He declared his employees all as missionaries even though they were just regular normal workers. And he truly believed the court would agree with him. Even though he didn't even register the business as a non-profit! Sometimes you can't use "belief" as justification for everything.
All his theories have been debunked. All of them. It's impossible for anyone to even pretend Kent Hovind is anywhere close to having any legitimacy at all. I mean, this is a guy who can't tell the difference between biology and cosmology!
I mean even - ANSWERS IN GENESIS - super conservative creationist group - criticized Hovind for being unethical: Hovind "Persistently use[es] discredited or false arguments, with an unwillingness to correct when the weaknesses are pointed out, and more disturbingly, often fail[s] to understand the reasoning involved."

Misconception: “Evolution is ‘just’ a theory.”
Scientific theories are explanations that are based on lines of evidence, enable valid predictions, and have been tested in many ways. In contrast, there is also a popular definition of theory—a “guess” or “hunch.” These conflicting definitions often cause unnecessary confusion about evolution.
You do know that evolution was proposed BEFORE JESUS WAS BORN?

I only recently began openly disliking the theory because someone called me a fool for believing in an "imaginary superhero in the sky." That really made me angry. I had always not believed in the theory, but I admit my activeness in ridding the theory came from personal fury.
. Romans 8:38-39For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord
Anyway, I hope I didn't do anything to offend you, you know. And I especially hope nothing I said weakened your countenance. I just want to show people that no science can undermine the truth of God, and no Christian should be fearful of science. Not even of evolutionary theory. In all things we can be certain, that God loves us, and unlike all those religions which say that we have to live and die to appease some god(s) in some way, the actual truth is that God has died for us, because he loves us more than we can imagine.
