First Amendment Does Not Apply to Preaching Against Homosexuality

There is no first amendment if the government in power can decide when and if it applies.

Lifesite News reported that Atlanta Fire Rescue Chief Kelvin Cochran was “suspended for one month without pay, ordered to undergo sensitivity training, and told by government officials to check his beliefs ‘at the door’ for publishing a book affirming that homosexuality and other forms of sex outside marriage violate the Bible’s teachings.”

Last November Cochran, a former Obama administration appointee and a Baptist deacon, published the book Who Told You You Were Naked?

Being “naked” in the biblical sense of the word, which he means as suffering “condemnation and deprivation” that can only be amended when people are “clothed with Christ.”

He believes that certain behavior are in contradiction to a life blessed by God.

“Sexual acts pursued for purposes other than procreation and marital pleasure in holy matrimony is the sex life of a naked man. When men are unrestrained in their quest for sex outside of God’s purpose they will never be fulfilled,” Cochran wrote. “Naked men refuse to give in, so they pursue sexual fulfillment through multiple partners, with the opposite sex, same sex and sex outside of marriage and many other vile, vulgar and inappropriate ways which defile their body-temple and dishonor God. This is the kind of sex that leaves a man continually empty–the sex life of a naked man.”
