I am writing a modern day book on serpent handling . The books now list churches that do not practice anymore. I would like to know if there are any of these churches in that area.

Please does anyone, maybe a former member, have any photos of people doing this? The police need to be notified! If these people want to do this then have at it, but please keep our Heavenly Father out of it, and keep innocent children FAR away from this stuff!!!

Their has never been a church or member prosecuted for this in KY. They never put children in harms way so worship your way and let them do the same! Mind your own business!

I am not a snake handler but I am holliness, and I really wish you guys would not judge what you do not know. I dont believe that you have to do that to get to Heaven but some of my friends do and I respect that. I also believe that if they are doing it from their hearts than there would not be any pictures or videos, but they dont go around bothering anyone and I have never heard of a kid getting bit, so I think you can put your concerns to rest.

Technically snakes aren't poisonous. You can eat them all just fine. It's the venomous ones that will kill you.

Venom is dangerous when in the bloodstream.
Poison is dangerous when ingested.
Yeah

Let's make this real simple for the simple minded.

Anyone who handles a snake/serpent in the name of religious worship/proving unwavering faith needs mental help immediately.

And you wonder why many of us laugh at you superstitious idiots.

Actually, ah, nevermind.
