Bite me once shame on you ... the new pastor in the "Snake Salvation" church will NOT accept medical treatment today if he's bitten by the rattlesnake that killed his father exactly one week ago.

Cody Coots tells TMZ ... he will indeed handle the deadly snake during the afternoon Kentucky service.  What's more, he says there will be NO anti-venom meds on hand in case the snake attacks again.

And ... if he's bitten and paramedics rush to the church, he'll send them away ... just like his dad Jamie Coots did.

Cody tells TMZ, "I will lay right there and say to everyone, it's God's will.  It's good enough to live by, and good enough to die by."

In EMS we refer to this as "thining the herd". And of course there will be no anti-venin meds available: each shot costs thousands of dollars, needs to be held under refrigeration until used, is specific to the type of snake, and requires a doctor's order. This is suicide by snake.

Crazy people should always wear a sign warning the general population that they are idiots. In this case they wrap venomous snakes around themselves that has already killed one person. Thinning the population one moron at a time.

These people are following a bible Scriptures mark 16:18 and there is nothing wrong with that in fact jesus was speaking to his disciples there now aren't we as Christians suppose to follow Jesus teaching and be like the disciples in our followings? For that reason i understand what these people do this Scriptures but with that said mr. Cody coots just because daddy did it are paw paw does it and stands on it till the day they die is one thing but are you doin it (taking up serpents) because of them are you doing it from your convictions? Adolph Hitler believed to the very end in what he taught, lived for and had many others that believed the same way aand was very dogmatic about their belief and even was known to throw in God quotes to people but is the end result gonna justify are be worth all the pain it leaves behind. Fatherless children, widowed wives etc etc.
