I'm not surprised at what happened to this righteous man. Jesse Rau is fortunate that he has a church and Pastor who supports him. Still losing a good union job with a pension is huge, especially in Alberta's new economy where thousands of people are out of work now. I pray God helps Jesse and his family to not only recover from this unjust job loss but to prosper.

Calgary1 640x345 acf cropped

I never did fully recover from the loss of my nursing career and I really hit the poverty line when the homosexual activists ruined my carpet cleaning business. It is sad that Canada's public sector employers are absolutely beholden to the promotion of sexual deviance and that good family men like Jesse Rau have to either compromise and pay homage to Sodom or forfeit their employment. This is more evidence that the homosexual agenda is not really about acceptance, it is about imposing a level of conformity where all will meekly accept the falsehoods put forward by Sodom and where one will surrender their children to homosexual mandated brainwashing. The so-called "Pride bus" was only one cog putting forward the false message that homosexuality is normal and to be celebrated. Canadians are now also expected to embrace the pro-homosexual messages being pushed in our schools, in our workplaces (especially government workplaces), and in our media. The option of just being quiet and hoping to not be noticed is becoming less tenable.

Jesse Rau's case shows Canadians are expected to forfeit their liberty in deference to pro-homosexual political correctness. Those who fail to conform will face job losses, vilification, and if they are too outspoken a myriad of courts and tribunals to grind them down. Jesse is not alone. Christian teachers have lost their jobs in Canada for not wanting to indoctrinate children into embracing homosexuality. In Ontario one can no longer practice law if they graduate from a Christian University that does not have a pro-homosexual code of conduct.

The Ontario College of Physicians has made it a policy that doctors must refer for abortions even if they believe the practice is the murder of an innocent human being. The college reasoned this policy change upholds the patient's "human rights." In reality this move violates not only the unborn child's right to life, but it also violates the medical professional's conscience and once again makes it impossible for Christians who believe in the sanctity of human life to work in the medical field.

Can Christian doctors, teachers and bus drivers hope to bring their stories to Canada's "free press" to find justice? Forget it, beyond LifeSite News all of Canada's media is completely beholden to the homosexual agenda and Culture of Death. The only hope for Canada's increasingly persecuted Christian minority is to hope in God and find strength to endure the increasing persecution that is coming to Canada, or Christians will have to consider moving elsewhere.

In Christ's Service

Calgary Transit driver who refused to drive Pride bus claims he was fired PDF Print E-mail
Written by News   
Saturday, 12 September 2015 04:42

CALGARY – A Calgary Transit bus driver who said he’d quit before driving the city’s rainbow-coloured “Pride Bus” claims he has been fired.

Jesse Rau said in a statement via Street Church pastor Artur Pawlowski that he was left go on Thursday after being “grilled for five hours” during a “special meeting.”

Rau said Calgary Transit cited two things when they let him go, but claims “none of their concerns related to [his] work.”

Rau had refused to drive the city’s Pride Bus because he said as a Christian, he couldn’t condone the behaviours and lifestyles associated with Pride.

A Calgary Transit spokesperson declined to comment on what he described as “personnel matters.” Director Doug Morgan said he couldn’t talk about any specific employee issues.

“We do have a code of conduct that helps guide our behaviour and we expect all employees to follow that code of conduct,” said Morgan. “We need to make sure that [transit drivers] operate appropriately and deliver great service to Calgarians.”

“If there was a violation–and again I can’t speak on a specific incident–we would take action and have a discussion with employees and see what happened, and investigate and then take action if those policies were breached.”

Rau presented the below letter of termination of employment to reporters Friday afternoon:

Calgary Transit worker says he was fired for refusing to drive rainbow bus PDF Print E-mail

A Calgary transit bus driver says he was fired because he stood up for his religious beliefs.

Jesse Rau says he was fired from his job as a Calgary Transit driver because of his religious beliefs and refusal to drive the pride bus.

Jesse Rau initially publicly said he would quit his job as a Calgary Transit driver if he was made to drive the rainbow flag wrapped city bus because he’s a Christian and can’t support homosexuality.
 
Now, in a statement Thursday, Rau said he’d been fired from his job after his Facebook wall was “monitored by his employers,” and he made a public plea to the media “for his right to abstain from promoting the homosexual parade, which goes directly against his Christian beliefs.”

“I was shocked when my supervisor called me in to chastise me about my personal Facebook posts and to inform me that if I wanted to have a good career with the Calgary Transit, that I should stop posting my personal opinions,” he said in his statement. “I never would have imagined that I was not free to express my personal opinions about the changes going on our society in my private time.”

Doug Morgan, director of Calgary Transit, said he was unable to speak to specific employee issues, but said Calgary Transit has a code of conduct that "helps guide our behaviour," that all employees are expected to follow.

"We set that policy up so employees can know what is expected of them in the workplace and customers get to realize that when they are out on the bus," he said.

Morgan said their policy surrounding social media posts that are made publically is simple.

"We want to make sure they reflect truthfulness in the corporation," he said. "We want it to be a true and accurate reflection of what we do in the community."

Rau is connected to street preacher Art Pawlowksi, whose street church has suggested in the past that the 2013 floods were caused in part by Calgary's participation in the annual pride parades.  

Pawlowski has also had several run-ins with the city over noise bylaw infraction involving a loud speaker used for his street preaching.

Pawlowski, however, has claimed he’s never been criminally convicted despite 10 arrests, more than roughly 200 citations and 80 court appearances.

