It turns out that Hovind is very anti-government, which tends to go with bible literalism these days.
ury selection will begin Monday in the trial of Kent Hovind, a polarizing Pensacola evangelist facing federal charges of fraud and contempt.
Hovind, known as Doctor Dino for his views on history and creation, could spend more than 20 years in prison if convicted of charges that he filed documents disputing the government’s right to sell his forfeited property.
North Carolina resident Alan Hoyle is in Pensacola to protest the Federal Court ruling against Kent Hovind. Hovind, the Pensacola based creationist is current in prison on federal tax charges.
Those aren’t the type of charges that normally make headlines, but depending on who you ask this case was never about the charges anyway. A man with unconventional views and a degree of national celebrity, Hovind has drawn a dedicated base of supporters, detractors and interested observers with differing views on whether the case is about tax laws, religion, government oppression, constitutional rights, all or none of the above.
