Did you read my post and think "well, yeah, every society has their loonies; that doesn't reflect thought that anyone in their right minds would take seriously!"?
Well, how about the BBC?
Lloyd, bless his Tory heart, has pointed out that an unnamed BBC show (which I suspect is The Real Hustle) has exposed a psychic, but, so as to avoid stepping on the toes of any delicate viewers, claimed that there were, in fact, very real psychics out there in the world, and so more is the crime, because these frauds were making them look bad!
Next up, Wiccan frauds, who charge for herbal healings. Those bastards! No real Wiccan healer would charge for their services!
