Oh, this clears it all up. Atlanta fire chief, Kelvin Cochran, wrote a book for his Bible study group in which he espoused actual Christian beliefs that included the teaching on homosexuality. He was fired.
But don't you call this religious discrimination. The Atlanta Mayor Chief who terminated his fire chief for being a Christians now says he didn't fire him for being a Christian at all. He fired him because he didn't shut up about being discriminated against like he told him to.
The mayor said he decided to terminate Cochran not just because the fire chief didn't consult him before publishing the book, but also spoke out about his suspension despite being told to remain quiet during the investigation into his leadership. What's more, Reed said he believes Cochran opened up the city to the potential for litigation over future discrimination claims.So there you have it. When your boss begins investigating you for being a Christian, you shut up about it if you know what's good for you. Got it.
Reed stressed that his decision is not because of Cochran's faith: "His religious (beliefs) are not the basis of the problem. His judgment is the basis of the problem."
