'Snake Salvation'

Deadly Rattler Back in Church

For Round 2

EXCLUSIVE

022314_snake_salvation_launch_v3
The rattlesnake that killed "Snake Salvation" Pastor Jamie Coots a week ago made an encore appearance Saturday night at the same church with Jamie's son at the helm ... and this time no animals or people were hurt.

Cody Coots prayed over a bevy of snakes -- one of which was the rattler that killed Jamie.  The video is insane ... it looks like a revival service with a live band and snakes and worshipers all flailing in the air.

As we told you ... Cody made it clear to us ... if the rattler bit him he would refuse treatment ... just like his dad.

But snakes weren't the only trick up Cody's sleeve.  He also played with fire ... literally.

The cops are absolutely right. TMZ has no legitimate complaint, and has no standing to make such a complaint.

Furthermore, it's their business to practice their religion however they choose. Not even Congress can pass such a law, nor should any such state law ever be enforced, due to a little thing called the 1st Amendment:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof"

It seems like Harvey would know that, since he's an attorney, but apparently running a gossip site rots the brain. :/

This looks like some of that old time voodoo religion. This doesn't look Christian but like some African tribal seance. Maybe that is why the black lady on the other thread said she was quitting TMZ for causing racial divisions. I see no blacks in this church, but the service seems like it has the spirit of their churches sans the snakes and fire.

The Bible does not say to dance with snakes. It says God put enmity between the snake and man. It does not say to tempt danger. It says to have faith that if you are walking with God, if a snake happens to latch onto your arm, or you are poisoned somehow, or if some other danger should arise, God will rescue you from it.

I don't know if these people are just ignorant or if they really just want to put on a carnival to get people in the door. With all the dancing, fire waving, snake handling and raunchy music, you might as well be at the town fair.

I bet these people would be shocked to learn that to follow Christ correctly, that they should be practicing Judaism. Can you imagine this scene going on in a Jewish house of worship?.

Survival of the fittest. Let them get bit. Tem less food stamp recipients. Works for me. I am sure God said "don't do anything for yourself. Just sit there like morons and I'll do all the work." And these people breed.......
