Call For Media and Government Investigation

of Sathya Sai Baba And his worldwide cult, the Sathya Sai Organization

Sathya Sai Baba Man Gerald Moreno and Fact-Changing

Posted by Barry Pittard on August 19, 2009

Surely one of the worst cases of Internet defamation is that of the Gerald ‘Joe’ Moreno. It is known that he cooperates with certain who are around Sathya Sai Baba, and both prominent and rank-and-file members in general. There is evidence that his recipient list is several (it is said, fifteen plus) thousand.

The Sathya Sai Organization has to face many hard facts. Any lack of courage will not help. One of these facts is that organization members support Moreno, who constantly uses language of a kind that Sai Baba’s own discourses abundantly inveigh against. This participation by members more than suggests a desperation by many of his devotees to see their guru defended at any cost. The ‘Sathya’ – or Truth – that he allegedly stands for has been thrown to the winds.

I direct my readers to an article just posted by Robert Priddy, retired academic of the University of Oslo and former head of the Sathya Sai Organization in Norway. See his professional Wikipedia entry. His highly-organized and excellently linked main website is: Sathya Sai Baba In Word And Action. He writes:

… “the pro-Sai extremist Joe Moreno claims that ‘anti-Sai activists’ withheld the transcript of the second part of a phone conversation which David Bailey had with Thomas Wiehe of Sweden. This is entirely untrue. Both parts of the phone conversation were transcribed from the start (see here and here), and both were on-line too here and here).” Source: Moreno’s deception re David Bailey Phone Conversation

Moreno’s Incessant Attacks on Many Who Have Stood Forth

That so many who are now former devotees spent decades of their lives in the utmost dedication to humble and devoted service within or beyond his Sathya Sai Organization counts for nothing. Often at first hand in their (then) own Sai centers and amongst their extended network of Sai Baba devotees country-wide and world-wide, many investigated the allegations against Sathya Sai Baba of sexual abuse of boys and young men, and many other serious, sometimes criminal allegations, such as the ashram and Indian government cover up of the killings in Sathya Sai Baba’s private quarters. See:

However, some went further, and looked e.g., at the issue of the killings in his private quarters in 1993 and the massive ashram and government cover up that came into play. Indeed, there was an earlier flurry of leave-taking from his fold than the large exodus furthered by major media exposure circa 2000 and after.

Gerald Moreno and his Sathya Sai Baba Organization helpers do terrible injustice to the primary victims of abuse and murder and other crimes, and to these many who became deeply concerned about the compellingness of the allegations have long been widely respected in their own wider communities. As indeed they had been respected – and in some cases topmost leaders – when in the Sathya Sai Organization. They acted very far from the disgruntlement that Sathya Sai Baba and his leaders mendaciously tell their membership.

Many members have stood aside stifling their consciences. They have perpetrated a great injustice. They have let so many of those whom they for so many years loved and honored be execrated and defamed. History will not be forgiving of them. Perhaps, as occurred in examples like Nazi Germany, their own children will one day confront them.

Those who have dissented have acted with the responsibility and sense of duty that belong to conscience and good citizenship everywhere. From that moment they stood apart they have been reviled, shunned, and made subject to endless false witness. That the Sathya Sai Organization allows its members to work in with Gerald Moreno will continue for long to bring it the utmost discredit. Although the title of his main sites is: ‘Sathya Sai Baba Love, Light and Spirituality’, its extreme use of disgraceful language portrays its very lack of these qualities. See my:

Sathya Sai Baba Love, Light and Spirituality Exposed

Readiness of Former Devotees to Subject Themselves To Media and Juridical Processes

There are many former devotees who have long stood ready to cooperate with police forces and major institutions such as UNESCO. See: The Case of UNESCO’s Missing Media Advisory in democratic countries and well reputed investigative media such as the BBC, Times of London, The Telegraph, The Guardian, The Age and others in India, Europe and Canada.

From first to last, the Sathya Sai Baba Organization which has badly failed, to submit to bona fide, proper fora for accountability and transparency. See:

Brian Steel, whose important writings on Sathya Sai Baba-related issues are noted for scholarly caution in the use of words, has described Gerald Moreno as an Internet “bully” and “demagogue”. I may add that a psychologist who works with one of Australia’s most respected services, observing some of Moreno’s output, responded, “This is classic bullying”. See:

Gerald ‘Joe’ Moreno Banned By Wikipedia Authorities

A senior Wikipedia Arbitration Committee has banned Gerald Moreno. The independent and respected British scholar Kevin Shepherd has noted:

“In March 2007, Gerald Joe Moreno (alias SSS108) was banned indefinitely from Wikipedia after transgressing against one of the administrators who had warned him. The official report relates that he was voted against unanimously by the six arbitrators in the case. See the Wikipedia file Requests for arbitration/Sathya Sai Baba 2. The vote meant that he was banned from editing the Sathya Sai Baba entry and related articles or talk pages.Two of his colleagues (named elsewhere as Lisa de Witt and Simon Brace) were also banned in this manner”.

Public Petition On Sathya Sai Baba (1)

There is a Public Petition calling for official probing of Sai Baba and his Sathya Sai Organization. (See website details at the end of this post).

The JUST (Just Seekers of Truth) petition is presented by a globally networked group of former followers of Sathya Sai Baba. In the ranks of both devotees and dissenters, there are those who say that Sai Baba is history’s most powerful guru. Some critics regard him as one of history’s arch deceivers – highly charismatic, highly flawed. He may brilliantly inspire good social uplift works, which is why so many earnest and good people are attracted to him, but profoundly conceals, along with his core servitors who keep an vice-like grip on his global organization, what is morally loathsome and criminal.
