Creationism theme park caught in tax dispute
A federal judge has approved the seizure of a dinosaur theme park developed by one of America's favorite biblical creation teachers and lecturers.

According to a report in the Pensacola News-Journal, a recent ruling from U.S. District Judge Casey Rogers ordered that nine of 10 properties linked to the Dinosaur Adventure Land launched by Kent Hovind, who also founded Creation Science Evangelism, can be seized.

Hovind, known affectionately as "Dr. Dino," however, now is living in a small federal prison cell in South Carolina – serving a 10-year sentence for failing to collect and pay withholding taxes

, obstructing tax laws and other related charges. His diminutive wife, Jo, the bookkeeper for the Hovinds' Creation Science Evangelism ministry in Pensacola, was convicted of evading bank-reporting requirements and began serving a one-year sentence in January at a minimum security prison camp in ...

"This guy" is Kent Hovind. He is a faithful, zealous, evangelist of almighty God. He is not hiding behind his religion, he is shining his light before all men. His priority is not "making money" his priority is disproving evolution and making an argument for the Christian account of creation. He had a ministry dedicated to this and had ministers that supported this effort. These ministers he gave love offerings to as the Lord made them available. Caesar says, they're not ministers, they're employees and so Mr. Evangelist you must be a publican and collect taxes on my behalf. Kent Hovind chose not to be a publican, which he should have the freedom to do in a free country. He also chose to withdraw cash from his accounts in increments of less than $10,000 without reporting it to Caesar (this constitutes the bulk of the charges). In a free country he ought to be able to do this. Finally, he prayed against his enemies and the IRS took this as a threat. Therefore, not being a publican, withdrawing money from his own account and praying to God = 10 years in prison.
Jeff, that was extremely well written and I applaud you for posting that. It is more proof that this country is turning their back on God and punishing His people!

Give unto him what is his but don't steal what is the Lord's or the Lord's servants to give to Caesar. If Caesar needs more money, he can always print it.

Jeff, How does our freedom of religion apply to this guy making money and falsely trying to hide behind religion to do it??? If this were the case then anyone who attends church should never Pay taxes? I like that idea but what about Caesar???
