Skip to comments.Atlanta fire chief canned for politically incorrect LGBT book gets day in court

In an opinion piece published nearly three years ago by the NY Times Editorial Board, we learned that terminating people of faith from public sector jobs is not only acceptable but demanded if they hold politically incorrect views on LGBT matters.
The tolerant liberals running the Times shared this little tidbit following the termination of Kelvin Cochran from his position as chief of the Atlanta Fire Department, a position where he was recognized as the 2012 Fire Chief of the Year after declining a Senate-approved appointment by Barack Obama to be FEMAs US Fire Administrator in 2010.
In other words, this guy knows his stuff.
So, what did Cochran do to deserve termination? He self-published a book in 2013 for his mens Bible study group entitled, Who Told You That You are Naked? In the book, Cochran shared his faith in God and admonished men to remain sexually pure by pointing out what Scripture has to say about ALL types of sexual sinnot just homosexuality.
Uncleanness whatever is opposite of purity; including sodomy, homosexuality, lesbianism, pederasty, bestiality, all other forms of sexual perversion.
Naked men refuse to give in, so they pursue sexual fulfillment through multiple partners, with the opposite sex, the same sex and sex outside of marriage and many other vile, vulgar and inappropriate ways which defile their body-temple and dishonor God.
This concept shouldnt be all that extreme considering the sexual harassment epidemic we are witnessing. But hey, these are LGBT extremists we are talking about, where anything goes when it comes to sex. And those who reject that lie will be drawn and quarteredor at least denied their Constitutional rights.
While the mayor of Atlanta, Kasim Reed, used a short list of Human Resources Department technicalities to terminate Cochran, Reed essentially admitted that Cochrans book was the real basis of firing him because it contained so-called homophobic language.
In reality, Cochrans book was an expression of ideals held by the Orthodox Christians for centuries on things like traditional marriage and sexual puritywhich, of course, the Gay Mafia adamantly opposes.
The issue of the book aside, Cochran never allowed his views on these topics to affect his job, a fact confirmed by an official investigation that preceded his termination. And that brings us back to the NY Timess justification for demanding his termination.
It should not matter that the investigation found no evidence that Mr. Cochran had mistreated gays or lesbians. His position as a high-level public servant makes his remarks (in the book) are especially problematic, and requires that he be held to a different standard.
Different standard? I thought liberals believed in treating everyone equally.
Fortunately, after years of fighting, Cochran finally got his day in federal court where he filed a civil rights lawsuit against the city of Atlanta for religious discrimination and denying him his First, Fifth, and Fourteenth Amendment rights. Hopefully, the courts ruling will be based on the Constitution and not on the NY Times Editorial Board.
What a great, courageous man. Of course, a true practicing Christian is not allowed in the evil Vice System in America today as this case proves. Imagine-—having to go to court in America where people are trying to force Satanism (a religion) in the work place (with their vile rites of baby-killing and sodomy) and a man with the worldview and religion of the Founders which created our Justice (virtue) System is demonized and destroyed for his beliefs (religion).
If this wasn’t so vile and evil, it would almost be funny.
Prayers up for this man. They’re trying to say that employees under him were offered the book, refused the book, and then the book was pushed on them, with termination threatened if they didn’t buy it. Obviously these are lies being promulgated by the city of Atlanta against this godly man.
I hope he never has to work another day in his life.Its true that the bill will fall on the taxpayers of the COA.Thats the government they voted for afterall so TFB.They get the government the deserve.
A professed believer, we know the end of his story...a happy ending in Heaven regardless of the outcome in the “earthly court system”. Those wayward souls will have their day in court. . .with God as Judge and Jury and Sentencer.
Actually, the Centers for Disease Control, the various state Sex Offender Registries, and the American Psychological Association should be tracking these disease-ridden whackjobs.
We either have freedom of religion or we dont.
This man should be the Mayor of Atlanta, not the SOB Kasim Reed. Black voters can’t seem to pick anyone with moral character today. They always opt for the “Free $hit Guy!”
A Muslim mayor fired a Christian fireman because of the Christian’s beliefs?
