Dr. Dunnit gets ten years
Kent Hovind, aka Dr. Dino, was sentenced to ten years in jail on Friday for tax evasion, with a three year probation when he finally gets out. His comments in the court only go to show that he’s still remorseless and still willing to milk his followers for all he can get:
If it’s just money the IRS wants, there are thousands of people out there who will help pay the money they want so I can go back out there and preach.
And people still support this guy? I think it’s perfectly ironic that he will now be a long term guest in a facility funded by those who do obey the law and pay their taxes.
And before you start telling me that he’s a harmless old man who only wanted to spread the word of god and shouldn’t be bound by law, let me remind you of a few things. He lives in a country where the privileges that are afforded to him are paid for by those who obey the law, yet he feels he does not need to contribute, despite claiming those privileges. He left his employees without medicare or social security during the time they were employed by him, and he potentially involved them in a serious breach of the law. He got his wife involved and now she faces years of jail time too. He lied to his constituents about everything from money to evolution… what else did he lie to you about? This is not a man who deserves your support, so move your faith over to someone else who is doing some good for the world and not leading people astray.
Your god obviously wants Hovind punished. So should you.
