Sathya Sai Baba Trust “internal battles”

Posted by robertpriddy on April 30, 2011

NDTV report on the goings-on at Puttaparthi in the wake of Sathya Sai Baba’s funeral. The disingenuity of Sai ashram officials comes out clearly, as does the battle for control of all the huge interests involved. We also see from NDTV that even the foot-worshipping devotees, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has got involved with the Trust, along with Sonia Gandhi. Despite the massive media propaganda in India, this will almost inevitable eventually play out on the world stage to the discredit of all involved, if only in a limited way at present. Further, there are so many sexually abused former followers and students in contact with those of us who are defending them who will eventually come to terms with it and will emerge in future, as they did with the Roman Catholic Church. It takes time, of course, and the climate in India is dangerous for them still… remembering the four ex-students who were executed by the Puttaparthi police while Sathya Sai Baba stood by and conferred with them  through his younger brother, Janakiramiah.

While the internal battle continues, it comes as a shocker for many who noticed that Baba’s ardent devotee, who has always been beside the godman even till the guru breathed his last, was not present during the last rites ceremony. “The last rites were supposed to be conducted only by family members,” argues an ashram official. But when questioned further on why Sathyajit was not present at the ceremony, the official denied his absence and walked away. Many speculate that Baba’s family objected to Sathyajit’s as heir, and because of this long existing cold war, he gave the event a miss. Others however, simply couldn’t believe that he was nowhere to be seen throughout the ceremony. Another ashram official, overseeing the VVIP section believes that he was somewhere around and was trying to maintain a low profile as instructed by the state government. While both arguments hold strong ground, shutterbugs couldn’t even get a glimpse of the man. Meanwhile ashram officials were as surprised as the media, about whether it indeed was a blink and miss scenario with Sathyajit as was being portrayed, or whether he was actually absent during the entire event.

CHOSEN BY BABA The rumour about Sathyajit taking over caught fresh fire when trustee and former Chief Justice of India P N Bhagwati indicated that he would support Sathyajit in the internal power battle.
Adds the source, “Some of the trustees like Bhagwati support Sathyajit because Baba appreciated the selfless devotion, with which his ardent devotee served him. In fact, in one of his discourses last year, Baba indicated that Sathyajit should inherit his legacy.”
The state government has washed its hands of the issue and left the decision on the trust members.
The trustees held a 15-minute closed door meeting with the PM and Sonia Gandhi who had come down to Puttaparthi to pay their last respects on Tuesday. While questions about why Sathyajit hasn’t spoken out against the allegations made against him reverberate in the crowded town, it remains to be seen if Puttaparthi’s famous ashram will truly get a new spiritual successor in the next few days.

The attempt is amateurish and is easily averted, as the appearance of this posting proves. The most frequent attacker, web-stalker and character assassination – a most fanatical defender of Sathya Sai Baba and all and everything related to him – Gerald Moreno is the main a suspect, since Google links I open redirect to his mud-slinging site against me.

Lewis Kreydick and Gerald Joe Moreno – disinformation in the Rahm court case

Posted by robertpriddy on April 28, 2011

An Orange County, California, lawsuit concerning alleged sexual abuses by Sathya Sai Baba had to be self-dismissed for technical reasons by Alaya Rahm. It transpired that there was no accountable registered organization in the USA to indict and an indictment of Sathya Sai Baba was disallowed by the judge because he is in India. When the matter was cleared, Dr. Michael Goldstein – International Chairman of the Sathya Sai organization – issued a secret circular directing all national Sathya Sai Organizations to ensure they were registered and legally accountable (though this has not yet been adequately done). See here http://www.saibaba-x.org.uk/10/SaiOrg-internal_e-mail.html#foundation

Stymied Alaya Rahm USA court case

The Sathya Sai Society of the USA – a charitable fund – had as its front a bookshop hosting a charitable trust, which did not represent the organization or its officials. Alaya Rahm’s attempt to get a legal decision had to be self-dismissed without any hope of it coming to judgement. (See http://www.exbaba.com/articles/alayarahm.htm)


Sathya Sai Baba’s key internet defender
of Sai Baba and his organization etc., Gerald Joe Moreno tendentiously distorts the facts of the lawsuit in every possible way- as he does in his attacks on every one of the scores of young men who have alleged sexual abuse by Sai Baba. Evidently in deep denial himself after a long period of confusion after being ‘oiled on the lower stomach’ in private himself and his former  belief that Sai Baba was a sexual abuser, Moreno tried his utmost in every possible forum (such as Wikipedia) to cast doubt on the result of the Rahm court case. His main attack was to publicise the testimony of Lewis Kreydick, a US devotee who claimed to have been a close confidante of Alaya Rahm during the period he was allegedly sexually abused by Sai Baba. The untruthful deposition by the devotee of Sai Baba, Lewis Kreydick had no effect whatsoever on the decision of Alaya Rahm to withdraw his case, and it was never actually heard in court – it was merely a delivered deposition (also unavailable from the Clerk of Court to other than the parties involved!).  The withdrawal of Alaya Rahm’s case was purely because his attorney could not find any person or accountable body to answer to the Alaya Rahm’s suit. He fully maintains these claims. There is nothing proved against them. So Alaya Rahm’s case was never actually put to the legal test. For reasons former devotee lawyers in the USA and elsewhere are having trouble in understanding, Rahm’s attorney embarked on the case only to discover that there was no legally incorporated entity to sue. Rahm could not sue Sathya Sai Baba in India mainly because Sai Baba has long been protected from all court petitions by the High Chief Justice P.N. Bhagwati – his foot-kissing devotee of decades – and then PM Narasimha Rao and his Home Minister S.B. Chavan.

Kreydick’s main point was that Alaya never mentioned the abuses to him. Yet, in the television documentaries, Alaya stated that he believed, at the time of the abuses, that if he spoke about them his family would reject him.  Lewis Kreydick’s deposition is that of a blindly subjective devotee who attempted to slur Alaya Rahm. Kreydick claimed that he was a close friend and advisor to Alaya and made constant speculations about Alaya’s state of mind (repeatedly objected to by Rahm’s attorney), claiming he could not have been abused and unhappy because he was all smiles. The attempt was to sully Alaya’s character (and, disgracefully, that of his mother, too!).  This was heartless. Kreydick’s testimony totally disregarded the situation that Alaya was going through a tremendous inner upheaval while having to put up a brave face. Experts in sexual abuse attest that abusees, in the face of a situation too painful to admit fully into consciousness, can hide the turmoil about a situation beneath smiles. Here was an individual, knowing the terrible consequences in a US court should anyone perjure themselves, striving to tell his story of a very confusing and traumatic sexual abuse by his former guru, whom he had been raised to regard as God.

According to relatives who have contacted the exposé, Lewis Kreydick is a shady character who they say was suspected and indicted for murder of his own parents, but was saved by his lawyers, and who fled to the feet of Sathya Sai Baba for forgiveness.  Moreno even claimed, against all evidence, that the decision by Alaya Rahm somehow vindicated Sathya Sai Baba as not having been a sexual abuser! Alaya Rahm has NEVER withdrawn his allegations. Nor have his supporters, who are many among ex-devotees of Sai Baba in the USA and elsewhere, doubted his claims in the least. No judgement naming Sathya Sai Baba was given, in fact no verdict other than case self-dismissed was given. Gerald Joe Moreno has written extremely extensively on the Internet about this case, and none of it stands up to reasonable scrutiny. He continues with his fanatical and obsessive attempts to discredit, smear and assassinate character to all who have voiced criticism of Sathya Sai Baba, on whatever count. His chief method is ad hominem attack, besides systematically doubting the integrity of every critic (there are hundreds!), refusing without any contrary evidence to accept whatever proofs or testimonies they deliver. He calls nearly all of them liars over and again. The people he attacks were mostly known in the Sathya Sai movement as strongly motivated to do social service and held high all human values.

Moreno’s life has for about 5 years revolved around the work of the critics to the exclusion of anything else, as far as one can see. He certainly suffers from physiological denial syndrome to a high degree… even though he admits to the oiling by Sai Baba in private of his lower stomach (whatever that really implies) caused him to be sexually inhibited for years afterwards, though he claimed to have no idea of the reason for Sai Baba to do it. Many others have testified in public – and many more in private – to the reason… which is grooming to see whether sex is a possibility! Moreno’s reply to the many testimonies and all the supporting evidence is to attack and try to humiliate those many boys and young men who have already been put through such humiliating events by the self-proclaimed God Almighty.

