Oh, She of Little Faith!

How do Pentecostals spin these unfortunate incidents? Do they say her faith simply wasn’t strong enough and she therefore displeased GOD, who then punished her with intense pain, internal bleeding, paralysis, and a slow, ignominious death?

Or do they say she pleased GOD so much that he rewarded her with intense pain, internal bleeding, paralysis, and a slow, glorious death?

"Ah don' git it...The bahble sez that thar snake wern't s'posed ta hurt me, but hit shore did!"

In a world chock full o' fucked-up religions, this one is spectacularly fucked-up. On the other hand, at least these nuts only kill themselves ...

Last time I heard about something like this happening it was the lack of faith that caused the problem.

Personally I think it was the stupidity and the insistence to take one passage from the Bible and take it to mean "handle real live snakes."
