Whoops...

From the Washington Post:


"Mark Randall “Mack” Wolford was known all over Appalachia as a daring man of conviction. He believed that the Bible mandates that Christians handle serpents to test their faith in God — and that, if they are bitten, they trust in God alone to heal them."

God didn't come through with his end of the bargain, I'm afraid.  On Saturday, one of Mark's pets bit him, and he died.

"He was the kind of man reporters love: articulate, friendly and appreciative of media attention."

I'm betting he's not so articulate and friendly any more.

Now, if only we could convince the political equivalents of Reverend Mark to quit handling snakes like Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum, we could all avoid getting bit.

Anonymous, I am growing increasingly impatient with your stupid and off topic remarks. Either stick to the subject and have something reasonable to say about it or you are out of here.

what was the subject again? Oh yeah Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum are snakes.
Now why didn't I come to that conclusion instead of going off topic?

Green Eagle said...

Because it's my blog, so nothing I say is off topic.

Anonymous, why don't you start a blog, and Green Eagle will happily come over there and treat you to some opinions of his own?

And, ironically enough, Reverend Mark wins the Darwin Award.

And I think Anonymous came in second.

Genius. Even if he died the snake would get the blame again... a perfect Biblical circle.
