On July 24, 2001, The Houston Chronicle reported that "a Houston emergency medical technician has sued a private ambulance company [for religious discrimination], saying it forced him to quit his job after he quoted Scripture and discussed Jesus with patients en route to the hospital...[Andrew] Colvin wasn't proselytizing, the suit says, but was consoling patients and their family members when he spoke about Christian matters."
