Moreno and sexual abuse, denial and subterfuge
Posted by robertpriddy on April 12, 2009
Gerald Joe Moreno began his full-time activities in defending the Sathya Sai Organization and Sathya Sai Baba around autumn 2004, starting by trying to sabotage the International Sai Petition – which now has over 1,300 signatories including a large number of former followers and office-bearers). This he could do only during it’s first year or so before it was protected against such spamming by being moved to its present location and subjected to many cross-checks. As usual, Moreno made massive assumptions – mostly entirely false – about the nature of the petition, calling it bogus. His case rested mainly on his having been able to make some false submissions to the petition before it was protected properly from such spamming (in its new location) – including a bogus entry he boasts about having made under the bogus name Joe Apodaco or the like. [Note that Joe Moreno gave no documentary proof he made that entry. However, it was removed just in case.] That Moreno tried so hard to vandalise the petition with intent to sabotage it shows he is a trickster and flouts all decent civil conventions. He has been unable to continue this since i took over the petition management.
NOTE I have removed a short paragraph from here as it was incorrect (I should not wish for Moreno to be falsely accused of even a minor matter). Joe Moreno was actually abused by Sathya Sai Baba, though he denies that the lowering of his pants and massaging with oil on his “lower stomach” was what the law (even in India) defines it as – sexual molestation when not performed with consent by a doctor of medicine. (See Basava Premanand’s discussion with Moreno on this)
Religious sex abuse is rife: This “anointing of genitals”is a known form of ‘grooming’ for potential sex partners. See the newspaper cutting:
Joe Moreno attacks Alaya Rahm for trying to sue Sathya Sai Baba and/or his Organization for money – actually, that is, for compensation and damages. Perfectly legitimate, as the above cutting shows. It has been done by countless religious sex abuse victims with much success, and very rightly so. If Sathya Sai Baba were to be sued successfully in India (that is, if his governmental and Supreme Court protection were to cease) he would owe countless millions of US dollars, more even than the ISCKON Hare Krishna people were (bankrupted in the USA).
For years Moreno actually believed that Sathya Sai Baba was a sexual abuser (see scan below)! Later Moreno went into total denial of this at the first opportunity (the Alaya Rahm lawsuit’s withdrawal), for it had become a totally untenable and embarrassing position for Moreno when compared with his praise of Sathya Sai Baba and huge struggle to defend him against most of the allegations. This despite massive documentation, including numerous proofs of deception from Sai Baba’s own published words.
1) Alaya Rahm testimony about Sathya Sai Baba’s sexual abuses as on documentary film -which he of course has never retracted
2) Major exposure of the Sathya Sai Society of US and Sai Organisation deceits about a US lawsuit by Alaya Rahm
3) Joe Moreno’ on his own oiling by Sathya Sai Baba (scan from his website)
4) Gerald Joe Moreno’s admission of belief in sexual molestation by Sathya Sai Baba
