Quote# 70090

Churchers are not suppose to be paying taxes so [Kent] Hovind is an innocent man. Hovind did not steal the money and by mansions for himself like the TV preachers do. Hovind was trying to preach agianst evil men like PZ Myers. The devil did not like this so he used rich evil men and woman to lock Hovind away to shut him up.

One of the evil child molesting prosecutors of Hovind killed himself to avoid going to jail. So you see the people who went after him were wicked and wanted to stop him from telling the world Jesus is.

Then phoney christians did not come to Hovinds aid. TBN, Inspriation network, CBN, American center for law and justice, International Fellowship of Christians and Jews, President Bush all turned theirs backs on Hovind because none of those people love Jesus.

Your arguments (and your sentence structure) have all the maturity and insight of an ten-year-old. Your mama must be so proud!

First of all, churches are not supposed to pay taxes BUT individuals who open a new business, faith based or otherwise, are subject to taxes like anybody else. Remember render unto Caesar?. That's how it works.

Hovind could have applied for tax-free status. He's a full-blown idiot so he didn't.

Hovind doesn't understand the Law, Science, Education or Common sense. He's completely deluded on how the world operates.

I'm just afraid he's the tip of the iceberg, one of thousands who believe Biblical Interpretation should be considered as or more valuable than Education, Science, the Law or Common sense

No, they didn't come to his aid because they knew he was guilty. And please show me where Hovind's business is a church and therefore tax exempt? Apparently the government, judge & jury disagreed.

And nice how you claim that one of the prosecutors was a child molester. That must be the new buzz phrase to slander anyone you dislike these days. And you know what? Even if this is claim is true, it doesn't make Hovind any less guilty.

Lecturing about religion doesn't give you the right to avoid paying your taxes. Hovind owned a private business, and failed to pay the proper taxes. It's churches that are exempt from taxes, not religion-themed businesses.

Why are only very stupid people religious?

Wait, don't answer that. I think I figured it out.

"Churchers are not suppose to be paying taxes so [Kent] Hovind is an innocent man."

The IRS, and the resulting court case, says otherwise.

"One of the evil child molesting prosecutors of Hovind"

Maybe one 'killed himself' as you claim. But are you prepared to accuse the other prosecutors you speak of, of being 'child molesters' in court, under oath Heavens Janitor? Even saying what you have, where you have, is grounds for legal action. All it takes is an IP trace. I'm sure the FBI would be willing to perform the procedure...

"Then phoney christians did not come to Hovinds aid."

Unlike those who came a-running to help Ted Faggard in his hour of need, amirite? That's right-wing fundy Christians for you.

Fair-weather friends indeed.

Hovind could have applied for tax-free status. He's a full-blown idiot so he didn't.

Except he didn't qualify and never would have gotten it in the first place. And attempting to apply could have tipped his hand. The fact he only brought up his bullshit at the time he was called on it shows he was smart enough to know this.

Nah, I don't think Kent's as dumb as he acts. He's crafty enough to be almost smart. But I don't think he actually believes any of that shit he spews. He's just an evil, cynical fucktard that willingly takes advantage of the people that do believe it.

And that's far worse than being the idiot he pretends to be.

He could claim expenses for his theme park as he's preaching creationism straight from the Bible. He's a preacher (if he's not liscensed he's even dumber, it's easy to get a preacher licence) He has regular hours and his visitors would legally be considered parishoners (wouldn't they? that's a legal gray area )

Anton Levey's church is a little show too and it's tax-exempt (Who legalized his preacher licence?)

And once again we have an all powerful Satan doing what he wants in the world while God is feeble and powerless to save one of his own.

2/1/2010 10:31:33 AM


Wait, wait, wait... is Christianity a religion now? Because last week it was a 'personal relationship with Jesus'. So, which one is it?
It depends. Normally, it's, as you say, a relationship with Jesus, not like those other false Gods and whatnot. However around tax-time...oh, you better believe it's a religion.

Bubba says Kent lost his innocence.

The Church of Satan pays its taxes, Canadiest.

"Crimson Lizard

The Satanic church of Anton Levey? Why? They're a recognized religion (in America, like Scientology) and churchs are exempt in America.

All those 'phoney christians' turned their backs on Hovind because they WERE EXACTLY LIKE Hovind, and they knew it! They were all crouching behind the corner, hiding in the dark, and hoping the IRS wouldn't take notice of them and their own shenanigans.

There are good reasons why duck hunters hunt with shotguns, and these 'phoney christians' were well aware of that fact.

Anton LaVey's Church of Satan believes that every church should pay taxes. So they lead by example and pay their own. It's not a difficult concept.

4/17/2014 2:39:53 PM

@Crimson Lizard

Ah, it's not?
Are there any Christian churchs, that have tax-exempt status, that pay taxes?

I believe richer ones may, or should to prove Gods favor, ESPECIALLY prosperity Gospel ones.

But do they?

4/17/2014 6:22:54 PM

Crimson Lizard

Why do I have to keep coming back and explaining this extremely simple concept to anonymous morons?

Anton LaVey's Church of Satan pays its taxes, despite the fact that it doesn't have to, because they believe that all churches should pay taxes. They lead by example in that respect. If the Christian churches don't want to follow suit, exactly what is the Church of Satan supposed to do about it?

Christian churches don't pay their taxes because they don't have to, and they're too selfish to give a shit about anyone else.

There, do you understand now?

...so I guess you fundies - to a retard - will be dreopping that whole 'Atheism is a religion' BS too, eh? So many of your ilk are so eager to push that notion.

Because you know the financially lethal consequences of continuing to even think of saying so: as you're so eager to say that, therefore the onus being on you to unchain your wallets and pay we Atheists the tax rebate - with interest - owed to us, with equal eagerness.

That's why it would be a good idea for you to not only STFU about Kent 'Prolapsed Anus' Hovind, but about anything that can be remotely construed as an 'Opinion'. Because influencing the public outside the church (not even allowed in the homes of you fundies!) in any way, shape or form is a political act. Religion has no right to exist in US politics. Otherwise, expect a visit from the IRS, concerning the nearly $17 quadrillion owed in taxes by Christianity since 1776; the rather sizeable chunk of that amount by right-wing Fundamentalist Christainity, running to untold trillions.

No taxee, no opinionee.

That's why those 'phoney' Christians did not come to your boyfriend's aid. That's why - despite his son Eric's bullshitting by proxy, post-his dad's release - Kent has been keeping surprisingly shtum himself. And for why?

Because even he realises that the US government owns God.

Even Disney pays taxes. Pastor James Manning now wishes he had [/Allah Church]
