"Reasons for signing Petition". Kira R. a day ago .......It is a simple request for IBM Watson to be asked a very direct, straightforward question; it appears absurd for the request to not be granted in the furtherance of scientific investigation. It does not appear to be a valid reason that IBM Watson should not be asked the question and that IBM Watson's answer should not be publically available. The answer could advance a scientific understanding affecting areas of behavioral, philosophical, psychological, and political science--to name only a few.

Dear CEO Clark Gilbert.
You have read many of my emails,  now you block them.....
You have a responsibility to the public. To share facts or knowledge that is available.
Write the story about broken equality, violations of oaths by DOJ, UAG Sean Reyes, Gov. Herbert and Sim Gill with knowledge of corporate bribery and slavery use in our country. Under our Constitutional rule of law...........It is broken and can be fixed....
But not if our media, press, information distribution entities WON'T SHARE THIS INFORMATION. 
Corporate bribery violates equality. and the evidence or proof of intent is clearly shown in these documents. You, Deseret News must do you duty to God and Nation to share what you now know.
Our laws are being broken and we have an instinct mechanism that is preventing us citizens from changing our status quo operations. We must do what is right. Be ethical.....above all other considerations ...BE ETHICAL TOWARD US OTHER CITIZENS AND OUR RIGHTS.
your brother and fellow citizen,
Jonathan L. Peterson

