New York, USA, 2011: Brain-washed religious freaks think they can trample on civil law and human decency.
From The New York World:
[…] But as the bus began to fill up, the men told her that she had to get up. Move to the back, they insisted.
They were Orthodox Jews with full beards, sidecurls and long black coats, who told her that she was riding a “private bus” and a “Jewish bus.” When she asked why she had to move, a man scolded her. “If God makes a rule, you don’t ask ‘Why make the rule?’”
The bus company has a board of consulting rabbis, which decreed that male passengers should ride in the front of the bus and female passengers in the back.
Apparently, after pressure from decent, normal human beings, the company running the buses has agreed to end the practice. In theory.
