Atlanta fire chief suspended for authoring Christian book that denounces homosexuality

City Councilman Alex Wan said in a statement that he supports the administration’s decision.

“[Mr. Cochran’s] actions made it a difficult work environment for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender employees within the Atlanta Fire Rescue Department,” he said Tuesday. “This sends a strong message to employees about how much we value diversity and how we adhere to a non-discriminatory environment.”

  • I sure hope someone interrupts a brunch for this guy.

  • DMB

    In the name of diversity and adherence to a “non-discriminatory environment” they will discriminate against a Christian black man for not agreeing with the homosexual lifestyle. More bizarre yet city councilor Alex Wan who is an Asian was leading the cause to suspend a black man from his job by many in the homosexual agenda who are mostly white. Sounds like they truly value “diversity”.

    • They value diversity by firing everyone who doesn’t think in lock-step with them. It’s all very vibrant.

      • Jason

        yep, just like the Mozilla thing. As Mark Steyn said (speaking in particular of universities, but his words are generally applicable):
        “Universities [and apparently, fire stations] are … ‘safe spaces’ where delicate flowers of diversity of race, sex, orientation, ‘gender fluidity’ and everything else except diversity of thought have to be protected from exposure to any unsafe ideas.”

        Good use of the word vibrant!

        • I think at this point it might be the phoniest word in the English language.

          • Maggat

            Ya, pity.

    Oh my God, will the atrocities against gays in North American cities never stop. Why can’t these damn Christians give up their faith and join the united or anglican church.

      sad but true,

    • WalterBannon

      when is the jihad against gays starting anyway?

        From 60% you may expect unfettered persecution of non-believers and other religions, sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon and Jizya, the tax placed on infidels

        That’s 60% of a region, not the entire country.
        So Dearbornistan, say 2020-2025.

    anybody inquired as to the actual numbers of “offended GLBTHDCZZ” ? are there any at all?

    • Blacksmith

      no more than 2 percent of the population, and this line of work I expect there were somewhat less than that percentage.

      • ntt1

        so a highly trained specialist is discarded, what are the costs of replacement?

        • Blacksmith

          Cost schmost, as lond as the leftist progs are happy cost means nothing.

  • Progressive Liberal

    Its about time we ban those with offensive viewpoints from any employment and from being a student in post secondary education!

    With viewpoints like this you can bet in the middle of a fire he will ask a person what persuasion they are and if it isn’t straight male or straight female he might not rescue them.

    It is time we purge all these conservative Christians out of our society!

      Hey you can’t be a lawyer if you go to a Christian university.

    • Clausewitz

      I hope you’re being sarcastic.

  • Drunk_by_Noon

    Where was the last place that prevented people from working when they wrote books the government did not approve?

  • Maurixio Garcia S

    I agree with the Chief that book maybe was based in the
    real truth.

  • The Goat

    Diversity for me, but not for thee.

  • Blacksmith

    Seriously? all 10 of them in the greater Atlanta area don’t like working for this guy, he runs the whole show in the Atlanta area? Fek off you sniveling faggots……

  • Xavier

    Not one person commenting has yet used the response that would have been instantly uttered by any libtard: Racism!

    I am proud of you.

    • Minicapt

      I thought he just had a heavy tan …

    Atlanta Fire Rescue Department: “This sends a strong message to employees about how much we are fascists who do not value the US constitution”.

    Fire them all and contract this service out to the private sector.

  • There are people who wave around signs saying that one should kill cops or behead those who “insult” Islam. What’s being done about those nutbars?
