Dear Brother Hovind,
I enjoyed the new newsletter and will keep an eye out for a camp site. I’m sorry to hear about your son-in-law. I had an idea about what you should do about the county permit problem. Since the county doesn’t seem to understand the history of the church-state relationship nor do they seem willing to accommodate the sincere convictions of the church I suggest that you get the permits under duress. This shows they are breaking the law several ways. This will give you plenty to get them on after you get the instant problem solved. It is illegal to obtain a signature under duress yet they have the guns and won’t hesitate to use them. Proceeding under duress preserves your right to sue them for this clear violation of their limited jurisdiction.
While you are going through their process you can continue the legal process all the way to the Supreme Court. This will cost about $60,000 total, most of which is already spent by now in the lower courts. I will support you in this and I’m sure many more who love your ministry and freedom will support you as well. This case needs to be taken all the way since the county has broken so many laws already. I love the abatement you filed with the court. That explains the problem so well. Keep up the great work!
