← Why I watched a snake-handling pastor die for his faith

I am sorry, but it was absolutely, unequivocally wrong for you to stand by and do nothing when you knew the outcome would be his death. He had his faith, but obviously you didn't share that faith and knew that he would die without medical intervention. Screw you journalistic integrity, a man's life was at stake, and if he was too dumb to admit it, you shouldn't have been.

As much as I deplore the faithheads for their willingness to die for their beliefs, I think standing by and watching, and doing nothing is worse.

Sorry if you are looking for consolation here, there will be none.
