Persecution of Atlanta's Fire Chief

The mayor of Atlanta has dismissed the fire chief, Kelvin Cochran, for the simple reason that Cochran published a book which the mayor found offensive because the book cites Scripture in describing marriage as being between one man and one woman. Heaven help us! What is American coming to? Fortunately, a Christian legal defense team is assisting Cochran in suing the mayor, Kasim Reed, and the city of Atlanta for violating his constitutional rights to free speech and free exercise of religion. Obviously, Cochran’s book had nothing to do with his job. He is guilty of discriminating against no one. Cochran, an African-American, is a member of Elizabeth Baptist Church in Atlanta, affiliated with the Georgia Baptist Convention – of which I used to be a member. Cochran is such an outstanding fireman that he was appointed U.S. fire administrator by President Obama before Atlanta’s leadership pleaded with him to come back to Atlanta. Fortunately, this issue is taking hold in Georgia. Several of the state’s delegation members to Congress are alarmed. Protest against the city of Atlanta is gaining steam. As it should. Cochran’s book is entitled, “Who Told You That You Were Naked?” (The title is taken from the Bible in Genesis, chapter 3.) Obviously, Cochran should be entitled to his personal biblical views. Attorney David Cortman of the Alliance Defending Freedom, says, “…In America, a religious test cannot be used to fire a public servant.” You can read more about this online at The Florida Baptist Witness website.
