Kent Hovind’s attorney has filed motions to dismiss all of the counts against him. Counts 1-12 and 58 (12 counts of failing to pay FICA and withhold income taxes on employees and one count of threatening a Federal agent) are discussed in this motion, while counts 13-57 (46 counts of “structuring”) are discussed in this motion. But here’s my favorite part of his article discussing the charges:
I can only guess what God allowed this for but here are some of the options we have thought of so far: God is testing us like Job. God is punishing us for sin. God was testing other Christian leaders to see how they would react toward us. God is going to expose the evil in some of the lives of those opposing us. God wanted me to have more time to read and study. God is preparing us to be a better comfort to others.
Sounds pretty much like his seminar, throwing a bunch of crap at the wall and hoping some of it sticks. He missed the obvious one: this has nothing to do with God but only with the fact that you broke the law and now you’re being charged for doing so. And his defense boils down to this: “You didn’t tell us what we did wrong.”
