    that is just more lies and accusations , and proof is his charges have been dismissed and he did more than 10 years for bogus charges by liberals and liars and real thieves and lawlessness . now there isn't anything new under the sun.

    I wonder if you will ever admit that you were mistaken for making these claims. Who knows.

    The charges that were dropped were for crimes that he may have committed while in jail.

    "Hovind, 61, is approaching the end of his sentence for failing to report some $434,000 in taxable income and employee wages, but he is now facing a new suite of charges on allegations that he tried to stymie the government's efforts to collect on his outstanding debt."

    Those are the charges that were dropped. The original tax evasion convictions that landed him in jail to begin with were never dropped nor were they dismissed.

    If that was the case, why couldn't his lawyer show this?

    I can't believe this. I got the same thing on the other website. Hovindicators making ridiculous denials. Here's an original news story from the 2006 conviction.

    "'Dr. Dino' guilty on all counts; Couple could get more than 200 years
    Pensacola evangelist and tax protester Kent Hovind winked at his wife and gave her a reassuring smile as he was led away to jail.
    Jo Hovind clutched the necktie he had been wearing. She kept her eyes on her husband until he was out of sight. A 12-person jury deliberated for 2? hours on Thursday before finding the couple guilty of all counts in their tax-fraud case.

    Kent Hovind, founder of Creation Science Evangelism and Dinosaur Adventure Land in Pensacola, was found guilty of 58 counts, including failure to pay $845,000 in employee-related taxes. He faces a maximum of 288 years in prison."

    Hovind also got in trouble for failing to pay his own personal taxes.

    He is a convicted tax cheat.

    Case closed.

    Sentence served.

    He and his supporters should move on with their lives, and try to stay more tightly tethered to the truth.

    Yep, and a Florida newspaper posted online (can still be found?) conversations between him and Eric conspiring to hide assets from the Feds. Real class act, those two.

    Again, I have to ask.

    What is this fixation* with Kent Hovind?

    * For those who can't handle that word, use "fascination."

    So he really didn't make over 200 withdrawls from the bank that were all just under $10k? He really did pay payroll taxes on behalf of his employees?

    The fascination is with Hovind's very apparent psychological problems and how it plays out amongst his followers. It is like the ant farm version of watching a cult go about its business.

    And how did it play out with the Bakkers and Jimmy Swaggert's followers?

    Or don't you know?

    Train wrecks are entertaining and especially so, when the train was thought to be one that could never ever go off the tracks.

    Bill Cosby is an example, what happened at Penn State is an example, what happened (can't remember his name) with that famous TV preacher out west who preached so much about the sins of homosexual behavior and it turns out he was in a homosexual relationship. Kenny is another example of the same.

    When the public persona in people in the public eye is blown out of the water, it tends to attract attention.

    I found Oral Roberts' followers to be more interesting. My grandmother mercifully passed a few months ago, and in digging through her finances the family found out that she had sent a tidy sum to Oral Roberts over the years. It sickens me to think of how his "send me money or I'll die" took money out of the pockets of little old ladies. At the same time, I am fascinated by how con men go about their craft.

    Hovind goes beyond even that. Hovind is like the con man who conned himself. Also, the deliciousness of the overly righteous being hoisted on their own petard is sometimes too good to pass up.

    If hell exists, I'm sure there's a special spot for people like this.
