Atheists offer to care for pets left behind by rapture


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.

As I recall, there's also a company that will store and pass on messages to people who were 'left behind' once the faithful are raptured away.

Email I got back from them;

"Dear Dan,


Thank you for your interest in becoming a pet rescuer.

At this time we are not aggressively expanding our area or pet rescue teams, wanting to keep tight control during our start up phase. I will keep your email on file should we decide to expand to Florida.

If you appreciate what we've done here you will enjoy my new book "The Atheist Camel Chronicles" by Dromedary Hump. It has been receiving rave reviews on Amazon.com and throughout the internet, and has been in the top 25 best selling atheist themed books on amazon since July... top 10 since September.

Signed copies at a special price are available through my book's website (for USA buyers only) http://theatheistcamelchronicles.blogspot.com/ . Also available on Amazon.comUS for US and international buyers.

Yours in reason,

Bart
aka Dromedary Hump"
