(Renew America) -- Kelvin Cochran was fired this week as the chief of the Atlanta fire department. He was fired for one reason: he is a sincere Christian. It has now become a fire-able offense in Atlanta to believe the Bible. Mao, Stalin and Ho Chi Minh couldn't have done it any better.
Businesses in Atlanta may as well hang a sign in their windows: "Christians need not apply."
Cochran wrote a self-published 160-page book for the men in his Bible study at the church he attends. For the crime of devoting a whole half-page to the topic of a biblical view of sexuality, he's out of a job.

He correctly described homosexuality as a "sexual perversion," which it is. It twists, distorts and, yes, perverts God's design for human sexuality. "Perversion" may seem like a strong term. But it's an accurate one, and requires absolutely no apology from the chief.
