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
