No wonder people think Christians are weird!

A “snake-handling” pastor in Kentucky was one of 10 peopleĀ arrested in a crackdown on the venomous snake trade. CNN reports…

More than 100 snakes, many of them deadly, were confiscated in the undercover sting after Thursday’s arrests, said Col. Bob Milligan, director of law enforcement for Kentucky Fish and Wildlife.

Sigh.
