It’s Tuesday again, and Jesus says it’s time for you to die. This time it’s one of Jesus’ chosen few offering you that one-way trip to eternity:
LOS ANGELES (KABC) —
Earlier in 2016, Eyewitness News got an inside look at the “Church of Bleach,” where believers claim their “miracle potion” can cure anything from cancer to the common cold.
The Genesis II Church of Health and Healing believes that MMS, which is essentially industrial bleach, is a religious sacrament.
At the center is the Genesis II Church of Health & Healing.
From ABC News: “Jim Humble, is a former Scientologist who claims he’s a billion-year-old god from the Andromeda galaxy.” He has made claims for his miracle cure for its ability to cure prostate cancer, brain cancer, and autism.
The “cure” is little more than an industrial bleach product, administered in small doses. The results have not been small:
When used as directed, consumers mix the sodium chlorite solution with an acid like citrus juice. This produces chlorine dioxide, which is an industrial bleach typically used for stripping textiles and for water treatment. Consuming high doses of the mixture as recommended on the label can cause symptoms like nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and severe dehydration.
Despite the drawbacks mentioned, the “cure” does not seem to effect any actual cure. Silvia Nash died after ingesting a few drops of the potion. She had been told it would prevent malaria. Husband Doug Nash now claims the potion killed his wife, although an autopsy could not determine the cause of death.
Do people still believe in miraculous cures pitched by religious charlatans? Does Trump have a wiener?
Keep reading. And may Jesus have mercy on our souls.
