What? Sue the frauds for fraud?

British spiritualists protest change to their legal status

April 20, 2008

LONDON (AP) — Britain's clairvoyants, mediums and mystics foresee trouble ahead.

A small group of "spiritual workers" demonstrated in London on Friday against government plans to regulate their services with consumer protection rules. They fear the move could leave them open to lawsuits by disgruntled customers and troublesome skeptics.

"We live in a very litigious society," said Carole McEntee-Taylor, a spiritual healer and general secretary of the newly founded Spiritual Workers' Association. "There are frauds out there, but to tar everybody with the same brush is really naive."

Now, when they decide to apply the same principles to the frauds promising eternal happiness, or threatening eternal punishment, maybe we'll be making some progress.
