The Perils of Ministry

My faithful readers, it is tough to be a pastor sometimes. With tongue planted firmly in cheek I submit for your consideration the following stories where pastors (and one Wiccan leader) faced danger in the practice of their religion:

Snake-Handling Pastor Arrested
I’m not even going to comment on this one. And no, just because I am from the South does not mean I have experience in this.

Pastor Injured in Motorcycle Accident in Church
When I tell people that nonsense like this goes on in some churches they look at me like I’m making this stuff up. I hope the guy’s okay but he shouldn’t have been doing this in the first place. Just preach the Word, man!

This last is obviously not even remotely Christian but I’m throwing it in just because:

Wiccan Accidentally Stabs Herself in Foot With Sword During Good Luck Ritual
Apparently the old Wiccan good-luck ritual doesn’t work as well as the Wiccans think it does.
