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."

Let him off himself. It's time we start weeding out the stupid. Taking away most warning labels would be a good way to start.

Don't these churches usually milk the snakes before the congregation shows up? That why if the snake bites there's much less venom? Guess someone forgot last weekend.
