This pretty much happened in my back yard. My Uncle and I have actually considered visiting the church before just to see how weird it really is.

Background:

Henry Rollins (show host) with Pastor Coots at Coots' Pentacostal snake handling service in WV (from NatGeo show Animal Underworld).

http://animals.natio...ng-with-snakes/

This particular Pastor has been bitten 6 times and lost a finger from the experience.

Face eaten off by a drug crazed pseudo-zombie in FL or bitten by a rattler in a church service in WV? You choose.

After a bit of further reading, his church is like 3 miles from my house. I've drove by it at least 1,000 times and never knew that it was a snake handling church. I automatically assumed they were talking about that famous bunch of snake handlers in Jolo. It's amazing just how many of these nuthouses are in my immediate area.

I think that I'd have to choose the rattlesnake.

If only someone could have foreseen this.

The congregation must really be rattled.

"He lived 101/2 hours," ???

Was that meant to be 10 and a half hours? Or do they also believe decimals are the devil and fractions are the way of God?

I've always thought that snake lovers were setting theirselves up for failure.
