Bus Driver Allegedly Told Autistic Kid She’d Be Shot with Fireballs in Hell if She Wasn’t Devout

It’s bad enough when someone says to a child that she’s doomed to an eternity of torture if she doesn’t believe in God — a place where she’ll be pelted with “fireballs” forever.

It’s really bad when the kid is told her parents will be joining her in Hell if they don’t ask for Jesus’ forgiveness.

And it’s just bottom-of-the-barrel awful when we’re talking about a school bus driver saying all this to an autistic five-year-old:

Indoctrinating any 5-year-old child, but particularly one with a known disability, is “predatory and an outrageous abuse of her position,” charged FFRF Staff Attorney Elizabeth Cavell in the Dec. 14 letter. “The Supreme Court has stressed the importance of protecting students from religious promotion by public school districts.”

For now, the Juniata County School District in Pennsylvania has reassigned the driver to a different route as they investigate, but if the investigation reveals that this story checks out, FFRF is calling for the driver to be reprimanded or dismissed.
