Snake-Handling Pastor From "Snake Salvation" Died of Snake Bite

Posted: February 17th, 2014 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Snake-Handling Pastor From "Snake Salvation" Died of Snake BiteSubmit Comment
Pastor Jamie Coots, who was the focus of National Geographic Channel's reality TV series "Snake Salvation," which revolved around Coots and his exploits at a snake-handling church in Kentucky, has died of a fatal snake bite. He was 42 years old.

He was bitten on his hand during a church service earlier that day and refused medical attention. "They firmly believe they are commanded by the Bible to take up serpents as a sign to non-believers, and feel strongly they are exercising their religious freedom as guaranteed by the Constitution," said series executive producer Matthew Testa during a statement promoting the premiere. "They often say, 'God's law trumps the law of man.'"

On Sunday, the National Geographic Channel released a statement offering condolences for the loss of the pastor.

"In following Pastor Coots for our series 'Snake Salvation,' we were constantly struck by his devout religious convictions despite the health and legal peril he often faced," the statement read. "Those risks were always worth it to him and his congregants as a means to demonstrate their unwavering faith. We were honored to be allowed such unique access to Pastor Jamie and his congregation during the course of our show. Our thoughts are with his family at this difficult time."

Dumb enough handling the snakes but refusing treatment after being bit is just idiotic.

There is a difference between beliefs and just plain stupid.
