    That was well done ... SPOILER ALERT SPOILER ALERT ... I was shocked when they killed the character off so fast. Don't fuck with Boyd.

    TV, I don't think they believe those bitten go to hell.

    Especially since he died (a couple hours after) doing what he loved.

    He was bitten by the horrible asp.

    Did I read right that he refused medical treatment? That is fucking hardcore.

    Back in my days in the Tennessee woods, we were taught that the Evangelicals who snake-handled did so to prove God's grace for them; that they had no need to fear the snake because God would keep them safe. And if he didn't, that meant doom.

    Jesus told Satan not to put him to the test. Does this make this dude above Jesus?

    Stuff like this really is an embarrassment for sincere, normal churchgoers.