Moreno’s attacks on former devotees in regard to the Hislop letters

Gerald Moreno sustains his futile on-line denials of the authenticity of the Hislop letters and their substance This, even though he was totally rebutted in his web campaign to prove that the Hislop letters were fake by Timothy Conway’s affidavit confirming their existence in scans and the accuracy of transcripts of them. He has attacked Mrs. Payne (Diana Scott) for not replying to his e-mail to her! What brazen insolence… for she no doubt knew from reading his publication of many e-mails he sent and received to testifiers to Sai Baba sex abuse how he uses their replies to twist the facts, to vilify them and call them liars and yet worse. He cast his perennial suspicions on whether Terry Lee Scott was actually sexually abused, as he has done in heartless and insulting attacks on every single person who has testified to sexual abuse– including at least 30 instances by self-identified persons. Moreno points out that the Sai College authorities dismissed Terry Scott “in disgrace” as if this were for some other fact than his having accused Sai Baba of sexual impropriety towards himself and his friends. The supposed ‘disgrace’ was the reaction of Sai Baba’s corrupt henchmen because he even dared to speak up… for it is strictly verboten to make the slightest criticism of the one they all worship as the one God Incarnate on earth.

Sathya Sai Organization double morals

Posted by robertpriddy on March 11, 2011

Dr.Michael Goldstein above (as caught out by the BBC) and his Indian counterpart in cover-up of all facts about murders and sexual abuses, Dr. G. Venkataraman (below) -

The Sathya Sai Organization and other Sai Baba institutions have always been ready to denounce impostors and deceivers (in circulars or in their public journal Sanathana Sarathi). Sathya Sai Baba insists that his followers support truth, decency, speaking softly and sweetly, but his authorities have nothing to say about their biggest and most unethical defender on the Internet, Gerald Moreno. They observe Moreno attacking dissidents and critics of Sai Baba in the most unspiritual and libelous manner without a single word of comment. Were they to dissociate themselves from him in public or denounce his methods even once, they would pull the ground from beneath him, so one cannot but conclude that in the main the leaders have no trouble with what they know to be his unjustified and untruthful representations of former devotees. Thus, their silence amounts to consent and the endorsement of not taking issue with this major proponent of their own agenda.

Knowing what a clandestine and secretive power clique runs the authoritarian International Sathya Sai Organization, with the devious Dr. Michael Goldstein and Dr. G. Venkataraman at its head, they are satisfied to be defended through ad hominem attacks, character assassination attempts and diverse other underhand methods used by their primary defender. The same applies to Sathya Sai Baba himself – for with a few words to the leaders of his organization or in public he could denounce Moreno, who ceaselessly, with ongoing cooperation from both his prominent and rank-and-file members, breaks his directives for spiritual behaviour.

Dr. M. Goldstein stated on the BBC documentary ‘The Secret Swami’ that Sathya Sai Baba had told him not to answer any criticisms, for it would drag them into the gutter. Because Goldstein was bound religiously to follow every hint of this Lord and Master, so one way to hit back at critics was clearly either through minions. This was done through disinformation and false claims by Dr. G. Venkatarman (Head of Radio Sai, and active Member of the Prashanthi Council) who was only to willing to avoid the real issues and distract attention from the many crimes involved. Venkarataman’s mendacious response to the JuST Group’s documented criticisms was a private reaction he claimed – and not made on behalf of the Prashanthi Council itself, not of the Sathya Sai Organization either. What duplicity from Sathya Sai Baba’s official propagator and chief propagandist!

In all this silent support for Moreno, Sathya Sai Baba and his officials faced the dilemma: either to denounce the critics’ claims themselves or denounce the nefarious behaviour of their staunch defender (Moreno) because of the counter-productive effect and its impact on both true devotees and the wider public. Moreno’s shallow and calumnious diatribes and their frequent predominance over other pro-Sai Baba postings on search engine results strongly reinforce the fact that there has been very widespread criticism of Sathya Sai Baba, especially since the massive sexual abuse revelations in 1999 and the exposure of the murders in his bedroom on BBC World TV and the Internet. Meanwhile, not one pro-Sai Baba website dares to make a single link to the extensive Sai Baba critical websites for fear of the facts coming forth to their followers. Sai Baba himself has warned devotees not to view the discussions on the Internet.

Pointed denials of association to mislead the public:

Moreno made a point of denying – at the foot of many of his pages – any association with the Sathya Sai Organization from the time of the first attacks on critics and alleging victims of Sathya Sai Baba’s sexual abuse (which he also actually accepted for some years during his all-round defense of Sai Baba). His activity still undermines the credibility of their claim that Sai Baba is not at the centre of a cult. There is considerable circumstantial evidence of central US Sathya Sai officials collaborating with Moreno behind the scenes, especially in providing him with information about the Alaya Rahm court case before the results were known even to most critics and in providing him with deposition documents which were never made public by the court and have proved unobtainable even by several email requests by a international coordinator, and by (via telephone) a US academic and also a personal visit by another US citizen to the Clerk of Court in Orange County, California. Moreno could not prove that he had obtained the documents from the court, as he asserted, for he could produce no receipt.

Some semi-official Sai websites with a fairly large remit [which are of course also deeply engaged in a propaganda and disinformation campaign – especially saibabaofindia.com] do link to his web pages, helping his Google rankings. The Sathya Sai Organization could stop this easily, but evidently some among them – such as Prashanthi Council leaders Michael Goldstein and G. Venkataraman – are privately interested in seeing critics of Sai Baba maligned as much as possible. Their conscious choice to avoid Moreno in public shows that they nevertheless are aware what a yet more huge liability to them it would be to endorse such a person who defies all the advice of Sathya Sai Baba always to speak softly, criticise oneself instead of others and such rules. The wider world of thinking people can see straight away that Moreno’s whole aggressive character attack strategy and underhand ‘dirty tricks’ are a striking manifestation of a religious personality cult in action, often exceeding the antics of scientology.

Moreno wrote that he had heard many wonderful stories about Sai Baba from someone called ‘Robert’ (at a time when there were few who knew much about SB in the USA). Of those named Robert to whom might apply from that early date there are Robert Baskin, Robert Bozzani, and Robert Bruce – all Sai VIPs and long-standing members of the Sathya Sai Organization. Robert Basin has acted as the lawyer for the Sai Organization. Moreno claimed he had no contact with Baskin, citing the irrelevant fact that Baskin lives in California while he lives in New Mexico, a long way apart. But Baskin has held talks in many places in the Sai organization, and both have been frequently to Sai Baba ashrams, where meetings between US visitors are almost inevitable (in groups etc.) not to mention e-mail, the phone etc.!

There is no publicised official support for Moreno or any mention of him or links to his defamatory web pages by the Sathya Sai Organization or other Sai institutions, indicating that they cannot afford association with such a twister of the truth). More significantly, not a single national or other prominent newspaper or media outlet referred to Gerald Moreno’s massive output. He has railed against journalists (e.g. Vishal Arora) and academic researchers into the Sathya Sai Baba who have failed to mention him or in any way support or reference his materials (such as Tulasi Shrinivas and others). Yet more disappointing for Moreno, no doubt, is that there are no postings on the Internet of any serious kind that support him in any way, except for a few by fanatics and equally dishonest and antagonistic persons (eg. Lisa de Witt being a very active user of bad language and utterly false low-life claims about critics).

Sathya Sai Baba’s wide ‘lunatic fringe’ and Moreno

Posted by robertpriddy on September 13, 2010

Pages showing Gerald Moreno's self-assessed "art" and his lunatic belief in chackras and the kundalini

Gerald Joe Moreno, who believes Sathya Sai Baba is at least on a par with Jesus, also with Swami Premananda (in prison under two life sentences for rape and murder, confirmed after appeal to the Supreme Court of India) – all for Moreno qualifying as being ‘vishvarupa’ or incarnations of the Divine (see his http://vishvsarupa.com site). A person who defends both convicted murderers and sex abusers and government-protected criminals is clearly beyond the fringe of normality.

Moreno is also a believer in the holy power of ‘mandalas’. He has made many images of mandalas
(produced with IT software) and therefore he calls himself a ‘professional artist’, no doubt in desperation to pretend to some qualification, since he has no others. These images represent the imaginary ‘chackras’ or mystical centres which are supposedly opened when the mystical ‘serpent power/ (kundalini) is awakened and rises along an invisible channel in the spine up to the brain. This is a totally non-empirical and speculative mysticism, much loved by would be spiritual and holy persons who accept on faith from their gurus or the vague and fantastic literature that all this have a basis in reality. I have never believed in the kundalini other than as a symbolism for ordering various spiritual dogmas  and a numinous idea, but Moreno is entirely under the spell of this and a vast amount of Hindu superstition and religious trickery that goes along with it. Gerald Moreno tries to create the impression that he knows all about these chackras and the kundalini, but his entire Gerald Moreno quackery - bogus 'healing' by staring at digi-mandalaoutput demonstrates that he has far too many bad qualities to fulfil the supposed requirement for the task as it is described by its mystical proponents.

