Two Atlanta pastors backed by the Georgia Baptist Convention are planning an afternoon rally Tuesday in support of Kelvin Cochran, the Atlanta fire chief who was fired over anti-gay comments.

In a self-published book titled Who Told You That You Were Naked, Cochran described gay people as “unclean.”

Garland Hunt of Prison Fellowship and Mike Griffin, public affairs representative for the Georgia Baptist Convention, are organizing the public rally to be held at the Georgia Capitol Rotunda.

“The unjust firing of Chief Kelvin Cochran by Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed has awakened believers from around our state and nation to the reality of Christian discrimination in the workplace,” the pastors say in a flier announcing the hour-long rally. “Now is the time for all Bible-believing Christians to show their support for Chief Cochran's courage and for our First Amendment rights as American citizens!”
