Default Snake Handling Preacher Dies After Getting Bit, Refusing Treatment

I'm pretty sure God would be okay with you seeking medical treatment....



(Source) A snake-handling TV preacher died on Saturday of a snake bite. Pastor Jamie Coots, the star of “Snake Salvation,” was bitten on the right hand at his Kentucky church, Middlesborough police said. The Pentecostal holy man refused to go to the hospital or accept any medical treatment, police said. Coots, whose show appeared on National Geographic’s television channel, believed snake handling was a commandment from God and a viper’s bite was God’s will. “When I first started church I said if I ever went to a hospital or a doctor over a snake bite I would quit church,” Coots said in one episode.

He had previously survived a bite that cost him most of the middle finger on his right hand. Instead seeking medical attention for the gruesome injury, he let it rot to black, exposing a quarter inch of bone before it broke off.He kept the stub of the finger in a glass jar for his wife. “To me it’s as much of a commandment from God when he said, ‘they shall take up serpents’ as it was when he ‘thou shall not commit adultery,” Coots said on the show of snake handling.

Coots was just as resolute on Saturday, according to police. Cops and medical crews were called about 8:30 p.m. to a church for reports of a snakebite victim, but Coots had already left, police said. They later found Coots at home and tried to talk him into medical treatment, but he wouldn’t accept it. The crews finally left about 9:10 p.m. They returned about an hour later with the Bell County deputy coroner and found Coots dead. Snake handling has been outlawed in most states, and Coots had made it his mission to carry on the tradition.

Default Re: Snake Handling Preacher Dies After Getting Bit, Refusing Treatment

Big discussion in the reptile community about this guy way before this happened. He was big into illegally transporting snakes across state lines, and has been to some of the reptile shows in SC before trying to buy snakes. Most wouldn't sell to him due to what he was doing with them, so he would go out with his son and friends and catch snakes. Then they wouldn't feed the snakes or give them proper amounts of water and care. This caused the snakes stress, then even more stress from handling them, then finally the snakes would die of starvation. I know I shouldn't say it, but I'm not sorry to see him go. He gave snake keepers a bad name, and treated wonderful creatures like toys.

His church had been in his family long before the TV show started. His father was a snake handling preacher. A member of their church was bitten and killed in 1995 by a rattlesnake during a service.

This "Pastor" sounds like an idiot. Point was proven by him. Rule number one, do not handle poisonous snakes for the enjoyment of others in the name of God. Rule number two, if bitten, get medical help.

His son got bitten by a Cottonmouth while they were catching snakes, didn't get medical help. His arm was so swollen it looked like it was going to explode. He almost died. Sooner or later a person with any common sense would stop doing it.

Then when the National Geographic network comes calling and offers you some money to do a REALITY TV SHOW, you tell them "this is my religion, this is my faith, and my faith is not for sale to some TV network, don't let the door hit you where the good lord split you", and you go about your business of being a preacher and don't sell your faith to some channel that only wants to make money selling tampon and tire advertisements

He didn't do that, he cashed in

The same thing can be said for any religious person that does TV work.

Most wouldn't sell to him due to what he was doing with them, so he would go out with his son and friends and catch snakes. Then they wouldn't feed the snakes or give them proper amounts of water and care. This caused the snakes stress, then even more stress from handling them, then finally the snakes would die of starvation. I know I shouldn't say it, but I'm not sorry to see him go. He gave snake keepers a bad name, and treated wonderful creatures like toys.
I would say the snakes got their revenge.

Default Re: Snake Handling Preacher Dies After Getting Bit, Refusing Treatment

The Gospel of Mark ends at 16:8.

Putting your faith into what a later author wrote is a really bad idea.

He didn't do that, he cashed in
Or you could use it as a way to expand your religious beliefs by having thousands of people watch that normally wouldn't.

I watched a couple episodes and knew in the first 10 seconds these people were crazy.

If I'm in a service and someone breaks out a snake (doesn't matter what kind, even a rubber one) I'm out right then. And I'm not going back.
