Ken Shupe, a 51 year old "conservative" Christian tow truck driver was called to the scene of an accident, in Asheville, North Carolina, and then refused to aid the disabled victim, Cassandra McWade, when he saw her Bernie Sanders bumper sticker.


“He said, ‘I can’t tow you ... you’re a Bernie supporter,’” McWade recalled. “I was like, ‘Wait, are you serious? You’re kidding me.’”



“I’m a conservative Christian, I’ve just drawn a line in the sand,” he said. “I’m not going to associate or conduct business with them.”



Shupe said he’s never done something like this before. But if someone had stickers supporting Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton on their car, he probably wouldn’t tow them either. “I have the same principles there,” he said.


SOURCE

What would tow truck driver Jesus do?

Ms McWade had to wait in her car, on the side of the road, for another 2 1/2 hours for the next tow truck driver to respond, hoping the next driver wasn't a "conservative" Christian I would suspect!

It seems to me that this kind of behavior is enough to suspend the tow truck operator's right to collect auto insurance reimbursement money in the future, and perhaps even suspend his "tow truck" license or certification, or whatever one needs to get a call from the state and/or be on an insurance provider's list, to attend to accidents altogether.

Right wing politics and religion have blurred into one big bigoted mess of fear and loathing! I have a feeling that this kind of stunt is only the "tip of the ice berg" of what the religious right is capable of, when it comes to their thinking that doing their job, and/or civic duty, violates their closely held "religious beliefs" if it means they have to assist people with different political views.

Shaking my head and wondering what's going to happen when Hillary wins the presidency!!!!

Oh, I thought the victim was left torn up and bloody, from the title.

Well, we'll see. Maybe people shouldn't have been forcing people to do stuff?

What if something happened to that women during the 2 1/2 hours she sat on the side of the road waiting for help? What if she had been robbed, raped or murdered, while she sat their vulnerable and alone?

There are literally millions of self described Christians in the world that don't actually follow Christ. They have become tainted with their own self importance which happens to many people Christian and non Christian. Any person who must make a public statement of being Christian, and then do non Christian things like this tow truck driver are following their own glory and not Christ's.

Same kind of thing where people give to a charity, but do it so lots of people observe them doing it, which shows they are doing it for their own glory and not Christ's.

The tow truck driver had the public need to claim he is Christian, and feels first claiming this makes his actions holy.

They don't.

AGREE, the word"victim" gave the wrong impression of some type of accident, but that's good asonly a "victim vehicle"......

You do this often.

Because the bathroom issue has nothing to do with this.

Like people posting gun rights in the "bathroom" threads.

Sorry. Just getting to me I guess.

The way I read it, Annee was tacitly agreeing with you in a terse/adolecesent sort of way.......

Lame-o!

What does this have to do with the Transgender issue?

Like someone who just brought Gun Rights into the Transgender bathroom thread.

Netflix here I come. I need a break.

Really?? Because it sounds like a petty douche bag Republican without any values to me.

You see, having values typically means they are aligned with helping your fellow man in need. Even your enemy sometimes. Someone you talk about loving and following said something to that effect once.

But you enjoy your petty acts of vengeance and I'm sure you'll be rewarded for it like you're always talking about.

Ok. Where I am from and the time period I am from being called "lame" is an insult.

It's the same "lame" mindset and same "lame" excuse to act like a jerk to people who are different.
