Having known snake handlers I can say this about that, theologically they are very similar to ordinary Methodists ~ except they take snakes to church with them.

They teach that if you do not use snakes in church you will go to hell.

Any snakehandler who tells you he's Pentecostal isn't really using poisonous snakes ~ you get to jumping and jerking around those critters will bite you right now.

That is an interesting picture. I was born and raised in West Virginia, which, as I understand it, is one of two states in which snake-handling during religious services is still lawful. Once in a while I see a headline come from WV along the lines of “Pastor with 30 years of snake-handling experience dies from snakebite”.