Of course, Moreno is a firm believer in Divine miracles. This began with him supposedly being visited literally in the flesh by Sathya Sai Baba in his bedroom at night in New Mexico, when Sai Baba was demonstrably in India. (Moreno was paralysed at the time and in great fear – symptoms of ‘narcolepsy’ usually following sleep deprivation whereby dream contents appear as real waking events).

Finally, he denies that Sathya Sai Baba’s oiling of his “lower stomach” in private in the inner interview room was a case of sexual molestation, even though he cannot deny that such an act fulfils all the requirements of sexual abuse under Indian (and most foreign) law, and that it is widely reported as grooming for sexual relations of most unpleasant kinds by over 30 testifiers!

Moreno is also believes that Sathya Sai Baba’s ‘holy nectar’ (amrit) is unearthly and is manifested by Sathya Sai Baba (as he believes all other objects claimed by Sai Baba are, or else he would have refuted any bogus claims surely?). Moreno states he wishes amrit were available on the market as he would buy “gallons”! In fact it is nothing other than tea rose essence (added to sugar water), while devotees largely believe it is a manifested substance – a blessing from God himself which may lead to their escaping rebirth on the wheel of life! He has images of vibuthi allegedly manifesting on pictures of Sathya Sai Baba at Halagappa’s orphanage [i.e. the ‘thief’s temple’], but he never questions whether this is fake… even though it is known that Halagappa has made a fortune from this, causing Sathya Sai Baba to reject him totally as a fraudulent beggar/thief.

This is a tinted glass receptical for rings and bangles etc., no crystal there at all (though Moreno thinks he knows better!).

from Gerald Moreno's page on himself from the 1st version of his web site 'vishvarupa.com'Gerald Moreno stated on his vishvarupa.com page about himself that he is very interested in crystals. That they possess special or mysterious energies is a known fallacy of the New Age lunatic fringe, yet he even tried to implicate me in the same interest (which I have never held) as a symptom of my gullibility!  To do so he falsely identifies as a crystal what is actually a plain glass ring-holder. It was photographed on my mantle piece and printed in my book ‘Source of the Dream’ which he copied (without permission)  and annotated as being a ‘crystal’. This is a typical mindless ‘tit-for-tat’ reaction by Moreno because I have publicised that Sathya Sai Baba has a broad lunatic fringe. After his imagining a crystal on my former shrine, I realised that he is a prime candidate for the lunatic fringe himself.

Another member of this fanatical lunatic fringe is Moreno’s closest side-kick collaborator Lisa de Witt, who claims to have communications from Shirdi Sai Baba, Sathya Sai Baba and Jesus… plus angels. She is in obsessional denial about Sai Baba’s failings’ and expresses herself in a particularly low-minded and verbally polluted way, persecuting all critics of Sathya Sai Baba (calling them ‘persecutors’ of Sai Baba).

Gerald Moreno – in the Sathya Sai Baba lunatic fringe The night visitation by Sathya Sai Baba to a  paralysed and scared Gerald Moreno… and its consequences: a private interview where he was oiled “on the lower stomach” by SB, and since then he has ensure that he has no other future than fanatical defense of the impossible by any means, foul or fouler in attacking all apostates of Sai Baba (and also Muktananda, Ammachi and others) See also  Gerald Moreno – further inducted into the Sathya Sai Baba fold

Sathya Sai Baba’s broad lunatic fringe There are a number of devotees of Sai Baba who claim to have been Mary Magdalene in a previous incarnation. There have also been many such who lived out their adult lives in psychiatric institutions. Among Sai followers there are persons who claim – that they are reincarnations of famous persons from history – or have been told by Sathya Sai Baba that they were Vivekananda, St. Francis of Assissi, Radha, the monkey god Hanuman  and others in past lives. There is also a ‘teeth-clacking’ medium who gets messages from Sai Baba by the involuntary clacking of his teeth!

Sai Baba and the lunatic fringe Self-professed Danish clairvoyant claimed to live on light (no food), meet angels but developed ‘psychic problems’ and was ‘saved’ by Sai Baba!

Lunatic Devotee claims he is Prema Sai For the uninitiated, Prema Sai is the predicted next incarnation of the Sai Baba avatar, but will not appear until after Sathya Sai Baba’s death… so ‘John Ramakrishnan’ is rather premature!

Truly lunatic Sai Baba fringe + video link Stephanie Relfe is another devotee who is a disgrace to the Sai Baba fold – such disturbed people with cognitive derangement are well over-represented among Sathya Sai Baba followers and defenders, compared to the general population.

Deceiving ‘devotee’ makes bogus image of Sai in the Moon In the general desperation to prove that Sai Baba appeared on the moon as he claimed he would, devotees – particularly Indian follower – have created images with his face superimposed on a photo of the moon!

More Sathya Sai Baba Moon Madness An account  by one Ganapati about Sai Baba supposedly  picking up a wood-apple and miraculously transforming it into the moon – a translucent sphere reflecting the sunlight. Such incredibly fanciful beliefs can only be entertained by persons without their feet on the ground and their heads in the clouds.

‘Robert Priddy Not Exposed’ blog

Posted by robertpriddy on July 5, 2010

A blogsite defending  me against the massive harassment of Gerald Joe Moreno has been posted on the Internet – click here. It contains details information about Gerald Moreno’s malicious campaign against me on boards, groups, web pages and blogs, all because I am a critics of the guru he so admires and defends, Sathya Sai Baba. I hardly responded at all to four years of his almost daily attacks on me – all contrived and full of distortions and many proven lies about me and my internet activities. He has never met me but has since 2004 studied in the greatest detail everything he can find out about me, has twisted every bit he can somehow distort to ridiculous lengths and reported it in a way that is not only full of inaccuracies and misquotations. Above all he is enraged that I eventually pointed out the obvious fat from his own on-line account of his private interview with Sathya Sai Baba that he was ‘groomed’ for sex and physically interfered with.. a fact about which he is in massive and – to all appearances pathological – denial.

Here one can see how the front-line defense of the Sathya Sai Organization on the Internet is conducted – i.e. in a way that totally contradicts the entire attitude of any spiritual person or organization and disregarding with contumely all of the valid advice of Sathya Sai Baba about how to behave towards others. It shows the cultist nature of these attackers and the set-up they defend.  Gerald Moreno is a shrinking violet in that he makes hug efforts to remove a single image of him from the Internet. In short, he dare not show his face in good company in case he is recognised (See here and at https://robertpriddy.wordpress.com/2009/04/04/sathyasaibaba-in-the-shadows/)!

Moreno’s re-use of extreme libel by ‘Dr.’ Leo Rebello of Mumbai

Moreno claims that I was threatened with a million dollar lawsuit (by a half-crazed Indian called Rebello) despite Moreno knowing that this is NOT true! As I have informed on several occasions previously, I was never threatened, not even by mail – let alone from any lawyer. Moreno cannot prove his statement with any genuine documentation, and he knows his statement to be false! Proving I am right, Moreno even admitted to Kazlev (see below) that it was angeltowns.com who were threatened. Further, Rebello claims he wrote to a server and threatened them (i.e.not me, which he surely realised was impossible for him to succeed in). Rebello never even forwarded that threat to me, nor did the server at angeltowns.com contact me then. Thereafter, I contacted angeltowns but they would not confirm that they found me to have defamed anyone. Since it was a free (unpaid) website for which I had not paid anything, they chose to remove the material as they had no (financial) reason to defend me fro the threat of a lawsuit against them (even though Rebello could never have achieved anything in any court considering the materials he spammed many people with). I was then naive about those services and should have posted my materials on a dedicated, paid-for website. Moreno knew about these things and took advantage of the fact to try to libel me. However, I decided to let sleeping dogs lie so did not repost the materials then, which I easily can do in full – up-dated and extended exposing him (Rebello) fully, not least with his own words and many bogus claims. and with impunity any time if Rebello causes me the least trouble on-line again.

