Georgia Mayor: "Christians who work for the government had better keep their mouths shut"
Christians who work for the government had better keep their mouths shut about their beliefs.At least, that's the message Atlanta, Georgia mayor Kasim Reed sent last week after suspending Fire Chief Kelvin Cochran.
You see, Chief Cochran dared to publish a book that defended Traditional Values and condemned sexual immorality as "vile, vulgar, and inappropriate."
When this book was brought to Mayor Reed's attention, he suspended Chief Cochran for a month without pay.
"As the president of Public Advocate, I'm committed to using our 33 years of grassroots expertise to defend Religious Liberty in America. With your help, I'm confident we can continue the momentum from the pro-Family midterm wave that shattered the Homosexual Lobby's stranglehold on Congress. As the lame duck Congress continues and your Public Advocate prepares to meet the new Congress in January, your support is more critical now than ever," Public Advocate's Eugene Delgaudio said.
Red State Reports:
Chief Cochran is an evangelical Christian who has not shied away from his faith in the past. He left the Atlanta Fire Department to take a job in the Obama Administration. He returned, however, to the city he loves to head its Fire Department. But the gay mafia is loudly complaining that Chief Cochran, by writing this book, will suddenly now not put out the fires of gay homes, or something like that.
Specifically, the accusation is that by being honest about his orthodox Christian views on sex and marriage, Chief Cochran is undermining the public trust in him. You'd think the government would appreciate Kelvin Cochran being a role model to young black men in Atlanta, but they are instead much more focused on not offending the gay rights community.
What Mayor Reed and the gay rights community are saying is that if you work for government you cannot be open about your Christian faith. Again, you will be made to care.
