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.
