Sounds like a need for an improved security protocol

Rabi condemns release of purported Obama prayer (CNN).

You would think that supreme beings would offer better security arrangements. Or maybe they do and its the people who refuse to take advantage of them.

Since a supreme being is logically capable of decoding any encrypted message in any amount of time (a day is a thousand years/ a thousand years is a day), it follows that the only security concern is to avoid ambiguity. A standard preamble works: "Lord of Lords," or whatever.

So in future encode your messages as follows:

C = E (p0 + p, k) where p0 is the preamble, k a randomly chosen key and E something like AES.
