Bath Christian group’s ‘God can heal’ adverts banned
3 February 2012
A Christian group has been banned from claiming that God can heal illnesses on its website and in leaflets.
The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) said it had concluded that the adverts by Healing on the Streets (HOTS) - Bath, were misleading. . . .
[The Christian group] HOTS Bath said . . . “All over the world as part of their normal Christian life, Christians believe in, pray for and experience God’s healing . . .”
The group said it had tried to reach a compromise, “but there are certain things that we cannot agree to - including a ban on expressing our beliefs”. . . .
