Yes, it's true, I am actually setting up a fundamentalist chapel where handling of serpents and speaking in tongues will be mandatory.
Any mention of evolution will result in you being cast into a pit of Piranhas, and we will have no more mention of Cichlid biogeography and vicariance, as we all know the world is only 5000 years old, or some such nonsense.

I know of a few chapels like that one in West Virginia. The snakes are ok, but stay away from the kool-aid.

Are you considering applications from the states?

As far as I am aware applications from anyone with the required qualities will be considered. There is a finite limit to the relocation expenses that are allowed though, I believe.
