"Christians Rally to Defend Fire Chief Who Wrote ‘Anti-Gay’ Book"
Todd Starnes has the story behind this at Townhall.com:
"Reed told reporters Cochran was not fired because of his religious beliefs. Rather, he said, the fire chief was ousted because of poor judgment. The mayor accused the chief of not getting permission to write the book – a charge Cochran denies.
The mayor also alleged Cochran distributed the book to members of the fire department. Cochran readily admits that he gave copies of the book to close associates within the department. It should be noted that the individual who initially complained about the book did not receive a copy from the fire chief.
And for the record – a city investigation determined the fire chief had not discriminated against LGBT employees."
