A Pentecostal reverend known for preaching with the help of a rattlesnake coiled around his arm lost his life when one of the creatures suddenly bit him.
Mack Randall Wolford, pastor at the Full Gospel Apostolic House of the Lord Jesus in Matoaka, West Virginia, died hours after receiving the deadly bite on Sunday – the day after his 44th birthday.
Wolford’s father, who was also a serpent-hand pastor, died in the same way nearly 30 years ago.
Somewhere in his Daddy Wolford’s obit, it said – I DIED FROM A SNAKE BITE – LET THAT BE A LESSON SON. But nooooooo. Jr had the calling and it included rattlers.
Wolford was holding a ‘homecoming’ service outdoors at Panther State Forest about 70 miles away from Matoaka while handing the rattler, which is seen by his followers as a sign of faith.
‘His daddy passed away the same way, from a rattler. He knew the risks. All of us around here are that way.’
If you find this even remotely funny, (stupid genes run in the family .. or … thinning the herd) drop to your knees and beg forgiveness. You are also going straight to hell with the other 63 million laughing their asses off.
