Should Creation Teacher Spend the Rest of His Life in Prison?

Kent Hovind is a Creation Science teacher and Baptist minister who became well known for debating university professors and refuting Darwinian evolutionary theory. He has served eight years of a ten-year prison sentence, and he is now fighting a new charge that would put him behind bars for the rest of his life. His next trial starts Monday May 18th. Kent Hovind's teachings, much like many of the topics we cover here at Health Impact News, go against mainstream media and education regarding such topics as the medical system, vaccines, GMOs, and of course Darwinian biology. Mr. Hovind was a biology science teacher for 15 years before he began a full-time creation ministry. Did Mr. Hovind actually break any laws, or is he a political prisoner? He was charged and convicted for "structuring," which is the "crime" of taking too much cash out of your own bank account. The judge in the case called Mr. Hovind "worse than a rapist." Mr. Hovind spoke on the Joyce Riley "Power Hour" talk radio show this past week from county jail.

IRS Seeks to Limit Free Speech

The IRS has no business in politics or interfering with free speech. Recently, the Alliance for Natural Health told us about newly proposed IRS rules that would dictate what they are allowed to tell their readers and what they cannot. To give an example, they would be forced to remove every single reference to a candidate’s connection to any legislation from their website sixty days before an election—giving incumbents a free pass to introduce legislation with almost no public scrutiny. If this stands, Senator Durbin would be allowed to introduce an anti-supplement bill knowing that the Alliance for Natural Health (and other organizations) could not link him to it in print. Now is the time to tell the IRS to rescind this political gag order and protect the right of political dissenters and organizations that represent individuals like you!
