Snake-Handling: Like Father, Like Son

Is courage piety a death wish stupidity a hereditary trait? One young pastor offers up strong evidence:

The newest pastor in the “Snake Salvation” church says he will also refuse treatment if he’s bitten in the same way that killed his father a week ago.

Cody Coots says he will also handle the same snake that killed his father during an afternoon service in Kentucky. The pastor says if paramedics come to help him, he’ll send them away, just like his father did.

He said: “I will lay right there and say to everyone that it’s God’s will. If it’s good enough to live by, then it’s good enough to die by.”

Oh, bite me.
