cody-cootsDays after Pastor Jamie Coots of Kentucky’s Full Gospel Tabernacle in Jesus Name church died of a snake bite, his 21-year-old son, Cody Coots, says he is taking over and will continue to handle snakes as performed by his father, who appeared in the National Geographic reality show “Snake Salvation.” Members of the Middlesboro church wanted to handle snakes even at the funeral of his father, who had refused medical care after the bite, Coots told WBIR. “I knew people were wanting to do church and we couldn’t do that in the funeral home because that would be breaking the law,” he was quoted as saying. “I didn’t want to disrespect the funeral home by saying ‘hey, we’re wanting to have snakes here’.” More
