RedState Gathering: Fire Chief Kelvin Cochran. #rsg15

This speech here may be of particular interest to RedState readers, despite the fact that the person who made it is not a candidate. For those who don’t remember the story, this is classic You Will Be Made To Care territory: as Leon put it in that link, in Atlanta they’ve made “opposition to same sex marriage a fireable offense.” Atlanta Fire Chief Kelvin Cochran expressed an opinion on homosexuality that is perfectly consistent with mainstream Christianity; he did so on his own time and in a private capacity; and they fired him for it. And it wasn’t right, what they did. Check out his speech.