Pawlowski is responsible for both stirring up Rau's initial complaint and also made media aware of Rau's situation via press release Thursday night.

Rau said he didn’t think he might lose his job because of his personal posts, and said Calgary Transit has gone against their own rule that “no ideologies are to be promoted through their organization,” by telling transit employees they would have to drive the pride bus.

Metro has reached out to Calgary Transit who said they would make a statement following Rau’s press conference.

Calgary Transit driver refuses to drive Pride bus, citing ‘radical sexual movement’ PDF Print E-mail

Global News

CALGARY – A bus driver with Calgary Transit who faced backlash after telling reporters he’d quit before driving a bus decked out in rainbow colours for the city’s Pride festival explained his actions on Monday. City manager Jeff Fielding responded to the man’s position, saying he was not aware of any formal complaints or declarations involving a refusal to drive the bus.

Jesse Rau said he refused to drive the bus unveiled last week because as a Christian, he can’t condone the behaviours and lifestyles associated with Pride, which he said the Bible calls sinful.

Flanked by his wife and two sons,  Rau said it comes down to a “few people” at Calgary Transit who are trying to impose their beliefs on him and other drivers at a press conference Monday.

“There’s a few people that clearly have taken advantage of the climate right now, where people are afraid to speak out against this radical sexual movement that’s happening for fear of leaving their job.”

“So a few people have taken advantage of that within Calgary Transit and have pushed their personal ideologies, their personal beliefs, their personal agenda onto the employees,” said Rau.

Three weeks ago, Rau said Transit officials asked him to remove an anti-pride Facebook post from his personal account. He said he complied with that request.

Rau said after his shift this past weekend, he was told to see a supervisor and was told then that he was texting while driving, which he vehemently denied doing.

He said he loves his job and refuses to quit. When asked if he thought he’d be fired over his comments, he said he didn’t feel he’d get fired because of the current media attention, but then added: “my goose is cooked.”

Fielding said the city expects staff to live up to its standards, code of practices and to “understand the responsibility they have as a city of Calgary employee.”

“We haven’t had a declaration from the employee in terms of whether or not he wanted to drive the bus or not; we haven’t had that conversation,” said Fielding. “Anything that precipitates out of this will be addressed by our code of conduct. If it’s a personnel matter, we’ll discuss that at the time.”

Fielding said there was no discussion to pull the Pride-decorated bus. He said the city is “doing the right things” and feels it has the support of the community.

Meantime, Calgary Pride organizers said Monday its focus is on “celebrating diversity with all Calgarians this week during the biggest Pride in Calgary’s history.”

A Friday statement from Pride spokesperson Craig Sklenar said: “This is a matter between Calgary Transit and their employees. We are happy with our first ever partnership with Calgary Transit and look forward to a great Pride Week.”

The Rainbow Pride Bus will travel on Route 2 starting at 4:15 p.m. Monday and will travel various routes throughout the week.

Calgary Transit driver who refused to drive rainbow bus allegedly relieved of duties PDF Print E-mail
Written by CTV   
Saturday, 12 September 2015 04:08

Speaking through his church, bus driver Jesse Rau says he has been fired from his position with Calgary Transit two weeks after expressing his unwillingness to operate the ‘Ride with Pride’ rainbow bus due to his Christian beliefs.

On August 27, the day of the Pride Bus unveiling, Rau told CTV Calgary that he feared for the future of his promising career over his refusal to drive a bus that ‘clearly promoted the homosexual movement’.

“I have a family to support and I am very concerned about losing the job,” said Rau on August 27. “It’s something I’m very proud to be a part of, but when it goes against the most important things I stand for, or if I’m asked to compromise in such a big way for what I believe to be right, then I have to lose my job.”

Street Church pastor Artur Pawlowski confirms Rau, a member of his church, was fired after undergoing a special meeting with transit management that concentrated on Rau’s personal beliefs and social media posts.

Calgary Transit will not comment on personnel matters.

Jesse Rau, Calgary Transit Driver, Says He Was Fired Over Pride Bus Stance PDF Print E-mail

 |  By

The Calgary Transit bus driver who refused to drive a rainbow-wrapped city bus during the city's Gay Pride festival claims he has been fired.

Jesse Rau said in a statement via his church that he was called in to work Thursday and told be was being dismissed.

"I was shocked when my supervisor called me in to chastise me about my personal Facebook posts and to inform me that if I wanted to have a good career with the Calgary Transit, that I should stop posting my personal opinions on Facebook," Rau said in the statement.

"I never would have imagined that I was not free to express my personal opinions about the changes going on our society in my private time. Nor would I have imagined that my job would be on the line because of it."

Rau, who has worked for Calgary Transit for about a year, went to the media late last month saying he would quit his job if he was assigned to drive the "Pride Bus." He said he's a Christian and can't support homosexuality.

In the statement, Rau said he was "grilled for five hours" during a "special meeting" that felt "more like an interrogation."

He claims that prior to his dismissal he was being considered for a supervisor position based on his good work performance.

Last month Doug Morgan, director of Calgary Transit, said drivers can only refuse to work based on safety issues.

"What we would do is open a dialogue with them and chat with them and ask them about their issues and making sure we're being sensitive to their beliefs, but overall the service has to go out and we would ask them to drive the bus," Morgan said at the time.

Calgary Transit has not commented on the alleged firing.
