Playing with Snakes
http://abcnews.go.com/...costal-pastor-dies-snake-bite/story

quote:
The "snake handling" pastor of a small Pentecostal church in Kentucky died after being bitten by a rattlesnake during a weekend church service.

Jamie Coots, the pastor of the Full Gospel Tabernacle in Jesus Name in Middlesboro, Ky., was handling a rattlesnake during a service when he was bitten on his right hand Saturday night. But when the ambulance arrived at 8:30 p.m., the EMS team found that Coots had gone home, according to a statement from the Middlesboro Police Department.

Middlesboro Police Chief Jeff Sharpe told ABC News that, according to people at the church, Coots verbally refused treatment at the church. He said Coots was unconscious when he got to his house. When the ambulance crew arrived at Coots' home, his wife Linda Coots signed a form declining medical treatment, police said.


Ironic that those who rally so vigorously against the Theory of Evolution seem to be most likely to succumb to Natural Selection.

Except they tend to pass on the dumbass gene well into breeding age and hence ensure a new generation of prodigy.

Don't you mean 'in-breeding age'?

Re: Playing with Snakes
The further irony is that the verse they rely on for handling snakes, Mark 16:18, is not in the earliest manuscripts, which finish at vs 8.

Indeed. Ultimately, I remember this being a discussion topic in Bible study when I was young and I recall the youth pastor always referring to this passage as being merely metaphorical. A bit of a throwback to the notion of the Serpent being Satan in the Garden of Eden. But like many passages, not meant to be taken literally.

Re: Like Father Like Son
quote:
"Coots has been bitten nine times by venomous snakes. Each time he refused medical attention. Half of his right middle finger is gone as a result of a fang from a yellow rattler. In 1995, a woman who was bit in his church refused to go to the hospital; she died on Coots' couch while church members prayed over her."

I have a suggestion: can we import a few snakes from overseas for these lunatics? Maybe a King Brown from Australia or a Black Mamba from Africa. My guess is these bozos are going to find out quite rapidly what happens when you mess with those serpents.

Hey, if they truly believe they can handle snakes without fear, that should include ALL snakes, right?

Re: Faith's new favorite source
Oh look, she uses The Protocols Of The Elders Of Zion as a text for homeschooling, it's part of the fifth-grade curriculum.

Might as well toss in Dianetics at this stage. Or go for the trifecta and also include 'Atlas Shrugged'.

This is what us Canadians might call the 'Looney Hat Trick'.

Aliens are going to HELL!!!!
Ken Ham strikes again:

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/...s-go-to-hell_n_5608368.html

quote:
"You see, the Bible makes it clear that Adam’s sin affected the whole universe," Ham wrote on his blog on Sunday. "This means that any aliens would also be affected by Adam’s sin, but because they are not Adam’s descendants, they can’t have salvation."

At least we know who the aliens will use their death ray on first!

Assault with a deadly weapon: Florida man charged with throwing alligator into Wendy’s

Authorities in Florida have arrested a man accused of throwing a live alligator through a restaurant’s drive-through window.

Investigators identified Joshua James, of Jupiter, Fla., as the man who tossed the 3½-foot reptile into a Wendy’s last fall, according to a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission incident report.

He faces three charges related to the incident: aggravated assault with a deadly weapon; unlawful sale, possession or transporting of an alligator; and petty theft. James, 24, was taken into custody and booked into the Palm Beach County Detention Center on Monday.


Twenty bucks says he also yelled 'See yah later Alligator!' when he pulled this stunt.

Brock Turner's Father
For those that might not be familiar with the case, a Stanford swim team student was found guilty of rape and was given a slap on the wrist as a punishment. Despite the lax sentence, his idiot father decided to chime in:

http://espn.go.com/...ther-says-son-suffer-20-seconds-action

quote:
"His life will never be the one that he dreamed about and worked so hard to achieve," Dan A. Turner wrote in the letter asking for probation. "That is a steep price to pay for 20 minutes of action out of his 20 plus years of life."

Well, if it was just 20 minutes of action, I guess it's ok. And I am sure David Turner would have been totally understanding if it was his daughter that endured a rape for 20 minutes.

This type of nonsense honestly reminds me of the Affluenza Teen and his moronic mother and father. It seems that once you are rich, the laws just don't apply to you.
