    Looks like they got bad advice and tried to skirt the law, too bad for them, the IRS is fairly specific about what is and what isn't a minister.

    So I guess the "museum" is closing?

    This thread is about Jo Hovind and she was not accused of the defining of a minister issue as you suggest.

    The "museum" will likely close as the United States Government will own property that is used for preaching Creation science according to the Bible. Since the government is opposed to Jesus Christ, I doubt they will continue to operate the facility and they will likely sell it.

    Thanks for the update, Rufus. I wonder how many wives of crooked politicians should be in prison who aren't, hmm? Yet heaven help a Christian wife who submits to her husband. Ironic. Anyway, I'll be praying.

    Thank you for those points and prayer for this dear Christian woman. I pray Christians are noticing and considering the "enhanced sentencing" stuff. When she committed these "crimes" under the guidelines set-up on the date of the infractions she would've received 6 months max. New sentencing guidelines were implemented post-infraction, and the prosecution(wanted 10 years!) and the judge (settled on 1) didn't think that 6 months would be long enough to properly punish/rehabilitate one of the worst criminals in the world...someone the judge considers to be a "tax protestor". In today's world you can be found guilty of perjury, and obstruction of justice and spend 0 time in jail. Take cash out of your account in amounts the government doesn't approve of or without filling out the proper form...that'll get you one year in federal prison.

    Those two got what they deserved, they broke the law, now they're in jail. Please, stop trying to make them into saints.

    may they BOTH rot in jail.

    WOW!!!! No wonder the world holds Christianity in such "high esteem"!!! (Sarcasm - just in case you missed it )

    With a friend like Ex Fundy, one sure has no need of enemies!

    Nah, I think the Hovinds did enough for Christianity's esteem on their own.

    nowhere are women told to submit to their husbands when breaking the law. Should she have "submitted" to her husband if he was involved in serial killings?:BangHead:

    Again, this thread is NOT about Kent Hovind and if it were, Kent is not a serial killer. He was charged with a paper crime.

    Jo Hovind was not convicted for submitting to her husband.

    From the article I read, I can't see what exactly she did wrong. The article said she was a "tax protester." What was HER crime? Obviously if she disobeyed the law, she should be punished, but it looks to me like she's being punished for her husband's wrongdoing, not her own.

    If my husband asked me to go to the bank and make some deposits, I'd do it without asking all the possible legal scenarios behind it, because I trust his judgement. Perhaps Mrs. Hovind was simply decieved? If so, her sentence should have been much lighter.
