Lisa de Witt: attack on editor of Nexus, Duncan Roads

Posted by robertpriddy on January 13, 2010

One of the most viciously virulent cyber attackers of all Sai critics is Gerald Moreno’s protégé and smear apprentice, Lisa de Witt of Arizona:-

Lisa De Witt’s wrote (Fri Jun 13, 2003  10:56 p.m.:at no longer available :

This is how DUMB Duncan Rhodes of NEXUS is. He goes around telling people that AIDS is NOT caused by a virus and so therefore cannot be transmitted sexually. So much for his ‘careful’ research.

Duncan Roads replied to this as follows:-

From: Duncan Roads Sent: June 15, 2003 12:15 AM

As usual, the ignorant and uninformed yell the loudest, call people ‘retards’ , and as usual they are wrong.
Let’s start from the top.

1) My surname is Roads, not Rhodes.
2) I do NOT go “around telling people that AIDS is NOT caused by a virus ….. “.
3) I HAVE published several articles which clearly show that AIDS is NOT caused by HIV. I am not alone in this. The world’s top experts in retroviruses also maintain this stance, as do hundreds of other scientists.
4) Nowhere in these articles does it say that AIDS cannot be transmitted sexually.
5) Back to the point, does this person’s ignorance of who I am and what I publish reflect on whether or not Sai Baba is a pedophile and rapist?
6) I personally interviewed victims and parents. I used to be a believer and I denied these accounts as fiction, UNTIL I INVESTIGATED THEM.

I challenge anyone who thinks Sai Baba is innocent of these allegations, to speak to the victims, and emerge with no doubts.
It was a sad day for me to learn of Sai Baba’s true nature. It was even sadder to receive the most foul-languaged abuse I have ever received, from Sai Baba devotees, after I published our findings.
Sai Baba has told followers to close their ears and shut their eyes to these allegations. He does this because he fears what will happen when his followers wake up.
The followers who refuse to investigate for themselves, are also fearful to discover that they have been following a lie all these years.
God is within each of us, he is not Sai Baba!
Duncan (Duncan M. Roads – Editor, NEXUS Magazine

After this rational reply, Lisa de Witt – inflamed as usual – replied on the (now deleted) Sathyasaibaba2 group on Mon Jun 16, 2003  11:55 pm, (sathyasaibaba2/message/31371):- as below (highlighted in red). Note that Duncan Roads replies to her points are inserted in violet text:-

(de Witt) As far as Roads, I was on a message board where he swore up and down AIDS was not sexually transmitted which is what one would assume since he swears AIDS is NOT caused by a virus, even though he appears to be trying to worm his way out of it now. I dare him to sleep with an AIDS-infected person if he believes so much in his great ‘scientists’. Obviously, the scientists he collects his research from don’t know what they are talking about since the MAINSTREAM medical and scientific community says AIDS IS caused by a virus. Personally, I think people like him are part of the eugenics movement.

Duncan Roads Okay, show me those postings. I don’t have to worm my way out of anything to do with the fact that HIV does NOT cause AIDS, because HIV does NOT cause AIDS. The rest of your claims above are outright lies, as you well know.

(de Witt) Again, like most fascists in this group, Roads has pronounced Baba guilty until proven innocent. Not ONE of YOU has bothered to try and investigate the OTHER side of the story. In a COURT of LAW EACH ACCUSATION would have to be proven on it’s OWN merit. Apparently, each of you thinks YOU are beyond the law.

Duncan Roads Your tactics of smear and distraction should only make readers more suspicious of your motives. It is worth mentioning that while I was investigating the claims against Sai Baba, not one representative of the movement denied the claims. NOT ONE!!!! Instead, they sought to tell me that ‘all the good Sai Baba does, outweighs the bad’.

This means that the representatives I spoke to condone the rape and sexual molestation of young boys and men. I wonder how much Lisa actually knows herself. Is she just hoping all this is wrong, or has she done even a tiny bit of research?

