Once again, I don't understand why the Strib included this as a news item. Who really cares about a snake handler being killed by a poisonous snake?

You know, faith healing just wasn't doing it for me with its relative lack of immediate danger, so I'd been looking for something more perilous to spice things up. Glad to know there is a sect out there where I can feel both adrenaline AND venom coursing through my veins simultaneously.

The lengths some people will go to follow religion always baffles me. Think for yourself don't rely on a fictitious book.
