A blog entry from February 8th, starts off with the standards of truth and honestly you’d expect from a Christian:
Five years ago today I was sentenced to ten years in federal prison — three of them for praying for a man on the radio and five of them for taking our own ministry money out of our own ministry bank account to pay the ministry bills! Whoda’ thought it could happen in America? It actually might be funny if it were not happening to me!
Utter bollocks, as a simple Google search shows. Kent and Jo Hovind were charged with a total of 57 counts of tax evasion plus addition charges of:
- Filing an injunction against an IRS agent.
- Making threats against investigators and those cooperating with the investigation.
- Filing false complaints against the IRS for false arrest, excessive use of force and theft.
I don’t see anything about praying. What was that commandment again about bearing false witness?
