An Air Force enlisted man who was quickly discharged after he began questioning Obama’s eligibility to be president has said he would like to go around the country conducting revival meetings in churches regarding America’s moral decay.
SSgt Daryn Moran, an ophthalmology technician with the 86th Airlift Wing at Ramstein Air Force Base in Germany, said the series of events that led to his discharge first began after Congress repealed the Revolutionary War ban on homosexuals serving in the military.
Moran was a career veteran with over 13 years of service including four years in the Marine Corps.
Moran said he began to get frustrated when his superiors began to implement training telling preparing soldiers to openly welcome homosexuals into the ranks. Moran said military leaders kept the issue at the forefront of all training. “The topic was in front of our face all of the time. When it wasn’t there it was kind of out of sight, out of mind. But they kept putting it up there saying we needed to accept the ‘gay’ lifestyle.” Moran expressed sentiments similar to the majority of service members who are opposed to lifting the ban. “General George Washington didn’t accept it, so why should we?”
Moran became concerned with how serving in an openly homosexual culture would conflict with his biblically based beliefs. While conducting research on the issue he came across web sites that showed questions continue to remain regarding Obama’s eligibility to be president. Moran said he also began to be concerned over the military’s deferential treatment towards Muslims.
The Defense Department issued a memo instructing service members in handling the Koran. The memo says soldiers are to wear gloves when handling the Koran and to primarily use the right hand while handling it. Soldiers have also been told to take special care while conducting searches of rooms where the Koran might be present. Soldiers have not received similar instructions for handling the Bible, which Christians consider to be just as sacred as the Koran.
“I feel like I’m supporting the flag of whatever those Islamic countries are and the rainbow flag, and not the red, white, and blue.” Moran said.
Moran’s research into Obama’s eligibility prompted him to refuse to obey orders until the question was addressed. Following his decision, Moran was quickly discharged in an extremely short amount of time.
Moran said after returning from leave he was involved in a discussion involving the eligibility issue with civilians who worked with his unit. The following day he was removed from the clinic where he worked.
By the end of the week he received a letter of counseling stating that he could become violent. Moran said that was ridiculous saying that at no time did he raise his voice or show anger in the conversations regarding homosexuals, Muslims or Obama’s eligibility. “They were just normal conversations like people do at work.”
“I worked with a Muslim doctor in the clinic and the two of us never had any problems.” Moran went on to say the Air Force then told him they were going to let him out with a medical discharge. “They basically put me out to pasture.”
While on leave, he advised his superiors that he would not follow orders until Obama had proved his eligibility. “I believe those reports that say the birth certificate the President presented in April is a forgery. Obama is an enemy of this country.”
Moran posted his decision not to follow orders online saying, “I’ve identified why I will not follow orders in the military anymore. Should B. Obama provide an original birth certificate from Hawaii that professionals prove valid, it would be nice to know he was born in our country, instead of still having no rational reason to believe he was. He cannot change the fact that his dad was never an American citizen, and I won’t be addressing the natural born citizen clause at this moment, except to say, of course, I believe, as an American, that the founders meant two citizen parents and that our history of court rulings etc. fully validate this.”
Moran continued,”The crux now lies in what will B. Obama do. If B. Obama learns not to lie, and indeed tells the truth, he deserves credit for his change of heart. My personal primary concern is to be as solid as a rock in my battle against his known lying and forgery, for this I will die. However, all other issues and circumstances can be worked out and there is no need for such rock solid standing.”
Following his statement, the Air Force issued a statement saying he was not AWOL but was “currently outprocessing for discharge from the Air Force, which was previously approved by his commander on August 4th.”
Moran said the reason for the discrepancy in his status was that after he posted online that he was AWOL, he received a phone call from the Air Force advising him they had placed him on leave.
Moran received a phone call on Aug. 17 asking him to come back to the base because they had the discharge orders ready. Moran said he went in around 11:00 a.m. and drove around with an escort to three or four stops including dental, and obtained a new id card. The Air Force flew Moran and his family out of Germany the following morning.
Moran says his discharge proves the military is afraid to tackle the eligibility issue. “Instead of arresting and court martialing me when I called for the arrest of the President, they simply discharged me saying I couldn’t get along with anybody.”
Moran’s case is similar to that of Greeley resident, Lt. Col. Terry Lakin. Following a decision by Lakin to not follow orders until Obama proved his eligibility, the Army subsequently court martialed him. Following Lakin’s conviction, he was sentenced to six months in prison at Ft. Leavenworth.
Moran told the Gazette that, now that he is out of the service, he wants to go around to churches and conduct revival meetings. “I realize we are in a spiritual battle. While it is important for Christians to win souls to Christ, we also need to fight against the corruption in our government and society.”
“The attempt to allow transgenders in the military is a complete degradation of our society and our morals.” Moran said he believed Christians were to blame for not taking a stronger stand for biblical principles.
“I point the finger at us Christians; I have been out of church and politics for many years because things were going well in my life and I didn’t think I needed God. Anybody who knows the Lord needs to wake up and do what’s right and try to fix these problems. The lost person is not responsible for destroying this country, as they are just doing what comes naturally.”
In April, following widespread pressure, President Obama released a supposed copy of his long form birth certificate. Prior to its release, the state of Hawaii had declared multiple times they could not release copies of a person’s long form birth certificates to anybody, including the President. Hawaiian officials said that even if the President travelled in person to Hawaii he would be permitted to view his birth certificate but would not be allowed to copy it.
Since the certificate’s release, multiple people have claimed the document is a forgery. The certificate released by the White House does not match the description given by officials. Hawaii Department of Health Director, Dr. Chiyome Fukino, said she had personally inspected the document and it was half-typewritten and half-handwritten. The document released by the White House does not show any handwriting, but is entirely typed. This has caused some to ask how it can be a true copy of the document Fukino said she saw.