Gerald Moreno has further tried to defame me by posting a very selective excerpt of Rebello’s filth in a way which he thinks makes me look bad, which suffices to show the kind of person Moreno is backing and how he has an agenda of hate and character assassination! I will post just a brief sample of Rebello’s his 50-plus mails sent to all and sundry for those who have the stomach to view them. Interested can mail me for these items. If there should be any reaction against me on-line from Rebello himself, I shall re-post my entire up-dated web pages for all to see.

Likewise, no critic of Sathya Sai Baba has ever been sued, nor even threatened in any credible legal way (except once by an incompetent Indian posing as a lawyer whose bluff was called immediately by no reply), yet Moreno claims to know better, but he has no documentation of any such thing because none exists. He ignores the facts and post whatever he believes remaining Sai devotees will believe, knowing that in their blind faith they will most likely accept almost anything against critics as being true. Moreno will take any half-truth and turn it into a full lie, and then claim that it is the critics (whether former devotees or reputable media) who are engaged in falsification!

M. Alan Kazlev has defended me against Moreno – a person he originally befriended, but found to be a major liar and libeler. Kazlev wrote:-

“You claim “Robert Priddy is relating more scurrilous fabrications and gutter untruths against me under the guise of anonymity.” But where is the proof of these assertions? You wrote “Priddy’s dirty and filthy websites”. Your uses of such language are imho just more examples of slander (and more shadow projection) on your part.

To cite another example, you posted the slander of Dr. Leo Rebello against Priddy on your website. That is an implicit endorsement of Rebello’s statements and is I understand slanderous by law.

Your allegations about Priddy on porn sites are unverified, and hence defamatory and slanderous. How do we know that someone (I wonder who?) has used his website title in signing up for those sites?” (See here)

[Moreno]
“Regarding Leo Rebello:

Rebello’s slander is his own. Priddy’s defamatory website against Rebello was removed for its defamatory content by AngelTowns.com (are you unaware of this fact?).” (See STATEMENT here)

(Alan Kazlev) “I admit i haven’t followed all these details the way you do. However I did email Robert regarding this and other points of you reply, and he informed me that this is further vicious slander against him, whatever else you claim. There is no independent proof that the Priddy website about Rebello was removed because it was defamatory. If I recall, it contained screen-shots of disgusting documented slanders against Robert by Rebello in his e-mails, with Robert’s comments and analysis of his denials of the existence of AIDS and SARS and Rebello’s claims to greatness and fame. (NOTE Priddy now informs me that the claim that the website was defamatory is wholly unsubstantiated by the web server! No such reason for closure was given Click here for more information)”

NB! I retain a major dossier of fully documented web pages on Dr.Leo Rebello’s public efforts to defame Sai Baba dissidents in most disgusting ways, and I can document his many other statements showing his bogus claims and activities. Any bona fide persons who are interested in this matter can e-mail me or contact me on the comment page (their mails or comment entries will NOT be posted there and strict confidentiality will be observed).

Gerald Moreno’s false claim about porn site postings

Posted by robertpriddy on June 10, 2010

Gerald Moreno has tried to blacken my character in innumerable ways, all without the slightest substance. However, among his dirty tricks is to claim that I posted on a porn site to get my site listed! Of course I never would not ever did post anything on any porno site. Moreno claims to know this… he could not defend it legally, nor dozens of other direct wilful and highly defamatory untruths he has leveled against me.

See quotes from independent M. Alan Kazlev’s site, as follows:-

[Moreno]
Priddy’s material on porn sites:
Seekinsider.com is a pay-per-click search engine. You cannot just link your site on them. You have to pay for it. Priddy payed to have his site listed there under the category: “World Wide Sex Com – World Wide Sex Directory – World Wide Sex” (look at the title on the very top of the page and some of the content on the page).

So what? Anyone can list anyone else’s site on these sort of porn sites. Why would Priddy – a qualified academic – post a link to his public website on a porn site? On the other hand, this seems like just the thing one of his defamers would do in order to try to smear him.

Gerald Moreno has posted nothing of any substance or documented evidence to show that his endless hair-splitting ‘rebuttals’ of all critics’ testimonies and documentation are more than empty words to divert attention from the countless unpleasant facts about Sathya Sai Baba and Moreno’s attempts to defend him.

He denies he was subjected to the sexual molestation – which was clearly  ‘grooming’ for possible sex through invasive oiling “of the lower stomach” and which he has himself described on his website and discussed with Basava Premanand. Moreno has most extraordinarily also – defended Sai Baba while believing him to be a sexual abuser. Since he is so incensed about those who claim this was illegal and abusive, why does he not sue anyone? He also claims against his better knowledge that I have threatened to sue him, which he cannot prove as it is not true. If I should, he threatens to counter sue immediately (using anal images to press home his point!). The fact is, he knows all too well he has no case in any court in the world. I would not waste the time and outlay with such a patently obvious case of a liar and inflamed hate merchant whose tricks are transparent to all but the most indoctrinated and truth-blind devotees of Sathya Sai Baba. After several years of abuse from Moreno, I finally exposed some of his endless untruthfulness and contrived half-truths on the Internet.

Having no way to get at me with anything true or factual, Moreno has even reported that I am accused of sexual relations with Sai Baba, which is the height of absurdity as he certainly knows! I was never alone with Sai Baba as my wife always accompanied me in every single contact we had when I was 50 years old! The same dirty trick was used by the blinded Sai supporter Bon Giovanni on a public website against me, posting an anonymous letter packed with lies about me being a sexual abuser of visiting Sai students, which were easily refuted by me. This is the nature of the response to me and others who have simply referred all the testimonies of sexual abuse by many former young male followers of Sai Baba.

Sai Baba sexual abuse reports etc. on the Sai Petition

Posted by robertpriddy on June 9, 2010

The Public Petition for Official Investigations of Sathya Sai Baba and his Worldwide Organization has been signed by 1470 persons. In addition to the many who have published sexual abuse testimony against Sathya Sai Baba elsewhere on other websites, the reports (below) were made by signers of the petition. The petition was organized by the JuST Group and was spammed and sabotaged at first (by those trying to disrupt and deny freedom of speech to those with major grievances), until a secure new site for the petition was developed. Read the history and see the list of many other prominent signers here
Here is a significant small selection of the signers with their comments on sex abuses:-

Paul Throne, USA — Follower 1988-2000 S.S.Org: Center education coordinator: Have been to see SB 4 times, 1990, 1994, 1995-96 and 1999. Despite many positive experiences, I believe too many credible accounts of abuse now exist to pretend it isn’t real, including a young male friend of mine who told me SB fondled him. More frightening to me than the megalomaniac SB is his organization and its leaders. When the leaders refuse to hear these concerns or allow discussion of these events, it has become a complete mind-control cult.

John Purnell, Australia — Follower 1987-1994 also sexually abused by that fraud. he must be exposed

Michael Smith, USA — . I am a sexual abuse victim advocate: friends of mine have been sexually abused by Baba

Pierre Stahre — Sweden. Follower: 1990-2000  – only  know swedish male friends that was severely molested sexually by Sai Baba for many years.

David Juliano — USA . abused by Sai Baba in 1974

Marcus Martenson, — Sweden . A guy I know was sexual abused by Sai Baba

Juan de Dios Suarez — Venezuela Follower 6 years I know of two Venezuelans who were sexually abused by the False Teacher
[Conozco de dos Venezolanos que fueron abusados Sexualmente por el Falso Maestro]

Kyra Kitts — USA “I found out directly a year or so later from a friend in my local center that he’d been sexually molested by SB in his teens several times” (http://exbaba.com/articles/kyraboy.html)

Rosalia Malagelada de Neves — Venezuela. Follower: 1988 until 2001 Position in S.S.Org: Venezuela Comite I knew the two cases very close of abuse

Sandeep Shanbhag — India January 13. 2008. I have heard from my OWN friend that he was studying in Whitefield and his friend was molested by Sai Baba. it is high time that is man gets investigated and arrested…. [ADMIN NOTE: This student’s details, kept confidential, have been verified]

Anonymous ex-Student — India [ADMIN NOTE: This student’s details, kept confidential, have been verified] January 1. 2008. Follower: birth-not sure when the deception hit me. I am an ex-student who knows that what is alleged is true. From friends who were abused, and from being part of the culture which has denial written all over it. I personally had a “touch and feel” experience by Sai Baba, who massaged my genital area through my clothes with his legs for 10 minutes in a bhajan session in everyone’s presence – I understood later I was being “trialled”. Luckily, I did not “rise” to the occasion, and was deemed “unsuitable”. I chose to be anonymous because I have good friends who I would lose – I am sorry but I am being selfish – for me, the friends matter more than exposing Sai Baba. I will work very hard to ensure no one else is harmed, but in my own quiet way.

