The Spanish Archdiocese of Seville has warned its faithful against the growing phenomenon of TV programs and advertisements featuring clairvoyants, witches and tarot card soothsayers.|
In its weekly newspaper, the archdiocese warned that such practices are "contrary to the virtue of religion" and "even more to be condemned when accompanied by the intention to harm another, whether or not they take recourse to the intervention of demons."
The Church authorities of Seville also recommended that faithful put their trust in "Providence with confidence as regards the future, and abandon all unhealthy curiosity in this respect."
