Quote of the Week - Kevin Cochran

“People of any faith, when they’re strong in their faith, they would choose to live out their faith over keeping their job,” Cochran said. “But that should not even be a dilemma for any American in this country.”

Kevin Cochran was fired as the Atlanta Fire Chief after gay activists attacked him for a book he wrote titled Who Told You You Were Naked?

“In the United States of America, we are guaranteed the freedom to live without fear of being terminated or experiencing any adverse action for the free expression of our beliefs and thoughts,” Cochran said. “It was an injustice against me on that basis.”

An individual's belief in his faith should transcend his keeping his job.

For example, a husband and wife, who owned a U.S. bakery, recently closed down their bakery permanently, rather than keeping it open by agreeing to a court decision to bake a cake for a lesbian couple. For the bakery owners, their Christian faith was more important than the court ruling or keeping their bakery open.
