Skanky taxis

It's 1130 on a wet Thursday night in Glasgow. You just want to get home to your bed. yet the only taxi at the rank is covered in sponsorship by a lap dancing club. The sort of place that exploits the women who work there and the sad men who go there. Do you get in the taxi.? Of course not. I hope if this scenario came my way I'd politely decline and tell the driver why, hopefully without sounding like a prig.

My boys hate following taxis like that or buses even advertising 'gentlemens' (yeah right!) clubs. To practice custody of the eyes these days means they'd practically fall over..& they're only 8 & 10!

Gaun yersel on this one Paulinus.

It made me think, and, to be honest, I will be checking the decals from here-on.

(Fortunately the last "branded" taxi i was in was in Edinburgh last week and plugged Crunchie bars. I am glad to say it never took me from my lenten choco-sacrifice.)

What a wonderful witness, great evangelisation, great courage. Christians often wonder how they can proclaim the Gospel, and it can be something as simple as choosing a taxi ride. Congratulations.
