Snakes On A Church

Snakes! On A Mother-F**cking Church!

A southeastern Kentucky woman was bitten by a snake during a church service and later died, a law enforcement officer said. Linda Long, 48, of London died Sunday at University of Kentucky Medical Center, said Brad Mitchell, a detective with the Laurel County Sheriff's Office.

...Snake handling is based on a passage in the Bible, in the Gospel of Mark, that says a sign of a true believer is the power to "take up serpents" without being harmed.

Actually, this is based on a common mistranslation, the actual quote is the "power 'to take up surfing' without being harmed." Because some of those waves can get pretty hairy.

Especially around Charlie's point. And believe us, Charlie's an aetheist.
