IMPORTANT NOTICE: IF YOU ARE ON THE HEAL MISSION WATCH-LIST AND WOULD LIKE TO BE REMOVED, PLEASE SEE IF YOU MEET COPE MINISTRIES MINIMUM MARKETING STANDARDS.

COPE MINISTRIES and THE HEAL MISSION are expanding the scope to include any and all "False Prophets" that include, but, are not limited to: vitamin/supplement industry, self-help frauds, academic frauds, healthcare frauds, segregated congregate care frauds, environmental frauds, animal welfare frauds, cults (for profit and/or that clearly use some form of coercive thought reform/undue influence of recruits involving vicious deception), and similar entities.  We will be asking everyone with a complaint against a business to report it to their home state's attorney general via a consumer complaint (links to online forms found here under your home state's header) or report false advertising and misleading marketing to the FTC.  The government itself is faith-based in many ways and presumes everyone is innocent and there is no pre-crime unit.  Up to 85% of fraud is not discovered by the victims within the window to recover damages where a person of reasonable intelligence exercising due diligence would've identified the issue before the statute of limitations ran out.  According to some sources, 96% of fraud cases go unsolved and unresolved.  Those false prophets making false profits need to be stopped.  And, by reporting it in a timely fashion to the proper authorities, you can help stop those evil deceiving devils!  So, it is our hope that you will report it to the proper authorities and if it is too late for that, let us know.  We'll make sure the court of public opinion learns of the outrage to protect others from falling victim to the same criminal/sinful enterprise.  This Church is committed to the Absolute Truth and All Virtues combined as an Abstract Archetype that is universal, eternal, perfectly heroic, and perpetual many (including Minister Angela Smith) refer to as GOD.  We do not support hypocrisy and welcome criticism ourselves and are open about our imperfection.  We are a faith-based mission and church and we believe victims.  Skip to the list or keep reading.

THE TRUTH:

All segregated congregate care providers, including those on our watch-list, are welcome to contact us to correct any information or provide additional data that may assist with delivering the whole truth to the public.  We've found in many cases where this offer has been abused or resulted in revealing additional basis for our concerns. For some examples see:
http://www.heal-online.org/tcfl.htm http://www.heal-online.org/bolthouse.htm and http://www.heal-online.org/abundant2.htm.  Now, we are willing to look at the facts and may have questions or require documentation backing up any claims.  We do verify licensing, academic backgrounds, and other qualifications when investigating and researching programs on our watch-list to assist consumers seeking additional information on such programs or victims requiring assistance with getting corroborating evidence of their claims.  We do that in order to make sure the information we provide is accurate and verified and cite our sources.  In the event any information we've posted is in error, we're happy to make a correction.  And, for information on how such requests are handled and have been resolved historically, see: http://www.heal-online.org/requests.htm

HEAL does not support segregated congregate care for many reasons which include that many such facilities are abusive, exploitative, fraudulent, and lack effective oversight often as a result of fraudulent misrepresentation coupled with the ignorance of those seeking to enroll loved ones in such facilities, programs, schools, or centers without a valid court order and involuntarily.  In the United States such involuntary placements done without a court order are apparently illegal as they either violate the Americans with Disabilities Act community integration requirement or due process rights of those involuntarily placed.  Now, in regards to parents, in the United States parents have the right to waive their own rights, but, not the rights of their minor children.  See
http://www.heal-online.org/legalarguments.htm for more information.  Now, most facilities on our watch list include waivers, indemnity clauses, and sworn statements parents must sign assuring the program that the parents have the right to make the placement involuntarily and without due process in a segregated congregate care environment, however, California and federal prosecutors as well as settled law appears to suggest that is not the case.  In fact, in the David Taylor case found at http://www.heal-online.org/provocases.htm, Taylor sued Provo Canyon School and his mother as co-defendants.  His mother was found liable for 75% of the damages awarded to Taylor as a result of multiple complaints including false imprisonment, while the program was found only 25% liable because the mother owed a duty of due diligence to investigate anyone to which she would entrust care of her child and she failed to do so. 

Now, HEAL opposes segregated congregate care and we find most placements are happening illegally in the USA which if the youth understood their rights would result in unfortunate outcomes for the parents, particularly when they don't exercise good judgment and support the fraud and abuse rather than their own children when they need remedy and justice.  And, HEAL supports all victims of fraud and abuse in seeking remedies at law for any crimes or torts committed against them.  And, that's true whether or not the program or victims are in the USA. 

