    Except he was fired for discrimination not for passing out religious ramblings.

    So anyone that it is not appropriate to discriminate against in the public work place is a protected class, ok then that means EVERYONE is a protected class.

    There were no pamphlets and nothing was said about him giving the 'books' at work.

    I'm not at all surprised that people who express bigoted ideas are suffering for them. Cloaking it in religion doesn't excuse it or justify it. It doesn't when it came to matters of race. It doesn't when it comes to matters of gender. It doesn't when it comes to matters of sexuality. If a person is going to display the low quality of their character and reveal themselves to be so crass and base, it's no wonder that people won't want to work with them.

    This fire chief with "antigay views" isn't standing up for some religious conviction. He's just a jackass. That's all. Just a low kind of person without basic civility. Of course he'll be treated as such.

    "The statement from Wan said the suspension came after some of Cochran's employees complained about internal distribution of his self-published book. Mayor Reed would not discuss details of the investigation."

    That's his Constitutional right.
