Well, the guy's not a massive hypocrite like most danger-avoiding, hospital-using religious people. At least he had that going for him. As far as this one verse goes, anyway.

It's sad that it's extremely likely no one will look at this and realize the verse (and book) is bull crap.

On a local forum, someone mentioned the Westboro Baptist might protest at the funeral, then others started mentioning the snakes would probably be present and it could get very interesting.

Might be worthy of PPV or an SNL skit. Tongue

Pentecostal snake bite!
I know I shouldn't laugh when a person dies but, well......sometimes I can't help myself.
So this guy, Jamie Coots, a pentecostal snake handler/preacher, gets bit by one of his snakes and bites the dust. What I find most amusing is that Mark 16: 9- 20, "they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes with their hands" which is the basis for these preacher snake handlers, was added much later by scribes. Of course, the New Testament is a bunch of stories told and re told and then re-told and re-told some more with added embellishments until someone started writing the stories down, so it's all a bunch of hooey anyway. But jeeze. Picking up venomous snakes? People are so dumb sometimes.





Even some christian groups realize it doesn't belong in the bible.