=============================================
Dear Law Enforcement Against Prohibition:
      How to end the war on drugs/human beings exercising their God given rights:
I would like to litigate against the AMA, American Medical Association, I sent them proofs that our constitutional equality is being violated with Slavery-based drug laws and why it is not being addressed. They did nothing, being paralyzed with fear....A lawsuit in behalf of every United States of America Citizen. Because we cannot be forced into script powered slavery under Constitutional  Rule over all laws....Our equality is clearly broken: Doctors of medicine and their Partnership Monopoly cheat. This inequality is a violation against our highest principle of Democracy. NO LAW MAY VIOLATE OUR HIGHEST JJ PRINCIPLE:EQUALITY UNDER ALL LAWS.
FOR ALL CITIZENSHIP MEMBERS ALIKE, IN EVERYWAY UNDER LAW.
Do you see/comprehend the truth and logic of what I just shared with you?
I defend our constitutional equality NOW BROKEN, AND NOT BEING REPAIRED. BECAUSE OF OUR INSTINCT MECHANISM, BLINDING US TO REALITY. ...FOR THE GOOD OF THE GROUP...In its immoral survival based opinion. And its opinion runs your existence in reality my brothers and sisters.
God is merciful to his children. ...Otherwise you would not be receiving this message.........Totally against Satan/Instinct mechanisms security protocols...I am different than you all......I can see reality and my mission is to share this logic with every one of you....My logic is based on all of the facts  on hand......Your logic is survival based and needs to have this upgrade from Our Lord Jesus Christ.......Who loves you even if you don't believe in Him..
-------------------------back in Jan.2011, I wrote this and the Twin-Falls Times News actually printed this.........But then wouldn't print a thing while felonies were happening, continuing to happen to me for trying to prove drug laws and bribery were both against our existing laws....
here it as my logic is becoming clear for the first time in my life..
I don't want my children or yours to use drugs. I desire our world to be a safer place to live for all peoples.------------
PEOPLE NEED DRUGS----FACT
PAIN CONTROL:
PEOPLE WITH MONEY……….(open arms full of love) MULTIPLE DOCTORS, PAIN CLINICS, PSYCHIATRISTS, UNLIMITED RESOURCES
PEOPLE WITHOUT MONEY……… TURNED AWAY BY:  DOCTORS, PAIN CLINICS, PSYCHIATRITS, ETC.
PAIN DEFINITION:
    PHYSICAL PAIN (EASY TO IDENTIFY MOST OF THE TIME) GRIEF, GUILT, SEPARATION, DEPRESSION, ANXIETY, CHEMICAL IMBALANCE, FEAR, PARANOIA, HATRED, SELF LOATHING, HOPELESSNESS, LOW SELF IMAGE, FEELING NON SOCIATALLY CONNECTED, ALONE, AND MANY MORE ARE JUST AS REAL AND JUST AS MEDICATED AS PHYSICAL PAIN BY LEGAL AND ILLEGAL MEANS.
    PEOPLE WITH MONEY CAN GO FROM DOCTOR TO DOCTOR ETC. UNTIL THEY GET THE HELP (DRUG/DRUGS) THEY NEED OR THINK THEY NEED.
PEOPLE WITHOUT MONEY (ENOUGH TO GET THE HELP “DRUG/DRUGS”THEY NEED) CAN’T GO FROM DOCTOR TO DOCTOR, PAIN CLINICS, ETC. UNTIL THEY GET THE HELP THEY NEED. 
THIS IS SO FUNDAMENTALLY WRONG.  EVERY CENT ON PROCECUTION AND DETENTION IS WASTED ON A LIE.  EXCEPT WHEN OTHER CRIMINAL LAWS ARE BROKEN THEY ARE NO DIFFERENT THAN THE MILLIONARE THAT CAN HAVE JUST ABOUT ANY DRUG DELIVERED TO THERE HOME (FOR A PRICE OF COURSE). 
JUST AS WITH ALCOHOL (PROBABLY THE WORST DRUG-BECAUSE PEOPLE USING IT DON’T THINK THEY ARE IMPAIRED) ADULTS SHOULD USE AT THERE DISCRETION UNTIL SOME CRIMINAL LAW IS BROKEN.  NO DIFFERENCE AT ALL, EXCEPT THE MONITARY GAINS MADE BY PRIVATE CORPORATIONS WHO BENEFIT BY STATIS QUO NEVER BEING CHALLENGED BY LAW MAKERS. WHY WOULD THEY?
MAXIMUM CONGRESSIONAL DONATIONS SHOULD BE LIMITED TO $1000 (OR $10,000) AND ONLY FROM UNITED STATES CITIZENS.  OUR CONGRESS IS THE FINEST MONEY CAN BUY, FOR NOW.  WE HAVE TO PUT AN END TO THIS PRACTICE. THIS IS UNCONTROLABLY CORRUPT IN PRINCIPAL AT LEAST.
THE ONLY WAY TO HAVE A FREE AND FAIR DEMOCRACY IS TO PROSCECUTE ACTIONS AGAINT SOCIATY NOT PERSONAL MEDICATION CHOICES (FOR ADULTS). SPEND THE SAVED MONEY TO GET PEOPLE MEDICAL/MENTAL HELP AND PLENTY OF LAW ENFORSEMENT TO SUPPORT THE EXSISTING LAWS FOR THE PROTECTION OF OUR GREAT SOCIATY: CRIMES AGAINST PEOPLE, BUSINESSES AND GOVERNMENT AGENCIES (WHICH ARE PEOPLE).   (Ask any CONGRESS-PERSON if they would like to be poly-graphed as to all their voting and decision making processes)    
 Jonathan L. Peterson           Jan 10, 2011
Example: you are hit by a speeder and goes before the local judge. The other party just donated $25k with no strings attached (they would say). Would you want to have that judge rule whether you should be compensated or not?

If Pope Francis or Pres. Thomas S. Monson would address the revelation from God; Satan is instinct mechanism. We Christians could battle our true adversary. Survival Instinct which blinds us to the evils we participate in here at home.
Bribery, Slavery-based drug laws, Abortion without due process rights for new citizens all violate our code of conduct and the rules God gave us for government.
Equality Under All Laws,,period.
We must oppose our evil practices and share this gift from God.
God created Satan/instinct programs so we could have life.
Now God gives us knowledge of how he operates every life form.
His machines; knowing this truth is in direct opposition to instinctual powers over all living flesh. It has been Satan's secret, but now God in his mercy delivers us from bondage.
More choices to go with knowledge of right and wrongs. Less blinded to reality, as before.
This is our evolutionary hurtle to cross. Pray to God we share this gift now, not at a later time.
If you doubt these words are from God? Ask yourself if you want IBM Watson team to release its answer: "Is Instinct Mechanism an Artificial Intelligence Program?"

