‘Howlers’ Robert Priddy Claims 2002 Interview Was Given In 2010

Senile Robert Priddy (a caustic critic and defamer of Sathya Sai Baba who once hailed the Guru as God Incarnate) recently wrote an article for his Anti-Baba blog entitled “Interview With Sathya Sai Baba 2010”.

The only wee problem with Robert Priddy’s hysterical and pathetic article is that the interview he claimed to have occurred in 2010 actually happened in 2002, or eight years ago! As a matter of fact, Robert Priddy’s screencap (yes, the one he made himself) showed the 2002 date in it. Furthermore, Robert Priddy was attempting to expose “new howlers” against Sathya Sai Baba. How ironic! Let us take a look at Robert Priddy’s senility in action:

Senile Robert Priddy Can't Read Either

Robert Priddy: “Once again Sathya Sai Baba has given an interview, this time to Russian ladies. It is mostly the same in content as thousands of interviews, the same words to the same questions. The same superficial and flawed answers, but this time introducing a couple of new howlers of the kind only Sai Baba can manage in all seriousness. Why the website saibabaofindia.com posts such rubbish would be a mystery, but evidently those responsible do not realise the absurdity:”

And now for an epiphany…Yes, once again Robert Priddy tried to dupe his readers with disinformation…The same superficial and flawed disinformation, but this time introducing a couple of new howlers of the kind only Robert Priddy can manage in all seriousness. Why Robert Priddy posts such rubbish would be a mystery, but evidently he does not realise the absurdity!

Welcome to Robert Priddy’s looney-tune world. If you look on the right-side menu, you’ll notice a blurb under Robert Priddy’s picture that says in part:

Robert Priddy: “I was 73 last September, am healthy and with unimpaired mind and memory…”

“Unimpaired mind and memory”? Apparently, Robert Priddy doesn’t realize the absurdity of that comment either.

Now, let us take a look at a screencap from the original saibabaofindia.com article. Notice the unmistakable date (given twice, one in bold & large font) as “25.06.2002” (June 25th 2002).

Very Clear 2002 Date

Very Clear 2002 Date

One will also notice that Robert Priddy’s alleged screencap of the saibabaofindia.com domain is not how their page looks like. This is not surprising considering Robert Priddy’s brazen acts of screencap fraud, which now seems to be extending to other websites as well.

Attention Robert Priddy: Step away from the computer and seek medical and psychiatric help for your problems, as they seem many. Also, Gerald Moreno suggests you buy a mirror if you really want something to “howl” at.

Deepwater Horizon BP Oil Spill Disaster In The Gulf Of Mexico

It has been extremely saddening to watch the news regarding the BP Oil Spill that is now claiming so much marine life. It’s emotionally devastating to watch the dolphins swimming near the shoreline, sticking their heads out of the water helplessly. So many dolphins, turtles, birds and fish have died due to this oil spill and I find it so very, very sad.

Here is a dolphin background I made. Click thumbnail to enlarge:

A Prayer Of Light For Our Marine Friends


The Deepwater Horizon oil spill (also referred to as the BP oil spill, the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, the BP oil disaster or the Macondo blowout) is a massive ongoing oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico that is now considered the largest offshore spill in U.S. history. Some estimates placed it by late May or early June, 2010, as among the largest oil spills in the world with tens of millions of gallons spilled to date. The spill stems from a sea floor oil gusher that resulted from the April 20, 2010 Deepwater Horizon drilling rig explosion. The explosion killed 11 platform workers and injured 17 others.

The gusher, now estimated by the quasi-official Flow Rate Technical Group to be flowing at 35,000 to 60,000 barrels (1,500,000 to 2,500,000 US gallons; 5,600 to 9,500 cubic metres) of crude oil per day, originates from a deepwater wellhead 5,000 feet (1,500 m) below the ocean surface. The exact spill flow rate is uncertain due to the difficulty of installing measurement devices at that depth and is a matter of ongoing debate. The resulting oil slick covers a surface area of at least 2,500 square miles (6,500 km2), with the exact size and location of the slick fluctuating from day to day depending on weather conditions. Scientists have also reported immense underwater plumes of oil not visible at the surface.

Experts fear that the spill will result in an environmental disaster, with extensive impact already on marine and wildlife habitats. The spill has also damaged the Gulf of Mexico fishing and tourism industries. There have been a variety of ongoing efforts to stem the flow of oil at the wellhead. Crews have been working to protect hundreds of miles of beaches, wetlands and estuaries along the northern Gulf coast, using skimmer ships, floating containment booms, anchored barriers, and sand-filled barricades along shorelines. The U.S. Government has named BP as the responsible party in the incident, and officials have said the company will be held accountable for all cleanup costs resulting from the oil spill.

Like Your Sardines Packed In Oil

Like Your Sardines Packed In Oil?

We send our prayers to those affected by the BP Oil Spill disaster: To the people, to the wildlife and to the marine life.

Robert Priddy Dared Not Sue Leo Rebello

It is an irrefutable fact that Sathya Sai Baba and the Sai Organisation refuse to be dragged into Ex-Devotee’s gutter of hate, lies, smears, defamations and libels.

Despite years of unrelenting attacks by Barry Pittard, Robert Priddy. Timothy Conway, Serguei Badaev, Brian Steel, Andries Krugers Dagneaux, Al & Marisa Rahm, Tony O’Clery, Psychic Trance Medium Conny Larsson, etc., Sathya Sai Baba and the Sai Organisation have never (ever) been officially charged with any crime and not even one alleged “victim” has filed a basic police complaint, public grievance or court case against Sathya Sai Baba in India (the only place where courts would have jurisdiction over the Guru as an individual defendant). This is an irrefutable statement of fact and critics of Sathya Sai Baba cannot cite any credible or legal references to support their attacks, rumors, gossips and conspiracy theories.

The only legal case filed against Sathya Sai Baba was by Alaya Rahm (the ‘Secret Swami’ superstar), who actually filed bogus suits against the wrong defendants in the wrong country (the suits were filed in the USA and not in India)! Alaya Rahm’s legal cases were all self-dismissed before they ever went to trial. See:

Brian Steel Wrote About Internet Attacks Against Sathya Sai Baba

It is interesting to note that when Brian Steel was a Sai Devotee (he is currently an Ex-Devotee), he wrote about internet attacks in his book “The Powers of Sathya Sai Baba”, Mornington, 1998. This book attempted to categorize the profuse and diverse miracles of Sathya Sai Baba that occur on a global scale. Brian Steel claimed that vibuthi manifested on his picture of Sathya Sai Baba and claimed the guru miraculously saved him from drowning. However, let us take a closer look at Brian Steel’s actual words regarding the internet attacks against Sathya Sai Baba:

Brian Steel: “The Internet allows both (or more!) sides of a topic to be examined. Nevertheless, it is wise to remember that because of freedom of access to anyone with a computer and a modem, the Web is also accessible to people with negative intentions and even to raving lunatics. Literally anyone may have his or her say. (page 158)

Naturally, the Web is also open to critics and detractors. The Indian Skeptics have their own Website and they are supported by other groups and individuals abroad with similiar aims, notably in Canada and Germany. Other groups of skeptics have Web Sites too. But Baba has a white knight on the Worldwide Web to defend Him. The well-known and indefatigable American Sai Baba devotee, Bon Giovanni, who has built up a large and important Website, makes much Baba information and opinion available and provides mnay links with overseas Sai Websites, and even a link to sites critical of Sai Baba(like the Indian Skeptics), which must surely impress even those dour individuals! The inquisitive Web surfer can even find a link on Bon’s Web Pages to an internet book by a Canadian skeptic. The book attempts to show that Sai Baba is neither omniscient or omnipotent. Fortunately, and to his enormous credit, Bon Giovanni actually debates on the ‘Net’ with such critics of Sai Baba. (page 159)

Since Baba does not usually respond to criticism of any kind, there is no fear of a libel suit and so journalists may proceed more or less with impunity to try to sow doubts on Baba’s actions and motives. (pages 150-151)”

Even Brian Steel was aware of the fact that since Sathya Sai Baba rarely responds to criticisms of any kind, people feel free to libel him because they have no fear of legal suits.

Robert Priddy’s Double Standards & Deceit Come Back To Bite Him

Robert Priddy wrote an article entitled “Sathya Sai Baba dared not sue Daily People newspaper”, in which he poorly attempted to make the argument that because the Sai Organisation did not sue the Daily People newspaper for “libel” that the stories they published must somehow be true.

On the internet, Leo Rebello has publicly claimed that Robert Priddy has AIDS, is a homosexual, is a schizophrenic and had sex with his former guru (Refs: 0102). Robert Priddy has never attempted to sue Leo Rebello for “libel”, so what must we infer from Robert Priddy’s inaction? That Leo Rebello’s accusations are true? Using the very same standards that Robert Priddy used against Sathya Sai Baba, the answer is “yes”! Robert Priddy “dared not sue” Leo Rebello for “libel” and Priddy’s inaction strongly implies that Rebello’s accusations have merit to them.

Thank you Mr. Priddles for setting the standard and implicating yourself in the process!

Ex-Devotee’s employ a entire slew of double standards and reprehensible tactics against Sathya Sai Baba, the Sai Organization, Sai Devotees and Pro-Sai Activists. However, if one were to turn the tables on Ex-Devotee’s they would be implicated in the very same reprehensible behaviors they attribute to others.

