Just one more reason the U.S. is failing in the modern world.
This kind of behavior is protected in its aging constitution along with owning all the guns and ammunition
you can carry home in your pickup truck.
This story concerns itself with a snake getting the best of a devout Christian.

UPDATE: ‘Snake Salvation’ Star Dead From Snake Bite; NatGeo To Air Tribute Episode
Deadline.com
By JEN YAMATO 12 hours ago

UPDATE, 11:15 AM: With the first season fully filmed National Geographic had no plans for a second season of
Snake Salvation, says a network rep. Now in the wake of Jamie Coots‘ death NatGeo is working up a special
tribute episode “so people can understand Pastor Jamie and his method of worship and see that he died doing
what he believed was his calling.” Here’s NatGeo on Coots’ passing:

National Geographic joins his family, friends and community in mourning the loss of Pastor Jamie Coots.
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. 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, and give context to his method
of worship. Our thoughts are with his family at this difficult time.

PREVIOUSLY, 9:54 AM: Jamie Coots, one of the stars of National Geographic‘s reality show Snake Salvation,
died Saturday of a venomous snake bite. According to reports he refused medical attention after being
bitten in his Full Gospel Tabernacle in Jesus Name in Middlesboro, Kentucky and died shortly thereafter
in his home. The show debuted last Fall centered on two Pentecostal preachers who handle deadly snakes as
part of a century-old Appalachian practice originating from a Bible passage that suggests those anointed
by God will not be harmed by a poisonous snake bite. Coots had previously been bitten nine times and lost
a finger to a rattlesnake bite. He starred on Snake Salvation alongside Tennessee Pastor Andrew Hamblin,
both of whom claim serpent handling is their First Amendment religious right. The pair have come under
fire from authorities for hunting and collecting deadly snakes for their church services. Last year Coots
pled guilty to illegally possessing and transporting three rattlesnakes and two copperheads in Tennessee
after the state seized them in a traffic stop as he was driving them from Alabama to Kentucky.

If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?
