Burnsville MN public school bus driver fired for prayer

November 7, 2013

A public school bus driver who is also a pastor was warned not to pray with the students on his bus, and kept doing so: he was fired last week.  While he has claimed that this is a freedom of speech issue, the fact that he is driving a public school bus with a captive audience of children is a violation of the Establishment Clause.

As a pastor, he should focus his prayer efforts on people who are part of his congregation and are willing attendees to his sermons, not on those who have no choice to be present and may not share his religious beliefs.
