Below is an open letter sent to John Mellor, a faith healer from Australia:
Dear Mr Mellor,
If you can heal people, or if God somehow requires your intervention in people's lives to heal them, or by virtue of your ability to muster faith people are healed, I implore you to provide proof of the efficacy of your treatment, or desist.
The placebo effect is not enough to justify how much money is parted with by innocent people in the most desperate of conditions, not to mention the danger of those same people foregoing normal medical treatment to participate in your spiritual treatment.
