Naughty Children: Gerald 'Joe' Moreno
Gerald 'Joe' Moreno (New Mexico, USA) - This guy is so troubling that I truly do not know where to start. Despite initially claiming not to be a devotee of Sathya Sai Baba (more on this later) he has gone ahead and eclipsed Lisa De Witt as the main protagonist of the pro-Sai team of defence. Needless to say, this involves abusing, defaming and slandering a variety of anti-Sai activists and ex-devotees with all manner of spurious claims and irresponsible half-baked arguments to support a self-serving agenda. It is not an exaggeration to describe him as the undisputed king of nitpickers and armchair critics.
Another of his troubling claims is the fact that he himself claims to have been 'oiled' by Sai Baba. Careful readers of the Sathya Sai controversy will note that genital oilings are a common feature of Sai Baba's private 1-2-1 meetings with younger male devotees, whether or not they admit that the oiling is sexual in nature. Despite the wide reports of genital oilings of young boys and men by the Baba, it is strange to note how Gerald Moreno claims that his own oiling by Sai Baba was not a sexual occurrence by virtue of Sai Baba's hands being placed on Moreno's lower stomach. Although Moreno cannot give any coherent explanation for Sai Baba's questionable behaviour and why such oilings take place in the first instance, some have questioned the veracity of his own experience as evidenced by an exchange that took place between Gerald and B. Premanand.
One thing that is clear is that, despite claims to the contrary, Gerald appears to have suffered some sort of trauma along the way in his experiences with Sai Baba. As well as confessing on his personal webpage that he almost went insane twice, the thing that I find simultaneously curious and disturbing is his commitment to defending an alleged homosexual paedophile and murderer who claims to be God incarnated on earth, and that he is not a devotee of said pervert.
This non-devotee status is an interesting issue in itself. An earlier version of his webpage stated the following:
"I am not a Sathya Sai Baba devotee. Nevertheless, I have had many positive, powerful and spiritual experiences with SSB, as I have had with any other spiritual personalities. I do not belong to, go to, or affiliate myself with SSB Centers or the SSO."
Later, there was a significant change:
"I am not a Sathya Sai Baba devotee. I was a devotee from the age of 18 to the age of 25. I had/have basic philosophical differences of opinion, with several aspects to SSB's teachings (in particular, God Concepts & Karma), and I left the Sai Movement for that reason. Nevertheless, I have had many beautiful, powerful and spiritual experiences with SSB, as I have had with many other spiritual personalities. My opinion about Sathya Sai Baba (based on my personal experiences with him) is positive. I do not belong to, go to, or affiliate myself with SSB Centers or the SSO. I am an open-minded (but not gullible) agnostic."
Uh huh. I have strong suspicions that the reason he changed his position thus was because he was feeling the heat from people who were openly wondering why he has committed a significant amount of time and energy writing in defence of a troubled avatar who he does not believe in. It appears to have been a cynical move to gain legitimacy for his viewpoint by claiming that he has a reason for investment. Even then he fails, as his current activity does not represent his current beliefs about Sai Baba. He maintains a total of three pro-Sai sites and possibly more, two of which include devotional content with pictures, biographies, and the like. The amount of time he spends defending an individual he claims not to believe in frankly makes him look a little silly. Suffice it to say, he has no need to make "excuses" for Sathya Sai Baba because he himself believes that Sai Baba has sexually abused men.
As stated in his FAQ:
In any case, and despite his efforts to defame ex-devotees, it appears that the general public do not seem very much interested in what he has to say. I know of at least three incidents where his arguments were ridiculed either in private or in public and where he lay thoroughly defeated and humiliated. The last one, which by all accounts left him suffering a pretty savage beating (under the name of 'Equalizer'), took place at the Guruphiliac blog during a comment-war on a negative piece about Sai Baba. That's a wonderful example of how, despite the rabid frothing-at-the-mouth caterwauling that Sai-defenders indulge in, people are far too uninterested and keep their eye on the ball with regards to Sai Baba's own crimes against his devotees. Whenever Gerald Moreno comes across a place where the Sai sex stories have entered the mainstream consciousness, you can be sure that is guaranteed to suffer a crushing defeat.
I mentioned the above in relation to his most recent activities; his embarassing failure at Guruphiliac enabled him to become full of rage and he promptly created an attack-page on his website against the webmaster of the Guruphiliac blog. A large part of his attack consisted of several references to human excrement (thirteen in all) which, to me, seemed entirely unreasonable. I had also noticed that, like his friends Lisa De Witt and Simon Brace, he also seemed to be developing an unhealthy fascination with the anus. How bitterly ironic that whereas Lisa and Simon develop fascinations for the orifice in question, Moreno goes even further and preoccupies himself with what is expelled from said orifice.
Judging by his personal website, Gerald appears to be something of a highly emotional fellow. When he doesn't suffer fits of plaintive weeping, he chants what he refers to as 'positive affirmations' to himself. Here is an example of one such affirmation:
"I am a Persistently Positive weed! I Grow! Grow! Grow! Despite being chopped, poisoned or pulled! My Roots are Deep and Alive! I Thrive where others fail! I never give up! I am a Persistently Positive weed! I Rule the Garden of My Life!"
