A bus driver has been suspended after refusing to drive a vehicle which celebrated gay pride.
Passenger Rebecca Sears, 19, claimed a Konectbus driver at Norwich Bus Station insisted on swapping buses as the one he was in 'promoted homosexuality'.
She said that the driver, who appeared to be in his 50s with grey hair, was referring to the vehicle's service number which featured the colours of the gay-pride rainbow flag.
Rebecca said: 'He said we have to wait a minute, he said I am not driving this bus because it promotes homosexuality.
'I was standing with two other women and we kind of thought he was joking, in a weird way. Like we were just thinking is it really that big of a deal.
'I thought it was all just quite bad, it made us 10 minutes late - which isn't bad when its more a legit reason but for that sort of reason it is.'
Rebecca went to the bus station's front desk to report what had happened as the driver moved to another double-decker vehicle and allowed passengers to board.
She added: 'I said to them that he had gone to swap buses and that it is ridiculous because that is just a ridiculous reason.
'You are stopping people from getting home for such a ridiculous reason. It is really bad.'
Go East Anglia, which runs the Konectbus service, said the driver involved has been suspended and that a full investigation was under way.
She added: 'I just hope that he hasn't said that in front of somebody that is gay.
'I would hate to think he would say something to them.
'He didn't know if I was gay or the other two women I was with. He just out right said it.'

I’m guessing the driver isn’t Muslim.
Suspended?? That just keeps him from suing the Bus Company, right?
He refused to take the mark of the beast and will pay for it.
She made it a bigger deal than the bus driver.
People like her think there is only one point of view, hers.
All other points of view are ‘Hateful’.
It’s a very weak, robotic, childish way of thinking.
Just wait Rebecca until the Muslims take over. It won’t be as mild as refusing to drive a bus because it promotes gay pride, it will be off with the heads of those who are gay along with those who support gay behavior.
Amen! True Christians will not bow to Homofascism
What she really wanted to say was "All you straight people just get into the closet for all eternity."
She added: ‘I said to them that he had gone to swap buses and that it is ridiculous because that is just a ridiculous reason.
At this point I would have put her on a new Bus then Painted Swastikas and We love Adolf on the side before they drove away
I wouldn’t drive it either. Not only that - I wouldn’t let my kids on it either.
Yes, they would go to a school where perversity is glorified. But lines must be drawn.
Oh. Need to read slower. This is NOT a school bus.
“He refused to take the mark of the beast and will pay for it.”
In this world maybe but not in the next, if you get my meaning.
A man acts like a man and the modern world doesn’t understand. The abomination became the nation. And then....
These people think the fools that call Ged a liar and promote the sexual invasion of transportation are to be respected. They are not respecting.
In which case, OK to be anti-f-a-g.
Give that man a job elsewhere.
Good for him. He has convictions. I wouldn’t promote homosexuality either, it’s against my religion.
