Atheist Group Offers to Take Care of Christians' Pets After the Rapture

If you have to leave Fido behind, wouldn't you like to know he's in the care of a loving atheist?

I'm honestly not sure what Earthbound Pets really is -- probably the biggest hoax on the internet, but one thing is sure -- it is hilarious. Here's the premise: "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 takes that burden off your mind."

This sounds fantastic -- after all, when the rapture comes, there is probably going to be a lot of things on your mind. Really, what does one even pack? So it's nice to get arrangements for your pets, who apparently will spent eternity with the atheists and gays and gay atheists, all sorted out before hand.

Here's more from their site:


We are a group of dedicated animal lovers, and atheists. Each Eternal Earth-Bound Pet representative is a confirmed atheist, and as such will still be here on Earth after you've received your reward. Our network of animal activists are committed to step in when you step up to Jesus.
