The Most Idiotic Christian Practice?
It would be hard to specify the ‘worst’ aspect of Christianity:
Would it be priests raping young boys and having other priests cover it up so they could go to a new parish and rape new boys?
Would it be pastors who use their position of authority to sexually molest girls and women in their own congregation?
Would it be the pulpit pimps who financially rape stupid people with ridiculous ‘promises’ of wealth if only the sheeple give them their money?
Or could it be the parents who abuse their children to death by refusing them modern medicine and instead allow their children to die because they tried to pray them healthy?
Whatever the ‘worst’ is, the stupidest, most idiotic practice in Christianity is probably the sheer lunacy of snake handling. You see, in the examples above you put other people at risk or abuse other people, but in snake handling you just put yourself at risk–though to be fair, by modeling this for your children you put them at risk since you socialize them into the same stupidity.
OK, it’s all insane stupidity that cannot be gradated.
Anyways, in this video members of a church in Georgia handle rattlesnakes and drink strychnine because of their foolish literal reading of the Bible.

Sweet baby Jesus! What is wrong with these people? I like the part where the guy picks up the deadly snake, and then starts dancing around with it! Yes, this deadly poisonous snake is not deadly enough, let’s dance around and shake it, and really piss it off…
