The Des Moines Regional Transit Authority has suspended a driver who refused to drive a bus bearing an ad for an atheist group.
Angela Shiel was suspended on Monday after she refused to drive a bus with an Iowa Atheists & Freethinkers ad on its side. The ad reads "Don't believe in God? You are not alone."
Shiel says the message is against her Christian faith.
The transit authority removed the ads earlier this month after complaints from riders, then reversed course after meeting with the atheist group.
DART general manager Brad Miller says policy states that drivers can't choose which buses they drive.