Robert Priddy is being dealt with now and as one can see, dealing with him requires no huge effort. It is obvious that Robert Priddy must sense the irremediable inferiority of his arguments and that is why he is so frenzied to create an untrue and injurious impression of those who disagree with his hate-based agendas. Perhaps the most disturbing part to Robert Priddy’s harangues is his astonishing ability to tell pathological lies with a straight face, without even cracking a smile or suppressing a giggle. Robert Priddy has trained himself well in the art of rhetoric and he has apparently amazed and dazed some people with his nostril-flaring ability. Moreno remains unimpressed.

Robert Priddy – The Con Artist:

Needless to say, Robert Priddy has a long and established history of distortions, lies, defamations and libels.

Of course, none of these things are surprising considering that Robert Priddy is an LSD Advocate who is thoroughly obsessed with genital oilings and who relishes projecting his homoerotic fantasies onto Moreno. Robert Priddy is allied with Bisexual & Psychic Trance Medium Conny Larsson and Child Porn Purveyor RFJ Sandt and Perverted Fetishist Sanjay Dadlani. Robert Priddy is also a staunch promoter of New Age Advocate & Reincarnator Alan Kazlev and Guru & UFO Promoter Timothy Conway (who actually believes that Sathya Sai Baba may have molested alleged victims like aliens are alleged to do through abductions!).

The only people guilty of running “massive disinformation and cover-up campaigns” are Robert Priddy and Ex-Devotees who have attacked hundreds of Sai Devotees & Non-Devotees alike and who have created hundreds of webpages to defame, libel and smear Gerald Joe Moreno. What more can one do but laugh at loud at Robert Priddy and his hypocritical finger-pointing?

Vishal Arora & Tehmina Arora – Christian Bias Against Hindus

Vishal Arora (Picture Link) is an independent & freelance journalist and writer living in New Delhi, India. Vishal Arora’s articles have appeared in Hindustan Times, The Indian Express, The Deccan Herald, The Tribune, The Statesman, Mint, Indo-Asian News Service, Sify.com, Swagat, The Caravan, Compass Direct News, Religion News Service, World Politics Review, Lipido Media and Religious Watch. Vishal Arora has presented papers on the mixing of religion and politics in seminars organised by the Oxford Centre for Religion and Public Life in Washington DC (which focused on the dangers of “Hindu Nationalists”, “Hindu Extremists” and “Right Wing Hindus”). Vishal Arora writes on socio-political affairs and human rights for national and foreign media with an almost exclusive focus on incidents of communal violence in India against the Christian minority. On the internet and on Vishal Arora’s official domain (vishalarora.co.in), his religious affiliation is not openly divulged (although some of his writings talk about God in a seemingly non-denominational way: 0102030405). It is suspected that Vishal Arora’s religious affiliation is purposely suppressed and cleverly cloaked to avert accusations of Christian bias.

Vishal Arora Contacted Gerald Moreno About The Sai Controversy

On May 11th 2010, Gerald Moreno received the following email from Vishal Arora:

Vishal Arora: “Dear Mr. Gerald Moreno,

I am a journalist based in New Delhi, India. I am writing an article on Sathya Sai Baba, which includes the accusations by numerous ex-devotees. Most of those who made the allegations have told me that you have been the most active person to ‘spread hate’ against them. So, I wanted to give you a fair chance to respond to this. Can I also know how are you related to Sathya Sai Baba? Are you a devotee?

Also, I’d appreciate if you could say, in a few lines, why so many ex-devotees made the allegations?

Thanks and regards,
Vishal Arora ”

Gerald Moreno responded the same day (May 11th 2010) and his full response can be found on the Vishal Arora Correspondence Page. Vishal Arora adamantly refused to answer any and all questions posed to him by Gerald Moreno. This type of one-way and secretive behavior is not what one would expect from a credible journalist or writer. Apparently, Vishal Arora has much to hide and is not interested in maintaining an open, sincere and two-way dialogue with Gerald Moreno, whom he intends to write about. The reasons for Visha Arora’s secrecy have since come to light and may be disturbing to some.

Vishal Arora – Christian Bias Uncovered

Before Moreno received Vishal Arora’s email, Moreno contacted Lisa DeWitt about Robert Priddy’s 16-day absence from his blog (which was highly unusual considering Robert Priddy’s rabid blog postings on almost a daily basis). The very same day that Vishal Arora emailed Moreno (May 11th 2010) was the very same day that Robert Priddy resumed posting on his blog. Coincidence?

Moreno felt that since Vishal Arora implied he had talked extensively to ex-devotees and simply asked for a “few lines” from him, something did not feel “right”, so he decided to research Vishal Arora. It was quickly discovered that Vishal Arora’s official domain (vishalarora.co.in) was purchased and registered for him by NOBTS (New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary)

What is “NOBTS (New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary)”?

New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary

Our Mission Statement
The mission of New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary is to equip leaders to fulfill the Great Commission and the Great Commandments through the local church and its ministries.

Our Seminary Target
Our target as a Seminary is healthy churches. We measure the effectiveness of our Seminary by the health of the churches that our graduates lead.

Our Core Values
Doctrinal Integrity — Believing that the Bible is the Word of God, we believe it, teach it, proclaim it, and submit our lives to it. Our confessional commitments are outlined in the Articles of Religious Belief and the Baptist Faith and Message 2000.

Spiritual Vitality — We are a worshiping community emphasizing both personal spirituality and gathering together as a Seminary family for the praise and adoration of God and instruction in His Word.<

Characteristic Excellence — We want everything we do to be characterized by offering the utmost of our abilities and resources as a testimony to the glory of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Servant Leadership — We follow the model of Jesus to exert leadership through nurturing and encouraging those around us.

Our Denominational Affiliation
New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary is an entity of the Southern Baptist Convention. The Seminary would not be financially viable apart from significant funding by the SBC Cooperative Program. The Charter of New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary assigns ownership of the Seminary assets to the Southern Baptist Convention, requires that all NOBTS Trustees be elected by the Southern Baptist Convention, and declares that the Charter “may not be altered, amended, or repealed without the expressed prior consent of the Southern Baptist Convention.”

Our Heritage
New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary was founded in 1917 by an act of the Southern Baptist Convention at their annual meeting that year in New Orleans. Originally named “Baptist Bible Institute,” New Orleans Seminary was the first theological institution to be created by direct action of the Southern Baptist Convention. It was originally created as an undergraduate institution modeled after Moody Bible Institute. Gradually, the school began to move toward graduate level training, and in 1946 the Convention renamed the institution “New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary.”

The school was the fulfillment of a century-old dream of Baptists to establish a missionary training school in New Orleans as a gateway to Latin America, and as a mission center in the ungodly city of New Orleans. In 1914, P. I. Lipsey, editor of the Mississippi Baptist Record, wrote an impassioned editorial favoring the creation of a theological school in New Orleans: “A seminary (in New Orleans) would plant the Baptist cause in this city in a way that would immediately command the attention and the respect of all. It would be planting the siege guns at the enemies’ gates.”

Baptist Bible Institute opened its first session in October 1918 under the leadership of Byron H. DeMent, who served as president of the BBI from 1917 to 1928. “The Baptist Bible Institute is preeminently a child of providence and prayer,” DeMent said at his inauguration. Since that day, New Orleans Seminary has been known as “The School of Providence and Prayer.”

Others who have served as president of the school are William W. Hamilton Sr. (1928-42); Duke K. McCall (1943-46); Roland Q. Leavell (1946-58); H. Leo Eddleman (1959-70); Grady C. Cothen (1970-74); and Landrum P. Leavell II, nephew of Roland Leavell, (1974-95). On February 23, 1996, Dr. Charles S. “Chuck” Kelley, Jr., of Beaumont, Texas, was elected unanimously as the seminary’s eighth president. Prior to his election he had served at the seminary for 13 years as the Roland Q. Leavell Professor of Evangelism and most recently as the director of the Seminary’s Leavell Center for Evangelism and Church Health.

From its beginning until 1953, the school was located at 1220 Washington Avenue, in the heart of the Garden District of residential New Orleans. The current campus, at 3939 Gentilly Boulevard was purchased in 1947. The landmark entrance gates and fence from the Garden District mansion now are located on the front block of the Gentilly campus. The current property, once a 75-acre pecan orchard, has been transformed into a beautiful campus with more than 100 buildings. More than 20,000 men and women have prepared for ministry at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary.

Our Doctrinal Commitments
All the faculty members of New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary subscribe to the school’ historic confession, the Articles of Religious Belief, and the Baptist Faith and Message 2000. Our President has signed on behalf of the Seminary a pledge to doctrinal faithfulness entitled “One Faith, One Task, One Sacred Trust: A Covenant Between Our Churches and Seminaries.” And the faculty also recently joined the other Southern Baptist seminary faculties in endorsing “What God Has Joined Together: A Resolution in Defense of Marriage”.

