FIRE CHIEF FIRED FOR VIEWS ON HOMOSEXUALITY HAS DAY IN COURT

The city of Atlanta is asking a federal judge to toss out of court a wrongful discharge suit filed by former Fire Chief Kelvin Cochran, who was fired by the mayor in January after he wrote a men’s devotional book for a Baptist church group that was critical of homosexuality.

A hearing was held Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Atlanta, and a decision is expected within 30 days.

Cochran wrote the book on his own time and says he was fired solely because of the religious views he expressed in the book with regard to homosexuality, which he included along with bestiality and other sexual activity as against God’s natural order.
