Gerald Moreno and his pathological denial
Posted by robertpriddy on October 5, 2009
After virtually ignoring the vast majority of the constant attacks on a wide range of web outlets by Moreno for some years as below contempt, the sheer volume and nastiness decided me (in April 2009) to expose at some length for the unwitting public some of the most obvious untruths he spreads, and to summarise his agenda and methods as they are liberally demonstrated in his mass of web pages, blogs and many other postings. The public may then examine his output and decide just how accurate and truthful my descriptions are.
However, a full point by point rebuttal of all of his countless footling comments, elaborate ruses and paranoid petty criticisms would take a year of work, which is out of the question since it would divert attention from the important issues dissidents have raised, namely the deceptions of Sathya Sai Baba, his organization and many of those associated with him, not excluding the crimes of sexual abuse and numerous murders.
To make a study of extreme psychological denial one could hardly do better than read Moreno’s massive pseudo-documentation of why he believes Sathya Sai Baba is NOT a sexual abuser (after having believed he was for years) plus his denial in the face of a published affidavit (by Timothy Conway PH.D.) and overwhelming supporting evidence – of the authenticity of the infamous Hislop letters on sex abuse – comparing all this with the massive evidence to the contrary, plus the fact of total legal protection of the guru by successive Indian governments whose PM and Presidents were and are his worshippers.(see pdf file from UK Government Cabinet Office)
How ‘popular’ is Moreno among Sai followers? Moreno’s impact is clearly very limited, even on Sai devotees The percentage of Sai devotees who have supported Moreno in public must be well under 0.001 %, even if one believes that there are only about 5 million followers of some kind or another. If there were, as often claimed by official Sai sites, 60 million or even 300 million (as the Swedish Sai Organization firmly states “The organization has about 300 million devotees”, as usual without a figment of evidence (see http://www.sathyasai-se.org/org.htm). Further, Moreno’s efforts have evidently not converted one single person who has left or rejected Sathya Sai Baba. Just two critics who have stood forth have been mailed by well over a thousand who have left since 2000. (He has alienated some of his supporters (see Alan M. Kazlev here).
Since his various attack blogs on wordpress and blogspot had all too few visitors, Moreno registered an anonymous blog at http://sathyasaibaba.wordpress.com/ taking no less a pseudonym than ‘sathyasaibaba’ (and keeping his ownership anonymous on the blog). All the entries are registered as by ‘sathyasaibaba’ and he freely posts materials from other Sai Baba propaganda websites so to attract as many Sai Baba devotees as possible. His attacks on critics of Sai Baba are also posted there regularly – and have pride of place in his front page links – the purpose of his blog is no doubt to promote his libels and web-stalking activities. The general public who know little or nothing about the guru will easily believe that Sathya Sai Baba himself may be writing all this praise of himself (there are many genuine precedents). With the title “Sathya Sai Baba – Life, Love & Spirituality” where he shamefacedly flouts all the guru’s injunctions about not criticising others but looking to one’s own faults instead, speaking softly and with respect and so on. His blog has become the main face of the Sathya Sai Baba movement in blogging, unchallenged by the Sathya Sai Organization or other Sai Baba appointed officials, which further demonstrates what an aggressive cult it has become. Nonetheless it attracts only a disappearingly small fraction of the claimed hundreds of millions of Sai Baba followers! Moreno’s heartless contrived attacks on alleging sex abuse victims are a demonstration of how much ‘love in action’ there is in this movement, for no current devotee has ever uttered a word of criticism of this obnoxious pseudo-devotee Moreno.
