Healing On The Streets #fundie dailymail.co.uk

A Christian group has been banned from claiming it can heal people after complaints to the advertising watchdog.
Healing on the Streets - Bath (HOTS) stages regular sessions outside the city’s abbey and says 'scores of people' have been 'physically healed' as a result of its work.

But Christians have reacted furiously to the decision, saying the ASA is trying to ban the 'basic Christian belief that God can heal illness'.
The watchdog has now told HOTS not to make claims which stated or implied that, by receiving prayer from their volunteers, people could be healed of medical conditions.

It was also ruled that the group should not refer to medical conditions in their adverts 'for which medical supervision should be sought'.

In a statement, the group said: "It seems very odd to us that the ASA wants to prevent us from stating on our website the basic Christian belief that God can heal illness."
