    Woman Kicked Off Bus For Reading Bible Out Loud To Her Kids!

    This is unbelievable!

    FORT WORTH -- A Fort Worth woman wants an apology from the city's mass transit system because of how she was treated Saturday while on her way to church. Christine Lutz claimed she was kicked off The T for reading the Bible aloud to her children.

    Lutz said she was sitting in the back of the bus, but wasn't being disruptive. She claimed she was stunned when the bus driver interrupted her reading.

    "She asked me to stop reading my Bible," Lutz told FOX 4. "I said, 'No, I'm reading the Bible, I'm teaching the kids, I'm going to continue.' And I continued."

    If she was sitting in the back of the bus and the driver who obviously sits in the front of the bus heard her then yes she was being too loud and that is considered disruptive in my opinion. I don't think this has anything to do with what she was reading at all...She was being rude.

    Maybe she was too loud and wanting attention..."Look at me, I am teaching my kids the bible" or something like that. Either way you have to obey the rules.

    If she was loud and didn't regard the warning, then she should have been kicked off regardless of what the book was. Reading out loud so 4 kids can hear you over typical bus noises is different than reading to 1 kid, so she probably was a little louder than normal. IMO anyway.

    I agree.... it sounds like she was loud and wanted attention. People want to ride in peace and not have someone taking over everyone's peace and quiet. And now she wants to make it a civil or religious rights issue. Kick her butt off!

    Wasn't there a story like this about an older lady that got kicked off the bus for making loud comments to a young mother or something?

    oh yeah I remember now:

    At the risk of being jumped...I am going to say this! This is sickening. I am a Christian. I am not a racist. HOWEVER.....just like the "race" card often being played...so is the "religious oppression" card. I am SOOOOOO sick of this crap. People just don't want to take ANY personal responsibility of wrong doing. It is either you don't like me because I am (insert ANY race) or you want to pick on me because of my religious affiliation. Grow up American and quit whining. If she was speaking so loud that the driver could hear what she was saying...then I am sure she was disturbing the whole freaking bus! OK...bomb away. I might need to turn off my PM's!

    Sounds to me like she was just too loud too. Perhaps being told to hush embarrassed her and this is her reaction.

    That is what I mean. Rather than to take it as it was intended..."Don't be so loud"...she chooses to see it as religious persecution.

    Doesn't sound to me like she was treated all that poorly... she and the kids got a nice free and private ride to church in the bus company van. Quite to the contrary, it seems as if she was rewarded for her rude behavior.

    Before I form a definite opinion as to whether or not the bus driver was wrong or the mother was wrong I would like to hear all of the facts--preferably to include other's opinions who were on the bus. This could go either way at this point, otherwise. The bus driver may have been intolerant to a woman reading the bible to her children, or the mother may have been reading in a loud, disruptive manner. I just don't know.

    However, now that I think about it, how would the bus driver know what type of content the mother was reading if she was at the back of the bus unless she was reading loudly? I would still like more facts and accounts, though. Was she first asked to tone it down because it was disruptive to the driver and other passengers? Did she refuse to do this or become belligerent when asked? Or did the bus driver somehow hear the woman reading in an, "indoor voice" and did not want to hear anything religious?

    I have a feeling that the mother was reading too loudly and that it was disruptive. But, feelings aren't facts.

    Definitely not gonna bomb away with the old PM's deanws. You may be on the money. Ah, heck even if it turns out to not be true I never do that anyway. I hope she isn't using the religious card, now that would angrify me.
