I’m sure you’ve heard the propaganda pretending there’s all this persecution of Bible-believers in Communist countries. No doubt that is true when the Orthodox Roman Cult gets its hands on power in Russia, as its sister Cult, the Roman “Catholic” Cult, has in America. I want to update you on that present, real-time, Cultic control of the USA, and how the major establishment Cults are RIGHT NOW persecuting Bible-believing Christians and Jews. The Vatican and the World Council of “Churches” aim to crush all Bible-believing born-again Spirit-filled Christians in the USA, as well as any Old-Testament believing Jews they can get their hands on. They use their stooges in the courts (for example 6 out of 9 Supreme Court Judges are now Roman “Catholic”) to prosecute believers by two main methods: 1) trumped-up tax cases 2) trumped-up “child abuse” cases. The Vatican and the World Council of “Churches” are the ones truly guilty on both counts. Look how they evade paying ALL TAXES and then have the nerve to take tax-payers’ money to fund their own shady operations. The constant stream of child abuse by Vatican priests and worldly pastors in the mainline “Protestant” churches of the World Council needs no retelling, I’m sure. You’ve all read the papers and seen it on TV and the web. Now read the account of Kent Hovind, a lovely Christian Bible-believing pastor, who is right now serving a TEN YEAR (YES, I SAID, TEN YEAR) SENTENCE on trumped-up tax charges from the scum-loaded IRS (INLAND ROBBERY SERVICE), and you will see how Satan particularly and nastily picked on his beloved wife (who is incredibly serving a one year sentence too): This will speak for itself. Please read also the other blog entries on this blog re. Kent Hovind and the IRS to get the background.
BLOG POST ON CSE BLOGS (http://www.cseblogs.com/) TO WHICH YOU CAN GO FOR FULL BLOG ENTRIES FROM THIS DEAR PERSECUTED CHRISTIAN PASTOR KENT HOVIND:
“Dear Praying Friends,
Short version for those who have followed our court case – Eric (my son) is raising money to buy the ministry property before Sept. 15 or it will be seized by the IRS. He needs to raise $380,000. To date he has raised about 70%. He is looking for 3,800 people who support our outreach to give $100. Details are on www.drdino.com/legal , or call the office at 850-479-3466 if you have any questions. Credit cards are fine. Checks can be made to CSE. We also have a paypal option.
Long version for those who may not have followed this bizarre case – Creation Science Evangelism (CSE) began in 1989 shortly after we moved to Pensacola. It grew quickly, and I was traveling to all 50 states and over 30 foreign countries sharing the truths of God’s amazing creation and debating and debunking the evolution religion in churches, schools, TV, radio, and university debates. Videos of these seminars are now available in over 25 languages and have changed countless lives around the world.
In 1999, CSE became part of Faith Baptist Fellowship, and all property was transferred into their name. No problem. In 2002, Pastor Mooneyhan was retiring, and the board elected to dissolve FBF. To prevent CSE from being “orphaned,” Remedies at Law created ministerial trusts to hold the property and bank accounts and give me freedom to just travel and preach. I was speaking over 700 times each year for many years.
Over the years my wife would withdraw ministry money to pay ministry bills from remodeling the older homes purchased for staff housing to paying the people ministering as independent contractors. Again, no problem. In 2003 this practice stopped. On July 13, 2006, with absolutely no warnings or notice of any kind by phone or in writing, armed IRS agents surrounded her in bed and woke her up to handcuff her in her nightgown. She was not allowed to get dressed, put on a robe or go to the bathroom, even though she was begging for these simple courtesies. We were taken down to the Federal Court House and indicted for “structuring.” At the time I had no idea what that even was, let alone that it was against the law or that we had done something wrong. We had banked at the same bank for 10 years and normally at the same teller window. No one ever hinted that there was a problem with taking your own money out of your own account to pay your own bills! There should have been “suspicious transaction” reports filed. None were.
As it was, the government had cherry picked 45 times out of the hundreds of transactions when the amount was under $10,000 and they charged us with 45 counts of structuring. It seems that Congress passed laws years ago to stop drug dealers from hiding large amounts of cash. Any transactions over $10,000 had to be reported on a form called a CTR that the bank filled out. If a person broke down large amounts into smaller amounts under $10,000 and made smaller deposits at different banks on the same day to prevent the bank from filling out this CTR, that person would be guilty of one count of structuring. My wife’s withdrawals were 12 days apart on average and were not part of a large amount being broken down to avoid anything. Nor were drugs involved in anyway. The money was donated or earned in legitimate ways and was spent on legitimate ministry bills. Yet they charged each one as a separate count. Each count carries a 5 year prison term!
