Did you know that there are many sincere Christian people who believe, that at any time, while going about their day-to-day (or nightly) activities, Jesus will appear in the sky and they will be suddenly uplifted to meet him? This long-awaited event is called by these faith-filled religionists as The Second Coming or, The Rapture.
Many will have heard of the Rev. Harold Camping, the California-based Christian radio broadcaster, who recently gained notoriety due to his incorrect prediction that the Rapture would take place on May 21, 2011 at 6 p.m. local time everywhere. Followers of Camping claimed that around 200 million people (approximately 3% of the world’s population) would be raptured.
A source revealed that some of his followers blew all their money on luxury cars and vacations. One man apparently spent all of his savings to buy an ad campaign for the May 21 Doomsday message. There were other reports that some parents persuaded by Camping who used up money put aside for their childrens’ education.
Despite such false predictions (and there have been quite a few over the past two centuries), most fundamentalist Christians who interpret the Bible literally believe that the Rapture could occur at any time. Unfortunately, they believe that it’s just the people chosen by ‘God’ that will be taken up to heaven and so, amongst those left behind, will be their once-loved, and still devoted pets.
When the Rapture finally occurs, you can imagine the dire situation many of these abandoned cats and dogs etc, will be in — shut inside or left in a backyard with little food or water … waiting in vain for their owner who has gone for good!
This is where Eternal Earth-Bound Pets, USA can come to the rescue. They claim to be: “The next best thing to pet salvation in a Post Rapture World.”
EEBP is a group of dedicated animal lovers, and atheists. Atheists, along with Agnostics, non-fundamentalist Christians and adherants of other religions will definitely not be ‘Raptured’ so will be in an ideal position to rescue and care for pets left behind.
EEBP is currently active in 26 states of the US and employs 40 pet rescuers. Their representatives have been screened to ensure that they are atheists, animal lovers, are moral / ethical with no criminal background, have the ability and desire to rescue client’s pets and the means to retrieve them and ensure their care for the pet’s natural life.
This is a serious offer to the literalist Christian community who believe in the Second Coming and honestly care about the future of their pets after the Rapture occurs.
To allay any would-be client concerns, EEBP makes this strict promise: “Each of our representatives 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.”
Anyone who has ‘given their life to Jesus’ and is therefore looking forward to The Rapture, and who presently has a pet who will be left behind, can go to the Web site of Eternal Earth-Bound Pets, USA for more information on how to register your pet.
EEBP is also looking for atheist animal lovers in countries other than the USA to open similar rescue services around the world as literalist interpretations of the Bible have now become quite widespread. If you’re interested, contact EEBP for helpful advice. (But don’t give up your day job.)
