I saw this link today via a webcomic I read. I thought it was a joke URL but just for the hell of it I went to look. I shouldn't have done that, because now my brain is exploding and blood is shooting out my nose (phrase TM Lewis Black).

I give you: "After the Rapture Pet Care".

http://www.aftertherapturepetcare.com/

Yes, these people are actually attempting to make arrangements for their pets to be taken care of in case the Rapture occurs. Because, you see, being good Christians, they're all going to be caught up by the Rapture, but their pets will be left behind. (I guess because they don't have any souls?) So they're working with non-Christian "volunteers" who have promised to take care of these lost, forlorn, left-behind pets after the Rapture occurs.

........I have no words.

You are looking at this wrong.

This is atheists taking money from stupid people.

I'm not so sure about that. They claim that half the fees go to various administrative functions, which is another way of saying that they use up the $$ themselves. The other half supposedly goes into a savings account which is to be "untouched until the Rapture", but there's no mention of how the volunteers would access that account or how the funds would be distributed.

Additionally, there's a disclaimer that the volunteers are not paid for their time and that the odds are "very small" that the funds in the account will be sufficient to pay for the pets' care for even a short time.

Sounds like a lose-lose situation to me. :)

cheers,
Phil

Geez, and as a good christian I went ahead & gave Lenny to a good home now, you know, just in case... wouldn't want him starving here alone.

Seriously, I am amazed that anyone would come up with such an idea... and more power to 'em. Taking money from stupid people is, and should be legal.

On that note, i think I'll start a website to sell my condo, you know, should I no longer need it after the rapture... Hey, I could use a few bucks too!

Hi! This is Tad Williams. Please excuse the interruption to your regularly scheduled bloggery. People here have mentioned my work, or love fantasy and science fiction, so I just wanted to pop in and say that anyone interested in reading a chapter from my new book, SHADOWRISE, should drop an email to:

deborah.shazam@batnet.com

and we'll send one to you. We won't do anything rotten with your email address, either, we promise.

Thanks – Tad
