Quote of the Day

"A lot of persons are concerned about their pets, but I don't know if they should necessarily trust atheists to take care of them."Todd Strandberg, founder of the infamous evangelical rapture website, raptureready.com, offering his reservations about the Eternal Earth-Bound Pets service being offered by atheist Bart Centre, 61, a retired retail executive in New Hampshire. For $110 for a 10-year contract (and only $15 more per additional pet!), Centre hooks up rapture-ready Christians with doomed atheists who will take care of pets left ownerless after the rapture.

I'm not sure I can accurately evaluate the width of the cavernous divide between my thought processes and those of someone who so fervently believes the rapture to be a Real Thing in the World (someday) that his primary objection to the idea of charging people $110 to care for their pets after they're raptured outta here is those pets being looked after by atheists.

Who might do something untrustworthy, like cast Fido into a lake of fire and pocket their piddling fee.
