In this case, the accusations came from *dozens* of Sai Baba students who were parents who walked in and found him fondling their kids. As for "ruining his reputation," you forget two things: * First, the near-incredible ability of True Believers to ignore anything that contradicts their unrealistic view of a guru. YouTube is *full* of videos that clearly show Satya Sai Baba "palming" the things he was supposed to be "manifesting" from thin air. But they see these videos and still love the guy and claim that the videos were faked. (They weren't. The asshole was so sure that his students were duped that he didn't even bother to *try* to hide his cheap parlor magic.) * Second, several of these concerned parents tried to bring charges of child molestation against him, but in India none of them were ever allowed to reach a court- room, and in many cases never even the newspapers. Why? Because many of the highest members of the Indian guvmint were (and still are) Sai Baba devotees. They stepped in and prevented any of these cases from ever being tried. All of this is in the public record, from the few Indian newspapers brave enough to print it. The guy was a total slimeball. > From: turquoiseb <no_re...@yahoogroups.com> > To: FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com > Sent: Tuesday, June 11, 2013 9:41 AM > Subject: [FairfieldLife] Re: Another Realm - youtube of Swami > > --- In mailto:FairfieldLife%40yahoogroups.com, "martin.quickman" > <martin.quickman@> wrote: > > > > Hot off the press, just finished and polished is this new > > youtube with many beautiful Sri Sai Baba photos edited > > in painterly style. > > > > http://sathyasaimemories.wordpress.com/2013/06/11/another-realm-you-tube-more-sathya-sai-memories/ > > Where are the "painterly" photos of him fondling > the penises of small children? >
