Atlanta fire chief fired for Christian faith

Kelvin Cochran, fire chief of Atlanta for several years, was fired because of a book he wrote for his church.

Mayor Kasim Reed said,
“I want to be clear that the material in Chief Cochran’s book is not representative of my personal beliefs, and is inconsistent with the Administration’s work to make Atlanta a more welcoming city for all of her citizens -- regardless of their sexual orientation, gender, race and religious beliefs,”

Why are the mayor's personal beliefs the standard? He also claimed the book contained judgment and that is not protected speech.

In Atalanta there is free speech only for certain groups.
