More from the anonymous person running FreeKentHovind dot com:
It is never ending with the people at Kent Hovind and Jo Hovind v USA – IRS. Once again, facebooker RLBaty continues to make defamatory comments about Kent Hovind and his family. This time, RLBaty read our article, “EXPOSED : Hovindology and Kent Hovind v USA – IRS” where we pointed out that he/she is trying to create rumors about Kent Hovind having a girlfriend on the side and pinning the Hovind family against each other with lies RLBaty conjured up.
Now, RLBaty is suggesting that Kent Hovind supporters are the ones bringing Hovind’s family in to the battle (which was never the case) and that Jo Hovind may or may not take Kent Hovind back (because of the false rumors RLBaty conjured up).
“Another diversion,… it is appropriate to offer alternative explanations as to what is going on.” Seriously, is RLBaty calling his defamatory comments an alternative explanation?
If the public who want the truth are visiting Kent Hovind and Jo Hovind v USA – IRS facebook page for information on Kent Hovind’s case, beware – it is full of lies *cough* I mean alternative explanations.
Let’s read RLBaty’s entire comment so Kent Hovind supporters are not blamed for taking the lie *cough* alternative explanation out of context…
“(In regards to article, “EXPOSED : Hovindology and Kent Hovind v USA – IRS“) Another diversion, but since Kent and his people continuing to bring up the family angle, and the family is conspicuously refusing, so far, to openly and honestly address these important public issues, it is most appropriate to offer alternative explanations as to what is going on.
We may never get to the truth about what the relationship was and is regarding Kent and other women, but we might be able to watch closely and see how such relationships might develop, especially if he ever gets out of custody.
Will Jo take him back and will they, as Rudy Davis/LoneStar1776 keeps harping on, ever sleep together again?
So far Jo has been successfully sequestered despite her and the family being so often brought up for discussion.
They say truth is stranger than fiction – and this is a prime example. It goes to show people who propagandize the lie that Kent Hovind was put in prison because he was a tax protester, or that he never paid taxes, etc… etc… are the same type of people who want to hurt anyone they can stands for the TRUTH and unashamedly professes their LOVE FOR THE LORD – why do these atheists try to hurt Believers in Christ?… Because they hate God.
John 15:18 – If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.
- Kent is a tax protester. He sought out opinions from three people back in 1996 to bolster his belief that he is not liable to pay income tax. See the documents at the Your Tax Matters Partner blog.
- Kent is a tax evader. (1) IRS agent M.C. Powe testified at the 2006 trial (see pages 157 ff.) that she had to seize vehicles from Kent Hovind in 1996 to make up a tax deficiency from 1989 to 1994. Hovind had not filed a personal income tax return for any of those years. (2) Both Kent and Jo Hovind were found liable for approximately $3 million in back taxes and fines for failure to pay personal income tax from 1998 to 2006. That assessment was confirmed in an unpublished 2014 decision by the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals.
- Kent is a sovereign citizen. In 1998, he and Jo filed a document called POWER OF ATTORNEY AND REVOCATION OF SIGNATURE with the Escambia County (FL) court. This document is literally chock-full of Sovereign Citizen rhetoric, complete with calls to the Uniform Commercial Code and referring to the “united States” [sic] It is signed by Kent and Jo Hovind, SUI JURIS, JUS SANGUINUS, JURE CORENEA. (See document here.) This is standard sovereign citizen rhetoric. Moreover, Kent Hovind’s Very Bestest Friend Ernie Land said he’s familiar with the National Liberty Alliance’s Quo Warranto but they have: “backed off a great deal. They were helping me at one point and then I think once Terry [Trussell] got arrested on frivolous charges down there in the leadership role, they kind of backed away from us. Probably because they’re fighting the battle in other areas. I don’t know why. I just know that they broke off communication on Kent Hovind. But ultimately the goal is Free Kent.” (at 31:30) The NLA is a Sovereign Citizen group and the “Quo Warranto” is a classic Sovereign Citizen document of absolutely no use in the U.S. justice system.
- Kent was put into prison for (among other things) 12 counts of tax evasion for failure to pay income and Social Security tax for his employees.
It’s not about religion. It’s about a man who has made a point of evading the payment of income tax due and owing for himself and his employees for years and years. If this were truly about religion, I would have expected Ken Ham of Answers in Genesis to be in jail, but he’s not.
Let me conclude with a passage of scripture from Matthew 17:24-27:
24 After Jesus and his disciples arrived in Capernaum, the collectors of the two-drachma temple taxcame to Peter and asked, “Doesn’t your teacher pay the temple tax?”
25 “Yes, he does,” he replied.
When Peter came into the house, Jesus was the first to speak. “What do you think, Simon?” he asked.“From whom do the kings of the earth collect duty and taxes—from their own children or from others?”
26 “From others,” Peter answered.
“Then the children are exempt,” Jesus said to him. 27 “But so that we may not cause offense, go to the lake and throw out your line. Take the first fish you catch; open its mouth and you will find a four-drachma coin. Take it and give it to them for my tax and yours.”
Kent Hovind causes offense because he fails to pay taxes. He should pay attention to the words of the man he calls Lord and stop offending people because he believes he is exempt from paying taxes due and owing.