So Lisa, stop the lies, the smear tactics and the distraction. I challenge you to interview victims and relatives and report back to this list with your findings.

It is time for you to put up, or shut up.

Duncan M. Roads
Editor, NEXUS Magazine

The unqualified and demagogical Lisa de Witt – one of those Sathya Sai devotees who is in total denial – claims to be a ‘researcher’ of Sai Baba affairs and who has stated that he has visions of Jesus, Shirdi Sai Baba and so forth, was unable to reply in any rational way to this. So she apparently ‘shut up’ for once!

Nexus Magazine, Duncan Roads: Sai Baba fraudulence and abuse

Posted by robertpriddy on January 13, 2010

from NEXUS Magazine (2000) 
Shame, shame

Sai Baba is being exposed as a pedophile.
As a former believer I have always dismissed rumours of Sai Baba’s sexual impropriety as ‘tall poppy syndrome’. However recent testimonials made available to myself caused me to dig a bit further. To my horror I discovereda pattern of sexual abuse of young men and boys, including rape. I have spoken with so many people from many countries. The rumours are not rumours, they are truth. I am shocked. I am running an article exposing this shoddy ‘guru’. You can expect the mainstream media to follow hot on the heels of our article. What horrifies me the most of all, is that most of the administrative hierarchy already knew of this, but turned a blind eye in order to maintain ‘status’, prestige, and basically EGO.

Shame on you all! You will be exposed and the truth will come out. There are now many more men and boys coming forward, many more than you think.

Shame on you. Petitions are circulating calling for the public closure of Sai Baba centres until the matter is cleared up.Is your centre acting thus?

I await your reply. No reply will be reported in my magazine also, and readers will no doubt draw their own conclusions.

Shame on you!
(Duncan Roads, Editor Nexus Magazine) (also posted at – no longer available Document date: Tue, 25 Jul 2000 23:50:28 +1000

August 2000 Nexus Magazine also published  the following :-

FRAUD, FAKERY AND MOLESTATION (from Nexus Magazine, Volume 7, Number 5, August-September 2000)

“It is fair to say that Sai Baba is a highly revered spiritual leader, whose life and message has inspired millions of people throughout the world to turn Godward and lead more purposeful and moral lives. The stories of his “miracles” are many and legendary in their telling and retelling. Scores of famous Westerners have added their own exciting synchronistic accounts of how Sai Baba saved them from certain death by “appearing” before them at crucial moments. Accounts of Sai baba-related manifestations and materialisations are also widespread, adding to the air that Sai Baba is literally the reappearance of God on Earth.
Unfortunately, this is where the fairytale ends.

A growing number of boys and men are coming forward with allegations of sexual harassment, sexual abuse and rape. And now that attention has been focused on the Swami, one finds many more accounts of faked miracles, suspicious deaths, massive financial fraud, weapons and explosives being found in the ashram, an assassination attempt, and yet more cases of paedophilia and homosexual abuse.

With news of these events and other incidents, the seeds of doubt have been sown in many minds. How is it that Sai Baba’s own brother-in-law died of rabies? Why did Baba need to be hospitalised for a ruptured appendix and a broken leg? Why does he travel in Mercedes cars and require heavy protection? Why does Sai Baba have to wave his hand in circles before producing anything? Does his occasional transvestitism and derision for women really illustrate the male-female principle of the universe?

It is possible we will never find the real truth to many of the above rumours and allegations, with the exception of the sexual abuse cases. We have extracted the following accounts from just three of the many testimonies now emerging. We have also spoken to many former long-term devotees who have now left the organisation.

For those wishing to pursue this matter further, we suggest as a starting point that you get onto the Internet and visit [that site has been closed and replaced by

Let me emphasize that this information does not reflect one or two disgruntled devotees “who did not get enough attention”. It reflects the fact that many, many boys and young men have been sexually abused by someone in whom they gave their total trust. Their silence was maintained because the victims knew that no one would believe them.
I hope this article can rectify that situation somewhat.