Ramesh — USA Student 1992-2000  I am an ex school student who was ‘Molested’ Please bring this mad man to justice!!!! [ADMIN NOTE: This Indian student’s details, kept confidential, have been verified]

Salim Delgado — Argentina February 1. 2005. student. I know the terrible reality behind this horrendous man who has blinded many people thought out the world. I appreciate your action for crying out the truth. Please go ahead, you don’t know how much good you make!!!

Jenni Oliver — Australia I have known members who became seriously disturbed after their involvement

Shyam Manisastry –USA Our family personally know one Indian boy who was sexually by this “Sathya Sai baba” without satyam and that boy’s own parents did not believe him. He ended up confiding the truth to his friend. Pedophiles like baba should be banned and they should face similar legal charges like anyone.

Subramanian Ganesan — USA August 4. 2004.
He tried to murder my childhood friend.

Salim Delgado — Argentina February 1. 2005. student. I know the terrible reality behind this horrendous man who has blinded many people thought out the world. I appreciate your action for crying out the truth. Please go ahead, you don’t know how much good you make!!!

Hari Dev Gautam — India . Ex Sai Baba.  I was Sai Baba Religious Devotee and became a victim very nearly. But I figure out before happening to me.

Alexis Hildebrandt — Germany Follower from birth 1987-2002
I lived in India for nine years and heard many personal accounts- there is no doubt about the truth of the allegations.

Susan Greeley — USA. Never a follower: As a therapist that has spent 15 years treating sexual abuse victims, I am so shocked that my mother is a devotee of this man. This is the first I’ve heard about these issues that have been around for decades. My mother, a woman in her early 60s, went to see Sai Baba about 7 years ago. She came back and set up shrines in her home , but she wouldn’t discuss her trip in any detail. She’s been involved with a group in Atlanta, Georgia. Her personality has really changed in the past 7 years. She appears more paranoid and depressed.

Jenni Oliver — Australia. I have known members who became seriously disturbed after their involvement

Mhairi Fox — United Kingdom I’ve been aware of Sai Baba for the last twenty-three years, and was a follower for some of that time. Back in 2000 I spent three months at the ashram. I had two group interviews but never felt anything truly spiritual in Sai Baba’s presence, only unease. Now I know why. I met many good and true spiritual seekers during my time in India, they were inspiring company and I am worried and furious for them. I lost my closest friend over this whole thing, she was the one who first alerted me to the abuse, cover-ups and dirty tricks perpetrated by Sai Baba and some of his followers. Since then I have continued to read about what’s happening, and I’ve continued to be shocked, saddened and angered. Sai Baba is a sick and dangerous man who should be brought to justice now and locked up before he can do any more damage. The lesson I’ve learned from this whole mess — I have no need of self proclaimed avatars and gurus, God is within. God is everything.

ALL BONA FIDE PETITIONERS SIGNERS HAVE FULL OPPORTUNITY TO REDRESS IF THEY HAVE BEEN MISREPRESENTED

Everyone who signs the petition has always been free to complain to the administration if they feel they have been misrepresented or their entries edited unduly. This can obviously be done by submitting any complaints under ‘Comments’..

1. Deleting bogus signatures is wholly justified. Postings and comments contrary to the petitions’ concisely stated purpose are invalid.
2. Deleting illegal, unduly defamatory abuse or pornographic content is only right and is required by some countries legal systems. All this has been done at times by the administration.
3. Some such alterations were made when a changeover from a former less secure website to the current one was made. Advance vetting of signatures – first introduced exclusively because of Sai spammers and a temporarily disabled function after changeover – was reintroduced.

Only ‘pre-programmed’ devotees would take serious notice of the attempt by the fanatical pro-Sai abuser of all Sai-dissidents – Gerald Moreno – to discredit and sabotage the Public Petition against Sathya Sai Baba’s protection from prosecution. Moreno has himself described how he was oiled “on the lower stomach” in private by Sai Baba. Hence – legally speaking – he was molested sexually.

Guru claims Sai Baba paid $1 million to retrieve pictures

Posted by robertpriddy on May 28, 2010

An Indian guru, Sekarji (Chandrasekhar Balasubramanian) considers Sathya Sai Baba was already a sexual molester and a faker of miracles long ago. Here is an e-mail he sent to exbaba.com.

From Sekharji 06-28-2002 08:43 PM ET (US)

Today, there are so many Extortionists, that SSB is letting most of them go on telling stories without the reward for silence. It seems that the money supply is now getting low. So now, there are a whole lot of exDevotees attacking each Other to achieve the status as being the last One standing for SSB to deal with. There are even Imposters planted to help confuse and frighten the whistleblowers.

I enforce My claim for the previous statements to You in the following way. There is a Swamiji named ‘Kaleshwara’ somewhere near Banglore. He was a young Boy when SSB molested Him. He, however, brought a camera and took pictures of the activites without SSB knowing. Later, He extorted SSB and got $1 million dollars to start His own ashram. Go to Him in Banglore, and privately ask. He is quite open and honest about the whole matter. He may still even show You the pictures as He did to many Others.
Sekharji

It should perhaps be added that I do not in any way endorse this or any other self-professed guru, but however misguided he may be or not, what he tells must be taken into account, no reason why it is not true. In fact, there are many reasons why one can consider it to be fact. A major impostor of the kind Sekharji mentions must surely include the former Sai College teacher  Murali Krishna Yachendra, – a trusted agent for the Sai authorities being also a relation of the Sai-devotee Raja of Venkatagiri. Yachendra’s major attempt via e-mails (see some here) to sabotage and derail the exposé which continued persisted through months of contacts between him and Basava Premanand and Barry Pittard. He altogether failed to deceive them, and they could present full proof of his major deceits, countless outright lies and falsifications of documents. See Major sabotage by Sai college teacher averted, including murder threats against Basava Premanand

The South Indian police were informed and a petition lodged, but the Sai authorities have so much power there that the petition has never so for reached court.  The evidence can be studied on-line to some extent, though the entire catalogue is only available so far in a book published in India by Basava Premanand entitled ‘Sabotage by Murali Krishna Yachendra’  (available for US$10.- with airmail fee included – from 11/7 Chettipalayam Road, Podnadur – 641 023. Tamilnadu, India)

Yachendra is endorsed by the Sai-defender and character assassinator Gerald Moreno of Las Cruces, New Mexico, and defended him throughout in the face of the extremely damaging evidence. Yachendra claimed knowledge of massive sex exploits, murder plans and embezzlements by Sai Baba and his institutions or hired assassains, promising documentation in full. Sai Baba offered huge cash payment to anyone who would murder Premanand? M.K. Yachendra stated in an e-mail 3.1.2005 in March 1998 “before one of my students very eyes Sathya Sai Baba offered someone Rs. 10,00,OOO/- to eliminate Mr. Premanand”.

Gerald Moreno: absurd screencap fraud claims contra Priddy

Posted by robertpriddy on May 27, 2010

Gerald Moreno is a known and widely and independently proven abuser of facts and truth – claiming my copies of his web texts are ‘fraudulent’ when I have never altered any texts he actually posted. Moreno cannot prove otherwise, however much he writes! No meaningful part of his text or his images has been altered or counterfeited in any way! So his claims are totally without any serious basis, as those who wish to search can discover. He rants on and on about pointless details and loses all sense of proportion and normal sane evaluation as follows (this is but a small sample of his virtually endless ravings):

“Why Robert Priddy would continue to shamelessly and recklessly publish falsified and fraudulent screencaps against Moreno remains a mystery.

