Atlanta’s fire chief has been suspended after city officials say he violated policy by self-publishing a book that describes homosexuality as a “perversion.”

Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed says in a statement Monday that Kelvin Cochran will be suspended for a month without pay and will be required to complete sensitivity training.

Reed says he was “deeply disturbed” after learning about the book on Friday and will not tolerate discrimination within his administration.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the book titled “Who Told You That You Are Naked?” identifies Cochran as a devout Christian and as the city’s fire chief (http:// bit.ly/1y6v1mf). City councilmember Alex Wan, who is openly gay, says Reed should investigate whether Cochran’s views have affected LGBT employees.

  1. It’s sad how people are so attached to their sin as their identity; and how its become so ingrained into our culture, that others will lash out at anyone who dares to tell them the truth on it.

    Lord help us.

  2. By the way, last time I checked, the South was almost all Southern Baptist and in the case of the Latinos, Roman Catholic. So going against the majority of the people in your district might be hazardous to you getting re-elected to dog catcher much less the Mayor of a City.
