Some people!!!

I just got done watching a show on SciFi. It was a show on strange things. The first part of the show was about a penicostal (sp) church that handles "deadly serpents" and drinks strickt nine (sp). These people all looked way messed up kinda like imbred people. (LOL) I couldn't belive what i was seeing they had old, middle aged and CHILDREN holding cottonmouths, rattle snakes and a few others, and drinking strictnine (sp). The were all dancing around like idiots with these snakes in there hand and some were even holding them up to there faces. The whole time i was in awe, I couldn't belive what i was watching. The said the reason they did this was because a script in the bible said something like The true belivers would not be hurt when drinking deadly venom and handiling venomus serpents. An older gentleman claimed he had been bitten over 113 times and only been sick from the bites a few times. How is that possible, can they be using venimoids or what. When they were dancing with these snakes i swear the snakes looked so limp like they were placed in the fridge for quite some time. Sorry for my incoherent babble but how in the world could this be possible!!!! The church was way run down in the middle of nowhere. It didn't even look like a church and as i said earlier everyone there looked way wacked out crossed eyes slurred speech all singing and dancing with these snakes and drinking stricknine why would you for any reason do this. Did anyone else see this show!!!! or was i the only one. Any opinions are great.

Jamie

personally i think they're all nut case's!
they are all totally irresponsible for letting children handle them, the older people should know better! but of course its all religious and stuff and god will save them!!
of course when someone gets bitten and dies, what will they say then? im sure theyre views would change!
what do you expect from a bunch of inbred wierdos? lol
and whats strictnine?

and i have to say.... your avatar scares me ::shudder:: eep!

Didn't see the show, but I've heard it said before that "snake handlers" get their snakes easy to handle by making them so cold that they're nearly dead. Religious or not, it's still abuse to me. Or have they dreamt up another way to docilify them yet?

I've met a few snake handlers. They had told me some bite stories. I was amazed how non-chalant they were about it. IMO they are not the sharpest knives in the drawer.

If some one dies then obviously they weren't a true believer. :P

religious nuts

I've seen similiar clips or shows like that and some of the men say when their wives or kids are bitten and sometimes even killed by the snakes that it was their time and they were not strong enough in their faith to god to live....a serious lack of grasping reality in these places...scary! These people should seriously leave the snakes alone and find other ways to kill each other...lol

Strichnine is also what is used to make acid for the trippers here

Looks like they found a nearly legal although not too bright of a way to trip.

I doubt any snake handler is an extremely intelligent individual because it endagers their own life, but hey, I may be wrong...

Those people are idiots...

Though I don't think some of you people should be making the connection between normal religious people who are quite strong in their faith (like me) and psycho religious people (like them). There are crazy people wherever you go... if they happen to be religious then the'll probably be crazy in a religious way. If they're not religious then they'll probably just walk around talking to Harvy the Rabbit.
