they go hand in hand and that still is no reason to fire someone.Second, there is a difference between stating as a religious person you try to glorify god in all that you do....and stating that your first priority as a professional is to cultivate a culture that glorifies him.
The first is talking about you personally and your own actions. The second, talking about cultivating a CULTURE, suggests your acting on your environment and the things around you. That is different.
I was commenting about what you said was in his book. that he was saying gays were equal to this or that. he didn't say that at all.However, again I note...there's a difference in saying "I think it's okay that he said it" and denying he said it at all, which you did initially.
all the reasons they gave were bunk. there was no issue with this person at all till a homosexual didn't like the fact that he did a study book for his church.Again, stop ignorantly claiming your opinion and guesses as if they're undisputable facts. They're not. There are a number of official reasons given by the city as to why he was terminated; none were "expressing his religious beliefs".
so far there are no official reasons given that hold any tangible argument. the only thing is that a city council member who is openly gay didn't like what he wrote in his study book.
to bad for him that study book is protected by federal laws. as well as the Chiefs religious views.
how is it not? it all goes back to the book that he wrote.I haven't seen where they've definitively claimed he has violated discrimination laws, and that claim is not seemingly the basis of their termination of him.
If HE is alledging that they terminated him due to discrimination its on him to prove that, as discrimination is an affirmative defense.
The mayor’s office opened an investigation into Cochran’s conduct after employees shared concerns over the book’s contents, city spokeswoman Anne Torres said in November. At the time, Torres said “there are a number of passages in the book that directly conflict with the city’s nondiscrimination policies.”
unless he was enforcing those views at work which there is no evidence that he was this is a bogus investigation.
Chief Cochran also failed to notify me, as Mayor and Chief Executive of the City of Atlanta and his employer, of his plans to publish the book and its inflammatory content.

he gave the mayor a copy of the book a year ago.
I hope he sues the city for mega bucks. religious discrimination is against the law. He got permission to write the book and the mayor knows it.
Your making the claim it is up to you to back that up or prove he is lying.Prove a negative. That makes sense.
His only mistake was not getting it in writing. always get it in writing.He is the one making the claim that an action DID take place. He is the one alledging that his termination was due to fraudulent reasons. He needs to provide the proof that he did what they claim he did not. If he did, he should be able to provide evidence of it either through his own means or via legal means in obtaining their records.
However I see no reason for him to lie and everything for the mayor to do what he did.
there is a suit coming and the city is in major trouble.
