Various Christian and social conservative activist groups have launched petition campaigns requesting that the mayor of Atlanta reinstate the city’s former fire chief, who was fired last week after the city investigated a book he wrote that included short passages affirming his Christian belief that homosexuality is wrong.

Family Research Council, National Organization for Marriage, The American Family Association, Life Site News, and Faith Driven Consumer have all launched online petitions that’ve received thousands of signatures, thus far, in support of the canned fire chief, Kelvin Cochran.

After Cochran released his religious book, Who Told You You Are Naked? for a Bible study at his church, which gay activists claim is intolerant, he was suspended without pay in November by the city’s mayor, Kasim Reed, for one month. Upon returning to work last week, the mayor informed Cochran that he was fired.

According to media reports, there are two passages in Cochran’s 160-page book that were found to be critical of homosexuality, and deemed by some on the city council as conflicting with the views of the city. READ MORE

We must stand up for our rights if we expect to keep them. Sign one, or all of the petitions to stand with this Christian brother. One day, we may need him to stand with us! Blessings and thank you in advance.

    Why is there the great emphasis on ‘social action’ by Christians
    – which I have never seen written in “the word of the LORD”??????

    How very few here in ‘Amerika’ actually believe that which “the Lord God Almighty” says in James 5:
    13) Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing psalms.
    13) Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing psalms.
    14) Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:
    15) And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.
    16) Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed.
    THE EFFECTUAL FERVENT PRAYER OF A RIGHTEOUS MAN AVAILETH MUCH.
    – 17) Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months.
    – 18) And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit.

    Is the weakness of our faith here in ‘Amerika’ the reason that ‘the Church’ is so weak, and has so little affect upon our country?
    It is my Biblical understanding that that which is written about “the Lord Jesus Christ” in Matthew 13:58 should be taken absolutely seriously by us all:
    “And he did not many mighty works there
    BECAUSE OF THEIR UNBELIEF.”

    – Will I personally Pray for Fire Captain Kelvin Cochran – YES
    – Will I personally tell others about my Brother in Jesus Christ who has been fired for his Christian Faith – YES
    – Will I personally sign any petition – NO

    IF anyone can show me 2 or more verses from “the word of the LORD” – from the KJB – that will clearly show that I am wrong in my understanding – PLEASE show me!

    – CAPITALization and emphasis of “the word of God” mine – Bro. Nick