After a two-week trial, our attorneys both advised us that we should not even give a defense since no laws were broken and in America, in theory, you are innocent until proven guilty. As my attorney was giving his closing argument, he was reading the jury instruction that said that, in order to structure, it had to be an amount over $10,000 like the law says. The Assistant US Attorney stood up and objected to her own jury instruction being read to the jury! The judge took a 45-minute recess and came back with an altered jury instruction that said if the jury found us guilty of taking out less than $10,000 they must find us guilty! Our attorneys objected and asked for a mistrial but the judge overruled. Changing “more than” to “less than” rewrites the law and violates the rule book about not changing jury instructions after trial. Obviously we were found guilty and I was sentenced to 10 years and my wife to one.
The case is on appeal at the Supreme Court now. By this twisted logic, if you take $100 out of your own back account each week for 100 weeks you can be found guilty of 100 counts of structuring and sentenced to 500 years in prison! To complicate things more, the US attorney asked for all the money withdrawn in those 45 counts to be forfeited to the government even though it had long been spent on ministry bills and was not connected to drugs in anyway. Our objections to this were also overruled, so now I was not only in prison, I owed $430,000! There was never a tax loss to the government. The people working in the ministry paid their taxes, and so no one can figure out what the money is for. Since I don’t own anything, there was nothing for them to seize, so the government asked for and got permission to substitute property. They asked for permission to seize the ministry property even though 8 of the 10 properties have never been in my name and the other two were donated to the church ministry ten years ago. After holding the motion on her desk for 7 ½ months, the judge ruled last month that the government can seize the ministry property to pay this “bill” that is still on appeal and had nothing to do with drugs – though the “authority” to seize it is based on title 21 drug laws! So…. the IRS gave Eric 30 days (till Sept. 15th) to get off the property. Moving CSE would be like moving Wal-Mart (almost). It will uproot several families as well.
The US Attorney in charge of seizure said that if Eric can sell the property for $380,000 (they already seized $50,000) he can stay there. That is why we need help now. If the Supreme Court overturns the case they will have to return the money. In 1850 the Supreme Court ruled on 450 cases. Today they rule on about 70/yr! Ours is in the pile for them to select from. They come back in a few weeks. Pray they accept ours and overturn it. This not only gets the money back but sends me home! It also provides good “case law” to stop them from using these silly structuring laws to hurt others. More details can be found on www.drdino.com/legal.
Some may want to loan CSE the money to stop the seizure and get it back if the SC overturns the case. For those who just donate, if the money is returned, we will use it to further the gospel message around the world. We have contacts in many countries where we can get DVD’s into public schools quickly if money is available.
The trustees objected to the judge determining they can seize ministry property for a personal bill, but these were dismissed without a trial or even a hearing! Welcome to the new Amerika! The USSA. Please call your congressman to get involved and to change these silly structuring laws!
It seems that Satan does not like our little creation ministry. Duh! We also need to help overcome the bad press in the news and on the web, so please copy this letter and send it to any and all who think we broke some laws deliberately. Please read and circulate the Banker’s Letter from www.drdino.com/legal as well. It gives a great summary of this case. ….
My wife Jo goes to a ½ way house Oct. 1! She has seen a whole new side of our “justice” system and society! God sure gave me a Prov. 31 wife. I love you, Jo! I’ll see you as soon as I can! Hang on! Romans 8:28 applies to us. For all 36 years of our marriage, we have tried to “seek first” His kingdom. He knows what is best and is issuing even this trial for our good and His glory!
I still post every week on www.cseblogs.com. Please share my “Knee-Mail” letters with any who suffer or are discouraged. They will be coming out in book form once this crisis is past. You can also post any comments for me there, since these are sent to me every week.
I feel a little like Elijah must have felt. After a 3 ½ year drought he asked for 12 barrels (I Kn. 18: 33-34) of water! I know times are rough financially now, and many cannot give at this time – no problem. Getting the church to pray Acts 12:5-style means more than any amount of money! If you can help with a gift or loan please contact Eric ASAP! Keep serving the Lord. He’s coming soon!

UPDATE ON THE PROSECUTION OF THE ILLEGAL ENTITY ON THE POTOMAC AND THE ALLEGED PRESIDENT:
The Courts are now stalling on the Kerchner vs. Obama case conducted by the New Jersey Lawyer Mario Apuzzo. The Lawyers are having to chase the Judge to get him to utter a judgment. Go to this link to get the latest ridiculous news of the “Government”‘s evasion tactics: http://www.scribd.com/doc/20480245/Kerchner-v-Obama-Congress-Doc-39-Inquiry-Letter-to-Judge-Simandle-FILED-10109. They’ve nailed ’em with this case — they’ve just GOT NO ANSWER!! All they can do is STALL. It’s amazing what “official” criminals can get away with. Notice the “President” doesn’t have to prove a thing about his background to be slipped into an office which gives him power of life and death over millions, but poor little Bible-believers like Kent Hovind and his wife have to prove every little detail of every monetary transaction, and even before the details are examined in court, they’re thrown into the slammer. No wonder God’s judgment is hanging over this nation and ready to fall, as the Bible says, “on the head of the wicked”.