HEAL has a 5 point argument against segregated congregate care we'd like you to consider:

a.  Segregated care is unconstitutional and a civil rights violation.  It is only permissible if a person is unable to survive independent of an institutional environment.  For more on this, watch the HEAL Report at 
https://youtu.be/C4NzhZc4P0A.  Or, see:   http://www.ada.gov/olmstead/  which includes in part:    "United States v. Florida – 1:12-cv-60460 – (S.D. Fla.) – On April 7, 2016, the United States filed an Opposition to the State of Florida’s Motion for Partial Summary Judgment.  In the Motion, the State had asked the Court to rule, on a variety of grounds, that the United States could not recover damages for unnecessarily institutionalized children to whom the State had been deliberately indifferent."

b.  Institutionalization is always dehumanizing and coercive.  Institutionalization always harms the institutionalized and deprives them of protected civil rights.  Dr. David Straker, Psychiatry Professor at Columbia University's School of Medicine (Ivy League) explains this in detail at
http://changingminds.org/disciplines/sociology/articles/institutionalization.htm.  "Many institutions, from prisons to monasteries to asylums, deliberately want to control and manage their inmates such that they conform and do not cause problems. Even in less harsh environments, many of the institutionalization methods may be found, albeit in more moderated form (although the psychological effect can be equally devastating)."  (See website linked in this paragraph for more info.)

c.  Institutionalization is not in the best interest of children.  Institutions are not ever better for a child than living with a loving family.  Source:  
http://www.unicef.org/cambodia/12681_23295.html       

d.  Reform schools, residential treatment programs, and other segregated congregate care settings have been shown to be ineffective and harmful.  Best source on this currently is:    
https://www.acgov.org/probation/documents/EndoftheReformSchoolbyVinny.doc

e. Boarding Schools, even the "good ones", result in a form of social death, isolation, and cause both anxiety and depression.  Therefore, it is clearly not in the best interest of the youth subjected to those environments.  Sources:
http://www.theguardian.com/books/2015/jun/08/boarding-school-syndrome-joy-schaverien-review and http://www.telegraph.co.uk/education/secondaryeducation/11662001/The-truth-about-boarding-school-syndrome.html

Beyond the above arguments against segregated congregate care, we have reports from the NIH, Surgeon General, Yale University Studies, and much more showing the methodologies of behavior modification are damaging, harmful, and ineffective.  You can request these documents via
e-mail.  In addition, for such programs offering academic services or claiming to offer diplomas, certifications, or the like, it is important to check to see if it is a diploma mill with no accredited academic services.  Please see article: "Avoiding Scams: What You Need To Know"  for important information on how to avoid education/training scams.

If you'd like to see what HEAL suggests rather than segregated congregate care (i.e. committing a crime or tort against your child if done against their will without a court order), please see articles: "Fix Your Family, Help Your Teen"
and "How Would You Handle My Out of Control Teen?".

If you have a complaint against any facility, please file a complaint with the appropriate law enforcement agency or your home state's attorney general.  For reporting resources see:
http://www.heal-online.org/report.htm

SPECIAL NOTE: HEAL cares.  We recommend victims report crimes and violations to the proper authorities in a timely fashion within the statutes of limitations to get justice regardless of nature of offense.  HEAL can't take anonymous reports to the authorities and demand action.  Even when we get reports that are requested to be kept confidential yet reported to the proper authorities, that doesn't achieve anything.  The authorities consider any reports HEAL makes for third-parties to be hearsay which doesn't work for probable cause for an investigation by the proper authorities.  Now, if you just want to submit a complaint and treat HEAL like a complaint board, it has to be under penalty of perjury with the understanding we may have to use it if the program you are complaining about decides to challenge the veracity of our content.  We believe you.  We know what goes on at these places.  And, the above article explains why it is not in the best interest of children and youth to be segregated like criminals from the rest of society unless indeed criminals, and, even then it's not good for the criminals, just arguably for society.  HEAL is prioritizing constitutional freedoms and individual liberty which includes respecting the rights of others to make decisions that don't adversely effect you in a manner legally actionable.  You may also find the following article helpful if you need help figuring out the way to start exercising due diligence and thinking totally for yourself rather than responding to emotional cues or stimulation to make you feel momentarily happy with a purchase until you have a house full of junk and don't know why your kids never leave the house even when their 50.  Some people over-compensate in segregated congregate care for what they see as slothfulness in their wards by forcing them into labor trafficking.  And, a little teaching of responsibility or respectfully addressing that while acknowledging one's own failures in that regard prior to the teen years, might resolve a lot of family differences.  Here's the article: "How HEAL Identifies and Defines Cults".

