Fact of the Day: Serpent Faith

In some Pentecostal churches (usually rural) in the United States, many preachers and church members hold venomous snakes. The reason is that two Bible verses claim that if you have enough faith then a serpent or a scorpion cannot harm you. The minister who started it all was named George Went Hensley, and he died in 1955 from a snake-bite.

  6. There is another snake-handling pastor who died recently from snake bite. He'd been on a reality series not too long ago apparently.

  8. I'm not fond of snakes but they serve an important purpose by keeping down rat and mice populations. In Eastern cultures the snake is revered, unlike here in the States.

  11. My friends used to live next to a church that performed the snake rituals. They would find escaped snakes on their yard all the time. I think those people are freakin nuts!
