In my experience, the vast majority of Hovind's supporters were not
aware of his tax evasion. It's not a matter of them supporting tax
evasion, but Hovind and friends have put out a number of extremely well
written propaganda pieces about how they were stalked by tax goons who
didn't obey their own laws, how Hovind was assaulted by one etc...


You don't see much of it in communities like this where people join to
discuss the issues because his supporters largely couldn't be bothered
to question their beliefs or those who preach their beliefs. I should
also be clear that I in no way attribute this apathy to Hovind's
message. The sad fact is that a good portion of us Americans (North
Americans really) are quite apathetic about seeking truth and would
rather use beliefs to separate "us" and "them" so the distinction is
clear and comfortable. I firmly believe that Hovind uses and encourages
this type of willful ignorance and xenophobia though I think the apathy
is ingrained in our culture and not a product of Hovind-type

Why is there a campaign to free Hovind? Is there biblical justification
for letting wrongdoers go free as long as they're an evangelist? In the
email "conversation," God seemed rather unconcerned that Hovind failed
to render unto Ceasar that which was Ceasar's.