(Reference)

Needless to say, a Baptist Theological Seminary would never purchase and register a domain for someone who was not strongly allied with them, their beliefs, their practices and their missionary objectives. The Southern Baptist Convention is one of the most conservative, evangelical and fundamentalist Christian Churches in the USA and also has the largest number of Christian missionaries (more so than all other USA Christian Churches combined). The Baptist Center for Theology & Ministry’s Faith & Message Statement and NOBTS Articles of Religious Belief are of particular interest. The Southern Baptist Convention believes:

“It is the duty and privilege of every follower of Christ and of every church of the Lord Jesus Christ to endeavor to make disciples of all nations. The new birth of man’s spirit by God’s Holy Spirit means the birth of love for others. Missionary effort on the part of all rests thus upon a spiritual necessity of the regenerate life, and is expressly and repeatedly commanded in the teachings of Christ. The Lord Jesus Christ has commanded the preaching of the gospel to all nations. It is the duty of every child of God to seek constantly to win the lost to Christ by verbal witness undergirded by a Christian lifestyle, and by other methods in harmony with the gospel of Christ.” (Reference)

Moreno emailed Vishal Arora on May 11th 2010 about this information and said:

Gerald Moreno: “Dear Vishal Arora,

It is my sincere hope that when you write your article about Sathya Sai Baba that you will divulge any association you may have with NOBTS (New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary), which registered your official domain http://vishalarora.co.in/. The About NOBTS page is of particular interest.

When you are attempting to write about a spiritual teacher who has a large Hindu following in India, I think this information is highly relevant and necessary. Needless to say, I have written extensively about various Christian movements against Sathya Sai Baba and your Pro-Christian writings, your friendships with various Christians and your association with an evangelical Christian ministry raises several red flags.

I must also say I am very concerned about what appears to be an extensive communication between you and ex-devotees and how you wanted me to summarize my views in a ‘few lines’ (which is what prompted me to research your associations more closely).

Therefore, I kindly ask that you maintain transparency in your writings pertaining to Sathya Sai Baba so that you will not be accused of bias or having ulterior motives like Vir Sanghvi, Paul Lewis, Tanya Datta, Michelle Goldberg and NineMSN A Current Affair.

If you decide to withhold your association with NOBTS and if I feel that your article does not give due justice to both sides of the Sai Controversy, I will be forced to write about this issue and make it public.

I sincerely hope there is less to this finding than I think there is. You are free to enlighten me.

Sincerely,

Gerald Moreno”

Vishal Arora responded on May 12th 2010 and said (in part):

Vishal Arora: “There is no need for me to hide that I am a convert to Christianity, but I respect all religions and their followers. My brother studied at the NOBTS a few years ago when I registered my domain…

Thank you and regards,

Vishal Arora”

Vishal Arora’s brother is Vivek Arora (Profile Subsequently DeletedSee Screencap). Vivek Arora pursued his PhD at NOBTS (New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary) from 2004 – 2009 and is a Research Associate for the Center for New Testament Textual Studies (which is also associated with NOBTS). Furthermore, the North American Mission Board (NAMB) said the following about Vivek Arora (Picture Link):

NAMB: “As a young man living in India, Vivek Arora had a dream that he would someday find a book that would answer all his questions and that he would be instrumental in bringing people together in a way that would let them live in harmony. He discovered that book years later when he came to faith in Christ while reading a Hindi translation of the Bible. As for people living in harmony, he believes the Great Commission is God’s plan for that. Today, Vivek and his wife, Manisha, are church planting missionaries in Boston, reaching out to the international community that has gathered from around the world in one of America’s great cities. ‘We are reaching out to international students and professionals,’ Vivek says. ‘Many come here from their countries for two or three years. If we can reach them for Christ the impact will be greatly multiplied when they return to their home countries.’” (Reference)

NAMB’s statement of faith can be found HERE. NAMB’s views on Biblical Inerrancy can be found HERE.

However, it is irrelevant if Vivek Arora studied at NOBTS (the only relevance being a conservative, fundamentalist and evangelical Christian faith among members of the Arora family). NOBTS did not purchase and register a domain for Vivek Arora. NOBTS purchased and registered a domain for Vishal Arora. A Baptist Theological Seminary would never purchase and register a domain for someone who was not strongly allied with them, their beliefs, their practices and their missionary objectives. The fact that NOBTS purchased and registered Vishal Arora’s official domain strongly suggests he is allied with them and is possibly funded by them as well.

Considerable research was conducted into domains purchased by NOBTS and not even one other domain was found to be registered by NOBTS for any single individual besides Vishal Arora. Considering NOBTS Statement of Faith (that states there is no salvation apart from personal faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and that the unrighteous will be consigned to Hell, a place of everlasting punishment) and considering Vishal Arora’s ties with this conservative, fundamentalist and evangelical Christian organization, it is very difficult to accept Vishal Arora’s Christian faith along with his comments about respecting all religions and their followers. It is also very disturbing that Vishal Arora, as a Christian convert, would be writing about Sathya Sai Baba (a revered spiritual teacher who happens to have a large Hindu following in India and a large multi-faith following world-wide).

Although Vishal Arora does not write “Anti-Hindu” articles per se, he does write extensively about communal violence in India against the Christian minority that tends to demonize “Hindu Nationalists”, “Hindu Extremists” and “Right-Wing Hindus” (which are subjective descriptions often used on the internet to formulate “Christian vs Hindu” arguments). Vishal Arora has argued extensively against “Hindu Nationalists”, “Hindu Extremists”, “Right-Wing Hindus” and anyone he believes may be associated with them (which happens to include various gurus and spiritual teachers in India with large Hindu followings). In an article entitled “Religion and Politics in India”, Vishal Arora wrote:

Vishal Arora: “Religious leaders have enormous followings and acceptability in India. Not only the people, but also the politicians seek their ‘blessings’. There are many Hindu gurus who are known for their overt support to the BJP’s Hindu nationalist agenda. These gurus include Sadhvi Ritambhara, Morari Bapu, Asaram Bapu, Vasudevanand Saraswati, and Swami Satyamitranand Giri.

In July 2008, high-profile spiritual gurus, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar and Swami Ramdev, were the special guests at the launch of the Hindi version of BJP leader Advani’s autobiography, ‘My Country My Life’, in Bhopal, the capital of Madhya Pradesh state. The gurus reportedly praised Advani in their address.” (Reference)

Consequently, it is not surprising that Vishal Arora, as a Christian convert, is taking aim at popular gurus and spiritual teachers in India (who have large Hindu followings) and is attempting to associate them with “Hindu Nationalists”, “Hindu Extremists” and “Right Wing Hindus”. It is an irrefutable fact that Vishal Arora’s writings are published on numerous conservative, fundamentalist and evangelical Christian websites & blogs that are used to polarize Christians against Hindus. For example, Vishal Arora’s articles have been published on:

  • Among numerous others (even more so in association with Tehmina Arora)

Vishal Arora only writes one-way articles about alleged Christian persecution in India that systematically demonizes “Hindu Nationalists”, “Hindu Extremists” and “Right Wing Hindus”. Needless to say, there is another side to the Christian persecution stories. In India, one cannot travel anywhere without seeing Christian graffiti painted on boulders near main traffic routes and on the rocks on high mountains tops. The author has personally seen these things all over India. How would Christians feel if Muslims or Hindus painted their religious symbols on boulders near main traffic routes and on the rocks on high mountain tops in their predominantly Christian countries? If this happened, there would be undeniable hostility and anger against Muslims or Hindus. Yet, when Christians paint their graffiti in India (which is predominantly a Hindu country) they cry “persecution” and play “martyrs” when Hindus and Muslims get hostile and angry with them. Why should Hindus and Muslims have to endure this type of fanatic religious behavior from minority Christians in their homeland?

There have been stories of Christians throwing beef on Hindu idols (Ref), Christians killing Hindus (Refs: 01020304), a Catholic priest (who was criminally charged with sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl in Minnesota) being protected by his home diocese in India (Ref) and even fellow Christians admitting to the aggressiveness of Christian missionaries in India (Refs: 0102).

Sita Ram Goel, K. M. Panikkar, Arun Shourie, M.S. Srinivasan and Gauri Viswanathan have written extensively and intelligently about conversion tactics in India by Christian missionaries (Ref: 010203) and have sounded refuted Vishal Arora’s claim that Christianity came to India with the arrival of Apostle Thomas in Kerala in 52 AD (Ref). Christians have created an Indian Bible using Hindu imagery & Hindu scriptures and have also adopted Hindu names and outfits to trick Hindus into accepting Jesus Christ (Refs: 01020304). For example, see the Christian Yogi Bede Griffith Trust Website. Other types of inculturation and assimilation ploys include the Hindu’ization of Jesus Christ and the Hindu’ization of Christian symbols (the cross in English letters reads “Om Namah Cristaya” meaning “Om Obeisance to Jesus Christ” and “Christa Sharanam” meaning “Jesus Christ is our Refuge”).

Vishal Arora And The Oxford Centre for Religion and Public Life

As mentioned in the introduction, Vishal Arora has presented papers on the mixing of religion and politics in seminars organised by the Oxford Centre for Religion and Public Life in Washington DC (which focused on the dangers of “Hindu Nationalists”, “Hindu Extremists” and “Right Wing Hindus”). Do not let the fancy name fool you, the Oxford Centre For Religion and Public Life is a USA-based Christian organization founded by the Reverend Dr. Arne Fjeldstad (who is also the “Head of Communications” for the Anglican group GAFCON). The Oxford Centre For Religion and Public Life created the “project” domain GetReligion.org, which is owned and registered by Terry Mattingly (an Eastern Orthodox Christian who directs the Washington Journalism Center at the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities). All of the contributors for GetReligion.org are Christians (mostly Christian converts and/or Orthodox Christians). Videos of a very nervous Vishal Arora (notice the repeated blinking of his eyes and gulping movements in his throat) were created by the Oxford Centre for Religion and Public Life and published on YouTube:

Vishal Arora was filmed in Washington DC by a Christian organization where he talked against “Right Wing Hindus”. Since Vishal Arora is an independent writer from India with no known ties to any specific media organization, where exactly is Vishal Arora getting his paycheck from and who is sponsering and/or funding his expensive trips to the USA?

