LDS Girls know all to well, that today, Standing Up for what you believe, among other things, could potentially cost you, your job! I was so impressed with this story, coming out of the UK - of a bus driver who refused to drive his bus, when he saw an Atheist ad, boldly displayed!
As members of the LDS Church, we are encouraged to Stand Up for what we believe - and we're pretty darn good at it. Among LDS Girls, we have a great support system for doing so... I'm not sure if this "Mr. Heather" has a team behind him, encouraging him to do the right thing, but I tend to doubt it. I think that's one of the reason I love this story, so much.
BBC NEWS | UK | England | Hampshire | Man refuses to drive 'No God' bus: "A Christian bus driver has refused to drive a bus with an atheist slogan proclaiming 'There's probably no God'.
Ron Heather, from Southampton, Hampshire, responded with 'shock' and 'horror' at the message and walked out of his shift on Saturday in protest.
First Bus said it would do everything in its power to ensure Mr Heather does not have to drive the buses.
Buses across Britain started displaying atheist messages in an advertising campaign launched earlier this month.
Mr Heather told BBC Radio Solent: 'I was just about to board and there it was staring me in the face, my first reaction was shock horror.
'I felt that I could not drive that bus, I told my managers and they said they haven't got another one and I thought I better go home, so I did.
Mr Heather said he was shocked at the 'starkness' of the advert
'I think it was the starkness of this advert which implied there was no God.'"

If you haven't had the chance to read President Hinckley's very popular book, "Standing For Something", I hope that you will. I highly recommend it!