Yes, this is the limit of Gerald Moreno's sense of self-esteem; he is a weed in the garden of his life. Upon realising how embarrassing this and other affirmations sounded for him, he remarked that I am providing him with plenty of 'fertilizer'. Indeed, just see how this connects with the anus and excrement fascinations as shown above; Gerald views himself as a weed covered with manure, animal excrement.
What ensued next in the Guruphiliac episode was interesting because it appeared that the Guruphiliac had enemies of his own. What else could Gerald Moreno do but ally with them in his own hateful crusade? "The enemy of my enemy is my friend", indeed!
Unfortunately for Gerald, this alliance was to prove his undoing. His new friends were and are the ardent followers of Rasa von Werder, a female guru who appreciates monetary donations to build her own matriarchal church. A fair ambition you'd think, until it becomes clear that there is more to Ms. Werder than meets the eye. For a start, Rasa (real name Kellie Everts) believes that stripping for men at the age of 45 is an effective fundraising and recruitment strategy. Having slept with more than a thousand men by 1978 by her own admission, she has also made around nine appearances in Playboy magazine. If that wasn't enough to send you into a stunned silence, it turns out that Ms. Werder (a.k.a. 'Kinky Kellie') is a porn star who produces her own movies that regularly involve depraved and disgusting scenes of urination and simulated eating of excrement. Her website also hosts several pages of soft-porn pictures featuring her in licentious poses with other female models.
It looks like his crusade to "expose the Sai Baba exposers" is doomed. Considering the haughty tone he often takes in his criticism of ex-devotees, it is unsurprising to note that he has nothing to say about the unsavoury proclivities of his compadres Lisa De Witt and Simon Brace. Another one bites the dust. Unsurprisingly, Gerald Moreno withdrew from public discussion after all of these embarrassing facts about his disturbing associations and scatology became public knowledge, although it is only a matter of time before he resurfaces elsewhere at another time.
Gerald Moreno has slandered and maligned respectable and elderly people as being anti-Semites and much worse, simply because their writings were passed on from person to person and eventually ended up on sites of questionable affiliation. Using the same paltry standards, we have no problem with connecting Gerald Moreno to ex-porn stars who produce the most vile and disgusting perverted pornographic movies, what to speak of his direct affiliations with abusive and hateful Sai devotees who suffer from alcoholism and grow their own marijuana.
As per his FAQ:
The fact remains that the case itself does not in any way deny the sex abuse claims of the plaintiff, and therefore we submit that Gerald has simply tried to find a convenient excuse to rid himself of the embarrassment he felt whenever his beliefs were pointed out to contradict his own actions. While also claiming not to be a Sai devotee, Gerald has exhibited the exact behaviour of a Sai devotee which is to flip-flop on his position on Sai Baba whenever facts are brought to light that further enunciate the fraud that is Sai Baba.
After this, he went back into hiding.
UPDATE June 15 2006: Gerald Moreno recently confessed to having dreams about me on his stalkblog. Among the more disturbing elements, he alleges dreaming of spying on me while being present in my private bedroom. His esteemed colleague, Lisa De Witt, also let slip on a public discussion board that Gerald had been having dreams of me on several other occasions.
Considering the extent and the efforts that Gerald has expended in demonising me on his stalkblog as well as publishing scurrillous attacks about me on his website, it has now become tragically evident that Moreno is completely consumed in his crazed and pathological obsession with me.
WHEREAS Gerald Moreno regularly updates his stalkblog by rehashing his malicious and distorted propaganda against me, as well as distorting issues in ways that suit his aggressive agenda,
WHEREAS Gerald Moreno has claimed to be observing complete celibacy on Sai Baba's direct and personal order to him,
WHEREAS Gerald Moreno has agreed that an apt description of his psychosexual state is that of asexuality, effectively stating that he harbours no attraction or sexual desires towards women,
WHEREAS Gerald Moreno has publicly displayed an engrossing fascination towards me, even going so far as to confess the contents of his dreams,
WHEREAS Gerald Moreno has publicly presented himself as an oversensitive and effusive spiritualist and bordering on outright effeminacy,
Whereas Gerald Moreno has created and regularly maintains not one, but two stalkblogs against me,
WHEREAS Gerald Moreno has recently re-formatted his stalkblog in a neon pink theme,
WHEREAS Gerald Moreno has recently confessed to having intimate dreams about me,
I have hereby concluded that Gerald 'Joe' Moreno is a homosexual.
UPDATE June 17 2006: A full twenty hours and five minutes after the publishing of the last update, Gerald Moreno made moves to disguise his discovered sexuality issues by indulging in some serious projection. Inventing a story about my own supposed sexuality confusion, he proceeded to state this as the reason for daubing his blog with a neon pink theme. Unfortunately for Gerald, this is not a logical proposition as even the most 'greenest' professional knows that presentation is everything. Consequently, the choice of a neon pink theme says more about Gerald Moreno than it does about anybody else.
Gerald Moreno would be well-advised to seek counselling in order to come to terms with his surfacing homosexuality, as well as several other disturbing issues such as his perverse sexual fetishes, his own experience of sexual molestation as well as his constant flip-flopping on fundamental issues to do with Sathya Sai Baba all documented in this post. As we can only envision more childish retorts from Gerald, it is considered that no more updates will be made.
Baba's ex-devotees has lost all credibility and is beyond repair.
It's all over bar the shouting.
