Default Kent Hovind Legal Update

Letter from Eric Hovind

Dear Friends,
As many of you know, the past several years have been a whirlwind of activity for Creation Science Evangelism and the Hovind family. In November of 2006, my dad, Dr. Hovind, was convicted on three federal charges, and in January of 2007 was sentenced to ten years in federal prison. Despite the bad press, and the many misunderstandings, I am convinced that my dad is totally innocent of the charges brought before him. Currently he has served two and one-half years of his ten-year sentence and is in South Carolina at the Edgefield Prison Camp. My mother was also convicted on one charge, and in July of 2007 was sentenced to one year and a day in prison. However, she was granted a stay request pending the outcome of an appeal. On January 1, 2009, I received the notice that the 11th Circuit upheld every decision made by the district court and now my parents are both imprisoned... more here:

You know what I am sick of? The inevitable responses about Kent Hovind breaking the law.

Why do we pray for men in other countries who stand up for truth and are persecuted, shot, killed, dismembered, imprisoned etc, but when someone in our own country does it (I'm pretending I am american for 5 minutes), heaps of people say "Oh, he was a King James nut, and should have paid his taxes, and he should be in jail". God bless the man for standing up against a corrupt government. And God bless him for his persecution which he endures.

Anyone see a double standard below... nahhh, couldn't be.

Former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle withdrew from consideration for a Cabinet post AFTER it was found he owed $140,000 in back taxes and fines. Four prominent Democratic senators spoke out publicly in support of Daschle. On Feb 2, 2009, the White House called Daschle's tax debt a "serious mistake," but announced that Obama "absolutely" supports his nomination to be his Secretary of Health and Human Services.

Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner won confirmation to his Cabinet post under Obama -- running the agency that runs the Internal Revenue Service -- only AFTER paying $34,000 in back taxes that were discovered owed during the administration's vetting of him.

Nancy Killefer, who was in line to become the Obama's first "Chief Performance Officer," (!) withdrew from consideration after it was disclosed that she had failued to pay unemployment compensation tax. She hadn't paid the lien filed in 2005 for a year and a half.

Ron Kirk, President Barack Obama's nominee for trade representative also has a history of tax problems—The Senate Finance Comittee reports that Kirk, a former mayor of Dallas, owes roughly $10,000 in back federal taxes and has finally agreed to pay them. At the same time, Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-Mont.) says the ex-mayor is the right man for the post of trade representative, and he will try to move the nominee's confirmation along quickly... (?)

Well, if you are a strong supporter of abortion, embryonic stem cell research, the banning of Intelligent Design or Creationism in schools, displays of religion in public buildings and parks, banning firearms, and most importantly Socialism.... you can probably get away with not paying taxes. You might even get a Cabinet position in the current administration.

But if you go to high schools and colleges across the nation and teach people the truth, somebody is going to pick up the phone and call the IRS on you.

Now we know why Democrats don't mind raising taxes-- they don't pay them.

It's OK, I bet Kent will lead dozens of prisoners to the Lord. You can't keep a good man down.

UPDATE, need to add another one to the list...

Obama's Health and Human Services nominee Kathleen Sebelius recently corrected three years of tax returns and paid more than $7,000 in back taxes....

Yep, I've had at least a half dozen people criticize my support for Hovind because he supposedly broke the law. It's completely rediculous tbh. I wish I could take his place in prison so that he could continue to teach creation science.

For Jesus' sake,
Stephen

Did you see Kent Hovind's letter at that link? Here is a portion of his letter:

Quote:
Meanwhile, the assistant U.S. attorney continues to attempt to seize the ministry property. The government figured that the "damages" our "structuring" caused was $3,500, yet they want to seize $430,000 from me based on Title 21 drug laws! Because I do not have the money, they want to seize and auction off the ministry property! There are nearly twenty-five people living on the premises that would be displaced. Pray for Eric and the church attorney to have wisdom to stop this.

Unbelieveable, Daschle owed $140,000, Geithner $34,000, and Kirk $10,000. These guys are running around free and the IRS is not trying to take their property.

I'm thinking maybe Hovind needs a new lawyer.

I thank God our Father and our Lord Jesus Christ for brothers like Kent Hovind. His seminars (seven part series) have been a huge blessing to me! The LORD have used them to strengthen my faith, and even my unsaved little brother (who claims to be saved but I believe not because he at first couldn't believe Jesus was the ONLY way, is VERY worldly, doesn't care about the things of God, and has no Holy Spirit conviction) enjoyed them. I guess all I can do for now is to continue praying to our LORD for our brother Kent Hovind.
