A rookie police officer for Port Wentworth, Georgia, Police Department says he turned in his gun and badge rather than turning his back on God's truth.
Officer Jacob Kersey angered his bosses because he shared his biblical views about marriage and sexuality on his own time and on his personal Facebook page.
On January 2, Jacob shared, "God created marriage. Marriage refers to Christ and the church. That is why there's no such thing as a homosexual marriage."
That kind of comment can easily stir up debate and anger on Facebook any day of the week but Jacob's comment caused an overnight panic in the police department. In the little town of 10,900 people, the 19-year-old was placed on leave January 4 after the department said it received an anonymous complaint about his comment.
