BGen Kristin Goodwin Public Statement on Sexuality
Contrary to the misrepresentations of a few critics, the previous article that mentioned Col Kristin Goodwin simply asked a rhetorical question. It was also an explicitly academic question — given that, as it plainly said, any answer would ultimately be irrelevant.
Most people understood the greater (and explicitly stated) philosophical, academic, and moral points of the article that, as it plainly said, spoke to general cultural and social norms — save for some who seemed to have read it with predisposed prejudices about the Christian faith.
That said, US Air Force BGen(S) Kristin Goodwin has apparently “authorized” a statement of sorts regarding her sexuality. The statement came through Michael “Mikey” Weinstein’s Military Religious Freedom Foundation, not through the Air Force:
MRFF is authorized to advise you that…Brig Gen (Sel) Goodwin…did not become aware of her sexual orientation until well after DADT went into effect.
More interesting is the fact the statement appears to have come about due to a relationship with an MRFF board member:
One of [MRFF’s] board members, Edie Disler, LtCol, USAF (ret), has been in personal contact with Brig Gen (Sel) Goodwin…
Disler — herself a homosexual activist and former USAFA instructor who was sanctioned for her conduct in class — has a colorful history with USAFA and Mikey Weinstein.
The apparent association of the incoming USAFA Commandant of Cadets with Mikey Weinstein could portend a potential end to the state of “war” between Weinstein and USAFA (a war declared unilaterally by Weinstein, that is, when he lost access to USAFA leadership). Could be interesting.
And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.
