He just does not get the message – you are not above the PEOPLE’S law, dude.
A Pensacola evangelist known as Doctor Dino has long maintained that all of his ministry’s finances and property belong not to him, but to God, and that the Almighty’s belongings are not subject to humanity’s tax laws.
Naturally, the federal government disagrees with the good doctor, and in 2006 Kent Hovind was sentenced to a decade in prison for failing to report some $430,000 in taxable income and employee wages.
According to an Oct. 21 federal indictment filed against Hovind and Paul John Hansen — a Nebraska man known for his vigorous opposition of government tax and property laws — the duo has been charged with mail fraud and criminal contempt for interfering with the sale of Pensacola properties Hovind was forced to forfeit as a result of the 2006 case.
The indictment says that in 2011, Hansen filed liens on nine of Hovind’s forfeited properties on North Palafox Street, Cummings Road and Oleander Drive.
Hovind is scheduled to stand trial in Pensacola on Dec. 1, according to court records.
Fine by me if Hovind stays in jail though he still causes trouble there, such as filing a lawsuit against a website. The federal government found that Hovinds organization, which promoted young-earth Creationism, was not properly licensed or registered as a nonprofit, which resulted in his original legal troubles. As we see, that continues since he doesn’t like the Tax code either.
By the way, Hovind is NOT a doctor in any professional sense, being awarded his degrees by correspondence from unaccredited universities. By that comparison, I have doctorates in Cryptozoology and Parapsychology from Thunderwood College. Call me Dr. Hill.