Robert Priddy is a liar, deceiver and falsifier who is so desperate and frenzied to smear Gerald Joe Moreno, he apparently needs to resort to blatant acts of screencap fraud and apparently doesn’t care if everyone sees him doing it! Now readers have a better idea why Gerald Moreno often refers to Robert Priddy as a mentally imbalanced “extremist” and “fanatic” in need of orthodox psychological help.”
(from Moreno’s :Ex-Devotee Robert Priddy Resorting To Open Acts Of Screencap Fraud” blog)

The above statement is another Moreno tit-for-tat, for I first pointed out that he shows all the signs of mental instability. His characterisation of me is illustrative of what can only be a deep unconscious projection of his own negative ‘shadow’ personality onto me. The same inflammatory style of subconscious projection has been fully demonstrated by him in hundreds of web logs/pages against many other ex-devotees of Sai Baba. He has compiled a vast compendium of derogatory and bitterly hateful postings against dissidents – but ex-Sai Baba followers, ex-Ammachi followers, ex-Muktananda followers, Wikipedia commentators negative to Sathya Sai Baba and more such groupings. Some practicing psychologists I know very well consider he suffers from a disorder – most probably OCD, obsessive compulsive disorder. This may partly arise from his admitted confusion and worries about finding God and being oiled “on the lower stomach” in private session with Sathya Sai Baba. Unlike him, I am now free of delusions about Sai Baba, though I had for years been inducted into holding similar views to Moreno (if never so blindly). Hence, my psychological state is now entirely untroubled by these issues. Far from needing to seek psychiatric help, I provide support and counsel to many former Sai Baba devotees who reportedly benefit greatly from this work, which I see as a duty. (Just for the record concerning my qualification to make a general assessment of Moreno’s psyche, I formerly worked professionally in several very progressive therapeutic institutions with diverse psychiatric connections and I lectured for years at the Institute of Psychology, University of Oslo).

Everything Moreno abhors that I write rebutting his ravings or pointing out their nature, he always throws back at me, with added bad language in an under-achiever’s tit-for-tat fashion. I put up with several years of abuse from him before embarking on a series of rebuttals of his libels and lies. His actions show he is very far indeed from behaving remotely like any kind of spiritual devotee of any kind. Further, he denies he is a devotee of SSB and does not believe in his major claims (avatarhood, omnipotence, omniscience and more), yet he runs an adulatory sathyasaibaba blog on wordpress and promotes Sathya Sai Baba. That is fraud… because he denies the truth of SSB’s constantly repeated self-descrpition. It equates to calling Sai Baba major liar! (Indeed, one of megalomaniac proportions).

In his usual obsessively meticulous style,  Moreno makes everything he can – however far-fetched and paranoidal – out of tiny irrelevant facts, not one of which shows me as a liar because I am not! He is oblivious that I often use a cache or an anonymous web proxy to secure a screencap of parts of his pages, which are often different to his actual page in various details like colour etc.. I also compact captured texts to save space, or darken the jpeg to make the text more clearly readable (which alters the other colours somewhat).  All this he calls ‘counterfeiting’ and the like! He points out a background colour change from his website – entirely irrelevant as it was due to using proxy cache etc. Likewise, a small red arrow appears on a cache of one of my captures of his text which was not on his!

In his complete lack of any evidence which impunges on my integrity, he has descended to dirty name-calling (“laughable pervert”, “dirty old man”, “blatant liar”, “shameless liar”, “Heil Priddy” ,”a boaster” (I have never boasted or wished to do so, unlike the wholly unqualified Moreno who boasts of being a thorough researcher, which he is far from being), suffering from “senile dementia” (which I certainly do not) – and much more I can’t be bothered to document here). See an independent witness that his agenda is only to slander me. His envious and obnoxious speculations about my personality – which all who know me are aware – are entirely false, yet he presents them as if they were factual!  He has never met met or seen me. His dirty epithets apply, not to me, but if anything to the guru, Sathya Sai Baba, he so admires – even though long having admitted he believed him to be a sexual abuser(!!). He would be well advised to be a lot more careful with his ever-repeated personal attacks on scores of dissidents of Sai Baba and other gurus. His content and his low and calculated diversionary tactics show how he is the only perverter of facts and the truth here.

Despite his failure to prove anything deceitful against me, his immense frustration at being unable to score any truthful points against me or the the main critics of Sathya Sai Baba has led him into countless hateful attacks and attempts at character assassination against dozens of us. He uses many dirty tricks, postings about dissidents on porno sites, on web directories and all manner of irrelevant opening to obtain as much exposure as he can, besides manipulating copyrighted images into perversions in several cases too. Here are some of his ‘arguments’ against dissenters:-

After several years of almost total restraint, I began in 2008 to rebut a considerable amount of his countless attack pages with facts, not lies (as he tries to make out). The mass of these show him to be a more than diligent student of every word I write, and a eager describer of every possible tiniest detail on which he could pick and embroider his agenda. He even rails over inadvertent typos I have made and devotes entire blogs to them, which only exhibit his mental failings further! (See here)

Moreno falsely portrays me – against his own better knowledge – as a LSD advocate (see here). He further claims that I have posted counterfeit screencaps from his vishvarupa.com site (which was often changed and – for a long period – blocked from being archived thus making independent wayback archival proof impossible)  and that I and other have ‘refused’ to show the full evidence) No such refusal has been issued, it is just not worth bothering with such empty exchanges with Moreno. However, so as not to break copyright rules by posting a complete download of his former series of vishvarupa.com pages, I offer this on a one-to-one basis to anyone who contacts me through the comments section here asking for this, but only on conditions of confidentiality (and they must not be mischief-makers like Moreno).

Here are some examples of Moreno’s hate campaign from some of his many paranoid blogs:-

This is one of  Joe Moreno's defenses of Sathya Sai Baba and himself

This is one of Joe Moreno’s defenses of Sathya Sai Baba and himself

Gerald Moreno justifies his defamatory manipulations buy saying:- “Funny how those who poke fun others appearances look rather pathetic themselves. I say turnabout is fair play”

I have pointed out that Sathya Sai Baba in his supposed ‘omniscience’ and ‘omnipotence’ has claimed his appearance will always remain youthful (just like Krishna who always was as a youth of 16 years of age). Yet his whole being has deteriorated remarkably and most visibly- and has a vacant state and a clearly aged facial and neck features – besides being wheelchair bound due to his conceitedly ignoring his six doctors’ remedial advice after his hip joint was shattered and operated on.

In my case, however, I have never made any such claims about my appearance. (Note that Moreno uses a copyright photo of me here too… the hypocrite).

Moreno underlines his lack of substantial arguments by resorting to  manipulations of those he hates – see his distortion of the face of Reinier van der Sandt and the body of Sanjay Dadlani:-

Barry Pittard on sex abuses – Scouts, Nithyananda, Sathya Sai Baba, Pope

Posted by robertpriddy on April 1, 2010

In the current very promising awakening of the public and the media to more and more religious sexual abuse, Barry Pittard draws parallels and comparisons between some of the major cases in the public eye at present. That this phenomenon is not merely found in religious institutions is obvious, but the overwhelming attempt at cover-up seem to be endemic to all religions, sects and cults.
Is Heat Too Much For Swami Nityananda, Under Fire By Sex Abuse Allegations?
Boy Scouts of America – Sex Abuse Revelations. Who Next?

Sexual Abuse Priests. What?! The Pope Never Knew?
Why Nithyananda Sex Scandal Investigations and Not A Sathya Sai Baba Probe?

Standing Up To Cultic Monoliths. (Sathya Sai Baba Organization Example)

One striking similarity between the Catholic Church and Sai Baba is that both have State authority for their cover-ups.. the Pope is head of Vatican State and Sai Baba has the Indian government at his feet and in his pocket.

Gerald Moreno firmly defends sex abusers and cover-up

Posted by robertpriddy on March 31, 2010

In recent days at our blogsites, Barry Pittard, former lecturer at the Sathya Sai College at Whitefield, and I have made a number of comparisons between the massive Roman Catholic sex abuse cover-up and that of Sathya Sai Baba and his officials. Gerald ‘Joe’ Moreno is leagued with key associates of Sai Baba constantly attacks anyone who speaks out about the innumerable sexual and other allegations against Sai Baba and certain of his confederates. These vitriolic and obsessive attacks have continued almost daily for about 6 years. He ridicules virtually everything we have written, as well as initiates attacks on ourselves and families. These attacks even extend to our children, one of them still a minor, and include attacks relating to business, university, community and profession. These attacks have been reported to various authorities, which are hamstrung owing to difficulties attending the current state of the internet. See comment by Barry Pittard.

Gerald Moreno declared he believed Sathya Sai Baba to be a sexual abuser

Scan of part of Gerald Moreno FAQ page since removed by him as damage limitation. For several years Moreno defended Sathya Sai Baba in hundreds of postings against every criticism, while himself believing this!!

