"Two days after Pastor Jamie Coots was laid to rest after a snake he was handling bit him, and now his 21-year-old son said he is taking over the church and will continue to handle snakes.

Coots died Saturday after a fatal snakebite at Full Gospel Tabernacle in Jesus' Name. On Tuesday, family and friends said goodbye.

Cody Coots, Jamie's son, said following the service at Creech Funeral Home, a smaller group went back to his father's church and handled snakes.

"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," said Cody Coots.

The Young Turks (Winner - Best Political Podcast & Best Political News Site of 2009) were the first original talk show on Sirius satellite radio and the first live, daily webcast on the internet. But that is not the revolution.

We are a rare show that combines all of the news that people care about in one place. We are not afraid to talk about politics and entertainment and sports and pop culture. But that is not the revolution either.

The real revolution is in daring to be honest with people. We don't patronize our viewers or lie to them. We have real conversations and deliver the news honestly.