ADDITIONAL NOTE: HEAL does our best to protect our sources.  But, with journalism or investigative reporting we have to independently verify claims made against facilities/programs/cults/etc on our watch-list.  We do this in a few ways.  We see if others who were enrolled at the same time can confirm an incident.  We check to see if there are any reports to the proper authorities about claims made that we receive.  We consider lawsuits or other evidence of sworn testimony ample verification for reporting purposes.  Where we are unable to verify any individual complaint for any reason beyond the word of the party reporting to us, we ask that said be made in the federal declaration/under penalty of perjury format.  But, that does not mean that additional evidence doesn't exist, just that we're not privy to it.  So, in the event you'd like to share your experience and don't wish to make a public record with the proper authorities, you may not wish to submit a statement to HEAL for publication if concerned it could potentially become part of a public record where we weren't able to independently verify your claims.  But, you should consider creating your own website, blog, Youtube video(s), write a book, or find some independent way to share your experiences.  And, send us the link to any of that and we'll either share it on Twitter or if a program currently on the watch-list, add the link to the staff/info page.  We appreciate your understanding and support of the #FirstAmendmentRevolution.  And, while faith-based, COPE Ministries and the HEAL Mission, believe everyone acting in good faith will show the courage of their convictions by at least sharing in the under penalty of perjury format.  If you don't have the courage of your convictions and wish for us to assume all the risk, you are acting like the frauds we expose who fail to disclose all the details while asking their victims to assume all the risk for their "benefit".  If you turn around and demand that of us, you are a hypocrite.  We act in good faith and hold others to the same standards we hold ourselves.

"Trafficking can occur in many licit and illicit industries or markets, including in brothels, massage parlors, street prostitution, hotel services, hospitality, agriculture, manufacturing, janitorial services, construction, health and elder care, and domestic service." (From "...Addressing Human Trafficking of Children and Youth in the United States" report at: https://www.acf.hhs.gov/sites/default/files/cb/acyf_human_trafficking_guidance.pdf )  If you oppose human trafficking and don't want your children or loved ones trafficked for sex or labor, don't entrust their care to out-of-home placements and be careful not to let traffickers provide in-home care or services.

 

Residential treatment and wilderness "therapy" programs have been denounced by the National Institute of Health as being harmful to children and families as well as ineffective in dealing with teen problems. There are multiple resources that expose the fraud and abuse of this industry. Some authors to check out are Dr. Peter Breggin, Alexia Parks, and Maia Szalavitz. Dr. Peter Breggin is author of multiple books regarding appropriate treatment for teens (see Reclaiming Our Children by Dr. Peter Breggin). Alexia Parks authored "An American Gulag" exposing the "teen help" industry and Maia Szalavitz has written two great books exposing the fraud and abuse inherent in this industry, "Tough Love America" and "Help at Any Cost".

 

We suggest parents do not remove their children from their home environment for any reason as the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention reported that even when a severe or criminal issue is present with youth, a family home is the best environment for correcting the situation and encouraging proper socialization. (E-mail info@heal-online.org and request that report if no longer available online.) Leading expert in adolescent psychology and former head of the Department of Psychology at the University of California--Berkeley, Dr. Margaret Singer, has spoken out against these programs in great detail saying that they make a child's worst nightmare of abandonment come true and that the people who run these programs are slick businessmen with no training or expertise in helping teens appropriately. Maia Szalavitz, author of "Tough Love America", cites the National Institute of Health studies on these programs that have determined that they are harmful and not helpful to teens or their families. Szalavitz also stated on the Jan. 18th, 2005 episode of Montel Williams that even when children/teens pose an immediate threat to themselves or others that at most a short stay (1-4 weeks) in a local psychiatric hospital to deescalate the situation is what is needed followed by intensive out-patient family counseling.

 

For more information on this issue visit: http://www.heal-online.org/teen.htm.  On the HEAL website you will find links to lawsuits, news articles, and survivor websites detailing the abuses experienced at these facilities.  Also, please take a moment to read the open letter quoting government and private entities with their true intentions in these matters by visiting www.beyondbusiness.net/openletter.htm.  It is imperative that you DO NOT send your child to an out of state behavior modification program.  It is imperative that you DO NOT send your child to any program that limits or denies contact between you and your child at any point in their stay at the facility.  It is imperative that you DO NOT send your child to a facility that you yourself will not be monitoring on at least a weekly basis in person to monitor the treatment and well being of your child.  Be responsible, for the sake of your children.  

 

We recommend no one send children to a facility that matches any of the criteria on our warning signs list at www.heal-online.org/warn.htm. We have successfully exposed the abuses at Bethel Boys Academy (now closed), Bethel Girls Academy (now closed), CEDU Family of Programs (all programs now closed), Mountain Park Boarding Academy (now closed), and many others. We had proof of abuse at CEDU programs up for years prior to their being closed down on Friday, 3/25/05. The system sometimes takes too long to catch up with justice and truth. That's why we exist. We exist to warn and protect families from abusive behavior modification programs.

 

Also, we believe ALL programs outside of the US are suspect and ask that you read the U.S. State Department’s warning regarding international programs by clicking here.  Do not, under any circumstances, risk your child’s life in a program outside of the U.S. 

 

HEAL is not a referral service.  We do not advocate placement of children in unregulated, private and/or public, behavior modification programs or facilities.  Please do not contact us for referrals or approval of your subjecting a child to this corrupt and destructive industry.  

