More personal attacks by Gerald Joe Moreno

Posted by robertpriddy on April 17, 2009

Gerald Joe Moreno shows increasingly fanatical zeal and reckless puerility in his efforts to defend Sathya Sai Baba by attacking me as a “dirty old man” as having “a fairy-tale mentality (which appears to be the onslaught of senile dementia” etc.) and in many other transparently-fabricated ways. Who will ever believe him? The “fairy-tale mentality” all belongs to Sathya Sai Baba and is promoted on his blogs by Joe Moreno. He who even explicitly long believed Sai Baba  to be a sexual abuser, yet defended him to the extreme! (see documentation below). He has got the wrong person entirely – for example,  it is not me but Sathya Sai Baba who has openly and credibly been accused of sexual abuse by 30 different young men around the world, and it is Sai Baba who was exposed as engaging in oral male sex on TV documentaries as Sai Baba has (and he is obviously afraid to sue the BBC or Danish TV). Indeed,  I am none of the vile things Moreno wants to believe I am.

He always accuses me of the very faults which he has exercised himself to a maximum degree before I ever responded, such as “internet propaganda, libels and complete disinformation.”

Exactly what happened to Moreno in the private interview? The reason for my interest is not prurience but entirely as an investigator and exposer of many described crimes by Sathya Sai Baba. Joe Moreno makes a big deal about not having stated that oil was “massaged” onto his lower stomach (as I claim), saying only that it was “applied”. How then? With a spatula or a sponge? No. It was from Sai Baba’s hand, he has made that clear enough. So was it not rubbed on? (ie. = massaged in?). That way is widely reported by those describing these oil molestations. Joe is VERY cagey indeed about HOW it was applied and exactly how low down, wanting at any cost to escape any idea that he was being ‘groomed’ to see if he would rise to the approach. He says this occurs between the navel and the pubic area… but plenty of others have explained that it includes the genitals. I am not saying that Joe experienced that, but I think Sai baba did take his pants down (he does, according to reports) or told him to do in words or gestures (as other who received his attentions  have described). Or did Sai Baba put his hand inside his pants to reach the lower stomach? Or what? Let Moreno explain himself. Too embarrassing to admit, perhaps, what actually was the case?

That is was illegal sexual molestation, according to professional experts in such matters and according to the law in most countries, including in India, is an objective fact, however pleasurable [yet also inexplicable] Joe Moreno claims it to have been… If so harmless or enriching (?), why did he leave Sathya Sai Baba and not visit him for more of the same?Why does he claim not to be a devotee or follower… yet to defend him to the last ditch?

Slander by Dr. G. Venkataraman & Joe Moreno

Posted by robertpriddy on April 17, 2009

Among the many intentional untruths that has been spun and spread about Barry Pittard and myself is the claim that we somehow are behind the entire exposè of Sathya Sai Baba. This may seem so to those who only glance at the mass of expose evidence. Apart from early whistle blowers like Tal Brooke and others who received little or no publicity, the sexual abuse allegations were brought into the public sphere by David and Faye Bailey – very close to Sathya Sai Baba before they were overwhelmed by evidence and set about investigating and writing about it all. As soon as this appeared on the Internet, this caused many to write accounts, including numerous sexual abuse descriptions which were highly credible in detail and background. I refused to look at any of them until other matters had increasingly caused me serious doubts about Sai Baba since 1998 V.K. Narasimhan told me in secret about the 1993 murders and blackmail of the police by Sai Baba’s brother. This  I kept to myself until well after V.K. N. died in 2000 and was safe from any retribution.  I first posted an article about Sai Baba’s alleged sex abuses in October 2001! There was already a mass of information and debate on this on the www.

Dr. G. Venkarataman – head of Radio Sai and member of Sai Baba’s ruling Prashanthi Council – has lied about me on his misnamed “heart-to-heart” website, where he wrote “Robert Priddy who was one of those who started much of this slander claimed that two Vice Chancellors of Universities in Australia supported the allegations.” This is so far the only claim published against my name by any central Sai official. The distinct activity in the exposure of Sathya Sai Baba’s sexual abuses began already from about April 1999  with many testimonies and documented facts about Sathya Sai Baba’s alleged sex abuses, fraud, deceptions – I did not start any of that. The two Vice-Chancellors were contacted before my time by Glen Meloy and Barry Pittard, I have only referred their contacts with them. Since then I have spoken out on many issues known to me (not least through Sai Baba’s close servitor, V.K. Narasimhan – also my close friend and confidante).

Subsequently I was contacted by numerous students describing the sexual abuses they have had – and/or their friends – at the hands by Sathya Sai Baba. This they did in strict confidence (because I can be trusted by them – while Venkataraman most certainly cannot, since he condones the infamous murders and disclaims all the reported abuses and more…).  I am not spreading “slander” but documented facts, recorded experiences and my opinions about them. But now one sees that Venkataraman does about me. I provide sound information! Apropos, Moreno promotes and defends Venkataraman on the Internet, and also posts some of Venkataraman’s writings on his blogsite “Sathya Sai Baba  – Love, Light & Spirituality”. Since G. Venkataraman does not take any issue with this at all, it amounts to a collusive partnership.

Likewise, Barry Pittard’s disaffection was not introduced to the network of ex-followers until shortly after October 1999, having read the article of the former head of the Sathya Sai Organization, Terry Gallagher. Gallagher had scrupulously investigated various allegations at first hand and also confronted Sathya Sai Baba himself. For well over a year after this time Barry Pittard activities were largely separate to my own, and I did not have contact with him until yet later – and then 0nly months later again did I have my first contact with Glen Meloy.  We did not coordinate any work even then – I did not involve myself in any joint project until later when wide participation was invited across former devotee networks.

Among the many instances where Moreno extracts some detail from critical writings to interpret and spin it in the worst possible light, never pausing to consider alternate, common sense explanations, is his frenetic barrage of attacks concerning affidavits stating sexual abuse. He capitalised extensively on the error made by some writers including Pittard in repeating Hari Sampath’s claim (supported by his group of helpers) that he had gathered over a hundred affidavits. In fact the genuine mistake was that these were signed accounts of prime witnesses about sexual abuses but also about related matters, only some of which were formal legal affidavits.
