'JOE' MORENO'S CHAMELEON AND DECEPTIVE WEBSITES
The amount of errors, inaccuracies, absurdities, mistaken viewpoints, slanders, lies and other redundant waste matter of the ever-expanding websites of Gerald 'Joe' Moreno cause him constantly to modify and delete pages whenever he no longer wishes it known what he has written. Among some of the many dozens of such pages, his original FAQ page (see below) contains strange statements about himself, his viewpoint and so forth. However, these can be seen to have become a heavy liability to him, so he changed and deleted to try to limit his self-damage. As one may see below, Moreno had the audacity to pretend that he is "the only type of person who can present a balanced view into the Sathya Sai Baba debate"! Yet since he began, Joe Moreno has presented a TOTALLY one-sided view - constantly arguing on every most unlikely and irrelevant point to discredit ALL criticism of Sai Baba. That he claims to have had "many positive, powerful, spiritual experiences with SSB" need not have stopped him reaching a balanced view, as it did not with many other much closer and long-term devotees who left Sai Baba in disgust, but a look at any page or any posting written by him will confirm that he is totally and fanatically one-sided (excepting his belief that Sai Baba is a sexual abuser, see below!).
So this is plain and simple self-deception and bunkum. Yet Moreno claims - beyond all credibility - that he would not go "to the extent of making excuses for SSB (as devotees generally do)"! For he defends Sai Baba as a sexual abuser to the last straw! He makes NOTHING BUT excuses for SSB and his devotees and he NEVER utters a word of criticism of him or any of them we can find in his many hundreds of pages of contorted arguments and studied irrelevancies! This demonstrates where Joe really is at, though no one can quite figure what kind of delusive disorder he labours under.
Despite his boast, he has not successfully refuted ONE SINGLE FACT put forward about Sai Baba and his movement by the main exposé activists (eg. on this website, on ExBaba.com or Saiguru.net to name the main current sites). His main form of attack is the argumentum ad hominem, including defamatory dirt-digging, and demonstably false and vicious libels one can find on the internet, all backed by some of the most obvious attempts at avoidance of the issue, pettifogging irrelevancy and stubborn impertinence. May those who have the misfortune to come across his materials judge for themselves whether he is fair, balanced or presents any case-relevant facts or sound documentation on real issues.
JOE MORENO'S FUTILE FAQ (IN PART) AS IT ORIGINALLY WAS at visvarupa.com:-
Why is Gerald Moreno unable to contact most of the alleged sexual abuse victims? Firstly, he has disqualified himself from their trust by trying unfairly to discredit and slander many of them - some in most vile terms (eg. Said Khoramshhagol). Moreno sets out to defame in puerile ways many of those who defend the victims of Sai Baba's acts and deceptions, (see his blog defaming Sanjay Dadlani) and slanders and/or calculated lies about Reinier van der Sandt, Barry Pittard, Robert Priddy, Dave Lyons, Alexandra Nagel, and others, including all of us who have posted on this website. Moreno's main way of forwarding his alleged "balanced view" is to defame his opponents and ignore every point which he is unable to twist and misrepresent.
Secondly he has shown such antipathy and total lack of sensitivity towards alleging victims of sexual abuse. He tries to undermine every account made frankly and bravely by persons - even under threats to their lives. No one who realises who and what Gerald Moreno is truly like would have anything to do with him. He has harassed two young Swedish men who were molested by Sai Baba, posting their e-mails without permission - and trying his worst to discredit them.
Moreno's complaints against the Rahms, which he has spread out through numerous web pages, bulletin boards, and e-mails have been answered most graciously by Al Rahm. Yet Moreno goes on libelling Alaya Rahm, whose accounts the BBC investigated and defended against legal interference by Dr. M. Goldstein of the Sai Organisation. One may wonder why Moreno is so terribly engaged in this issue. Evidently he is struggling to believe that he was not himself sexually groomed by Sai Baba when his pants were taken down had oil was applied (allegedly only) to his "lower stomach". This is a typical avoidance by some involved of stating precisely where the oil was actually applied. It is also of some note that Moreno states he was a devotee of Sai Baba for 8 years, but ceased to be so. Why he defected after such "positive, powerful spiritual experiences" as he claims, he has refused to explain. Yet Joe's agenda is 100% clear, to deny and defy all facts according to his overwhelming obsession - to defend Sai Baba religiously at the cost of both the truth and normal human decency.
The 'genital switch' variously reported
by several sexually molested ex-devotees of Sai Baba makes no different
to the functionality of a penis. Hermaphrodites can have a fully functional
penis, in addition to a vaginal opening. This is exactly what hermaphroditism
consists in! Like this, Moreno is always trying to prove a point and
shows he doesn't understand properly what he is talking about.