 

If you are unable to find the answers you are looking for, please visit: www.heal-online.org/faqs.htm and/or www.heal-online.org/help.htm

 

If you or your family were defrauded, abused, and/or subjected to human and civil rights violations, please get legal assistance now.  The statute of limitations varies from state to state.  You have a limited time to file a claim.  For a list of attorneys and attorney referral services that can help you in your pursuit of justice, click here.  For additional reporting resources, click here.

THE HEAL MISSION WATCH- LIST

Our watch-list begins with the segregated congregate care (i.e. group homes, boarding schools, residential and wilderness programs and retreats, cults, and similar entities) that are hypocritical and/or false prophets.  If you prefer to skip that list and see the expanding categories, scroll down or pick an option from the list in progress here: Vitamin/Supplement Industry  Animal Rights/Veganism Environmental Misinformation Exposed  Self-Defense Against Fraud Tips

 

The "schools"/programs listed on our site fall under three categories: Investigating, Suspect, and Confirmedly Abusive.   A program categorized as "Investigating" is a program that we have been contacted about and which we have been asked to research.  Being "investigated" by HEAL does not imply a program is fraudulent and abusive.  It simply means we were asked to research the program by families or officials who are considering placement at the facility or who have reason to believe HEAL should investigate and/or expose alleged fraud and abuse at the facility.  If a program is categorized as "Suspect" it means it meets one or more criteria (i.e. sister program of confirmedly abusive facility, shares staff with an abusive facility, or one or more complaints regarding the facility are on file with HEAL and/or proper regulatory and enforcement agencies, etc.).  A program categorized as "Confirmedly Abusive" matches multiple warning signs of an abusive facility, has been sued or faced official complaints, and/or HEAL has received two or more substantiated reports of fraud and abuse regarding the facility.  Understand that this is an incomplete list and that it is your responsibility to look heavily into the program(s) into which you consider placing your child.  Some of the programs listed below are international programs that have been found to be abusive.  And, some are programs which have been investigated and determined to be abusive by other organizations.  We have added links and brief details where applicable regarding known abuses and reports.

Decoding The List:

We have color-coded the three primary categories as follows:

Investigating-- Programs that we are investigating per the description provided above are listed in "Yellow".  For example, HEAL is currently investigating Youth Reach in Alabama.  So, in the list below you will see Youth Reach  written in yellow.  Sometimes programs that are confirmedly abusive remain on the investigating list until we have an opportunity to create a staff list and perform additional research substantiating reports of fraud and abuse.  We appreciate your patience.

Suspect-- Programs that are suspect per the description provided above are listed in "Orange".  For example, you will see Lyman Ward Military Academy/Southern Prep written in orange.  No complaints since the name change at time this was written (7/23/20), but that is subject to change as is this page.

Confirmedly Abusive--Programs that are confirmedy fraudulent and/or abusive per the description provided above are listed in "Red".  For example, you will see Provo Canyon School written in red as well as other facilities run by its current parent company, UHS, Inc

There are dozens of warning signs that a facility is fraudulent and abusive.  We have created a 5 point system to help parents determine if a program is fraudulent and abusive.  We have created a chart using the 5 point system to help identify fraud and abuse at residential and wilderness programs.  And, we have incorporated the chart to include our entire watch-list covering all categories referenced above.

The Five Point System:

Unlicensed--A "Yes" in the "unlicensed" point field below means that the program is not properly licensed to provide services it claims to provide.  A "?" in the "unlicensed" point field below means that we do not know if it is properly licensed and have been unable to verify licensure.  A "No" in the "unlicensed" point field means that the program appears to be properly licensed in all regards.

Restraint--A "Yes" in this point field means that the program engages in physical interventions with clients that may include violent restraint, physical abuse, or the use of pain to change behavior (i.e. Judge Rotenberg Center uses electro-shock devices to cause pain whenever a child is not perfectly on task (such as failing to make eye contact).  A "Yes" means that restraint is being used inappropriately and in instances that do not involve a legitimate imminent threat to a child's individual physical safety or the individual physical safety of others.  A "?" in the "Restraint" point field means that we do not know if it engages in physical interventions as described above.  A "No" in the "Restraint" point field means that we have no evidence suggesting the program engages in improper physical interventions.

Solitary--A "Yes" in this point field means that the program uses solitary confinement (aka isolation, observation, "time-out", investment, etc.) on clients.  Solitary confinement is a form of torture.  A "?" in this point field means we don't know if it uses solitary confinement or not.  A "No" in the "Solitary" point field means we have no evidence suggesting the program uses solitary confinement.

Incommunicado--A "Yes" in this point field means that the program restricts, monitors, censors, and/or denies contact between captive clients and the outside world (including immediate family).  Being held incommunicado is indicative of a high risk for serious abuses (including torture).  A "?" means we do not know if captive clients are held incommunicado by the program or not.  A "No" means we have no evidence suggesting the program holds clients incommunicado.

