WELCH - Billy Bob Simpkins, a Pentecostal Christian and photographer in this West Virginia coal-mining town, has said that he is renouncing cameras. "The good Lord will take all the pictures I need," he told this newspaper.
He also said that he would no longer fill doctor's prescriptions, "because the good Lord heals everything."
He went on to say, "I also baptized my two cats. It was really tough getting them into the bathtub" he added, pointing out the numerous bandages covering his face and arms. He said that since baptizing them, he was no longer going to take them to the veterinarian. "The good Lord will protect them from all evil," he concluded.
