Atlanta Fire Chief Kelvin Cochran suspended for gay comments in Christian book he wrote

(Apparently, a Christian cannot have freedom of speech.)

Atlanta Fire Chief Kelvin Cochran has been suspended without pay for one month and must undergo sensitivity training for authoring a Christian book in 2013 that described homosexuality as a “sexual perversion,” the Washington Times reports.

Mayor Kasim Reed’s spokeswoman Anne Torres said the administration didn’t know about book, titled “Who Told You That You Are Naked?” until employees came forward with complaints last week, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

The book identifies Mr. Cochran as Atlanta’s fire chief and says it’s his first priority as chief is to run the department “to cultivate its culture to the glory of God,” a local ABC affiliate reported.
