Fired For Praying: Minneapolis School Bus Driver Fired for Praying With Passengers

November 7, 2013

What is our nation becoming? Christians are being persecuted left and right these days from the military to school systems. It is clear most Americans are still sleeping at the wheel when things like this go without coverage and instead we are presented with softball news or sport statistics on what is suppose to be Main Stream News.

MINNEAPOLIS –  A pastor who works as a school bus driver during the week recently lost his job for praying with the children who ride his bus.

George Nathaniel, 49, is the pastor of both the Elite Church of the First Born and Grace Missionary Baptist Church in Minneapolis. He has worked for the Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District for the past two years, and was hired by Durham School Services, which provides the drivers.

As Nathaniel is a Christian, he says that he likes to give the opportunity for students to sing and pray to start off their day on a positive note.

“We start out with a song,” he told the StarTribune. “Then each person will pray if they want to pray. If they don’t want to pray, they don’t have to pray. Then I will pray and ask them if they want to join me in prayer. Just give them something constructive and positive to go to school with.”

However, when an unidentified individual recently complained about Nathaniel’s prayers, Durham School Services issued him a warning and placed him on a different route.

Nonetheless, the situation did not detour the pastor.

“I let them know I am a pastor and I am going to pray,” he said. [ FULL ARTICLE ]

      The Bus driver part-time pastor has NO RIGHT to dump his evil religion on my child, WITHOUT MY KNOWLEDGE OR PERMISSION!
      Not only fired, HE SHOULD BE prosecuted for assault on unsuspecting children!
      NO MORE 501 (3) (c) tax status for these Christian HOARDER-KILLERS!
      Make the leeches pay their taxes like any other PRIVATE club!

      War-mongering evil chrisitians ARE being targeted in the u.s. of Military TERROR they support!
      Christian racists, if you worship a white-skinned man hanging dead and tortured from a cross, that is what you are!
      An insane, Racist male member of a very dangerous killer-cult!
      All of you need to have your licensed fire arms taken away.
      Thank you so much, suckers, for registering them with your local governments!
      That will now hunt you, because your ‘perception’ has lead to your kinds demise, and soon, end.
      Just think, no more 501 (3) (c) tax except status for you ‘religious freaks’!
      And, all of that property becomes ‘available’ for the taking!


      Onward christian HOARDER/KILLERS!
      Oh, WHAT FUN IT IS (that is why we do it so often!)!
      And, at the end of the day, I’ll go to ‘confession’, hey, hey, hey!
      AND, I’LL GO TO HEAVEN ANYWAY!!!!!!!!!!!

      No more ‘the way it used to be’!

      Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech.

      Just one more instance of religious persecution in Amerika.

      Christians are not the ones going to war. Yes, the Catholic hierarchy persecuted & killed people (true Christians) in the middle ages; research the facts on that before you use that as a club in your hand to beat people with. Wars are not being fought by Christians; they’re instigated by the servants of Lucifer (which you probably don’t believe in; yet your “belief” does not negate his existence, nor does it prevent you from serving him yourself, which you clearly do, as evidenced by the hate you spew). Don’t take the lazy man’s way out and spout off about things of which you have no real knowledge; that makes your thoughts simply “opinion”. Research the origins of freemasonry, the illuminati, the club of Rome. The internet is a virtual treasure trove of information. The more you learn, the more you’ll see the pieces of the puzzle just fall into place. WE DON’T KNOW WHAT WE DON’T KNOW. “‘Tis better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to speak up and remove all doubt”.

        HEY, idiot named paynoattentiontothatmanbehindthecurtain
        To quote some holy-roller roman catholic pope, before giving the order to KILL ALL men, women, and children in an agnostic encampment described by the christian-criminals as over 5,000 people “KILL THEM ALL AND LET god SORT THEM OUT”, that is EXACTLY WHAT I PLAN TO DO WITH YOU, oh, lecturing one!
        I cannot tell ALL YOU LUNATICS APART, so we will just have to “SAVE” ALL OF YOU christian LUNATICS, and let “god” sort you out into your 31 different flavors of LUNACY!
        GO STRAIGHT TO YOUR HELL, FOREVER, paynoattentiontothatmanbehindthecurtain!

          That’s okay Jesus still loves you. I may not like you or the things you say but I still love you. It’s one thing to be an athiest. But to be an athiest with a heart full if hate is just pure evil. I’ll keep you in my prayers

          The origin was from the Albigensian Crusade or Cathar Crusade (1209–1229). It was a 20-year military campaign initiated by Pope Innocent III to eliminate Catharism in Languedoc, in the south of France.

          First phrased as.. “Novit enim Dominus qui sunt eius” – “Kill them [all]! Surely the Lord discerns which [ones] are his”.

          It was said when asked.. “What if we accidentally kill our own people?” That was the reply given to the crusaders..
