Snake handling pastor died after being bitten by snake

Pastor Jamie Coots from Middlesboro, Kentucky died on Saturday night after he was bitten by a snake.

According to the Middlesboro Police Department, emergency crews responded to reports of a possible snakebite victim at around 8:30pm, but say the victim had already left the scene by the time they arrived.

Police say they found Coots at his home with an apparent snakebite to his hand. Officials say EMS responders explained the dangers of not treating the wound, but that Coots still refused to be transferred.

Pastor Coots filmed last year.

Police and EMS returned to the scene an hour later to find Coots dead. Coots was the pastor of Full Gospel Tabernacle in Jesus Name church in Middlesboro.

One less god-bothering idiot in the world. Let's hope he hasn't bred.

I guess he never saw the video on what a snake bite does to the blood.

Alas, other reports indicated he already has kids, though perhaps they'll learn something from this.

If they haven't been too badly damaged already.

If the snake doesn't bite you, it's due to God's protection.
If the snake bites you and you die, it's God's will, he is simply calling you home.

So why not skip the whole snake handling bit & just shoot yourself? Quicker fulfillment of God's plan & fewer steps to meet him.

I was going to post about what an idiot this guy was, but thought it would get censored.
What a joy to find like minded people on here !!!
A little part of me feels sadness at the loss of a human life.
(That part's not true but I write it to con you all into thinking I am a nice human).
I was forced to go to a catholic school as a child, and it took me until about 12 or 13 years of age to realise that if there is a god, of any description, that cloud living god gave me the brain power to weigh up such ideas as 'is there a god ?' and ' can a cloud dweller's child really walk on water ?'. I want to state, here and now, that I thank that god creature for giving me this brain, a brain of such massive calculating power that it can fathom the ridiculousness of the idea of a god, ( a quick side step to avoid the lightning strike), a god that, for instance, can answer your prayers about winning the Lotto, BUT DOESN'T ! Yeah, right, that's the last time I get down on my knees for ANY bloke !
I also want to thank the aforementioned god for making the anti robot thingie numerical, cheers, I can do it without squinting.
