FIRECHIEF

By Blaze and Spitfire AMERICAS FREEDOM FIGHTERS –

A veteran firefighter, chief of the Atlanta fire department, was fired. Kelvin Cochran expressed his religious beliefs in a book he wrote. Is this infringing on the freedom of religion, his freedom of speech, or is it another example of political correctness killing our country?

Mr. Cochran, a veteran firefighter, is also a deeply religious man, and he was eager to bring his Christian faith into the daily functioning of his department — or, as he put it in a book he authored in 2013, to “cultivate its culture to the glory of God.” But, as the book revealed, his religious beliefs also include virulent anti-gay views. He was fired on Jan. 6 by Atlanta’s mayor Kasim Reed for homophobic language in the book, “Who Told You That You Were Naked?” Among other things, he called homosexuality a “perversion,” compared it to bestiality and pedophilia, and said homosexual acts are “vile, vulgar and inappropriate.”

Cue up the outraged claims that Mr. Cochran’s rights to free speech and religious freedom have been violated — an assertion that is as wrong as it was predictable. Mr. Cochran said he was fired “for no reason other than my Christian faith.” But he and his sudden coterie of supporters have it backward. This case is not about free speech or religious freedom. It is, as Mr. Reed said at a news conference, about “making sure that we have an environment in government where everyone, no matter who they love, can come to work from 8 to 5:30 and do their job and then go home without fear of being discriminated against.”

This is an outrage, we talk about the freedoms in this country, but what freedoms do we really have? The department was afraid of civil lawsuits, but he never said it publicly, he wrote it in a book. Political correctness needs to be abolished and our freedoms restored!
