Billy Joe Shaver that wrote many of Waylon and Willie's songs does one called "Get thee behind me Satan" available on youtube which emulates the snake handlers.

When I was very very young we lived down in town next to an old lady, she in turn lived next to a holiness church. One of them came running out of the church yelling jimminy himminyy haw haw and all that, bless them its their right, but anyway he had a-hold of a big old black rattler, he dropped it and it darted under mawd's fence, she took out a little colt .38 spl snub nose and blew that snake to smithereens. LOL
I'll never forget how the old man laughed. Whew what a strange life a hillbilly gets to live folks.
LOL. I am of the mind set we shouldn't tempt God. I know God can save me from being hit by a car but I don't run out in the road and try to stop one with my hand.

<quoted text>Did they ever take up serpents? That may only be an Appalachian thing I'm not sure. They still do that around here. They either have a lot of faith, or a lot of stupid.
I don't intend to go to one of these but between my sisters house and their church they had to pass a church that practiced the taking up serpents belief. Umm, somewhere in Alabama -- not the Appalachians .

I wondered how far it spread, I think it originated in the Carolinas or west Virginia. I have seen pictures of women with their stocking feet in a stoker-matic, stirring those hot coals around and then after pics of the feet. The stockings were intact, no burns on the skin. Never witnessed that first hand though. To each their own I'll always be kind of a non-racist confederate.

I was reading today of the Confederate women and children's "Bread Riots" of April 2, 1863 in Richmond Va. and the Confederate Congress' levy to force a "tithe" of 10 % of all farm products enacted on Apr. 24, 1863. Protest meetings were organized all over the South.

I drove a guy out to the veterans hospitable in Richmond Va. a few years ago for some surgery, I went to a lot of those civil war historical sites and battlegrounds while I was there. The Chesapeake bay area alone has more than a man could visit in a week. One period cemetery went on and on and on, all those csa graves...what a bloody time that was.

You don't really consider just how bloody it was until you compare the 3 days of Gettysburg of July 1-3, 1863 and realize that the number of casualties there were nearly the same as the entire Vietnam era. And if you include the seige of Vicksburg Mississippi that ended on the next day of July 4th, it was even more.

But the worst single day casualty count was Antietam with 12,649 Union and 13,724 Confederate casualties.
