State regulation for psychics.

Apparently there are some charlatan psychics out there(what a shock). The states need to come in and separate the 'good' ones from the rip-off artists:

Does anyone know why this does not violate separation of church and state? How is someone giving money to Harold Camping because he can predict the future different than a psychic taking their money? Does this mean the state can regulate faith healers, prosperity pastors and other such predictors of the future? How can the legal system distinguish between psychic and religious activities?

Taxation is the price we pay for failing to build a civilized society. The higher the tax level, the greater the failure. A centrally planned totalitarian state represents a complete defeat for the civilized world, while a totally voluntary society represents its ultimate success. --Mark Skousen
