The person who runs FreeKentHovind dot com is frothing mad at this site and s/he is letting everyone know about it.
From January 28:
The people running Kent Hovind and Jo Hovind v USA – IRS and Hovindology have lied about Kent Hovind time and time again – and recently it has gotten worse. They are spreading disgusting and false rumors about Kent Hovind all over the internet saying Kent Hovind has a girlfriend on the side and they are “interested” in what Hovind’s family has to say about it.
Remarks from Kent Hovind and Jo Hovind v USA – IRS
“Kent and his people bring the family back into it with Kent and Rudy promoting the idea that Gea is Kent’s adoptive daughter instead of his girlfriend.
I am still waiting to hear from Eric, Kent A., Tanya, Marlissa, Danielle and especially Jo about that.
Screenshot proving Kent Hovind and Jo Hovind v USA – IRS are trying to cause confusion by creating lies:
The woman in question is Gea, a young woman that writes to Kent asking for his guidance. Kent explains that Gea has no family and that Gea looks up to Kent like a father. Kent further explained that Gea is his “adopted daughter” (a term of endearment).
The owner of Kent Hovind and Jo Hovind v USA – IRS facebook page is indeed an atheist (that is why they are comfortable creating filthy lies trying to cause family turmoil and confusion). Case in point – The owner of Kent Hovind and Jo Hovind v USA – IRS will not answer the simple question “Should government take the place of Christ and God?”…
It is our duty as Christian’s to stand up for our Brother in Christ and expose corruption and lies.
You know, I (Deana Holmes) am one of the administrators of Kent Hovind and Jo Hovind v USA – IRS and RL Baty and I disagree on this. My opinion is that Kent is using Gea Ambrosia for his own personal ends. I don’t think Kent sees her as a possible girlfriend.
As for the simple question of “Should government take the place of Christ and God?” I would offer this from Romans 13:
13 Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. 2 Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves. 3 For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and you will be commended. 4 For the one in authority is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for rulers do not bear the sword for no reason. They are God’s servants, agents of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer. 5 Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also as a matter of conscience.
6 This is also why you pay taxes, for the authorities are God’s servants, who give their full time to governing. 7 Give to everyone what you owe them: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.
This is not a matter of government being in the place of Christ and God. Rather, it’s a matter of Kent being subject to the governing authorities. He refuses to put himself under law, but instead acts like a lawless man and whips up his followers with his baseless claims.
I’d also note the following from the Constitution of the United States, Art. VI, para. 3:
The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.
We don’t have a religious government here in the USA and that’s the way the Founders intended it. They had seen for themselves what centuries of religious wars would do and didn’t want that here.
If people want a religious government, I’d suggest perhaps Saudi Arabia or Iran. Oh…not YOUR religious government…
As for the “filthy atheist” argument, it reminds me of Scientology’s old argument that I was a religious bigot for opposing the cult of greed and power (when I wasn’t taking payouts from Big Pharma, that is). Calling people names doesn’t help at all, anonymous Hovind promoter.
