Fire Chief Loses His Job After Controversy Over Christian Book

Atlanta fire chief Kelvin Cochran, who was suspended and subsequently terminated over comments he wrote in a book titled, “Who Told You That You Are Naked?” has received support from Christians groups who believe that he should be reinstated to his post.

But Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed, who officially announced the firing Tuesday, said at a press conference that Cochran’s judgement was at the center of his firing, citing a Bible verse to make his case against the former fire chief, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

“I, too, am a person of very deep religious faith … 1 Corinthians 14:40 says, ‘Let all things be done decently and in order’ and I want to make very clear in my judgement that was not done here,” Reed proclaimed. “Chief Cochran’s book … was published in violation of the city’s standards of conduct, which require prior approval of the ethics officer and the board of ethics.” ...

Free speech has been lost in America and also liberty of conscience. Political correctness is the new national orthodoxy and a New Inquisition is erecting its persecutory machinery!
