Therefore, there are no Holy martyrs in the False Atheism. So, there is no sense to Judge the Kent Hovind here.

We can and will judge anything we fucking well want to judge, Borg.

Hovind is a convicted felon, a greedy man who refused to pay his fair share of taxes. If he breaks the law again, I will be quite happy to see him thrown back in prison. If he does it a third time, I think he should stay in prison for the rest of his life.

Martyrdom is also not a desirable quality. All it means is that a god was too bloody lazy to protect its followers from harm. A martyr is, therefore, the victim of an incompetent deity.

I'm sorry, but your beliefs are much too silly to take seriously. Got anything else we can discuss?

Smartass
Actual morality comes from societal consensus. Hovind neither conforms to his society's morality (in this case, its tax laws duly enacted by authorized representatives of the citizenry), nor provides any valid argument for not doing so. I on the other hand DO pay my taxes without complaint or dissembling. So yes, quite apart from the irrelevant fact that I happen to not believe in any deities, I DO get to judge "the Kent" and to agree with the penalty he has paid for not paying his taxes, and for dissembling about it.

The state laws of USA historically are based on the 10 Commandments. The laws, which are in conflict are not the laws, but an absurd. So, by judging a criminal using the state laws, the Judge is serving the God.

The problem of the False atheism is the absence of God.

Another attempt by Borg to lie to people that he totally lacks the skills to deceive.

If the laws of the United States were based on the 10 Commandments, we would see the following:

1) No freedom of religion.
2) An established church.
3) Many other religions openly and flagrantly persecuted.
4) Severely curtailed freedom of speech, press, assembly, and association.
5) A notable absence of democracy.
6) Thoughtcrimes.
7) No laws against marital rape.
8) No ban against nobility.
9) Religious tests for office, rather than a ban on religious tests for office.
10) A ban on idols and other graven images.
11) A death sentence for working on Sunday.
12) A death sentence for blasphemy.
13) Adult children unable to criticize their parents on anything.

.... well that's a complete change of subject.

Burned? Definitely not. Fires spread to neighboring buildings and buildings that are presently churches are still valuable for other purposes. Burning them would be a waste. Not that I want government specifically targeting churches for asset seizure. But I would like to see churches go bankrupt because people woke up (and they are waking up), walked away, and stopped paying tithes.

Also, churches blessing things does absolutely nothing to stop... well, anything. So, yeah, sounds like the perfect remedy for the fictional violence you're talking about.

But, AGAIN. This has nothing to do with the topic of Kent Hovind's crimes and conviction, or your brazen lies about US law. You really aren't capable of connecting one thought to another.

This. Fires endanger people and other buildings. Better to keep the church buildings and turn them into concert halls or coffee shops.

And blessings never fixed anything except in people's imaginations.

Blessings are make-believe, Borg. They have absolutely no power of their own. All they have is whatever power that people's imaginations give them.