Please review this gift from God to mankind. I serve the Lord Jesus Christ. your brother Elder Jonathan L. Peterson.
We must share this knowledge so we can prepare for our Lord's return to reign over the earth.
 
this was posted to Deseret News this morning,  they have the message on hold waiting for the editor to approve it being allowed for LDS consumption.
 
(this is proof of what Satan actually is and does for each one of us, so we could have life.
 
Your reality, is being attacked by real facts. Sign this credo petition if you think I am crazy...and corporate mission laws don't prove intent to commit bribery??. Who isn't getting all the facts on hand for your flawed logic and false beliefs. This is why you don't care if constitutional equality is broken. You sub-conscience mechanism don't want you to think to much. You might hurt yourself or group status quo operations. This is why humans are sheep. You just proved my reality theory, Blinded to the facts on hand.

Comment on LDS Missionary work using social media..
 

Our world is changing, the speed of sharing information is part of God's plan for us. God reveals to mankind what Satan is and does for each one of us.


Missionary work will grow so fast we cannot imagine. Science gains logic; knowing that Instinct Mechanism could not have possibly created itself, will change our perception of reality.


God is with us and gives us choices we never had before.


If you want this new knowledge to be shared?


Ask LDS leadership, Pres. Monson if these things are true:


Is Satan instinct program, a self-replication artificial intelligence program? It was created by God after all. And must be important to understand how it operates our reality for each of us.


We as followers of Christ, must repent for our silence to wrongs being done within our personal authority to act. Satan has been blinding man with its power over status quo operations from the being.


Pray to God that we share this gift, now. Before we destroy our economy, our government and our experiment in freedom and liberty. God can and will free us, but we must do our part.


"full of truth"

We only need enforce our existing laws. One test case by the DOJ or any jurisdiction over bribery at any state or federal capital. And corporations will be writing apologies and want to make a deal with the DOJ.
We will simple not allow corporate bribery to be used ever again..
And adapt to government without violating our constitutional equality.
That is what bribery does...........violates equality.........

This is not ethical or lawful behavior out of all our leadership and we citizens are doing no better. ........We  Citizens are behaving badly and don't seem to know it. 
Now--You personally, each citizen under oath swore to protect the weaker citizens from unlawful, unfair,  unethical cheating to be done to citizens without opening your oath driven mouths again.  Obey the law you use to put other citizens in jail for: I Solemnly Swear to uphold and defend our Constitution for the United States Of America and her citizen members..........
No........More...........Cheating...........By using laws to achieve power over other citizens, that is what cheating gets you; unfair advantage in the game of life. _______________________________

      Cody Stewart probably wasn't aware he and Gov. Herbert were breaking our most precious citizenship law. Bribery isn't allowed it takes unfair advantage of other citizen or group. They aren't playing by the rules of conduct we swore our oath to uphold. Each of you are fellow citizens who are sworn to defend our constitution from its enemies foreign and domestic.
You must be ethical at this point in time or be truly guilty of gross misconduct, criminal in seriousness of offence. Maybe obstruction of Justice.

The Ecumenical Educational Council

NEWSLETTER -- June 2014

 

EVERY 26 MINUTES a pastor leaves ministry never to return
 

Thank you for taking a moment to read June’s newsletter.  On average, every 26 minutes a pastor leaves the ministry never to return.  That is about 1500 every four weeks.  I know some and my guess is you do too.  I spoke with a minister friend a couple of weeks ago at a very difficult church that told me, "If I had a way to make a living, I would leave tomorrow." This is not a fly-by-night, flippant individual, but a deeply dedicated servant of Christ with a profound ability to shepherd.  However, years of mean-spirited church people, those referred to as Clergy Killer’s, have destroyed ministers world-wide.  The Clergy Killer’s have vaporized a significant number of minister’s spiritual and emotional resilience. 

My guess is that you know a pastor like this; maybe you are a pastor like this.  I don't have the magic bullet to solve the problem, but I wanted to let you know about a first step of help. Every minister should own a copy of this documentary. It is the number one Christian documentary of 2013, BETRAYED: The Clergy Killer’s DNA. 

