Yeah, the "holiest" person ever!!!! :-).

Well, arguably, yes she was.

Jesus said to "render unto Caesar what is Caesar's", meaning to pay your freakin' taxes, among other things.

Kent Hovind was being dishonest, and lying in order to avoid his fair share of taxpayer burden, leaving it on others. It is a violation of the Eighth Commandment.

So yes, she was being holy. It is appalling to me that you would applaud a dishonest fraud like Hovind, who lies and misrepresents science/scientists for a living (as well as committing federal crimes, apparently), instead of saying that Rebekah Horton was acting as a moral person-- a good Christian, too.

It appalls me that you would smirk at Rebekah and smile at Kent.

Is this what your version of Christian ethics and morals looks like? It's okay to be deceitful as long as you think it's in a holy cause? Even if it requires ignoring the words of Jesus?

Wow.

So if you're defending Hovind, do you agree with his views?

Is the earth only 6,000-10,000 years old?

Did dinosaurs walk the earth at the same time as humans?

Did humans live around 900 years about 6,000 years ago?

Thank you, dear RocketSurgeon76 for the comment.
But it is suspicious, what the Kent's story (see the video above) is different from the accusations in the Wikipedia. A persons can lie, you know?

And it is O.K. to spent some time in jail, becoming the martyr, because the Kent's materials are useful even without him.

The Social Doctrine (the real document) of the Russian Orthodox Christian Church does not condemn the Darwinian Evolution (if the information I've got is correct. So, to be sure, someone must study the document. Need the link?)

Answer the questions right here and stop being evasive.

I am talking within the Eastern Orthodox Christian Church. I "bet", you do not know the definition of "martyr" there.

You're an evasive cowardly asshole, that's afraid to answer questions put to you.
