Separation of church and snake?

  • Rattlers, copperheads found at church in Tennessee
  • At least 50 venomous snakes seized from pastor

Fifty poisonous snakes were taken from a church in Tennessee after its pastor was featured on a reality show called "Snake Salvation."

His church incorporates serpent-handling into its worship services.

Rattlesnakes and copperheads were just some of the reptiles seized.
