This is hilarious:
As the Apostle Paul describes in Thessalonians as quoted above, at some point in the future Jesus will come in the air, catch up the Church from the earth, and then return to heaven with the Church. This is known as the Rapture and it will be glorious. But what of our pets? Who will take care of our pets when we’re gone?
You have to read it to believe it. The thrust of the site is that they’re setting up a network of non-Christian volunteers to take care of the left-behind pets once they’ve been raptured-up.
I laughed until I cried. Ask Father. He said it was “19th century heresy meets 21st century obsession.”
One of the funniest and most bizarre things: They’re more concerned with taking care of little Fluffy than with the souls of those caretakers!
Again, you have to read it. Truth is stranger than fiction.
[On the very slight off-chance that someone reading this may be confused as to where the Orthodox stand on the heresy of the Rapture: we reject it.]
