False Advertising

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/False_advertising “False advertising is the use of false, misleading, or unproven information to advertise products to consumers. The advertising frequently does not disclose its source. One form of false advertising is to claim that a product has a health benefit or contains vitamins or minerals that it in fact does not. Many governments use regulations to control false advertising.”

These standards are in place to protect the public from those that would take advantage.  What if, in exchange for special treatment such as tax exemption, we apply these standards to religions as well?  Meaning they would not be allowed to disseminate false, misleading, or unproven information.

Question:  Should religions be allowed to make any false, misleading, or unproven claims, in order to attract and hold members?
