Two American citizens living in Colombia have been arrested after they were found to be offering “Miracle Mineral Solution” (MMS) to sick people living in that country, as well as in the United States and all throughout Africa.
Mark and Joseph Grenon were apprehended in the northern beach town of Santa Marta on charges of conspiracy to defraud the United States, as well for violations of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetics Act.
Mark Grenon, who describes himself as the archbishop of the Genesis II Church of Health and Healing in Bradenton, Florida – we have reported on this church in the past, and the persecution it has endured at the hands of the state – reportedly ignored a Miami court order from back in April that ordered him to stop selling MMS, which is legal in Bolivia.
Claiming that MMS has divine healing powers, the Grenons have continued to produce and sell it in violation of the state’s orders, for which they now face up to 17 years in prison if convicted of all charges.
It is important to note that after District Judge Kathleen Williams ruled against the Grenons, Mark reportedly agreed to stop selling MMS, only to change his mind not long after that.
“We will NOT be participating in any of your UNCONSTITUTIONAL Orders, Summons, etc.,” Mark wrote in an angry follow-up email to Judge Williams. “Again and again I have written you all that … you have NO authority over our Church.”
Whether you agree with this approach or not, a possible 17-year prison sentence for selling a product that people want to buy, and that many people say is helping them overcome serious disease, really is a form of tyranny that needs to be opposed.
