Snake-Handling Preachers Are Getting Their Own Reality Show

I thought “Preachers of L.A.” was going to be the strangest religion-based reality TV show this year…

I was wrong. It turns out there’s another show that makes Christians look even weirder:

‘Snake Salvation’ case (via National Geographic)

“Snake Salvation” is set to debut Sept. 10 at 8 p.m. Central time on the National Geographic Channel.

Coots said the series will feature scenes from church services where worshipers handle snakes as well as the day-to-day struggle to live out their faith. “The main thing is for people to see that there is more to us than wanting to handle snakes,” said [Pastor Jamie] Coots [of Full Gospel Tabernacle in Jesus Name church].

According to the show’s official website, the preachers believe that if they don’t handle snakes, they’ll go to hell. I guess they’re right. It’s like when Jesus said, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. And this ugly, slithery thing.”

In any case, I’m shocked: A show about handling snakes and it’s not airing on EWTN.
