Franklin Graham’s Statement on Firing of Kelvin Cochran

A religious freedom rally on Jan. 13 was held in Atlanta to support Kelvin Cochran, who was fired because of his faith in Jesus Christ

Franklin Graham urged Christians to attend the Standing for Our Faith Rally at the Georgia State Capitol on Tuesday on behalf of former Atlanta fire chief Kelvin Cochran, who was fired because of his faith in Jesus Christ.

Cochran was suspended and then fired because of a book he wrote for a men’s Bible study group at his Baptist church.

“Cochran … was persecuted and denied his career because of his privately held religious beliefs,” Graham said in a statement released last week. “This is true discrimination.”

The latest target of politically correct bullying against Bible believing Christians is Atlanta’s former fire chief Kelvin Cochran. That’s right, I said “former.” Cochran was fired Tuesday because of a small passage—less than half a page—in a book he wrote for his church’s Bible study group.

The book on biblical morality simply restates God’s position put forth in His Word, the Bible. From Cochran’s book: “Uncleanness—whatever is opposite of purity; including sodomy, homosexuality, lesbianism, pederasty, bestiality, all other forms of sexual perversion.”

I personally know Chief Cochran. He served as chairman of my Crusade in Shreveport in 2005. He is a fearless man of great faith.