Deceptive--A "Yes" in this point field means that the program engages in deceptive marketing, false advertising, and/or other forms of fraud.  A "?" in this point field means that we don't know if it is engaging in deceptive practices.  A "No" in this point field means that we have no evidence suggesting the program engages in deceptive practices.

THE HEAL PROGRAM LIST

We have changed the list and removed the drop-down menu.  If you are looking into a specific program, please use the following tips.  If using a PC (not a Mac), hit "CTRL+F" and enter the name of the program then hit "enter key" or "return key".  If using a Mac (not a PC),  hit "Command+F" and enter the name of the program then hit "enter".  The Command key on a Mac is also known as the Apple Key or Clover Key.

The programs are in list form below and separated according to location.  For instance, all programs on our list operating in Alabama will be under "Alabama".  Again, we remind everyone this is an incomplete list and we whole-heartedly advise against enrolling any loved ones in any segregated congregate care program or facility (i.e. wilderness program, boarding school, behavior modification program/facility, residential treatment center, group home, or the like).

THE VITAMIN/SUPPLEMENT INDUSTRY: YOU NEED TO CHECK THEIR PATENTS.  HERE'S WHAT THAT WHOLE INDUSTRY IS ABOUT AND BASED ON: "And yet in another respect, many other fruits, vegetables, herbs, and seeds in addition to cranberries have been scientifically shown or are widely believed through apocryphal evidence, to have other beneficial health effects. In their natural forms, most of these fruits, vegetables, herbs, and seeds cannot be directly ingested (due to palatability as well as other concerns). Many of the extracts produced from them have only captured a portion of the bioactive compounds. There is thus a distinct need for a new processing method which can capture the full synergistic and beneficial activity of these plants in a palatable concoction which retains the beneficial activity of the natural forms, and also provides for easy transport, easy formulation into unit dosages, and long-term shelf life without the need for refrigeration...."  Source: US Patent # 6,440,467 found at  https://www.uspto.gov/patents-application-process/search-patents  Now, if the above doesn't persuade you that vitamins/supplements are a total scam, maybe you don't know what "apocryphal" means.  Apocryphal means highly doubtful but widely believed to be true.  Do a google definition search and that's what you will get when searching for "apocryphal".  So, if you find eating food not palatable and want a juiced or dehydrated tiny piece of real food in a pill that may or may not contain anything it claims because you ignore disclaimers when you shouldn't, then, perhaps you actually want to put unknown substances in your body rather than eat food which suggests you suffer from Pica.  Now, if you go to the patent search above and search for "apocryphal" you'll find more than that patent on supplemental food processing using that word to describe their "evidence".  The New York Times reported "The New York State attorney general’s office accused four major retailers on Monday of selling fraudulent and potentially dangerous herbal supplements and demanded that they remove the products from their shelves. The authorities said they had conducted tests on top-selling store brands of herbal supplements at four national retailers — GNC, Target, Walgreens and Walmart — and found that four out of five of the products did not contain any of the herbs on their labels. The tests showed that pills labeled medicinal herbs often contained little more than cheap fillers like powdered rice, asparagus and houseplants, and in some cases substances that could be dangerous to those with allergies."  Source:  https://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2015/02/03/new-york-attorney-general-targets-supplements-at-major-retailers/  So, if you know someone who takes them, break it to them gently and if you are currently taking them, you likely want to stop wasting your money and/or request a refund while submitting a complaint to the proper authorities. 

We have solely done outreach to vitaminshoppe.com in offering dietary supplement retailers and manufacturers a means to meet our minimum Honesty In Marketing Standards to be featured at http://www.churchofphilosophicalexploration.church/standards.htm should they meet the following criteria/requirements for "graduation" or upgrade in status: "In order to remove the dietary supplement market or that section from our site, we'd need all dietary supplements to include the following in their labeling: "Dietary supplements may not contain product described on label. Those with allergies or concerns about unidentified substances should avoid taking dietary supplements. Dietary supplements are at times synthetic so petroleum by-product and/or when organic simply small portions of juiced or dehydrated food some find unpalatable who may be suffering from Pica and need healthcare." Something along those lines and disclosing the actual patent number on any patents relied on for the products by the entire industry and/or your meeting said standard with your product line would result in placing you (if not the entire industry) on the Honesty In Marketing Standards page at http://www.churchofphilosophicalexploration.church/standards.htm. We look forward to hearing from you and you may alert Minister Angela Smith at angela@churchofphilosophicalexploration.org if you meet the criteria or wish to "Submit Feedback".