Vishal Arora Invokes The Swastika Against Hindu Nationalists

Vishal Arora wrote an article entitled Swastika Terrorism, which claimed “The Indian government is ignoring the surge of Hindutva terrorism at its own risk.” Why would Vishal Arora associate a known Hindu symbol with “Hindutvas” (movements advocating for Hindu nationalism)?

The word “swastika” is derived from the Sanskrit word “svastika”, meaning any lucky or auspicious object, and in particular a mark made on persons and things to denote good luck. It is composed of “su” meaning “good, well” and “asti” “to be”. Svasti thus means “well-being”.

As noted by Monier-Williams in his Sanskrit–English dictionary, according to Alexander Cunningham, the swastika represents a monogram formed by interlacing of the letters of the auspicious words su-asti (svasti) written in Ashokan characters. Archaeological evidence of swastika-shaped ornaments dates from the Neolithic period in Ancient India. The swastika occurs mainly in the modern day culture of India, sometimes as a geometrical motif and sometimes as a religious symbol. It remains widely used in Indian religions such as Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism. Though once commonly used all over much of the world without stigma, because of its iconic usage in Nazi Germany the symbol has become stigmatized in the Western world, notably even outlawed in Germany

In Christianity, the swastika was used as a hooked version of the Christian Cross, the symbol of Christ’s victory over death. Some Christian churches built in the Romanesque and Gothic eras are decorated with swastikas, carrying over earlier Roman designs. Swastikas are prominently displayed in a mosaic in the St. Sophia church of Kiev, Ukraine dating from the 12th century. Swastikas also appear as a repeating ornamental motif on a tomb in the Basilica of St. Ambrose in Milan (Reference).

Vishal Arora’s invocation of the swastika stimga is a direct attack against Hindus who have been using that religious symbol for thousands of years. Vishal Arora, as a Christian convert, would appear to be inciting hostility and hatred against Hindus to his mainly Christian readers who are not familiar with the Hindu religion and its history with the swastika. As a matter of fact, fanatic Christians often claim that Hindus are “Nazi inspired”, “Hitler inspired”, “swastika worshipping”, “Nazi terrorists” , “using Nazi tactics”, “idolators”, “satanists”, “swastika terrorists”, etc. Shame of Vishal Arora for using the Hindu swastika as a prop to stigmatize Hindu Nationalists.

(Reference)

Tehmina Arora also belong to Micah Challenge, which is described as:

“Micah Challenge is a global coalition between the World Evangelical Alliance and the Micah Network. The Micah Network brings together 330 Christian organizations providing relief, development and justice ministries throughout the world. The WEA embraces 420 million evangelical Christians in 127 countries.” (Reference)

The Micah Challenge website provided the following information about Tehmina Arora:

“Tehmina is the General Secretary of the Christian Legal Association, India. She has written over 30 articles on human rights issues, published in leading national dailies and magazines. Tehmina is frequently called upon to address groups at seminars across the country on the rights of religious minorities in India. She worked briefly at the Supreme Court of India as an advocate before joining the Christian Legal Association.” (Reference)

Micah Challenge is facilitated by the World Evangelical Alliance (WEA) and the Micah Network. The Council for Micah Challenge has ten members drawn from the leadership of Evangelical Alliances and Christian relief and development agencies from around the world. The chair is Rev Joel Edwards, General Director of Evangelical Alliance UK. The other Board Members are: Tehmina Arora (India), Andy Atkins (UK), Steve Bradbury (Australia), Loida Cariel (Peru), Jane Furniss (Micah Network), Paul Mususu (Zambia), Geoff Tunnicliffe (WEA) and Peter Vander Meulen (USA). Ken Morgan serves as the ex-officio treasurer of the Board.

Tehmina Arora also has a long-time family history involvement with the Lalbagh Methodist Church in India. According to Kuruvilla Chandy (an Indian Pastor), Tehmina Arora and her Grand-Parents worshipped at the Lalbagh Methodist Church:

“Dr B Jeyaraj and I were room mates at seminary. He was my junior then. Today he is a professor in Old Testament studies. Tehmina Arora is the grand daughter of a couple who worshipped at the Lalbagh Methodist Church when I was pastor there. She has visited and worshipped at Lalbagh during my time. She is now in charge of the legal department of the Evangelical Fellowship of India. Both Jeyaraj and Tehmina were at the conference in Bangalore” (Text ReferencePicture Reference)

This might explain why Vishal Arora made no mention to Tehmina Arora on his official domain. To Date: Neither Vishal Arora or Tehmina Arora have publicly divulged their husband/wife relationship (the FaceBook association where their relationship was discovered is private and can only be seen by members: See: Vishal Arora on FaceBookTehmina Arora on FaceBook).

Vishal Arora – In Conclusion

Vishal Arora has gone to great extents to package and present himself and his writings as unbiased and neutral. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Vishal Arora is a Christian convert, his wife and brother are conservative, fundamentalist and evangelical Christians and his official domain (vishalarora.co.in) was purchased and registered for him by the USA conservative, fundamentalist and evangelical Christian group NOBTS (New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary), which believes:

“It is the duty and privilege of every follower of Christ and of every church of the Lord Jesus Christ to endeavor to make disciples of all nations.”“The heathen, then, are under condemnation just as well as those who hear and reject the gospel, for they are sinners by both nature and practice.”“We believe that the Christian life begins with conversion.” (Refs: 0102)

Vishal Arora is also affiliated with the Christian organization “Oxford Centre for Religion and Public Life” and the Christian news agency “Compass Direct News”. Therefore, Vishal Arora’s writings and views about “Hindu Nationalists”, “Hindu Extremists” and “Right Wing Hindus” are biased, self-serving and written with ulterior motives. Vishal Arora and Tehmina Arora have a Christian agenda that specifically targets “Right-Wing Hindus” (which can actually refer to any Hindu who does not denounce Hinduism and accept Christianity) and anyone they perceive as having affiliations with “Right-Wing Hindus”.

Vishal Arora, Tehmina Arora, Vivek Arora and NOBTS are “Right-Wing Christians” who feel it is their religious duty and moral imperative to convert Hindus to their Christian faith. So when Vishal Arora “innocently” takes aim at popular gurus and spiritual teachers in India (who have large Hindu followings) and attempts to associate them with “Right-Wing Hindus”, make no mistake about it: Vishal Arora is on a Christian crusade for his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Robert Priddy’s ‘Pornography Submissions’ Argument Comes Back To Bite Him

On June 10th 2010, Robert Priddy (a caustic critic and defamer of Sathya Sai Baba and others) wrote yet another article against Gerald Joe Moreno repeating his accusations of “false porn site postings”. Robert Priddy’s ridiculous arguments actually implicate himself in the very same rat nest of malicious behaviors he attributes to Moreno. Moreno has already written about this issue several times before in articles entitled:

In addition to accusing Moreno of submitting Ex-Devotee’s websites to “porno-sites”, Robert Priddy even accused Moreno of submitting his own (i.e., Moreno’s) websites to “porno-sites”!

Robert Priddy said:

robertpriddy.wordpress.com/2010/06/10/gerald-morenos-false-claim-about-porn-site-postings
Robert Priddy: “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.”

kevinrdshepherd.net/html/22__wikipedia___moreno__google.html
Kevin R. D. Shepherd: “The quoted letter of Priddy (dated Jan. 2007) included the statement: ‘Moreno uses dirty tricks, like posting names of his opponents on porno sites, then publicising it; someone has posted my website URL on a porno site (at some expense).’”

Robert Priddy linked to the following page that claimed:

saibabaexpose.com/GeraldMoreno.html
“NB! HERE ARE MORE GOOGLE LISTINGS WHERE MORENO HAS ARRANGED FOR SANJAY’S DADLANI’S NAME TO APPEAR ON NUMEROUS DISGUSTING PORN SITES! Moreno conceals his identity here as elsewhere. But it is unquestionably Moreno at work here since he has previously done the same against Reinier van der Sandt. In case anyone doubts that Moreno stoops to making the above entries by registering on the porn sites – consider these images he made on his blog, sanjaydadlaniexposed.com (on the right…..”

Since Robert Priddy has falsely and fraudulently accused Gerald Moreno of submitting Ex-Devotee’s and his websites to pornography domains, then Robert Priddy should be able to substantiate his accusations against Moreno with factual and verifiable information. Since Robert Priddy contrasts himself as a moral, honest and credible person, then surely Robert Pridy must possess credible and verifiable documentation and references to support his allegations against Moreno.

To Date: Robert Priddy has not provided a scintilla of credible and verifiable documentation and references to support his claims that Moreno submitted Ex-Devotee’s and his website links to “pornography websites”. Therefore:

Gerald Moreno: “Robert Priddy 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 did post anything on any porno site. Robert Priddy 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.”

