THE EDITOR, Sir:
Preaching at street corners is different from preaching on a bus. When you preach on a bus, you are preaching to an audience that has no choice but to listen. So those who don't want to listen are forced to listen to the usual diatribe.
At street corners, people have a choice: they can stay and listen because they want to, or move on if they don't want to.
Is Rev Al Miller implicitly suggesting that passengers who don't want to listen to the preacher can always get off the bus?
It is the people's right to decide whether or not they want to listen to religious talk on a bus; just as it is the people's right to decide whether or not they should go to church. This seems to me to be a case for the courts.
These so-called men of God need to get real. Stick to your street corners or your church and leave public transportation alone.
