Mark Taylor, the Chief Executive of the Society of Homeopaths has written to William Shawcross, Chair of the Charity Commission in protest at the submission by the Good Thinking Society (GTS) demanding that all charities dealing in complementary medicines be removed from the charitable register.
The letter, which is reproduced below, rejects the assertion by the sceptics organisation GTS that projects such as the Maun Homeopathy Project, that treat patients in Botswana, should have their charitable status withdrawn. GTS gave the Charity Commission less that 24 hours to comply or it would take them to the High Court. The Charity Commission ignored GTS.
In the letter, Taylor sets out the case for homeopathy, why these charities offer public benefit and condemns GTS for ‘ the PR stunt and spectacular aversion to taking into account any evidence that undermines their own prejudices and interests.'
