By now you’ve heard that there’s a group of people out there—led by former NYC transit worker Robert Fitzpatrick—who believe that this Saturday, the 21st of May, is judgement day. The end of the world.
If you’re one of the lucky ones who gets called to God’s kingdom before the end of the world, no doubt you’re wondering what will happen to your beloved pets when you’re gone. Well, stuff your worries in a sack mister, because the atheists are here to help.
In 26 states, atheists have set up companies to tend to the pets left behind by Christians. The only stipulation—you have to pay up front.
“You’ve committed your life to Jesus. You know you’re saved. But when the Rapture comes, what’s to become of your loving pets who are left behind?” Eternal Earth-Bound Pets says on its website, offering to “take that burden off your mind.”
The post-doomsday pet rescue service already has 259 clients, who have paid $135 for the first pet and $20 for each additional pet at the same address, to ensure the faithful animal companions are looked after and loved even when their Christian owners have gone to the other side.
Kind of takes the burden off doesn’t it. And it’s only money, something those who are bound for an eternal afterlife with Jesus Christ absolutely won’t need.
Wonder if they hire agnostics, because I could really use the extra money.