ANIMAL RIGHTS/VEGANISM  The animal rights movement and call for veganism is based on misleading and/or false information or a misunderstanding of where human rights are actually at as a matter of law.  Human beings who are deemed incompetent as a matter of law as a result of not recognizing the difference between right and wrong or truth and fiction become wards of the state and/or require a competent human be responsible for their care and supervision.  So, with nonhuman animals who do not understand or comprehend human systems of law and social expectations to keep the peace must have human guardians.  And, as a matter of law and practicality those guardians need a means of acquiring and maintaining resources to responsibly care for their wards (human or nonhuman).  And, for incompetent humans that often means sex and labor trafficking in segregated congregate care which often results in premature death.  So, it seems that nonhuman animals have the same rights as incompetent humans and require assistance in reporting criminal abuse and exploitation to the proper authorities who will then seize and/or transfer them to likely a similar storefront or service, but, maybe a good one that is actually ethical.  But, the point is nonhuman animals currently have equal rights with incompetent humans at law.  Even when it comes to euthanasia or "pulling the plug" where someone holds the power of attorney for a loved one that is human but incompetent or unable to make decisions for themselves.  So, to improve animal rights, improving the rights of imcompetent humans may be where to start.  Animals currently have equal rights to incompetent humans with exception that eating incompetent humans is illegal in most jurisdictions where eating other species is not.

And, given the majority of species (including plants) on the planet are omnivores, democratically speaking the omnivorous lifestyle wins and evolution of plants and animal species supports this for anyone who has studied zoology, anthropology, botany/gardening, and evolution.  Also, the vegans claim that they save lives by preventing animals from existing in the first place.  "The way a vegetarian saves animals is by reducing the demand for meat and causing fewer animals to be born into a harsh life owned by the meat industry, where callousness abounds and mercy is scant."  Source:  http://www.countinganimals.com/how-many-animals-does-a-vegetarian-save/  That's not saving lives, that's promoting extinction because you think not existing is better than existing if you have to live in those conditions.  And, it is pathetic because instead of putting time, energy, and resources into actually making the world more hospitable for all life, including nonhuman animals, you've decided to promote extinction and call that saving lives.  It's one of the most despicable things and made even worse by the environmental argument which PETA claims "Raising animals for food requires massive amounts of land, food, energy, and water and causes immense animal suffering.  It takes an enormous amount of water to grow crops for animals to eat, clean filthy factory farms, and give animals water to drink. A single cow used for milk can drink up to 50 gallons of water per day—or twice that amount in hot weather—and it takes 683 gallons of water to produce just 1 gallon of milk. It takes more than 2,400 gallons of water to produce 1 pound of beef, while producing 1 pound of tofu only requires 244 gallons of water. By going vegan, one person can save approximately 219,000 gallons of water a year."  Source: https://www.peta.org/issues/animals-used-for-food/meat-environment/    So, they argue there will be less animals because of reduced demand they won't be produced and you'll save resources for human use that would be used to care for the animals raised for human use.  But, the amount of food waste, including a lot of animal products (20% never make it to retail and go straight to landfills) annually, shows that it doesn't reduce production and just leads to waste.  Source: https://cok.net/food-waste-america/   So, not saving lives nor reducing production with the vegan lifestyle. 

In addition, PETA euthanizes more than 81% of their rescues.  Source: https://www.washingtonpost.com/national/religion/at-petas-shelter-most-animals-are-put-down-peta-calls-them-mercy-killings/2015/03/12/e84e9af2-c8fa-11e4-bea5-b893e7ac3fb3_story.html 

And, vinyl (aka "Pleather" or Faux Leather), gasoline, plastic, synthetic fertilizer, and more is made of petroleum and petroleum by-products which are animal-derived therefore not "VEGAN".  Sources: https://drillingmatters.iadc.org/more-than-a-fuel/ and https://www.ranken-energy.com/index.php/products-made-from-petroleum/ 

So, we believe we've effectively established above that nonhuman animals and incompetent humans have the same or basically the same rights right now so there is no need for an animal rights movement calling for equality or equal treatment of humans and animals because we are already treated equally in the eyes of the law with competency being the standard bearer.  And, since we support and revere life and accept that there is both joy and suffering in the spectrum that is existence, we support utilitarianism with humane living conditions and that abuses of both incompetent humans and nonhuman animals be reported to the proper authorities in the proper jurisdiction where the offenses occurred.  And, people who can't be bothered to do the work (nor share the wealth with actual farmers who could use the help to improve actual living conditions for the animals) and when they rescue animals just kill them because caring for them in their condition or natural state is too difficult can shut the fuck up.  Farms are beautiful, farmers are lovely, and nature is God's creation for which we are stewards and sowers not solely reapers.  So, it is COPE Ministries and the HEAL Mission's position that the animal rights movement/vegan movement is ignorant, hypocritical, deceptive, misleading, and deserving to be on this list.

