I consider myself 40 percent Catholic and 60 percent Baptist … but I’m in favor of every religion, with the possible exception of snake-chunking. Anybody that so presumes on how he stands with Providence that he will let a snake bite him, I say he deserves what he’s got coming to him.

Earl Kemp Long (1895-1960) American politician, orator.
(Attributed)

Quoted in The New Yorker (4 Jun 1960)