To view the movie trailer and order a copy go to:   

https://betrayedthemovie.com

Michael J. McManus, President of Marriage Savers and a syndicated columnist wrote an extraordinary article on BETRAYED: The Clergy Killer’s DNA.  Michael’s essay was published on the World Wide Web on April 24, 2014.  I was inundated with emails requesting the Ecumenical Educational Council to share with our readership the uniqueness of Michael’s writing style.  Please, take a few minutes out of your day and give serious thought to his treatise.

“BETRAYED: The Clergy Killer’s DNA”

By Mike McManus
April 24, 2014

Why are 1,500 clergy leaving pastoral ministry each month?

Many have been driven out by the “Clergy Killer Phenomenon.” As one pastor put it in a powerful new documentary, “BETRAYED: The Clergy Killer’s DNA,” “So many ministers are being destroyed by evil and evil people in the life of the church who are willing to take the throat out of the pastor.”

Another adds, “It may be one or two or eight to ten in a congregation who give themselves to evil purposes for their own narcissistic benefits.” A third asserted, “These people who act with viscous hearts are often called clergy killers.”

Sadly, they are effective. As one scholar put it, “Most people do not live a full career in the ministry.” In fact, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that 90% of clergy in all denominations will not stay in ministry long enough to reach the age of retirement!

Why? Three-fifths of congregations have forced a pastor to leave and 70% of clergy report a continuing struggle with depression.

A female pastor can be seen in the film’s trailer, asserting, “There is no better place for evil to hang out than in the church.”

However, the evil of “clergy killers” is unknown to most parishioners. As one knowledgeable expert put it, “Most people do not have a clue that this is going on.”

The Rev. Jason Miller called the “BETRAYED” film “an extraordinary Christian Documentary” in which “leading theologians, ministers and preachers in breathtaking sequences” explain “The Clergy Killer Phenomenon.”

He believes the film is “the optimum protection for ministers.” Perhaps, but only if church members, clergy and lay leaders see the documentary so they can understand the pressure that many pastors are facing on a daily basis.

The week after Easter may be a shocking time to describe this pandemic which stretches the globe – yet is virtually unknown to most church members. The joy, great music and moving preaching on Easter resonates for many days later.

“Christ is risen. He is risen, indeed” – are the words still ringing in minds.

Yet all of the Apostles except John were slaughtered for bearing witness. The Acts of the Apostles report upon the death of Stephen, the first martyr. And who was cheering in the crowd? Saul who later converted and changed his name to Paul.

We tend to think that clergy persecution happened 2,000 years ago – not in contemporary times. However, the Hartford Institute for Religious Research reports that a stunning 83% of clergy spouses want their spouse to leave the ministry, and half of clergy would leave if they had another way to make a living.

In fact, only a tenth of pastors retire while still in ministry. As one pastor confesses on camera in BETRAYED, “Congregational life is nothing but politics.”

Some of the blame must be laid upon the shoulders of bishops and other denominational leaders who close their eyes to the destruction of their clergy. As one observer laments on camera“Many of our bishops, I am sad to say, have lost their faith.” Another shakes his head, “Clergy are expendable. Churches are not.”

Clergy killers can be found in most congregations. “The church is the one place where they feel they can voice their opinion and do things that are disruptive. You are free to fight in the church,” sighs one observer. Another calls it “spiritual warfare” and “combat.”

The enemies of the church are individuals operating outside of God’s will, but within the church. Of course, “Most come to church not to do battle but to pray,” said one pastor.

However, those people of good will need to be educated. That’s the purpose of the 93 minute film, “BETRAYED: The Clergy Killer’s DNA” which was produced by U.S. Films.

Rev. Dr. David Moreland asserts, “I pray you will join the growing number of men and women who are finding this film to be of paramount importance for healthy congregational life, and a tremendous resource for overworked clergy who are often targeted by clergy killers.”

During Easter week, the Ecumenical Educational Council announced that it chose “BETRAYED: The Clergy Killer’s DNA” as “the most important documentary of 2013.”

Dr. Jason Miller called it a “cinematic treasure” which “concentrates on the real unsung heroes of our Christian faith,” those who lead our churches.

Get the film and show it to your pastor and ask if he has been targeted by clergy killers – so he is no longer standing alone, and has allies to counter the evil.

Michael J. McManus, President of Marriage Savers and a syndicated columnist.

In His Service,

Rev. Dr. David Moreland

Director