Duncan M. Roads (Editor)
Excerpt only. See the whole shocking testimony by known, reliable persons:-   Terry Gallagher’s testimony  Hans de Kraker’s testimony   Jens & Gurprit’s Sethi’s testimony

This led to greater publicity, and another spate of resignations from the Sathya Sai Organizations branches, particularly in Australia. The integrity of Duncan Roads, the editor of Nexus Magazine, is revealed as one reads of his initial reluctance to publish a ‘negative article’ about a person revered by so many of his magazines readership. However after doing some substantial personal research and becoming convinced of the truth of the testimonies he courageously went to print, regardless of the consequences. This report includes an email from Duncan Roads to the author outlining his process prior to printing and his observations of the consequences after printing.

Duncan Roads was attacked by two fanatical Sathya Sai Baba supporters see here and here who distorted almost everything Roads writes as inaccurate, false etc., (see as they did always did with every single criticism of Sai Baba for sexual abuse, murder involvement, fraudulent materializations and all critical statements about him or the Sathya Sai Organization, however weighty the commentator (eg. the BBC, the Daily Telegraph, The Guardian and countless other respected media). They have attacked Duncan Roads for publishing others’ opinions of quite other issues than Sathya Sai Baba (AIDS, anti-Semitism, USA corruption and a long list of other items)  and smear him with their typical  tendentious spin for opinions he does not himself hold. The ring leader troll charged Duncan Roads with not having investigated any of the sex abuse claims personally, but – in another context (see here), Roads has clearly stated:-

“It is worth mentioning that while I was investigating the claims against Sai Baba, not one representative of the movement denied the claims. NOT ONE!!!! Instead, they sought to tell me that ‘all the good Sai Baba does, outweighs the bad’.

A Sai troll who writes massive blogs and web pages against every critics of Sai Baba and many other gurus falsely claimed that Roads asserted in his magazine:- There are “many, many” boys and young men who are coming forward with allegations of sexual harassment, sexual abuse and rape. However, ‘many, many’ is not what Roads wrote!  Summaries of each of the most shocking testimonies can be found here
and see many youth have come forward in public here. Further, as a trusted activists on the exposé work concerning Sathya Sai Baba and all his cover-up connections, numerous young men have contacted me and/or Barry Pittard in strict confidence stating that they were sexually abused by Sathya Sai Baba. (see example)

Their accounts are often most revealing of details of his methods, and each has its unique stamp of authenticity. We have checked their identities in many instances, yet some are so worried about repercussions for themselves or members of their families (some of whom live in Prashanthi Nilayam or Puttaparthi) that they naturally were unwilling to give confirmable details about themselves. Knowing that four devotees were murdered in cold-blood in Sai Baba’s apartment in 1993, this is probably a most wise precaution. Other reports – by Dr. Naresh Bhatia – a self-confessed sexual partner of Sathya Sai Baba – many, many boys have been misused by Sai Baba. Further, a former student has posted a list over 150 students through he collected from those who claimed to know they were abused by Sai Baba. (Prof. G. Venkataraman reports that he has spoken to some of them, who said they did not know their names were on the list. To a man who denies totally that Sai Baba is anything buy the Creator of the Universe and is totally pure, what else would they say? At least one student has informed us that Venkataraman knows of the pedophile activities reported of his guru-god, so he is a very dangerous person to confide in at all!).

Sathya Sai Baba engages in “occasional transvestism”  and that he derides women. These truth-twisting denials are found at

Yet, by contrast, there are many accounts of Sathya Sai Baba’s dislike of women, and he is known by all visitors to the ashrams to give far, far more time to males than females – both at darsan and in interviews. That he practised transvestism to a considerable degree (and was long known as ‘Radha’ in Puttaparthi when he went everywhere with his boyfriend, Krishna who shared his bedroom for some years) is an established fact.

