This U.S. Supreme Court Ruling Could Create More Stories Like Chief Cochran’s

Five years have passed since former Atlanta Fire Chief Kelvin Cochran’s distinguished 30-year career as a firefighter came to an abrupt halt.

In 2015, the City of Atlanta placed Chief Cochran on a 30-day suspension without pay, ordered him to complete “sensitivity training,” and launched an investigation into his conduct. Ultimately, he was fired.

Chief Cochran had led the City of Atlanta to attain a greater level of fire and rescue preparedness than ever before. And the investigation into his conduct found that he had done nothing wrong.

So what brought about such severe action from the city?

That year, in his spare time outside of work, Chief Cochran wrote and published a men’s devotional book for his men’s group. In that book, Chief Cochran briefly mentions that he holds a biblical view of marriage and sexuality. That’s it.

But the City did not approve of that marriage view.

Thankfully, after Alliance Defending Freedom filed a lawsuit against the City on his behalf, Chief Cochran got the justice he deserved. The City of Atlanta agreed to pay $1.2 million in a settlement, vindicating Chief Cochran’s First Amendment rights.

This was an important win for all people of faith who want the freedom to live and work consistently with their beliefs without fear of government punishment.

But an upcoming U.S. Supreme Court ruling could open the door for government discrimination against people of faith—creating many more stories like Chief Cochran’s. More>>

California Lawmakers Consider Bill To Prohibit Stores From Organizing Children’s Products By Gender

The progressive left’s ridiculous push to create a “gender-fluid” dystopia continues as lawmakers in California seek to prohibit stores that sell children’s toys and clothing from separating these products by gender.

Under the proposed law which would go into effect in 2023, California department stores that sell children’s products would be committing an illegal act by organizing these products by gender. Assembly Bill 2826, introduced by Assemblyman Evan Low, D-Campbell, would apply only to retail department stores with 500 or more employees. Should any of the targeted department stores fail to comply with this absurd law they could be punished with a fine of $1,000. More>>
