It's called an orgy porn video.
Lol, sort of. As long as it's only one man and lots of women. And if it's historically accurate, at least some of those women need to be underaged. Sometimes way underaged.

No, I'm not condoning that. It's sick. But that's Mormon history, porn-style.

The snake handlers would make a good reality show. But then you said mainstream and thankfully that one is not or the population would suffer!

RE: Which mainstream religion story...
I used to handle snakes. When I was about 10-12 years old, living in southern California, we had rattlesnakes all around our subdivision. We "older kids" took it upon ourselves to hunt them down to protect the little kids. This usually involved a snake catching pole and a shovel.

But we invented a game with the smaller rattlers that weren't too heavy - slide a broom handle or other solid stick under the middle of the snake and lift it off the ground, then toss it to your friend who tries to catch it on his stick. Almost impossible to do (the snake just flips around and falls off). Great fun. Except for the snake.

But we were protecting the little kids so it was OK.

But I was never crazy enough to do that church snake-handling nonsense.

RE: Which mainstream religion story...
Hold on just a second there.

I thought when you handled snakes, all poisons shall not harm you...

Going by that vague and uncertain reference point, why would it matter if the little kids were bitten?


Anyway, I would love to introduce a couple of Inland Taipans or a few Brown Snakes to one of those snake handling churches.


Oh would the be in for the surprise of their lives!!

...Can I mail snakes to churches?

AS and FT, y'all could definitely make a good reality show with the snake broom handle game and the mail-exotic-snakes-to-snake-handling-churches idea! Look out swamp people!!!

It's not the exotic that is the interesting part about those two snake species.



It's their venom.

No, no, KC. Number 2 is supposed to describe the LEAST ridiculous.

Although it depends on what we are defining as ridiculous I suppose. If we are basing it on the belief as a whole, I stand by my N/A. However, if we factor in which one results in the least ridiculous behavior, on average, then probably one of the Far East religions.

I assume you would go with Calvinism either way, right KC?

Gotcha. So it could be a Survivor type show (or not Survivor, possibly a subset of 1000 Ways to Die). Maybe it could air right after Amish Mafia, whatever that is...

1. Mormonism.

It is provably a made up religion by a known con man. So many ridiculous claims. Even the fact that Native American genetics prove it is bogus, people still believe.

2. Buddhism.

In it's purist form, it seems non-dogmatic with little or no supernatural beiefs.

3. Hinduism.

What a great movie it would make! Gods in Vimana flying around the sky shooting devastating weapons at each other. Come on...

They already tried to make a movie about Scientology. 'Battlefield Earth'. It was laughable.