As ever, Moreno always plants himself firmly on the side of sexual abuse cover-up, denying it or defending it, and never exposes or attacks it in any way… (see scan of his credo for years – on the right). Further, Moreno has for many years defended Swami Premananda (http://www.vishvarupa.com/swami-sri-premananda.html) , who is serving a double life sentence for multiple rape and murder, based on DNA analysis. Premananda’s appeal to the highest court in India was refused! (See prosecution data here)

Moreno thus shows himself to lean strongly towards denial of the truth even of fully proven sexual abuses. There is a very convincing reason for this – that he was himself groomed in a sexual molestation incident with Sathya Sai Baba which event – along with the many testimonies by young men, their parents and others against Sai Baba  – originally led him to realise this ‘God’ is a sexual abuser.  However, he chose later to deny that Sai Baba’s oiling of the nether parts of the stomach could have been grooming for sexual relations (as is openly testified was the case by many others) plunging himself further into indoctrination and denial, admitting being confused and sexually inhibited afterwards (according to his own published explanation). He has fought a losing battle against the truly formidable circumstantial evidence that has built up and continues to come in. The Catholic Church abuses alone prove that it take decades for abused persons to come forth with their accounts, so much more may be expected as the years go by.

Moreno never presents serious argumentation other than character assassination, smears, endless charges of lying – and he uses all manner of dirty tricks rather than any independent documentation or rational and well-founded arguments to confront what we assert. He strenuously avoids the issue of the accountability and transparency that should confront the international Sathya Sai Organization, just as it faces all institutions in a democratic society. Many decent Sai Baba followers find his acute negativism, hatred, jeering and offensive language abhorrent, for they run contrary to Sai Baba’s own explicit teachings. In fact, many of the world’s most responsible investigative media like the BBC, CBC, SBS, DR, Times of London, Telegraph, Guardian, India Today, The Age, Salon.com, and so forth, have exposed Sathya Sai Baba and his cult as highly authoritarian and unaccountable. Interestingly, virtually no one goes public in his favour, while many do on our behalf. (1460 persons so far have signed the petition we helped to instigate).

‘The Secret Swami’ & U.S. State Department Warning against Sai Baba

Posted by robertpriddy on December 14, 2009

The Sathya Sai Baba cult runs a massive disinformation and cover-up campaign, headed by Gerald Moreno, which tries to distort key facts about the US State Department DIRECT warning about Sathya Sai Baba. Moreno claims the State Department did not directly name Sai Baba – but this is not true, as was confirmed to the BBC presenter of the 1 hour documentary ‘The Secret Swami’ when she contacted the U.S. Embassy in Delhi. It is obvious to any serious and neutral observer that the U.S. State Department does not issue warnings without having investigated the reasons most thoroughly! The State Department NEVER issued any formal withdrawal of the warning against Sai Baba, which would have also required them to make an apology for promoting false information. No such thing occurred, the warning simply became outdated, no doubt due to Sai Baba’s subsequent chronic invalidism and reduced capacity to meet devotees in private or continue the named “inappropriate sexual behaviour” in private interviews.

Moreno’s whole argument is that the warning was withdrawn. However, ‘withdrawal’ of a web page is not the same as withdrawal of the allegations already made by such responsible bodies, for no mention is made of refutation of the warnings, far from it.
The said web page did only make an ‘indirect’ reference to Sai Baba because no formal court order had been achieved against Sai Baba, so he could not be named for legal reasons only. The warning was made, did refer to him, as he was nevertheless named by US officials who were contactable.
TRANSCRIPT – BBC report on investigations at the U.S. Embassy, Delhi.
Tanya Datta:
The American Government is also concerned. On the web site of the American Embassy in Delhi there’s a warning to U.S. citizens visiting the State of Andhra Pradesh. It draws attention to a noted Godman who reportedly indulges in inappropriate sexual behaviour with young male devotees.We contacted the U.S. Embassy in Delhi and they confirmed to us, and for the first time, that they are directly referring to Sai Baba.

The BBC confirms that Sathya Sai Baba was directly named by the U.S. State Embassy

US Deputy of State warning to travelers

CRIME IN ANDHRA PRADESH – Americans traveling to or residing in Andhra Pradesh should also be aware that there have been media and other reports of inappropriate sexual behavior by a prominent local religious leader. Most of the reports indicate that the subjects of these approaches have been young male devotees, including a number of Americans. Although these reports are unconfirmed, American citizens should be aware of this information.

Gerald Moreno, master of two-bit triviality.

Posted by robertpriddy on December 8, 2009

On one of his series of blogs aiming to defame and ridicule all critics of Sathya Sai Baba, Gerald Moreno has had to resort to what he finds to be funny… nothing less than a small typo I made. I wrote 670 instead of 70. A hilarious error? One can even be led to think that he did not even realise he was looking at a typo! His taste in what passes for him as ‘funny’ falls flatter than the corniest vaudeville, and that is hard corn! He makes out that this is evidence that I am ‘mentally unsound’ and not of ‘unimpaired memory’ [it actually is unimpared!! Instead he shows the true quality of his judgement! Once more he flaunts his obsessive nit-picking triteness of mind as if it were an asset… only to bring home the fact that he has nothing whatever serious to level against me. It’s almost a surprise he didn’t charge me with a blatant lie and/or fraud, as he invariably does (even though I have never written one single lie!).

Moreno’s entire aim with such a bagatelle is evidently just to get a fresh Google Alert and search engine listings in the hope that people will take more notice of him and his many links to his massive compendium of lie-and- libel pages which are prominently placed under the blog’s title ‘Sathya Sai Baba – Love, Light and Spirituality’!! In so doing – and despite his desire to exterminate all criticism of the guru he defends to the hilt – he continually draws attention to the fact that Sathya Sai Baba is under what he himself has called ‘great criticism’… being his widely reported but uninvestigated sexual abuses and evident endorsement and complicity in the execution of four young men in his bedroom and the following cover-up, besides much else. Moreno keeps the existence of a major controversy nicely fired up in the minds of anyone who visits his contumelious pages, where his contributions certainly turn off anyone with a shred of independent judgement. The more Gerald Moreno writes the deeper the hole he digs for Sai Baba and for himself. No doubt he also embarrasses many of those Sai followers who do actually take seriously some of the values their guru-God preaches… like criticizing oneself instead of others, showing kindness, consideration, love, respect for others, seeing no wrong in others etc. ad infinitum.

The shame is that Sai Baba himself breaks with these virtues in his own demonizing of critics and many others, especially when he calls people ‘bad’ in interviews. as I have heard him do. The Pollyanna attitude in Sai Baba’s largely unrealistic puritan ‘teaching’ is so extreme and religiously fundamentalist that anyone who pretends to follow it becomes a hypocrite… for they cannot free themselves from critical thoughts about others and many other natural and even necessary human traits which Sai Baba rejects as evil. Moreno may be said to follow Sai Baba in ignoring all the sweet talking stuff and aiming to blacken and demonize critics, (stalking them both on and off the Internet intruding into family and professional life via phone and email) and trying to assassinate the characters of many who have given decades of their lives to the most caring devotion and service). This is an indictment of HIS lack of integrity, while dozens of informed and independent observers find that my integrity remains intact. The same goes for Barry Pittard, who Moreno has attacked most scurrilously. Moreno, for example, has repeatedly and viciously used the name, in titles and articles, of this prominent former devotee/critic’s young son from when he was about 7 years of age (and even falsely increasing the age by a number of years to 12!), and attacked the business of a young woman whom he (Moreno) wrongly accuses of being a critic of Sathya Sai Baba. That Moreno has close association in these and many other attacks on former devotees with the Saibabaofindia group, known to be close to Sathya Sai Baba, is a telling indictment on the Sathya Sai Organisation, which would allow this nexus, which runs so contrarily to the Sai Baba teachings, and which is so atypical of the decent behaviour of many Sathya Sai devotees. [Sai Baba Hatchet Man Picks On A Young Child]. Such is this Sai Baba defender’s moral depths… and they sink lower and lower as the following blogs show with complete clarity:-

Gerald Moreno: homo-erotic fantasies, latent homosexuality

Posted by robertpriddy on October 16, 2009

This fanatical defender of Sathya Sai Baba and everything about him has – in his usual disgusting feral attacks on dissidents – tried to make out that I have homo-erotic fantasies and that I am a latent homosexual. Of course, this is a desperate attempt to smear me with a complete untruth, one for which there is of course not a shred of evidence. Readers may wonder why he does this? Here is a brief resumé of the reason:-

Sathya Sai Baba is very widely reported – even by some of his own officials – as using oiling of the genitals. Accounts of his molestation show that this often turned out to be a prelude to homosexual acts with young men and underage boys in private interviews. Gerald Moreno described (see here) how, in a private interview, Sathya Sai Baba oiled him “on the lower stomach” (without explaining exactly how low – so one can assume it was in the pubic area). He later came to believe that Sathya Sai Baba IS a sexual abuser, and posted this view on his website (see here). Then he changed his mind – having already spent two years attacking all those who testified that Sai Baba abused them sexually.

