The Patriot Post® · The Air Force Flies Over the Rainbow

By Thomas Gallatin ·

Col. Kristin Goodwin has been nominated to become the next commandant of the U.S. Air Force Academy. She was included on a DoD list of officers slated for rank advancements and appointments. Should Goodwin’s nomination be confirmed, she would be one of the most high profile homosexual military appointments since Barack Obama repealed the military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy. She was in the Obama nomination pipeline since late last year, and she is not likely to face much resistance in Congress.

Goodwin’s appointment is troubling to many, including former Navy Chaplain Gordon James Klingenschmitt. He is concerned over the impact her appointment will have upon religious liberty at the Air Force Academy — a legitimate concern after the AFA’s “So Help Me God” episode.

While the announcement of Goodwin’s nomination in an Academy article makes no mention of her gender issues, this may be an attempt to fly her under the radar in order to secure Senate approval later this year. In all probability, Goodwin was chosen by Obama lackeys in the Pentagon based primarily upon the fact that she is openly homosexual, including being “married to a wife.” In other words, it’s possible she was promoted to this position not despite her sexual orientation but because of it. This is all part of a continuing effort by the Left to fundamentally transform society and culture, and Obama’s effort to destroy military morale through social engineering.
