Australian chiropractor Laurence Tham to present for US anti-vaccine chiropractic group

One would think that the past year of embarrassment for Australian anti-vaccine chiropractors would be enough for some pause for thought. But, I guess, when someone has the capacity for anti-vaccination belief, one can think anything is appropriate.

Recently the Flying Floreanis™ visited an anti-vaccine chiropractic religious event in California – CalJam – run by well-known deranged chiropractor, Billy DeMoss. Jennifer Barham-Floreani and her husband Simon Floreani even had their pictures taken with anti-vaccine king-pin Andrew Wakefield, as well as the barking mad DeMoss – that’s one huge F-U to the Chiropractic Board of Australia right there.

I guess it’s because Australian chiropractic hasn’t found itself embroiled in enough mockery-laced opprobrium that go-get-’em, practice building obsessed chiropractor Laurence Tham has decided to go over to California to present at DeMoss’ Dead Chiropractic Society (if only, right?). He even tags DeMoss in his post:

Tham 17 DCS June 4 2014Regular readers, or followers of Australian chiropractic, would remember Tham from such posts as, Anti-vaccine chiropractors 41 – The Wellness Evangelicals,  in which we saw that Tham, a member of the Chiropractors’ Association of Australia (of course), is/was a member of the anti-vaccination fundamentalist pressure group, the (former) Australian Vaccination Network. Tham is also heavily involved in the Australian Spinal Research Foundation, a research organisation heavily imbued with anti-vaccinationism. In the post we also saw that Tham was effusive in his praise for Australia’s prime anti-vaccine hatemonger, Meryl Dorey. Tham did take some notice after I published that post. This is what you now see when you click on his video which promotes Dorey:

This video should have never existed

So I do find it odd that Australian chiropractors who are well aware of the damage their anti-vaccinationism has done to their profession persist in hanging out with people of the calibre of DeMoss.

As a reminder, let’s see what DeMoss has come out with of late. Chiro pride, folks. Chiro pride.

Nothing like a bit of exploitation of your underage marks [redactions mine]?

About reasonable hank

I’m reasonable, mostly.

    I wonder if ACDC (the band, duh.) have their font trade-marked. If so could be a field day for lawyers and a bad day for chiroquactors. 🙂

    Co presenter Simon Senzon has an agenda as well. He is part of the Integral Institute and the interesting Ken Wilber who with collegues is convinced he has discovered the next wave of esoteric Buddhism called ‘The Fourth Turning’ which will be the next uncompromising, ephemeral ‘philosophy’ to re anchor ourselves down to the supernatural and its enlightening influence on evidence gathering, conspiracy theory, poor research and falling clinical practice standards. Most Chiropractors have absolutely no idea that their profession is being defined by the personal beliefs of a small minority without their consent. We are so familiar with a ‘vitalist’ philosophy that we don’t pause to question exactly what it is, that it requires no proof and therefore is fertile ground for charlatans and their credulous audience.
