Snakes on a… Pastor

A pastor from Kentucky has died after being bitten by a venomous snake, the tenth time he has been bitten. He opted out of any medical treatment.

They will pick up snakes with their hands, and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them

-Mark 16.18

The small church takes the above line literally, according to various news stations. Another example of why I am not religious. 

Science had taught me to avoid these snakes at all costs. It has also taught me that medicine, in such instances, is my friend. To ignore this is evidence that belief erodes common sense, which can be fatal.
