Religious snake-handlers busted in Kentucky
FRANKFORT, Ky. - The pastor of a Kentucky church that handles snakes in religious rites was among 10 people arrested by wildlife officers in a crackdown on the venomous snake trade.

More than 100 snakes, many of them deadly, were confiscated in the undercover sting after Thursday's arrests, said Col. Bob Milligan, director of law enforcement for Kentucky Fish and Wildlife.

Handling snakes is practiced in a handful of fundamentalist churches across Appalachia, based on the interpretation of Bible verses saying true believers can take up serpents without being harmed. The practice is illegal in most states, including Kentucky. ...

There is a lot of "snake-handling" happening on this forum. I hope we don't get busted.

Such is life for those who think it is their interpretation of scripture....a religious/spiritual feeling that is so overwhelming that one cannot know the person of Christ in these meetings. terv davey

Many people in these strange churches would have survived by providence, and whose providence one has to guess, and not because of their "faith" If they wish to prove their faith, and not something done by gambling, they should look at the following verse,

Matthew 17

20 And he saith unto them, Because of your little faith: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you

They should at least move a small mound of dirt, before they play around with snakes and drink poison.

Perhaps out of context, but it could apply here,

1Corinthians 10
9 Neither let us make trial of the Lord, as some of them made trial, and perished by the serpents.

This is reckless endangerment: if the rattlers got loose, any pagan neighbors
could be killed!..course, that could be a real good evangelism incentive.

"get saved!, cause we're missin' a few!" Better than Fire insurance!

re: lawsuits:
A Tennessee man says he was so consumed by the spirit of God that he fell and hit his head while worshipping. Now he wants the Lakewind Church of Knoxville to pay $2.5 million for his medical bills, lost income, pain, and suffering.

Could be worse: Todd Bently could kick him in the head:
