    Because sometimes you can't make this stuff up!


    Serpent-handling pastor profiled earlier in Washington Post dies from rattlesnake bite - The Washington Post

    If only other funditards could weed themselves out of the gene pool with such efficiency.

    Only problem is sometimes these people take a few innocent people with them.

    Live by the snake, die by the snake. He must have had a death wish.

    they prefer to be called serpent handlers...and they simply follow the bible....

    mark 16:18


    They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

    I wonder when more Christians will engage their religious liberty and take up snake handling.