This alone strongly indicates Moreno’s deep uncertainty about why Sai Baba oiled him – no doubt, in view of all the evidence presented, he must have at least thought it was grooming for possible sex. Later, when he decided his position was totally untenable (as it was – defending to the hilt someone he thought to be a sexual abuser) he took the first somewhat plausible opportunity to declare that he was certain Sai Baba is NOT a sexual abuser. That ‘opportunity’ came when Alaya Rahm, one of the most outspoken accusers of Sai Baba for sexual abuse, withdrew a court case against the US Sai Baba authorities. The withdrawal was simply due to there being no way to sue Sai Baba from the USA, nor was there any accountable Sathya Sai Organization registered in the USA. Moreno has incessantly tried to twist this into a whitewashing of Sai Baba and a verdict condemning Alaya Rahm… while it most certainly is no such thing. It was simply a court case that was dismissed by the litigant (see here)! Moreno has written endless pages trying to prove his opinion, not least a constant flood of inserts on the Wikipedia Sathya Sai Baba page. In this last concerted attempts he failed miserably, having to accept that his entries were not reputable and eventually being indefinitely banned from Wikipedia by a unanimous panel of six administrators.

I do not suffer from any known mental deficiencies or illnesses that Moreno claims I do (i.e. without a shred of evidence and out of hate) nor do most of the critics of Sathya Sai Baba… but those who continue to overlook the evidence of sexual abuse and murders involved do suffer from one kind or another of cognitive disorder… Moreno continues to expose himself such a very disturbed person (see links below).

Wikipedia harassment by pro-Sai Baba activists

Posted by robertpriddy on September 12, 2009

For the sake of setting the record straight concerning harassment on Wikipedia, I repost the following points from the Requests for Arbitration discussion. Note that user SSS108 is Gerald Joe Moreno, who still energetically radiates his attacks on all dissidents and critics of Sathya Sai Baba:-

Statement by M Alan Kazlev

I was a devotee of Sai Baba for more than two decades, and therefore was originally sympathetic to the arguments of SSS108, who contacted me when I had inadvertently been caught in the crossfire of the flamewar between certain followers and certain critics of SSB. Having assessed and corresponded at length with representatives of both sides (SS108 on the SSB side, and several ex-devotees regarding the side that is concerned about the allegations), as well as looking at what both sides had written, I came to the conclusion that the allegations made concerning Sai Baba are factual, but that Sai Baba is not simply a fake or con-artist. Rather he belongs to an ambiguous category in which both truth and falsehood are inextricably mixed (as explained on my website etc). I have observed that SSS108 uses tactics of slander, libel, and smear against ex-devotees in order to discredit their reports of sexual abuse by SSB. Again, this is explained on my website, with especial reference to Robert Priddy.

Once I was considered to be no longer a naive devotee of SSB, SS108 decided to try to attack me, and has a rather amusing blog dedicated to me. My only interest re the SSB page is that both sides of the argument should be presented, without bias, and there should not be censorship or bullying of any kind. This would allow the reader who is unfamiliar with this subject to come to their own conclusions. M Alan Kazlev 04:36, 22 December 2006 (UTC)———

SSS108 continues to be aggressive, abusive[44], and confrontational. —Mel Etitis (Μελ Ετητης) 10:31, 22 January 2007 (UTC)

I’ve now had to block him for harassment and incivility; his response was to make obscure and unfounded accusations against my being involved in a conflict of interest on an article that I’ve hardly touched. —Mel Etitis (Talk) 09:16, 15 February 2007 (UTC)

Statement on Wikipedia by ProEdits  (Robert Priddy)

SSS108 has consistently used Wikipedia pages to attempt to defame me and attack me, my statements and biography in apparently any way he can devise (such as on the Robert Priddy talk page), constantly calling me ‘a liar’ see User_talk:84.208.99.96 and a blatant one also http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:SSS108#.E2.86.91.C2.A0_Blatant_Untruths_From_ProEdits_.E2.86.91.C2.AO without any reliable independent evidence on Wikipedia or elsewhere. This is obvious to me, of course, because I have never lied in any of my writings, which means consciously to tell something one knows or firmly believes to be untrue. Neither SSS108 nor FreeLanceResearch (Lisa de Witt) can show that I have ‘lied’ or that I am ‘a liar’.  I have recently reaffirmed the opinion that Sai Baba is SSS108s guru, which he repeatedly writes is ‘a lie’. It is not a lie but a matter of definition, and the facts speak loud to favour my interpretation, that SSS108s apparent full-time defence throughout Wikipedia and the Internet of Sathya Sai, his organisation and almost anyone who is a devotee (for several years even while he admitted on his own website he believed him to be a sexual abuser!)

One example; on my talk page SSS108 has concocted a proposition that there was a “million dollar legal suit against Robert Priddy” [45] . No lawsuit has ever been filed against me, nor even have I received any such claim from anyone, neither from Rebello, let alone any lawyer. May I say in this connection that the same Rebello, who wears the title ‘Dr.’ has been reported by FreeLanceResearch as saying some years ago that I am dying of AIDS [46], though I have never had AIDS and nor has Rebello ever even seen me (COMMENT inserted today: some ‘doctor’ – merely a doctor of homeopathy! No doubt a fraudulent claimant to any medical degree). His claim of a million dollar lawsuit falls into the same category of statement! This is the kind of tactic SSS108 uses against me on a major scale (ADDITION today: claiming that I was threatened with a lawsuit, which I never was. It was the free web server he threatened, who decided it was not worth the battle, not surprisingly).

Further, SSS108 refers to matters external to Wikipedia in that he asserts on my talk page and elsewhere that I have had 6 websites deleted for defamation, but the webmasters or ISPs involved in my discontinued free website space have never informed that there was any defamation by me, or I would certainly have reacted. Moreover, there is no material I have posted against Sai Baba which is not still found on other of my websites, where I have gradually collected all other ‘stray materials’ from former web pages. SSS108 falsely claims (i.e without any public evidence) that a website ‘robert-priddy.fulldisclosure.dyndns.org/ ‘was mine, but it must have been made by someone else as I never made it (see Google). I can only think it was an attempt at further defamation of me by one of my most active critics, as also was the porn site entry of one of my URLs (as if I would pay to enter my own URL there! (See on Google), which SSS108 has publicised widely on the web with screen captures as part of his dirty tricks campaign.Because I truthfully and most successfully criticise Sathya Sai Baba on grounds that no one has been able to prove untrue in any detail and not therefore either defamatory or libellous.

SSS108 is wiki-stalking [47] various critics of Sathya Sai Baba. For example, SSS108 followed me to the ‘Arne Næss’ Wiki page [48], where – having taught some of Næss’ philosophy for many years – I made an entry which was admittedly original research. I was not then aware of the policy of Wikipedia on original research. SSS108 Wiki-stalked me to that page and deleted my contribution (but it was reinstated by another editor). SSS108 also stalked me by adding links to his [highly slanderous] web pages about me onto my personal Wiki page 1 (which he was virtually forced to remove when he learned from the active Wiki editor Alan Kazlev of Wiki policy on biographies of living persons). He continues to cause maximum disruption by arbitration requests etc.

SSS108 and FreeLanceResearch also therefore Wiki-stalked the prominent Wikipedia editor M. Alan Kazlev by adding their votes to help close down his personal Wiki page, which incidentally had nothing to do with Sathya Sai Baba, and SSS108 also posted a vituperative blog against him after he realised that SSS108 is a slanderer – see Statement by [49].

As further evidence [external but relevant as background, I assume, since Wiki arbitrators here also refer to external events on occasion] that SSS108s Wiki writings are an extension of his stalking agenda, SSS108 repeatedly attacked and stalked the Sai critic Barry Pittard, reporting contacts with Pittard’s former partner to dig for information against Pittard, and the results he posted as outright slander on his website and on Yahoo sathyasaibaba2 group [see http://www.saiguru.net/english/articles/130serious_defamation_attempt.htm

Extra note: The sathyasaibaba2 group was terminated by the moderator due to excessive abuse by de SWitt and Moreno etc. Lisa de Witt has copied and even exceeded her advisor, Joe108/SSS108 aka Moreno,  in calling me such, whether blatant, flagrant, shameless or the like (see some of her countless accusations here) and look at the language and real vileness of some few of Moreno’s disgusting allegations here. This Mr. Moreno is the webmaster of a blog pretending to stand for ‘Love, Life and Sopirituality’ where he posts under the name of ‘sathysaibaba’ no less…  A real Jekyll and Hyde at work!
