Two sons of Mark Grenon, founder of the church, have been taken into custody and are currently in a jail in Tampa. We have not yet learned what charges, if any, have been filed against them. Natural News spoke with Mark Grenon by phone earlier today, and he confirmed he is in Colombia and expecting to be arrested and extradited at any moment, and says he will not resist the extradition order but will stand his ground in court and argue for First Amendment protections for the Genesis II Church.
In addition to arresting his two sons under false pretenses, the United States government also seized the Genesis II Church bank accounts yesterday, denying the church access to funds that might be used for its own legal defense. This is one of the key elements of government tyranny: When they terrorize you with false arrest, they also seize your financial assets so you are unable to defend yourself against the full force of the government, which has access to unlimited funds to prosecute you.
