A mr. cook pointed out there are more ways than one to get killed or die in any kind of accident but what seems to fly over everyones heads except for a few is that in this Nation we as Americans have a right in the constitution for to a pursuit of happiness and are not to be judged by race, creed or religeous beliefs.Bt some where along the line> Tenn In its all knowing knowledge seems very reluctant to allow everyone to practice their relationship with God.
to the ignorant persns above who made their statements, one of whom was not even a tennessean (whom should hve no voice in this issue at all) and especially Mr. RShultzwho posted his quote from the Bible should also know that >>> Jas 1:13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:<<<
That verse should hush his concerns. but you see each has a right to express their opinions because the Constitution gives them that right.
Speaking from the serpents handler point of view should also be accepted. But being the poor uneducated people that everyone thinks we are, the state feels it should guide us in what to believe. what next, will they stop the Babtist from submerging people under the water in fear they might "Drown" someone.
or maybe tell the holiness churches to stop speaking in an unknown tongue , as it might be a code to an enemy. Or tell the churches
their music is to loud and causing deafness in its members.
I Declare that the state fears the serpent handling practice in churches that believe in all the signs and offices of the ministry along with the works of miracles. The healing of the sick..
The state fear it so much so that they pass a law that was appealed in 1943 again in 1973 and the state will not leave us to practice our faith in the freedoms given to all other Faiths.
Where is our freedom ? From a man made persecution. and yes I have believed in absolute Church Freedom in this land of the free.
