ALSTEAD, N.H. (AP) -- Christians who believe they'll vanish from Earth in the rapture can now hire a company to care for their pets.
For $110, Eternal Earth-Bound Pets offers a 10-year contract guaranteeing that an atheist will adopt the pet that's left behind by its raptured owner. Additional pets can be covered for $15.
The company's owner, Bart Centre, says his pet rescuers definitely won't be raptured because they've all blasphemed the Holy Spirit in writing, committing what they believe Jesus called the unforgivable sin. His Web site says the rescuers are animal lovers who "are committed to step in when you step up to Jesus."
Centre says he doesn't believe in God or the rapture, but is offering a service for those who do.
