“This is about judgment,” Mayor Reed said during a Tuesday press conference. “This is not about religious freedom. This is not about free speech. Judgment is the basis of the problem.” [Source]
“I profoundly disagree with and am deeply disturbed by the sentiments expressed in the paperback regarding the LGBT community,” the mayor wrote. “I will not tolerate discrimination of any kind within my administration.”
What Mayor Reed is saying is that he won't tolerate Christianity within his administration.
I simply spoke to sex being created by God for pro-creation and He intended it to be between a man and a woman in holy matrimony – and that any other sex outside of that is sin.
That's Kelvin Cochran's Christian view, and it is the proper position on the matter for a Christian. It is completely consistent with the religion of Christianity, as established by Jesus Christ. If that Christian position is not going to be allowed within government in the US, then the Free Exercise Clause of the Constitution will either be removed or illegally ignored.
What the Mayor is doing is creating a reverse religious-test for public positions. The test is this:
Are you a member of the Christian religion whereby you believe that 1) sex was created by God for pro-creation 2) God intends sex to be solely between a man and a woman in holy matrimony and 3) that any sex outside of that matrimony is sin?
Anyone answering yes, anyone who is a Christian, will automatically be denied a public position under Mayor Reed's administration. That's clear, unequivocal religious discrimination for the benefit of a small group of people who are definitely not expressly a protected class under the US Constitution (while Christians are). Sexual orientation is not even mentioned in the US Constitution. Religion is.
Even under a loose "penumbra" interpretation, sexual orientation is not protected under the US Constitution. Those US so-called justices who are holding otherwise are stretching both the letter and spirit of the US Constitution to the point of: rendering the document entirely void, useless; continuing to make the nation wholly lawless, rebellious against all sanity and morality; bringing in chaos, confusion, anarchy, and fascism (a divided nation that, mark my words, will not stand as such).
There is only one reason that this is happening. Society is quickly degrading. Those who not long ago asked only to be tolerated and who swore that they would never seek to persecute and oppress Christians clearly lied.
What has happened to Kelvin Cochran is plainly homosexual fascism. No doubt, there are many secretly wishing Kelvin Cochran could be physically crucified to death for his pure beliefs about human sexuality and sexual morality.
The US has been on the slippery slope for many, many decades now. If it continues, the result will be a great deal of self-inflicted pain and suffering (more than any before ever experienced in this country, and that's saying a great deal because I include slavery and the Civil War and all other aspects of colonial and US history).
People are talking more and more about the "Clash of Civilizations": Those who profess Islam who are slaughtering the innocent (killing even little children who refuse to renounce Jesus), enslaving people, selling even married women into sexual slavery, raping female captives with impunity (which was sanctioned by Mohammed), etc., versus "Western values."
Well, we don't need to look beyond our borders here in the US for a clash of values that will turn out to be just as ugly if things continue down the homosexualist path they are on.
