FRC’s Tony Per-KKK-ins Plays The Race Card Over Canned Anti-Gay Atlanta Fire Chief. Yes I Said The “Race Card”.

Tony Perkins FRC KKK

 

Next up we have the ever hating KKK connected Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council that has the NERVE to play the race card of all people.

“Atlanta’s Kelvin Cochran knows all about fire — but being fired? That’s a whole new experience — one Cochran hopes other Christians never face. The long-time member of the city’s Fire Rescue Department was forced out of the squad in a shocking display of anti-religious prejudice after a distinguished career that [sic] an appointment by the Obama administration as the U.S. Fire Administrator. Unfortunately for Cochran, Mayor Kasim Reed seems intent on making an example of the African-American, who self-published a book — with the permission of the mayor’s office — on biblical morality. After chatting with a handful of Christian co-workers, Kelvin offered them copies of Who Told You That You Were Naked? which includes a chapter on human sexuality that’s consistent with the Bible’s teaching on the subject. Despite the fact that Cochran had his superiors’ approval, and despite the fact that he only gave the book to friends, he was suspended late last year — until yesterday, when the Mayor fired him. Obviously, it’s one thing to use your platform to intimidate subordinates, but the idea that you should have to surrender your First Amendment rights merely for being a public servant is outrageous. What’s to prevent the government from going after another employer or contractor?”

Now ain’t that some shit.  KKK Grand Wizard David Duke’s friend and partner in crime  Tony Perkins playing the race card!

Anyway, what Perkins and Brown aren’t talking about is that the Mayor Reed’s office denies having been notified about the book.  And that Cochran “forced his own firing” by going on a speaking tour of churches during his suspension where he declared (to great applause, no doubt) that he would continue to proselytize at the workplace upon his return.

And by the way,  Perkins should learn to use Google  Search Images.  The Mayor Kasim Reed that “seems intent on making an example of the African-American.” is “African American” himself.

What a maroooon.