ADDENDUM:

WHY YOU SHOULD BE AT LEAST OVO-LACTO VEGETARIAN AND REJECT VEGANISM By Minister Angela Smith   Vitamin B-12 is essential and deficiency causes a lot of issues including heart disease, Alzheimer's, and dementia.  Source: https://www.health.harvard.edu/blog/vitamin-b12-deficiency-can-be-sneaky-harmful-201301105780.  Vitamin B-12 is only available from animal-derived sources including eggs and milk.  Sources: https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/vitamin-b12-foods and https://www.theglobeandmail.com/life/health-and-fitness/ask-a-health-expert/how-can-i-get-enough-vitamin-b12-if-i-dont-eat-meat/article16777645/ Synthetic supplements for B-12 are not effectively bio-available and may not be absorbed.  In addition, the supplements are often derived from petroleum by-product which is actually derived from ancient animal remains so not vegan.  Sources: http://www.heal-online.org/thelist.htm#vitamin and https://hydrobuilder.com/nutrients-and-fertilizer/synthetic-nutrients.html and http://www.churchofphilosophicalexploration.org/animalfactsheet.pdf.  Therefore, the vegan lifestyle is definitively unhealthy.  But, if you eat plenty of eggs and dairy, you may get enough B-12 without eating meat too.    Spread the word!

If you care to debate me on any topic, join www.debate.org and challenge "heal247" (sans quotation marks) by entering "heal247" (sans quotation marks) in the "Opposition" field when you create the new debate.  Am I playing "devil's advocate"? You decide.   The Guardian reports that 97% of climate scientists agree that climate change is caused by human activity.[1]  The Guardian cites the study cited by most when using that statistic which is available here: https://iopscience.iop.org/article/10.1088/1748-9326/8/2/024024.  But, the overall consensus considering all climate scientist research puts the consensus that humans cause climate change at 32.6% according to that exact study.  There was a second part to the study, with a much smaller sample, which identified and then eliminated 35.5% from that sample since from the sample of the larger data those didn't take a position on whether humans had an impact on climate change and were disqualified from inclusion in the second part of the study for that reason.  So, the remaining 64.5% were split with 97.2% of that smaller sample supporting the position that climate change is caused by humans and 2.8% of that 64.5% saying they reject that position.  So, in full context of the study of the smaller sample, the actual percentage of those endorsing from that smaller sample is 62.56% if you include those who find the science yet undetermined.   Phytoplankton, land-based plants, and nonhuman animals reportedly make up most, if not all of that which significantly contributes to climate change.[2][3][4]  Arguably some sources are better than others, but, we should all think for ourselves freely and independently and not subject ourselves to believing bullshit as a result of undue influence.

And, before you write another check to Sierra Club, you should know they accepted over $20 Million in donations from oil and natural gas industry to attack the coal industry.  That money could've been used to start a green energy company and expand access to solar.  Know where your money goes.  Source: https://science.time.com/2012/02/02/exclusive-how-the-sierra-club-took-millions-from-the-natural-gas-industry-and-why-they-stopped/

SELF-DEFENSE AGAINST FRAUD TIPS

Fraud is way more common than many seem to realize.  So, to assist you with understanding how common the problem is and how our government does find fraud worthy of prosecution in tort and criminal law depending on evidence and direct victims reporting it to the proper authorities where they've discovered they are a victim within the statute of limitations and/or timeframe an individual of reasonable intelligence would've recognized the fraud.  Please see: https://oig.hhs.gov/reports-and-publications/archives/enforcement/state_archive.asp, https://www.atg.wa.gov/past-cases, https://www.atg.wa.gov/news/news-releases/Consumer%20Alert and https://oig.hhs.gov/fraud/enforcement/state/index.asp.  Now, those links with the above list and information resources should alert you that fraud is a serious problem.  And, academic fraud is also a serious problem that is ongoing because frauds are an ongoing problem and when one is stopped, that doesn't mean there aren't more out there that you may wish to exercise due diligence to avoid.  Here's some information on that: https://www.ftc.gov/tips-advice/business-center/guidance/avoid-fake-degree-burns-researching-academic-credentials  And, so now you should be fully aware that fraud is a serious problem and a threat to those who don't exercise due diligence (and/or their loved ones). 

So, in the event you don't trust anyone including the government, you should be fine because you don't trust anyone which would mean you are likely not trusting those who would deceive you for vicious purposes.  Now, if you don't trust a specific group and join a cult/tribe of some sort that also decides they distrust or even uses your distrust to "enemy of my enemy is my friend" you, then you are being a hypocrite or dishonest in regards to not trusting anyone.  But, if you trust as if you are an innocent babe without a caregiver you desperately need because of your own sheltered existence and lack of awareness that fraud and other crimes happen on a regular basis that law enforcement can't prevent, but, can and will respond to if there is sufficient evidence for a warrant or arrest, then you really need to either become more assertive in exercising due diligence and aware of the world around you and your own reasonable responsibility for yourself and/or anyone who is your dependent in any way.  There will never be a pre-crime unit like in "Minority Report" starring Tom Cruise in the USA and if anyone thinks about creating one, they will be violating the US Constitution and specifically Bill of Rights.  And, all the government requires of We the People is that we assume the responsibility granted to us by the US Constitution which are protected by the Bill of Rights and vice versa.  So, as citizens we must actively protect ourselves by not being distracted by shiny happy people defrauding us and take action to make sure our wallets or loved ones are not spirited away by frauds or human traffickers because "they seems so friendly and I was so emotional so I just signed the contracts without even reading them".  Read the contract should one exist and where one doesn't get a receipt.  If you don't understand the contract, don't sign it.  Take it to a lawyer and have them explain it to you, legal aid offices can help with that too if needed.  If the terms are described as "illusory" or "unconscionable", that means the contract/agreement is likely voidable on those grounds and evidence of fraud.  Regulation of corporations doesn't prevent malfeasance or corporate wrongdoing.  The same or similar rules apply where enough evidence exists for a warrant provided by a direct victim or witness to the crime/violation(s).  So, all the regulations in the world don't matter unless properly reported with often a direct victim who has suffered financial or bodily harm.  And, until all those who commit fraud or crime stop doing it on their own or are apprehended, we all need to be vigilant, but, not vigilantes.

