State Orders Evangelist To Stop Selling “Miracle Water”

The state is again going after television evangelist Leroy Jenkins over his selling of so-called “miracle water” which he claims has healing powers.

A judge in Columbus last week ordered Jenkins to stop selling the water and scheduled a court hearing for July second on the state’s request for a preliminary injunction.

The Ohio Department of Agriculture says the water, drawn from a well on Jenkins’ former Healing Waters Cathedral property in Delaware, is contaminated with coliform bacteria.

Last fall, Jenkins was fined $200 for lacking a license to sell the water. Jenkins decided not to get a license and said he would stop distributing the water.

But agriculture department spokeswoman Melanie Wilt says an undercover agent recently bought water from Jenkins and it tested positive for coliform.

Jenkins’ attorney says the water is not sold, but donations are accepted. He says nobody suggested people should drink the water.
