, of course!

    🙂

    Wonder if I can get away with forcing my customers to resign their superstitious beliefs before I deliver them the software they’ve paid for.

      I’m not so sure the Flying Spaghetti Monster would approve. And I don’t think you should run the risk of offending his noodliness.

      IMHO

    They should do this on Canadian Greyhound. Chopping heads off, canceling bus routes, lost luggage and angry roids. Finish the journey with a Hail Mary, and a confessional.