This is intended to be helpful but no one, including anyone at HEAL Mission and COPE Ministries wishes to do your thinking for you nor all the specific research you may wish someone else would do that would be helpful to you before making any purchasing decisions for goods or services.  We research in our own time and as quickly as we can given limited resources ourselves.  And, we listen to victims and provide all opportunity to help educate the public about the risks involved in failing to exercise due diligence.  "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure."  What does that mean?  It means that if you spend a little more time asking questions and considering facts before purchasing goods and services that you might totally avoid the hassle of having to sue, file criminal charges, or consumer complaints later.  But, if you don't do that little bit of due diligence and critical thinking beforehand, a lot of frustration and possible injustice depending on when you realize you're a victim.  The links in the first paragraph can help get you started on more tips and ideas for what alerts to sign up for and through what office(s) in your state or jurisdiction.  But, if you don't trust the government, don't trust anyone else either.  In 2015, the report shows 21,995,000 employed by US Government.  Source: https://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/terence-p-jeffrey/21955000-12329000-government-employees-outnumber-manufacturing  And, the largest employer in the US is Wal*Mart with 1,500,000 employees.  Source: https://chicago.suntimes.com/2019/3/30/18395895/here-s-a-list-of-the-largest-employer-in-every-state   And, there are 331,000,000 people in the US.  Source: https://www.pbs.org/newshour/nation/3-ways-that-the-u-s-population-will-change-over-the-next-decade  That means about 7% of the US works for the government, or 7/100, 3.5/50, 1.75/25, average it at maybe 2 out of every 25 people work for the government.  So, if you want the government to enforce laws for your protection, you have to trust the government enough with that task by at least showing willingness to show up and report it in a timely fashion as well as help prevent crime by exercising personal responsibility including due diligence.  But, if you don't trust the government you should probably stay off the internet and if sincere about that probably stopped reading after maybe the first sentence of the second paragraph.

You have two options:

1.  Sufficiently protect yourself by exercising due diligence and avoiding becoming a victim of fraud while understanding it is rampant in many sectors including healthcare, academic fraud, and all sorts of scams.  Know what you are getting out of any contract in actual benefits (not illusory) before signing or paying anything to anyone.  Verify licenses, credentials, and check for online reviews. 

2.  Whether you reasonably exercised due diligence or not, once a victim don't deny it and throw tantrums as if in some cult, but, acknowledge it and file complaints with the proper authorities where a crime such as fraud (theft by deceit) or human trafficking has occurred.  And, know if the HEAL Mission and COPE Ministries can help, we will.  Truth and Justice is our main priority as both are names of God.

But, that's it.  There is no third option where you don't protect yourself, get hurt, and then just demand everyone prevent all possible harm that may occur to anyone else at all times through the legislative process and having other people assigned to monitor us all individually and collectively to make sure we're not victimizing each other in some way.  That's simply never going to happen and is really unreasonable to request or suggest otherwise.  Many of us go above and beyond in doing our part to protect our fellow citizens and support law enforcement.  But, if you require supervised care and a responsible adult that exercises due diligence to prevent any and all possible harm that may befall you, then may you find the level of support you require while understanding you are then admitting to incompetence at law most likely and may be stripped of rights along with relinquishing your responsibilities in the social contract that is the US Constitution and all applicable laws.  So, make sure you are responsible enough to report crimes or sue within the statute of limitations where otherwise you couldn't or didn't avoid becoming a victim through no fault of your own.  Sometimes shiny happy people can tempt even a poet with the heart of a mystic, but, not for long.  And, emotional growth is bullshit, people really need to work on critical thinking and honest reasoning.  Emotional growth happens in it's own way over time and if you prioritize emotions, you end up with what we're all dealing with now in the world of politics and often public discourse.  Prioritize critical thinking in business matters or any matter in which you may part with cash.  Feel good about the smart choice even if instant gratification followed by bitter disappointment seems good in the moment.  The rest is up to you!