Robert Priddy’s arguments against Moreno can be mirrored back at him.

Robert Priddy Cites True Believer M. Alan Kazlev

It is 100% true that Robert Priddy’s primary Anti-Sai webpage was indexed on porn sites because Priddy paid to get his Anti-Sai Site listed on SeekInsider.com (which is a no longer existent, pay-per-click Search Engine) under the Category: “World Wide Sex Com – World Wide Sex Directory – World Wide Sex” (View Google Cache)! Guess Robert Priddy did not have the foresight to see that by listing his website on a World Wide Sex Directory, porn sites would index his site for content! Of course, none of this is surprising considering that Robert Priddy is an LSD Advocate who is thoroughly obsessed with genital oilings and relishes projecting his homoerotic fantasies onto Moreno.

SeekInsider.com was not a “pornography website” and Moreno never (ever) claimed it was. Attempting to bolster the absurd argument that Moreno claimed seekinsider.com was a “pornography website”, Robert Priddy cited True-Believer, New Age Advocate and Reincarnator M. Alan Kazlev against Moreno and said:

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

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).

M. Alan Kazlev: “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.”

Alan Kazlev (the alleged credible and reliable reference that Robert Priddy cited against Moreno) is a true-believer, promoter and endorser of: Integral Transformation, Integral Metaphysics, Reincarnation, Spirit Possession, Trolls, UFOs, Aliens, Alternate Realities, Cosmic Redemption, Planetary Buddhas, Avataric Gurus, Psychic Powers, Devas, Earth Spirits, Elementals, the Occult, Kundalini, Astrology, Karma, Auras, Astral Bodies, Astral Planes, Astral Beings, Geomancy, Theta Magic, Natal Charts, Samskaras, various New Age philosophies, etc.

Alan Kazlev claimed that Ramana Maharshi is his “sadguru” and that Sri Aurobindo and Mother Mirra are his “gurus”. Futhermore, Alan Kazlev ranted about his past lives on his website, claiming past life associations with Ancient Rome, Atlantis and Ancient Greece. Alan Kazlev claimed he lived past lives as a Polish Kabbalist, a German Soldier and a 19th Century English gentleman-scholar, philosopher theologian and naturalist raised as a British Israelite. Alan Kazlev stated he reincarnates two to three times a century and was “exiled” to Earth (apparently from another planet) to help in the spiritual transformation of the entire Earth (Reference).

It has since come to light that Alan Kazlev is a grungy guy who loves to drool over images of a “pornographic kind” (using Robert Priddy’s moral standards) and wrote two cyberpunk articles replete with filthy speech and sexually explicit material. See:

Robert Priddy has yet to say one word about Alan Kazlev’s penchant to tell raunchy and pornographic stories about erect penises, wanton sex and obscene references to women as being “cunts”.

It is very amusing that Robert Priddy (a trasher and basher of “superstition” and “superstitious beliefs”) is citing a New Age believer as a credible, reliable, reputable and noteworthy “reference” against Gerald Joe Moreno. What does this say about Robert Priddy? Robert C. Priddy is obviously a very gullible and naive person who is willing to give credence to New Age beliefs by claiming that New Age followers are intelligent, honest, credible and reliable individuals who are worthy of being referenced by him (a self-professed “scholar” not given to superstition or superstitious beliefs)!

Alan Kazlev fully admitted (several times) that he did not have the “time”, “patience” or “inclination” to research the Sai Controversy for himself and simply “skimmed” through information Moreno sent him and relied on Anti-Baba critics to better inform him. This is not surprising after reading Alan Kazlev’s Disrespectable Me bio.

Therefore, it is not surprising that Alan Kazlev & Robert Priddy misrepresented Moreno’s words about seekinsider.com being a “pornography website”. Moreno never made that claim.

Robert Priddy Continues His Homosexual Fantasizing About Moreno

robertpriddy.wordpress.com/2010/06/10/gerald-morenos-false-claim-about-porn-site-postings
Robert Priddy: “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.”

As one can see, Homoerotic Fantasizer Robert Priddy is still claiming (like a pervert and sexual deviant psychologically obsessed with homosexual sex) that Sathya Sai Baba approached Moreno in a sexual way and that the guru “invasively oiled” Moreno on the lower stomach. 100% total and blatant untruths!

Obviously, Robert Priddy is projecting “what can only be a deep unconscious projection of his own negative ‘shadow’ personality” and latent homosexuality onto Moreno. Robert Priddy relies on his groin and on his latent homosexuality to make the argument that Moreno was “molested sexually” by Sathya Sai Baba. Robert Priddy cannot source his libels to any of Moreno’s known writings. Robert Priddy exemplifies the sleaze and slime that altogether embodies the Anti-Sai Movement.

Robert Priddy continually claims that Moreno defended Sathya Sai Baba when he believed the guru had sexually abused men. Moreno’s original arguments (all documented on his website) were not “defenses” of Sathya Sai Baba, but rather were objections to Ex-Devotee’s obvious and very disturbing smear tactics and crude behaviors (which forced Moreno to publicly question their integrity and credibility). Moreno repeatedly encouraged Ex-Devotee’s to pursue their criminal allegations against Sathya Sai Baba along legal venues. Despite these facts, Robert Priddy ceaselessly cites Moreno’s transitional research between 2004-2005 regarding the Sai Controversy and his former belief that Alaya Rahm was credible. Moreno has subsequently retracted his comments about believing the sexual abuse allegations against Sathya Sai Baba. The sole reason why Moreno formerly believed the allegations was due to what he perceived as sincere and genuine accounts made by Alaya Rahm on the internet and in the Secret Swami documentary. Moreno retracted his former views due to the following major updates:

Despite Moreno’s repeated clarifications, Robert Priddy repeats himself ad nauseam like a brainless automaton, idly parroting his rhetoric in true “broken-record” fashion. Robert Priddy’s latest diatribes are examples of his lunacy at its very finest. Every despicable word in Priddy’s diatribes paint a perfect picture of his hysteria and reveals his deeply ingrained habit to withhold information and disseminate half-truths and whole-lies.

Robert Priddy And Legal Threats

robertpriddy.wordpress.com/2010/06/10/gerald-morenos-false-claim-about-porn-site-postings
Robert Priddy: “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.”

Let us reference Robert Priddy’s claims on his Anti-Baba WordPress blog:

robertpriddy.wordpress.com/2008/06/17/outright-defenders-of-sexual-abuse-by-sathya-sai-baba
Robert Priddy: “His constant contrived spin tried to show the critics in the worst possible light, going to any length to assassinate their character in an unending array of ways that lawyers in three countries have opined as highly libellous, defamatory and actionable.”

Therefore, Robert Priddy strongly suggested (as Moreno claimed) that he and Ex-Devotees talked to lawyers (from three countries nonetheless) who “opined” that Moreno’s writings were “libelous”, “defamatory” and “actionable”. Despite getting these alleged opinions from anonymous lawyers from three countries, not even one Ex-Devotee has attempted to sue Moreno. This is probably due to the fact that Moreno would file a countersuit and Ex-Devotee’s proven defamations and libels would spell disaster and ruin for them.

Since Robert Priddy and Ex-Devotees ceaselessly claim that Moreno is “libeling” and “defaming” them and since they have already allegedly contacted lawyers from three countries who are allegedly willing to provide council to them, what is stopping Ex-Devotees from suing Moreno? Moreno’s guess is the “The Truth” is stopping them.

Robert Priddy’s Double Standards & Deceit

robertpriddy.wordpress.com/2010/06/10/gerald-morenos-false-claim-about-porn-site-postings
Robert Priddy: “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.”

It does not matter what excuses, defenses, denials or refutations Robert Priddy gave or will give, his private interviews “MUST” be viewed in the exact manner as he views Moreno’s private interview.

  • Just as Robert Priddy denies Moreno’s first-hand account, one must similarly deny Robert Priddy’s first-hand account.
  • Just as Robert Priddy ignores Moreno’s claims of not being sexually molested by Sathya Sai Baba, one must similarly ignore Robert Priddy’s claims of not being sexually molested by Sathya Sai Baba.
  • Just as Robert Priddy concludes that Moreno is “too embarrassed” to talk about being “molested sexually” by Sathya Sai Baba, one must similarly conclude that Robert Priddy is “too embarrassed” to talk about being “molested sexually” by Sathya Sai Baba.

Needless to say, Moreno does not believe that Robert Priddy was molested by Sathya Sai Baba. Rather, Moreno is attempting to show how Robert Priddy’s self-serving and irrational arguments could be mirrored back at him and would implicate him in the very same situation he tries to place Moreno.

Robert Priddy has never been able to refute or shake off similar accusations made against him by Leo Rebello. See: Leo Rebello’s $1,000,000 Legal Threat For Defamation Against Robert Priddy.

Why is it that Robert Priddy thinks he is perfectly entitled to cite Basava Premanand against Moreno but that Moreno cannot cite Leo Rebello against him? Why the double standards?

It is tiring to write such truisms, but Robert Priddy never tires of trying to extinguish fires with gasoline. He presumably hopes that magic formula will some day work. Robert Priddy and the truth are like oil and water. They don’t mix. Gerald Moreno’s output is well reasoned, fully referenced and strongly defended. Robert Priddy’s crusade is simply a mere cavil, a mere scarecrow, one of the last shifts of a desperate and feeble cause. A careful analysis of Robert Priddy’s articles reveals that his output is 2% substance and 98% twaddle and finger-pointing. No verifiable, credible or legal sources. No actual names from people who are currently alive. No nothing from know-nothing Robert Priddy!

