Saluting Brig. Gen. Keith Kerr

Here's my whole-hearted salute to Brig. Gen. Keith Kerr, who came out to the nation tonight at the YouTube Republican debate. Thank you, Sir, and thank you for your integrity and for the clarity of your perspective on what makes us Americans. You get it that it isn't biblical fundamentalism. It's the US Constitution and Bill of Rights. Nothing but, and no ifs, ands, or buts.

So, Republicans: How does a person get to be a Brigadier General as a Queer man if "unit cohesion" is a real issue?

And, if you say that most enlistees are conservative people who aren't used to challenges to their worldview, aren't you also saying that racism and sexism never should have been challenged, in the military or the general populace?

What part of "all men [and women] are created equal" don't you understand, GOP?
