A former Atlanta fire chief who lost his job for standing on his Christian principles has been honored by the nation’s most prominent Christian media association. The National Religious Broadcaster’s gave Kelvin Cochran its 2016 Faith and Freedom Award for standing strong in the face of religious persecution. In 2014, Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed received complaints about a men’s devotional book Cochran had written. In the devotional, Cochran included a passage on the biblical views on sex, including a statement against homosexuality. Mayor Reed ordered Cochran to complete a “sensitivity training” and later fired him for “discrimination.” Read this man’s story of faith and commitment at http://go.cbn.com/12749.
