Maintain bus preacher ban

Published:Monday | January 11, 2016 | 1:00 AM

THE EDITOR, Sir:

I am a strong advocate of the fundamental right to express one's opinion freely. I am also a Christian and I think that Jamaica still needs more teachings from the Word of God. However, preachers on the Jamaica Urban Transit Company (JUTC) buses caused me great uneasiness over the Christmas holidays. It is unacceptable to label and name hard-working business people as "rich, selfish, evil and not of God".

Therefore, I endorse the decision of the JUTC's leadership to restrict all forms of proselytising on public transport that is paid for by tax dollars.
