Atlanta Bus Driver Refused To Let Riders Off Until They Prayed

Posted by | November 9, 2009 18:28 | Filed under: Top Stories

Leroy Matthews got a five day suspension for forcing riders to pray before they could get off a MARTA bus.

Christopher James was one of those passengers. James said, initially, he thought something was wrong when he rang the bell to get off the bus and the door didn’t open.

James said the bus driver asked him and three other passengers to join hands in prayer. James said the driver prayed with the group for about four minutes.


“He got up out of the driver’s seat,” said James.


James, who isn’t against prayer, said he felt compelled to join in although the request confused him.


I thought the idea was to pray for a bus to come so you could get on it.
