I am writing in response to the headline article you published in the November 7 issue of the North Somerset Times concerning the boycotting of this psychic fair held in Nailsea at the Scotch Horn Leisure Centre on Sunday, November 11. I would give my full support to all that has been expressed by Mrs Ponsonby, chairman of Nailsea Town Council. I am a Christian of over 40 years standing and while I appreciate that people are often drawn to an event like this out of mere curiosity nevertheless many are quite unaware of the danger of going to such a presentation. The Bible speaks out against such practices and warns that they are offensive to God.Regarding Remembrance Sunday, it seems most unfitting to hold such an event on a day when the nation are remembering those who have given their lives in two world wars and other conflicts still happening today in Iraq and Afghanistan One of the treasured verses used in Remembrance services is from John chapter 15:"Greater love has no-one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends." Those of our countrymen and women who paid the supreme sacrifice did this we believe to make this a better world to live in.Therefore to hold such an event as a psychic fair on Remembrance Day is a sign of great disrespect to those who we seek to remember with thanksgiving in giving their lives for their country.
