Atlanta Fire Chief Kelvin Cochran’s decision to publish a book outlining his views on homosexuality has landed him in hot water with the city’s mayor.

According to the Georgia Voice, Mayor Kasim Reed suspended Cochran for one month without pay over his book, “Who told you that you were naked?”

Apparently Cochran neglected to tell Reed he would be publishing the book, which calls homosexuality a “sexual perversion.”
