Python would have to be Satanism. What other language is associated with a snake?
Where I grew up, some Christians used snakes in their worship services: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snake_handling

    Snakes figure prominently in many religions. See snake worship and snake god, for example(s).

    Snake handling

    Yeah, but that's not snake worship. And those snakes -- like the serpent in the Garden of Eden -- are venomous vipers, not constrictors like the python.

    On the other hand, "python" itself is named for an ancient Greek deity, Pytho.

    Bottom line: "Python would have to be Satanism" is a rather silly thing to say. And "What other language is associated with a snake?" is an utter non sequitur.

    I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon stuffed with 16,000 zombies.
