    So the internal HR policies that almost every place of employment in this country has about nondescrimination was not part of this decision? This is your stance?

    Mr. Reed had suspended Mr. Cochran for a month without pay in November, opening an investigation into whether Mr. Cochran’s authorship and distribution of the book to workers violated the city’s nondiscrimination policies. That move sparked a debate about religious liberty and freedom of expression: Last month, the 1.4-million member Georgia Baptist Convention began an online petition that called for Mr. Cochran’s reinstatement and suggested his First Amendment rights had been violated.
    point covered by this paragraph:
    1. cochran was suspended for distributing a book in a manner which violates HR policies
    2. This sparked a debate among groups that are not the fire department or city of atlanta
    3. there was a petition.

    So where does it state anything about gay and lesbian groups in this paragraph?

    Now homosexuals are a protected class ...

    The Mayor's office use discrimination as an excuse for the firing not, pushing religion in the work place.

    The Mayor is doing a little political CYA