Robert Priddy – The Con Artist:

Needless to say, Robert Priddy has a long and established history of distortions, lies, defamations and libels.

Of course, none of these things are surprising considering that Robert Priddy is an LSD Advocate who is thoroughly obsessed with genital oilings and who relishes projecting his homoerotic fantasies onto Moreno. Robert Priddy is allied with Bisexual & Psychic Trance Medium Conny Larsson and Child Porn Purveyor RFJ Sandt and Perverted Fetishist Sanjay Dadlani. Robert Priddy is also a staunch promoter of New Age Advocate & Reincarnator Alan Kazlev and Guru & UFO Promoter Timothy Conway (who actually believes that Sathya Sai Baba may have molested alleged victims like aliens are alleged to do through abductions!).

The only people guilty of running “massive disinformation and cover-up campaigns” are Robert Priddy and Ex-Devotees who have attacked hundreds of Sai Devotees & Non-Devotees alike and who have created hundreds of webpages to defame, libel and smear Gerald Joe Moreno. What more can one do but laugh at loud at Robert Priddy and his hypocritical finger-pointing?

The Bogus ‘Sai Petition’ On SaiPetition.net Against Sathya Sai Baba:

The SaiPetition.net website is an alleged online ‘petition’ that allows anyone with a negative opinion about Sathya Sai Baba to submit multiple signatures under multiple fake names.

The fraudulent Sai Petition calls for an official investigation of Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba and the Sathya Sai International Organization. The SaiPetition.net administrators falsely claimed that Sathya Sai Baba has been “charged” (when no legal charges have ever been filed against him) and made references to:

  • The Unesco Withdrawal (whose media release was removed from the Unesco website along with an official apology from Unesco expressing regret).
  • Alleged ‘Witnesses’.
  • The Alleged Hislop Letters.
  • A solicitation for Barry Pittard’s Anti-Sai conspiracy blog.
  • References to various media investigations (which Anti-Sai Activists boasted on accomplishing themselves).
  • Reference to British MP Tony Colman’s question in Parliament (from which nothing ever resulted).
  • A letter to Prime Minister Tony Blair, which he responded to and said (in part): ‘However, as I understand, FCO Ministers explained to you last year, there is little the Government can do. Those who have complaints against Sai Baba will have to take them to the Indian police. No formal charges have been brought against him.’
  • Reference to the U.S. State Department Warning, which was purposely altered, leaving out the pivotal word ‘unconfirmed’ in reference to ‘reports of inappropriate sexual behavior by a prominent local religious leader at an ashram or religious retreat located in Andhra Pradesh’. The US State Department warning was officially removed on July 17th 2007.
  • Reference to the June 6th 1993 Police Shootings. The petition administrators shamelessly lied and claimed that the four assailants (who viciously stabbed to death Sathya Sai Baba’s 2 aides and seriously injured two others) were ‘executed’ by the police while Sathya Sai Baba ‘passively stood by’. There is no proof, documentation or verifiable testimonies to support these absurd claims and bold-faced untruths.

SaiPetition.net, created by JuST and written by Arthur Klein, hosting an Online Petition against Sathya Sai Baba has pointed fingers at unnamed officials in the Sai Organization and complained that they have “failed in their moral and compassionate duty” regarding allegations of sexual impropriety leveled against Sathya Sai Baba. After boldly making this claim, SaiPetition.net miserably failed in their “moral and compassionate duty” by allowing anyone to submit multiple signatures (using multiple fake names) against Sathya Sai Baba without any sort of verification process whatsoever

What would you think if someone made sexual abuse allegations against you and created an online petition that allowed anyone to submit multiple signatures under multiple fake names? The negative and criminal allegations against you may never be traced to a real person and you must bear the stain of accusation without recourse. You would protest this outright. But SaiPetition.net thinks there is absolutely nothing wrong with this type of behavior despite their “moral” obligations and dedication to the “truth”. This is reprehensible by all standards and should be remedied immediately.

Legality, Flawed Submission Policies & Unverifiable Signatures:

On October 9th 2004, SaiPetition.net changed its flawed submission policy and finally acknowledged the issues of abuse and not using full names. In the two years the petition was online, no one had the conscience or integrity to screen submissions for abuse or failure to use full names. Although the full-name policy was started on October 9th 2004, the SaiPetition.net website is still keeping the invalid signatures (using one name, initials or a partial name) and is still accepting partial name entries.

Prior to October 9th, 2004, submissions were instantly accepted with no verification process whatsoever (very much akin to signing an online guestbook or posting a comment on a public forum). See For Yourself. After Moreno pointed out the Sai Petition’s dishonest and easily exploitable submission method, they resorted to the equally flawed method of “screening” submissions before accepting them (a process Moreno has conclusively shown does not work). Click Here to view a screen-capture with multiple, fake submissions (names: Joe Apodaca, Isaac Nivek and Kevin Iassa) that Moreno made, which were screened and accepted into the petition.

SaiPetition.net erroneously claimed that the petition signatures are "100% Legal" (a bold-faced untruth). In order for any legal petition to be legitimate, it must record verifiable information, such as:

  • A verifiable full name.
  • A verifiable address.
  • A verifiable signature.

SaiPetition.net has no way of verifying signatures as legal and valid because they do not request an address or phone number and submissions can be made using fake e-mail addresses. Moreno was able to submit multiple fake signatures using multiple fake e-mail addresses to the petition (which were screened and accepted!). How legal and valid is that? Click here to view a screen-capture with the fake names Joe Apodaca, Joe M, JM and Isaac Nivek. Moreno has challenged SaiPetition.net to verify three recently “screened” submissions by: Ronnie Bartlett, UK; Sara Friedmann, France and Henry Sanders, USA. Apparently, the Sai Petition is not able to verify these 3 signatures that they screened and approved. This is highly indicative of deceit and dishonesty.

UPDATE: July 24th 2005: Even though Moreno very clearly stated that he made a fake submission using the name “Joe Apodaca”, Robert Priddy took Moreno’s fake submission and put it on his “Ex Office Bearers” page, using it as a first-hand account against Sathya Sai Baba. Needless to say, there was no way for Priddy to contact “Joe Apodaca” (as a fake email was used) but the signature was regarded as authentic without any sort of verification and put up on his page as a legitimate signature. I think this speaks volumes for the so-called “integrity” of the petition’s “signatures”.

Information Purposely Suppressed On The Sai Petition:

The SaiPetition.net webmaster (out of his own mouth) admitted to purposely suppressing information on the bogus Sai Petition and said:

“The JuST petition working group, in consultation with a dozen of the other original signatories in the JuST group, seriously considered the status of exposé dealings with the FBI and the CBI and found that the initiatives taken towards these bodies by various exposé activists have not so far proven effective. No documentation of replies, nor any public statement concerning Sathya Sai Baba or the accusations against him, have been made available anywhere by either the FBI in the USA or the CBI in India. Mentioning this in the international petition would therefore have been counter-productively unconvincing to any serious actors and agencies in the legal and human rights field. The same applies to the High Court judgement in India, where the charges were rejected as invalid, on the grounds that they were made by a person other than any of the injured parties. Documentation of all this only proves unadvised and incorrect procedure on behalf of the injured parties, which the JuST group considered a bad advertisment for the credibility of the petition to authorities around the world.” (Ref)

Here we have a clear admission that the Sai Petition purposely withheld information from the general public due to concerns that the information would have been “counter-productively unconvincing to any serious actors and agencies in the legal and human rights field” and “documentation of all this only proves unadvised and incorrect procedure on behalf of the injured parties, which the JuST group considered a bad advertisment for the credibility of the petition to authorities around the world”. How deceptive, dishonest and crooked is that?

SaiPetition.net: Does Anyone Believe and Support Them?

JuST (Just Seekers of Truth) addressed the Sai Petition to:

“All governments, human rights institutions, all religious and spiritual leaders, NGOs, politicians and official functionaries, and the media organizations of all countries.”

Nevertheless, despite the Sai Petition being online since 2002 (and being posted on every single Anti-Sai website on the internet) no one belonging to Governments, Human Rights Institutions, Media Organizations or NGO’s have verified the signatures on the bogus Sai Petition. Despite the Sai Petition being addressed to all of these official organizations and people, there is not even one verifiable signature from any person claiming to be a Politician, an Official Functionary, a Religious Leader or a Spiritual Leader. No one is willing to back up the bogus Sai Petition by signing it.

SaiPetition.net: Altering Submissions: Dishonesty in Action:

JuST’s Sai Petition signatures are not legal despite their misleading claims that the petition signatures are legal. On SaiPetition.net, they stated:

“…and who wish the responsible persons be made accountable through proper legal process, to please sign this petition…This Petition is for the benefit of the general public and will be sent to any relevant authority that may forward the Petition…”

Online Petitions are not legal for several reasons:

  1. Signature verification is next to impossible.
  2. A single person can submit numerous signatures under numerous names and email addresses.
  3. There are no international Initiative and Referendum laws that govern online petitions.

