    My inlaws live in the hills of eastern KY. When I first met them they asked me if I went to church. I said I would if I were'nt afraid of snakes...
    I'd rather be lucky than good any day

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    Reminds me of a Jerry Clower routine.

    Jerry and Marcel go to a revival meeting.

    As the meeting really gets going the preacher dumps a basket of snakes on the floor and grabs one up.

    Seeing this Jerry looks around then asks Marcel if he saw a back door.

    After Marcel says he did not see a door Jerry asks him “Recon where they want one”.

    Jerry Clower was the best...a one of a kind, and a true gentleman in every sense of the word.
    I miss him and his brand of humor.

    Naw, his mama (Sally Fields) used to say that to him. Forrest quoted it to Bubba's mama.

    But what kills me in these "faith miracle"-type situations is how important these people must think they are to think that God would swoop down and keep a snake from biting them, a train from squashing them, the other team from beating them, the sperm from getting their egg, etc. It's biology and physics that run the show. Biology and physics. Remember what gravity does? It works. Every time.

    It's called freedom of religion and it's totally legal in West Va. They have their religious beliefs as to why he died from the bite also.

    It would appear that the snake was not familiar with the scripture.

    Well ..... DUUUUUUUUUHHH
    Asked by a CNN reporter "What do you feel when you shoot a terrorist"?, the Marine sniper simply shrugged & replied "recoil".

    Cases like this one can't do much for recruitment.

    Some days you're the windshield, somedays you're the bug.
    When it comes to snakes, my philosophy is simple. kill it. Venomous, non venomous, I don't care. Some people come up with the good ol "oh, they are more afraid of you then you are of them". They're damn right to be afraid, as they are toast as soon as I see them. I just don't like animals who can kill me in a heartbeat just because they woke up with their scales in a bunch.

    That isn't faith: it's stupidity. Jesus was talking about his disciples after Pentecost (who were able to do these miraculous things as a witness to the truth and authority of the Gospel message as they were building the early Church, not as a parlor trick to show how holy they were).

    Jesus also said that you should not tempt God. The pastor should've read Matthew 4 a few times.

    It saddens me when those who are ignorant of the scriptures make headlines like this through their ignorance.
