Robert Priddy (an Ex-Devotee of the Indian Guru, Sri Sathya Sai Baba) said on his Wordpress Blog (robertpriddy.wordpress.com – which contains numerous unsubstantiated and unverifiable defamations, libels and slurs against Sathya Sai Baba & Sai Devotees and provides links to defamatory and libelous articles written by Alan Kazlev, Brian Steel and Conny Larsson against Joe Moreno):
“Since fanatical defenders of Sathya Sai Baba and his abuses attack me constantly, I can confidently say that I have told not one single lie. I am confident that fair-minded readers will see this from the breadth and depth of my output.”
Needless to say, Robert Priddy’s amusing claim that he has not told “one single lie” is his penultimate lie. Robert Priddy’s numerous bold-faced and gutter untruths have been thorougly exposed by Joe Moreno on his Pro-Sai website, saisathyasai.com. Robert Priddy has not even attempted to refute Moreno’s fully documented webpages exposing his penchant for prevarication.
The following list contains a small sampling of numerous pathological lies that Robert Priddy has told and which he has never retracted or apologized for up to the present date:
- → Priddy’s False Information About David Bailey
- → Robert Priddy’s penchant for projection
- → Robert Priddy’s Disgusting Lie About Joy Thomas
- → Robert Priddy And His ‘Babafan’ Lie
- → Robert Priddy’s Phony ‘Phone’ Lies
- → The ‘Green Diamond’ Lie By Robert Priddy
- → Proof That Priddy Distributes Fraudulent Information On His Website
- → Robert Priddy Was A Sai Devotee For How Many Years?
- → Robert Priddy Flip-Flops About Anonymity & Anonymous Online Identities
- → More Lies About Joe Moreno
- → Robert Priddy’s Colossal Ignorance About IPs
- → Robert Priddy’s & Moon Madness
- → RobertPriddy – Fraudulent Claims About Dr. Erlendur Haraldsson
- → The Truth About Shri V.K. Narasimhan
- → A Funny And Embarrassing Wikipedia Blunder
- → Robert Priddy Lies About Lisa DeWitt
- → Another Not So Priddy Lie Exposed
- → Another Unsupported Lie From Robert Priddy
- → Say What? More Lies From Anti-Sai’s
- → Robert Priddy Sticks His Foot In His Mouth Again
In addition to these fully referenced webpages, Robert Priddy also accused Joe Moreno of (again, a small sampling):
- Having “no other work but is well-funded”
- Using “dirty tricks, like posting names of his opponents on porno sites, then publicising it”
- Being “an old friend of Robert M. Baskin”
- “widely propagates lies and slanders and the wildest kinds of misinformation”
- Having his website linked to by RadioSai (an official Sai domain)
- “openly claiming to have contacted the Sathya SaiOrganisation in U.K. by telephone (Mr Bhagwani) who has replied to his questions etc.”
- Breaking “US copyright laws and would also be liable to conviction for unsupportable slander and defamation in a court of law” (although Priddy and other Ex-Devotees have not even attempted to file any kind of legal suit against Moreno)
- Posting “images of a pornographic kind” (see my response)
- Using “sexually explicit language” on Yahoo Groups (see my response)
Of course, one will not find Robert Priddy substantiating any of these bold-faced lies with any referenced or verifiable material. I, on the other hand, have fully responded to Robert Priddy’s libels and slurs in three seperate articles entitled “Defamatory Attacks Addressed” (See: 01 – 02 – 03).
The truth of the matter is that Robert Priddy’s rodomontades are full of anonymous accounts, exaggerations, conflations, illogic, fanaticism, irrationality, extremism, speculations and outright prevarications.
Despite Robert Priddy’s loud whining and gnashing of teeth (for about 8 years now), it is significant that Sathya Sai Baba has never (ever) been formally charged with any crime (sexual or otherwise) and not even one alleged victim has even attempted to file a basic police complaint or a court case against Sai Baba in India (Ref). Nor have any alleged victims come forward stating that Robert Priddy can speak on their behalfs. Since Robert Priddy was never an alleged victim of Sai Baba, his second-hand commentaries, observations, arguments and articles about alleged victims and their alleged sexual abuse are entirely hearsay.
I would welcome any dialogue with Robert Priddy (or any other Ex-Devotee for that matter) on an open forum to discuss the issue of “slander”, “libels” and “defamations”. Any non-partison individual(s) interested in hosting or mediating an open forum regarding these issues is encouraged to contact Joe Moreno.