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: and a blatant one also 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 ‘ ‘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

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!

sathyasaibaba in the shadows

Posted by robertpriddy on April 4, 2009

Moreno tries to remain as anonymous as possible wherever he can; which helps to gives the (false) impression that he is in the company of more others like himself interested in defending Sathya Sai Baba and his Organization by attacking their critics. Apropos this, out of the vaunted 60 million Sai followers (claimed by The Sathya Sai Organization as a minimum number! Or, absurdly, 600 million nowadays), only a relatively microscopic number visit his webpages and blogs and only a few of his ‘libel-disciples’ (like his most close cooperator, the unspeakable Lisa de Witt, plus the webmaster of and sometimes a few pro-Moreno abusive trolls) have openly joined his efforts. This shows what I have always held, that most foot soldiers in the Sathya Sai Organization are decent enough not to join him, even though they are deceived by Sathya Sai Baba and will not take the massed evidence that has been published against him into account.

Joe Moreno Very Shy of Personal Publicity Since he began his defamation campaign against hundreds of Sai critics (former devotees and in numerous cases also their families, their friends and associates, occasionally even their livelihoods) and not long after, he removed his photo from his website at He had posted it along with an account about himself and his visit to the ashram – and the private interview room – of Sathya Sai Baba (and his ‘oiling’ by him). Later he removed this as too compromising – but it was too late as it is downloaded and in good keeping. Since then he has religiously concealed all other particulars about himself. He claims falsely that his address and phone number were always available simply because his name was known. However, there are hundreds of Gerald Morenos in America and it took some experts who helped out considerable work to discover and verify that he is the one in Las Cruces, New Mexico – plus address and phone number. Yet Moreno asserts – as usual through guesswork and wrongly – that it was Øjvind Kyrø, the Danish journalist and documentary maker, who discovered these facts by normal means. Not so at all! His address and phone number were first published on, where my address and phone number have been on-line since before Moreno appeared. However, on a website he also claims the opposite! Is this inability to research or could it be his wilful deception? Let observers decide.


CLICK ON THE IMAGE ABOVE to see his actual face – ca. from 10 years ago. Joe Moreno is not a devotee but is the main defender of all Sathya Sai matters The major and unrepentant infringer of copyright – countless photos of critics and texts of mine – rails at length about ONE SINGLE photo which he for some reason is rather desperate to hide away.

Moreno soon became very shy of stating any true facts about himself, no doubt because he would cover up the extent of his massive campaign of character assassination, dirt-throwing, web stalking, libels etc. He has often avoided using his most known username (joe108) in favour of unidentifiable ones like Equalizer, sheilawaring, or – for most people less identifiable ones like visvarupa 108, SSS108 (on Wikipedia) GM, JM, GJM with or without the 108 suffix and so on All were gradually identified as being his. He has also used diverse IPs in his e-mails and comments, as has been documented on various occasions, though he tries to deny it, the proofs are there for any eventual further use. He denied he was equaliser until exposed definitively as such, and he denies that he posted on Netscape under the username sheilawaring – but he is exposed as having done that just after he had been banned under a previous pseudonym like JM108).

Joe Moreno would erase his tracks
He has made considerable efforts to get his image removed from websites and – here is a link to one such website (click on the image).
Having removed his personal account and any details about himself from his  website, Moreno still defends the convicted murderer and rapist Swami Premananda (double life sentence confirmed by Supreme Court Appeal) at, though he has removed former materials about that too! Moreno claims he has nothing to do with the Sathya Sai organization whatever, though he defends them at every turn of events.

Sai Baba and the lunatic fringe

Posted by robertpriddy on September 20, 2007

Photo by Kristian Linnemann
Lissen is clairvoyant and an artist, but she does not wish to waste energy by interfering in God’s work, so she began to eat again. (Photo: Kristian Linnemann)

Sai Baba saved Lissen, who once lived only on light!

