Alliance Defending Freedom at Sugar Creek Baptist Church
Religious Freedom is the bedrock principle upon which our country was birthed. But that foundational truth is under increasingly aggressive attack. Join us as we share inspirational and motivational stories of victory and learn our winning strategies. Among the evening’s speakers, former Atlanta Fire Chief, Kelvin Cochran.
Kelvin Cochran dedicated 30 years of his life fighting fires and protecting the communities in which he lived and worked. Inspired by his faith, Kelvin wrote a book titled, “Who Told You That You Were Naked?” a book which details the state of man since the fall of man in Genesis. The book also briefly discusses the clear biblical teaching that sex is reserved for marriage between a man and a woman. The mere statement of this well-known Christian belief, in a book written for men’s Bible study in his off-time, drew the ire of people seeking to redefine marriage who claim that Kelvin, in his official capacity as fire chief, shouldn’t be able to keep his job because of his thoughts and beliefs don’t conform to theirs.
The City of Atlanta initially suspended Chief Cochran for 30 days without pay and ordered that he undergo sensitivity training. An investigation revealed that he had not discriminated against anyone, but at the end of his suspension he was fired. Through their actions, the City of Atlanta is saying that Chief Cochran’s biblical values and speech are not only less important than those of people who disagree with the Bible on the topic of sex and marriage, they are punishable by termination.