Randi Godager and the SaiPetition.net Administrator asserted that the petition signatures are “fully and 100% legal”. This is dishonest and a lie. The fact that Moreno was able to make multiple submissions proves that signatures can easily be faked. How valid and legal is that?

However, for arguments sake, let us assume that the petition signatures are legal. If any signature was altered, such an action would be illegal, in violation of the Initiative and Referendum laws and punishable by law. SaiPetition.net alters the signatures! If you go SaiPetition.net, and look for the name “Laim Ekaf” (which spells “Fake Mail” backwards), you will see that there is only a name with no comment. However, if you click here to view the altered submission, you will see that on the original submission there was a comment in Dutch attached to it that was removed by SaiPetition.net! Not only is this inappropriate and dishonest, if this Sai Petition was legal, this would be illegal activity! This from people who demand legal recourse against Sathya Sai Baba.

Furthermore, the following signatures were altered:

  • “Jorge, Mexico signed the petition” was changed to “Jorge Reyesvera, Mexico signed the petition”.
  • “raaid, Pakistan signed the petition” was changed to “raaid iqbal, Pakistan signed the petition”.
  • “Rajkumar Subramnaian from UK” was changed to “Rajkumar Subramnaian from India.
  • “christophe bouity” was changed to “christophe boity.

Why are the signatures being altered? Why aren’t we told that submissions are being altered? Who is altering them? What else are we not being told about the petition signatures?

If you go saipetition.net (click View Signatures then click on Show First 700 Signatures, scroll to the bottom of the page and look for the 23rd signature up) you will see that Robert Priddy claimed he was devoted to Sathya Sai Baba from 1983 to 2002. Or, you can click here to view a screen capture. His wife, Reidun Priddy, was devoted to Sathya Sai Baba from 1983 to 2000 (in other words, Reidun Priddy left Sai Baba 2 years prior to Robert Priddy).

If we are to believe Robert Priddy’s signature information on SaiPetition.net (after all, Robert Priddy made the submission himself), he claimed that he was still devoted to Sathya Sai Baba in 2002. However, if you go to http://home.hetnet.nl/~ex-baba/engels/witnesses/robert.html, you will see that this article is dated March 10th, 2001. At that time Robert Priddy was no longer a devotee of Sathya Sai Baba. However, according to SaiPetition.net, Robert Priddy claimed he was a devotee in 2002. Did Robert Priddy make that submission? Or did someone else make it for him?

It is also significant to note that Alexandra Nagel (an Anti-Sai Activist) told Moreno that she had “no clue as to how it happened that on the petition it is said that I was a devotee in 2000. That simply is not true” (Ref). On SaiPeitition.net, Alexanda Nagel’s signature stated she was devoted to Sathya Sai Baba “briefly in 2000”. Where did this comment come from when Alexandra Nagel claimed she did not make it?

Signature 145 was allegedly made by “Sekharji”, who was the webmaster for the website sekharji.org. On the Sai Petition, Sekharji allegedly claimed that he visited Sathya Sai Baba in 1946 & 1949. The only problem with this claim is that Sekharji was born in 1959 (Refs: 0102). Since Sekharji disappeared from the guru scene many years ago, it appears someone submitted a fake signature using his name.

SaiPetition.net: Where Did The Signatures Come From?

On the newer petition at SaiPetition.net created in June of 2004 (the Original Petition was created in 2002), if you scroll to the bottom of the petition and work your way up, you will notice the first 758 submissions do not have dates attached to them. Only the most recent 51 posts have a date. When Moreno wrote this article, there were only 809 submissions on SaiPetition.net. Where did the 758 posts (with no dates) come from? The answer is that most of the submissions were duplicated from the Original Petition page (which has subsequently been deleted). SaiPetition.net (in an act of desperation) removed the Original Petition page in a deceitful attempt to prevent people from verifying the errors Moreno pointed out on it. Click Here to see the exact duplicate (text version) of the Original Petition, along with it’s numerous inconsistencies. Seeing is believing.

The Grim Reality: Anyone Can Submit a Fake Signature:

The grim reality is that anyone can submit multiple fake signatures to the Sai Petition. Don’t believe it? Go to the Online Sai Petition Page, use a believable fake e-mail address, a believeable fake name and a fake profile. Say anything you want to say and click “submit”. Wait a few days and see what happens (Please Note: Your comments must be negative or they will be not be accepted!).

Consequently, anyone that is Anti-Sai Baba, can submit as many fake submissions as they choose (using as many fake email addresses they can think up). As a matter of fact, Moreno did it himself. The names used were: “Joe M, JM, Joe Apodaca” for Sept. 27 and “Kevin Iassa, Isaac Nivek” for Sept. 28. As expected, SaiPetition.net deleted “Joe M” and “JM” from the petition. Click here to view these submissions that were deleted. Any group that strives for “honesty, sincerity, decency, truthfulness and accountability”, should know better than putting up a bogus Online Petition, claiming it is 100% legal, accepting signatures that cannot be verified and providing a forum that can be used and abused by dishonest people (which come a dime-a-dozen in the Anti-Sai Movement).

On the very same day Moreno contacted the Sai Petition webmaster about his concerns about the bogus Sai Petition, they closed down the Original Petition page. Their closing comment can be viewed here. The Original Petition was removed so no one could verify Moreno’s claims firsthand. However, Moreno made a full catalog of screen captures to the Original Petition. Click Here to see the exact duplicate (text version) to the Original Petition, along with it’s numerous inconsistencies.

It is baffling that these Just Seekers of Truth tell so many lies. If you view Moreno’s page about the inherent dishonesty of the Original Petition page, he enumerates five bold-faced lies told by the unnamed “Sub-Administrator” (whomever that is, as no real and verifiable name is given).

SaiPetition.net: Duplicate Posts:

To conclusively show that something suspicious and fraudulent is going on at SaiPetition.net, find the submission by “Babu Sharma”. It reads:

“Need for huge people movement or revolution against Sai Baba. A person or people can’t able to stand up and blow the whistle against Sai Baba, because Sai Baba has too much religious, social and political power. Indian state police, government, religious organization and million stupid devotees are Sai Baba’s protectors and defenders. To put Sai Baba in justice or jail, People’s movement and revolution must require. Indeed it is reality and true. People scare and keep shot their mouth rather than get kill by some stupid.”

There was another post at SaiPetition.net by “sanjeev biradar” (dated Sept. 27th, which was subsequently deleted) that read:

“Need for huge people movement or revolution against Sai Baba. A person or people can’t able to stand up and blow the whistle against Sai Baba, because Sai Baba has too much religious, social and political power. Indian state police, government, religious organization and million stupid devotees are Sai Baba’s protectors and defenders. To put Sai Baba in justice or jail, People’s movement and revolution must require. Indeed it is reality and true. People scared and keep shut their mouths rather than get killed.” (Ref)

As you can see, the posts are identical except for a few words in the last sentence. The person who made these submissions used completely different names (Babu Sharma and Sanjeev Biradar). This fully supports Moreno’s claim that people are making multiple submissions under multiple fake names on the Sai Petition.

Click Here to view multiple posts made by Reinier van de Sandt.

If this type of activity happened on a Pro-Sai Site, one can be certain that Anti-Sai Activists would be gnashing their teeth and raising a huge cry. JuST has some explaining to do. SaiPetition.net removed the post from Sanjeev Biradar only after Moreno pointed it out. They don’t even care to review the submissions before accepting them.

Furthermore, there are two posts (one from a person claiming to be “George Miles from New Zealand” and another post from a person claiming to be “Arati Rai from Nepal”) that refer to Sathya Sai Baba as the “SARS virus”. How many people do you know who refer to Sathya Sai Baba as the “SARS virus”? Is this just coincidence? Moreno doesn’t think so.

SaiPetition.net: Anti-Sathya Sai Baba Spammers?

How about Anti-Sai spammers? On Moreno’s page about the Original Petition, he discussed how many posts are, in his opinion, from the same person. As a matter of fact, there are recent posts on SaiPetition.net that have startling similarities to the posts Moreno did an analysis on. Click Here to read Moreno’s analysis of the petition signatures. This proves that something very suspicious is happening on SaiPetition.net.

Reinier Van Der Sandt admitted using multiple, fake names on a Yahoo Group (he even had imaginary conversations with himself between his fake Yahoo identities). If the webmaster for the largest Ex-Baba domains on the internet used incognito, fake identities on a Yahoo Group, who is to say that he is not doing the same on SaiPetition.net? Click Here to read about Reinier Van Der Sandt’s admission to using fake names.

Moreno was spammed with hate mail from a person using anonymous, proxy IP’s. Again, if a person will resort to such drastic steps to cover-ip his/her identity, who is to say they are not doing the same on the bogus Sai Petition? Click Here to visit my hate e-mails page.

On April 3rd 2007, Freestone Wilson agreed to hand over the QuickTopic board FE68KidtskS (on which Ex-Devotees often posted) to Gerald Joe Moreno. Moreno promptly upgraded the board to the Pro-Version (giving him access to all the IPs). Between Sanjay Dadlani, UsedByBaba and Tony O’Clery, they used no less than seventy nine (79) fake names, even attempting to pass themselves off as females, Sai devotees, Sai proponents and people from other countries! See Moreno’s article: Shocking Behavior From Ex-Devotees Of Sathya Sai Baba On The QuickTopic Forum. If Ex-Devotees engage in this type of deceptive and secretive behavior on public forums, who is to say they are not doing the same on the bogus Sai Petition?