Under the title ‘Brown rice is the new light’ Michael Jeppersen of the Danish National Newspaper Ekstra Bladet  [17. sep. 2007] describes his meeting with a Danish Sai Baba follower called Lissen Seligmann.
Apropos, the Danish Sathya Sai Organization, led by Thorbjørn Meyer of Handelshøyskole in Copenhagen, has been propagandising for visits to Sathya Sai Baba for many years. Here is a report on one result of such a visit:

Journalist Jeppersen joined a Biodynamic Consumer meeting in Copenhagen’s Fredriksberg, sat in a circle where participants presented themselves. One was an Indian man who does not eat, drink or sleep. Another was Judith who still does not eat, but unfortunately has fallen ill.  Others have tried to live without food or drink, others would like to, and one went over ‘into the light’ four days previously.
Lissen Seligmann began by telling of the advantages of not eating. One saves money, one needs no breaks for urinating, no more stomach aches, anorexia etc., an advantage to agriculture and the fishing industry and no more hunger in Africa.

Saved by Sai Baba
Lissen told of her life, educated in business, she got psychic problems then physical problems, then she was saved by the Indian guru Sai Baba. “But if he had been a pedofile, then he would not have had the aura he has, so that’s that” she said suddenly somewhat excited. When she came back from India she began feeding on light for the first time, learning how from a book by Jasmuheen, who lives from small light particles in the air. (The Australian ‘60 Minutes’ TV team, however, monitored Jasmuheen for 3 days when she had to have medical aid).

Feeding on light and meeting angels
Lissen first had classic symptoms of not eating or drinking: her vision blacking out, a bad taste in her mouth, a desire for fat food, sore legs etc. On the fourth day she met two angels who was shovelling coal into a fire. She asked why they had no wings. They replied: Wings, they are of course for galas.
On the ninth day she passed a kidney stone while urinating in the bath. She held out for 3 months until she got to know that she should begin to eat again. Quite simply, she met Sai Baba and a locomotive which drove round five and a half times, and that was that! What happened afterwards is the interesting bit. In March, Lissen stopped eating again but she suddenly had a compulsion to burp, just as when she had been a child! She discovered that the pains in her mucus membrane was frozen tears and that her eye problems came from watching TV and reading.

Then on April 18th, Lissen had a dream where she learned that she should eat brown rice.Two weeks later she dreamed of a mongrel bloodhound which howled. Her burping compulsion came of that, it was all connected. The hound was bloody, it was old karma, so it was washed and improved. Lissen pointed to her forehead “It is the forehead chackra which makes me a dirty mongrel”…And so on, wrote Jeppersen… until the break. Everyone clapped!
“I am letting it continue” said Lissen, and pointed towards the loft.

Other members of this fanatical lunatic fringe include Lisa de Witt, who claims to have communications from Shirdi Sai Baba, Sathya Sai Baba and Jesus… plus angels. She is the supporter and ‘colleague in ignorant and obsessional denial about Sai Baba’s failings’ of 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:/// site). Moreno is also a believer in the holy power of mandalas (which he produced with IT software and calls ‘art’), the power of crystals (and here he falsely identifies as being what is actually a plain glass ring-holder photographed on my mantlepiece which he has copied and annotated). He also firmly believes he was visited in the flesh by Sathya Sai Baba in his bedroom at night in New Mexico, when Sai Baba was demonstrably in India. (He was paralysed at the time and in great fear – symptom of narcolepsy).  Finally, he denies that Sathya Sai Baba having oiled his “lower stomach” in private in the inner interview room was not a case of sexual molestation, though that act fulfils all the requirements of sexual abuse under Indian (and foreign) law. Moreno has many other ‘lunatic fringe’ traits, such as believing that ‘holy nectar’ (amrit) is unearthly and is manifested by Sathya Sai Baba (as he believes many other objects are).
