Atlanta Kasim Reed will not back down from 'religious liberty' controversy
I have to give MAJOR PROPS to Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed. He is catching a huge amount of flack for his dismissal of former city fire chief Kelvin Cochran.
While Cochran's supporters claim that this is an issue of religious persecution, Reed has contended that this is an issue of bad judgement and behavior by Cochran.
And he is not back down. In the following interview with MSNBC's Tamron Hall, Mayor Reed makes his points eloquently but forcefully. In doing so, he is a model for us all when we are called anti-Christian bigots because we believe in fairness and respect for all:

Does Kelvin Cochran's definition of religious liberty justify his dismissal? Probably so
