    A snake-handling pastor who appeared on the National Geographic television reality show “Snake Salvation” has died after being bitten by a snake during a weekend church service in Kentucky.

    When an ambulance arrived at the church at 8:30 p.m. Saturday, they were told that Coots had gone home, the Middlesboro Police Department said in a statement. Contacted at his house, Coots refused medical treatment. Emergency workers left about 9:10 p.m. When they returned about an hour later, Coots was dead from a venomous snake bite, police added.

    you tell a lie long enough and good enough, you start to believe it yourself.

    That's what they call blind faith recognizing the whole. Not a choice given in sight. Some things just don't work out.
