This has to be one of the most ignorant things I have ever read.

I was laughing all the way through the story and the picture galleries,
until I realized these nimrods were completely serious.

Then the story got pathetic.

Mmm... hmm. Try this: have some identical plants in your home, pray at some of them, yell at the others. Keep the other conditions the same (sunlight, water, etc.) Notice growth over a period of time.
Then come back here when you realize that you're an idiot.

I wish I had a chainsaw. I'd cut it down myself just to prove how insane their "bulletproof chants" are.

So much for freedom of religion. I guess y'all don't respect our constitution.

I don't care if they were out there rubbing chipmunks on their bellies, they do have a right to practice their religion in this country. The problem I have is if this is "news". Maybe the ACT could do a story on some snake handlers tomorrow.
UMMM