SaiPetition.net: Added Submissions:

Perhaps the most disturbing fact about the bogus Sai Petition are the added signatures that were supposedly taken from the Original Petition page, but were NOT listed on the Original Petition page. Where did these added signatures come from?

The first 700 submissions on SaiPetition.net are almost identical to the first 700 submissions on the Original JuST Petition. However, while comparing them, Moreno found some startling dissimilarities. Some posts (mostly pro-Sai Baba) were discarded on SaiPetition.net and twenty four new submissions were mysteriously added. None of the 24 added signatures came from the Original Petition. Since these added signatures are shown as originating within the sequence of the Original Petition, one can’t help to wonder where they came from. The submissions not found on the Original Petition, but listed on SaiPetition.net, are:

  1. Abdallah from Australia
  2. Albutiu Anda from Romania
  3. Alejandro from Argentina
  4. Anish Rathod from the UK
  5. Babu Surati from India
  6. Dan Dumitrescu from Roumania
  7. Debora Lewis Montserrat from France
  8. Diyanat from India
  9. Edwin Reu Rings from Netherlands
  10. Erika Brioschi from the UK
  11. Evgeni from Russia
  12. Fekre from Egypt
  13. Jeannot from Belgium
  14. Jenny Knol from Netherlands
  15. Lello from Italy
  16. Licia from Italy
  17. Livio from Italy
  18. Nirav from USA
  19. Praveen from India
  20. Ratikant from India
  21. Srimathi from India
  22. Suresh from Australia
  23. Samira from Iran
  24. Xortay from USA

SaiPetition.net: Plagiarizing Moreno’s Web-Page Meta-Data:

Click Here to view a Google screen capture that shows a partial section where SaiPetition.net plagiarized Gerald Moreno’s page meta-data verbatim (in a desperate attempt to outrank his website). Click Here to view Moreno’s Petition Analysis page, from which SaiPetition.net plagiarized Moreno’s meta-data. On SaiPetition.net’s main index page, their meta-data description is:

“Critical Analysis of both online petitions against Sathya Sai Baba, of Puttaparthi India, and Guru to millions. Analysis is of merged petitions from the Original Petition and the newer petition at SaiPetition.net by Just, Just Seekers of Truth, and Arthur Klein.”

Compare this to Moreno’s meta-data description, which states:

“Critical Analysis of both online petitions against Sathya Sai Baba, of Puttaparthi India, and Guru to millions. Analysis is of merged petitions from the Original Petition and the newer petition at SaiPetition.net and shows the inherent dishonest, unjust and propagandizing methods employed by Just, Just Seekers of Truth, and Arthur Klein.”

This highlights SaiPetition.net’s desperation. They plagiarize Moreno’s web-page meta-data in a desperate attempt to outrank his site. The meta-tags they used are in the exact same order as the ones listed on Moreno’s page. Shameless thieves!

SaiPetition.net: Suspicions Confirmed: Pro-Sai Posts Deleted:

While making this page, the following post appeared on SaiPetition.net:

“Priya Reddy, India signed the petition on October 1. 2004. Period as a follower: 1988-Present: Sai is a God. He has healed me and my father of cancer. We owe him our lives. You all see only bad. You do not see his power and glory. Vibuthi and amruth manifest from our aunty’s house. This power does not belong to ordinary human. It is divine. No one else can do these things.”

Moreno wondered if SaiPetition.net would allow this post to stay on their petition website. As Moreno suspected, the post was removed the very next day. Why is it that SaiPetition.net removes honest and positive submissions and keeps vile and defamatory submissions? SaiPetition.net may argue that it goes against the premise of their “petition” purposes (and we know what these “purposes” are), but Moreno has already shown how this so-called “petition” is not a petition at all. It is an Anti-Sai “guestbook”. This type of “soviet style” control and behavior contradicts JuST’s claim to furthering a “two way and sincere interface with the public”. As one can see, this is unequivocally insincere, dishonest and one way!

Furthermore, why didn’t Arthur Klein (the alleged author of the petition) submit an official signature to the petition? If you view the signature that is attributed to him on SaiPetition.net, it corresponds to post number 83 on the Original Petition. If you go to the Original Petition, you will see that post 83 is not a signature but a post about spamming (this post comes after 12 voided lines). There are only two posts by Arthur Klein on the Original Petition (796 and 83) and both are not signatures. One is a comment to 2 people about using their full names, and the other is comment that talked about the petition: “…Even though the spamming has caused us undue problems it has helped to further expose our view.” If Arthur Klein wrote the Petition, why didn’t he officially sign it? His comment about spamming is not seen until the 83rd post. There is a strong suspicion that “Arthur Klein” may be a pseudonym for Dave Lyons (who happens to share the exact same email address, as confirmed by WhoIs).

Do Terrorist Organizations Support The Sai Petition?

On May 27th 2007, the SaiPetition.net administrators published the following submission and comments on the Sai Petition (click here for the screencap):

Osama Binladen, Afganistan signed the petition on May 27. 2007.
Period as a follower: – Position in S.S.Org: –

NOTE FROM SAI PETITION ADMINISTRATION – THE ABOVE SUBMISSION FROM AN ALLEGING AL QUEDA PAKISTANSI TERROR ORGANISATION IN U.K. – FROM IP 82.35.154.50 (WITH A BOGUS E-MAIL ADDRESS) – HAS BEEN REPORTED TO THE LONDON METROPOLITAN POLICE FOR THEM TO INVESTIGATE. THE SENDER USING THE NAME OF OSAMA BIN LADEN ALSO ADDED THE FOLLOWING COMMENT:

“i am like all of u here who have commented i also do not like the man. all of u have inspired me.thanks, people like u help people like me!xxxx”

FINAL NOTE, OF COURSE THE THE SAI PETITION ADMINISTRATION AND THE JuST GROUP MOST CERTAINLY DO NOT IN ANY WAY SUPPORT OSAMA BIN LADEN OR ANY SUCH ACTIVITIES WHATEVER. – :

Are “Al Queda Pakistani Terror Organisations in the UK” supporting Anti-Sai Activists and their bogus Sai Petition? Apparently, the Sai Petition Administrator’s seem to think so.

To those possessing sober intellects, it is apparent that this post is one of the more obviously faked posts that plague the bogus ‘Sai Petition’. My thanks to the Sai Petition administrators for making this post public and showing how easy it is for people to submit fake submissions, under fake names and with fake emails.

Sai Petition – In Conclusion:

In conclusion, it seems that SaiPetition.net has fallen into a very sad state with their fraudulent ‘Sai Petition’. Consequently, it is recommended that SaiPetition.net find a more legitimate, legal and honest way of obtaining verifiable signatures for their petition purposes. Although SaiPetition.net stated that many Anti-Sai Activists do not resort to “propaganda” (Moreno is assuming that SaiPetition.net is also referring to itself) the Sai Petition speaks for them to the contrary of their claims.

In order to do some damage control and prevent the valid perception that a majority of the petition signatures are fake, SaiPetition.net needs to come forward with clean hands and have the petition signatures independently verified. Various members of the general public have expressed increasing suspicion over SaiPetition.net’s adamant refusal to have their petition signatures verified. Furthermore, concerned citizens feel that independent media organizations (who have never been affiliated with the Anti-Sai movement) should be utilized to verify the signatures. There is now proof that Anti-Sai Activists do not verify the names or claims made on their deceptive Sai Petition. Rather, they accept negative submissions made under faked names and disperse this information as the truth. This is reprehensible by all means and must be investigated and remedied.

An Example Of Robert Priddy’s Paranoia And Obsession With Gerald Moreno On Wikipedia

A very whiny Robert Priddy (a caustic critic and defamer of Sathya Sai Baba who once hailed the Guru as God Incarnate) made an amusing complaint against Gerald Joe Moreno on Angela’s Wikipedia Talk Page: Reference.

Since Robert Priddy posted his comment on the top of Angela’s talk page (instead of the bottom where it should have been made) Angela moved Robert Priddy’s comment to the bottom of the page where it belonged: See For Yourself.

Robert Priddy was apparently unable to find his previous comment because Angela moved it so he reposted it again: Reference.

Without any proof and while foaming at the mouth and shrieking shrilly, Robert Priddy erroneously claimed that Gerald Moreno removed his post. Robert Priddy said:

Robert Priddy: “You will see the determination of Moreno to stop you knowing what I wrote by the fact that he has deleted my request to you in your user paeg (see below on the discussion page). Just goes to emphasizse my point. Moreno is a full-time stalker and defamer. Robert Priddy” (Refs: 0102)

Yes, those typos are Priddy’s (Robert Priddy was obviously so angry, he couldn’t spell and didn’t care to proofread his vitriol against Moreno).

That’s right! Without conducting the least bit of research and without ascertaining the facts of the matter, Robert Priddy had the audacity to claim that Joe Moreno removed his post! Robert Priddy jumped to the worst case conspiratorial view and insulted Moreno as a “stalker” and “defamer” although Angela was the person who moved Robert Priddy’s comment. Moreno never edited that page!

Talk about pre-senile dementia and paranoia! Robert Priddy is so thoroughly obsessed with Moreno, he thinks that Moreno is out to get him, that Moreno is following him and that Moreno is responsible for his own errors. Ha!
