A Tennessee pastor, who was busted by wildlife services in 2008 for illegally owning venomous snakes, has had some more of snakes confiscated and taken to live in the zoo.
Pastor Gregory Coots, who goes by the name Jamie, told WYMT that he was on his way back from purchasing the snakes in Alabama when the Tennessee Wildlife Resource Agency took possession of the three rattlesnakes and two copperheads at a traffic stop.
“He wanted to know if I had any documentation and I told him no,” Coots recalled. “He came back a few minutes later and said he was going to take the snakes and containers.
Because when has faith ever hurt anybody?
Other Christians will shake their heads at Pastor Coots, thinking he is a fool for besmirching the noble quality of faith by abiding by Mark 16:18 and handling poisonous snakes. They will then go right back to thinking believing that a guy rose from the dead is perfectly sensible, as if their delusions are any better.
