Not so much the headline as the comments under the article. Proof indeed, if proof were needed, that it isn't only the cream that floats to the top :cry:

The rattler that took a deadly bite out of "Snake Salvation" pastor Jamie Coots will not be killed ... in fact, the family will deploy the snake during next Saturday's service ... TMZ has learned.

Coots was bitten Saturday while he was preaching to his congregation and died after refusing medical help ... believing he was protected from the venom by God's power.

Jamie's son Cody tells us, the family still believes in God's protective power against snake venom -- despite his father's death -- telling us his dad felt it was much better to die from a snakebite than a stroke or car accident ... in fact, for him a snakebite was "God's way."

Cody -- who will take over as pastor -- says, "It was God saying, this is how you wanted it, and it's your time to go ... If he didn't plan [to die this way] he would have stayed alive."

As we reported ... even though using snakes during religious services is illegal in Kentucky, the police chief told us he would NOT enforce the law.

Its terrible but who leaves a 6 day old baby on its own with a dog strolling about.
The poor mother is going through hell but a bit of common sense would have prevented this

I believe that.
However, you don't leave a baby alone with a dog.
Sorry for their loss, though.
On with their heads! I'm the clown prince of fools

Love and laughter you see are the new currency

Are you a Daily Mail reader by any chance, Bouncy? Sorry I never open links to their stories - I'd rather have porn found on my PC than Daily Mail articles. :lol:
