And spiritualism and Wicka are as valid religious choices as any. We are non-denominational at U.M. It's the nature of a forum like this one that deals in the mystic side of life.
That's not true. Some people become dependant on them and refuse to make a life choice without consulting. There are many cases of people handing over thousands of pounds to feed a dependency. Usually triggered by a traumatic experience in their life from what I observed. By pretending to be psychic a fortune teller is basically a making fraudulent transaction, therefore praying on people's beliefs.
The problem is, how can you regulate someone in their claims? You can't create a test for something that's not been proven to exist, so it is very difficult.
Here's a more recent article on the crackdown in the US I recently read http://www.bbc.co.uk...canada-11409477
