The Christian where pastors wield venomous SNAKES... and sometimes end up paying the ultimate price.  Read More

For believers in what some regard as the craziest fringe of America's Bible Belt, handling venomous snakes is as key to their worship as reciting the Lord's Prayer is for conventional Christians (pictured left). 'Serpent handlers' refuse medical attention if they are bitten and instead rely on God to decide if they live or die. The most recent fatality, in 2014, was Jamie Coots (pictured right), a Kentucky pastor who hosted a reality TV show called Snake Salvation. When a rattlesnake sank its fangs into his hand, he smiled, and said: 'Oh Lord.' Mack Wolford (pictured inset left) died in 2012 after a snake sunk its' fangs into him while he was preaching. He watched his father die from a snake bite when he was just 15.
