    The Mayor is doing a little political CYA
    So let me get this straight, the Mayor's office discriminated against Mr. Cochran for discriminating against homosexuals?

    There was no discrimination. [except against Cochran] It was totally imagined by the Mayor's office.

    points covered in this paragraph (which is a whole sentence ..., not exactly a paragraph (*jokingly shakes his fist at news paper people*))

    Mr Reed has some political challenges between opposing lobby groups

    Ok, this still does not say the homosexuals or bisexuals directly caused this firing...

    so, do you have any proof?

    So the Mayor's office imagined that Mr. Cochran gave workers a religious book he wrote containing passages that condemn homosexuality?

    anti-descrimination policies are a standard set of HR policies in any place of employment, why do you somehow think the city of atlanta is unusual in this regard?

    which is it, are there laws or policies he crossed created by the gay agenda or was it totally imaginary? you are making inconsistent arguments.

    No,

    “Despite my respect for Chief Cochran’s service, I believe his actions and decision-making undermine his ability to effectively manage a large, diverse work force,” Mr. Reed said. “Every single employee under the fire chief’s command deserves the certainty that he or she is a valued member of the team and that fairness and respect guide employment decisions.”

    In the Mayor's opinion, Cochran *might* discriminate due to his held beliefs.

    So it is your stance that we should allow discrimination in the public work place and it is a form of discrimination not to?
