Christian Pets after the Rapture – Pure Hypocrisy

The After the Rapture Pet Care site is biblical hypocrisy of the highest order. Either that, or it’s one of the best and most cutting spoofs out there. But the more I read over there, the more convinced I am that it’s for real. Which makes it one of the nastiest, most typically self-centred fundie Christian abominations I’ve seen in a while.

It’s all about Christians registering to have their pets taken care of after the Rapture. You heard that correctly: after the Rapture, which is supposed to initiate anywhere from 3.5 to 7 years of horror and tribulation in the world, these Christians want their little pets cared for.

As Sharon Moss, the proprietor says,

Our pets are given to us by God for us to care for. We are stewards of their lives. Should we simply forget them at the Rapture, allow them to starve or worse?

Now, I have cats, and even when I was a Christian, it simply seemed entirely biblical, loving, and logical that if I was in heaven, so would be my pets. Because frankly, any place that wouldn’t let them in would not be worth my attention, no matter who else was there (God included). But God was loving, and wouldn’t do such a horrid thing. So they would be there. Logical.

But excuse me, Ms. Moss? Isn’t the Great Commandment that you should go out and preach in the hopes of converting all people? God is love, and wants all men [sic] to be saved, yes? You know — before the Rapture and the Tribulation, and all that?

But look at the logic of this post-rapture pet establishment. It depends on the non-Christian administrators who are left behind never being converted in the meantime. And once the Rapture happens, and they realize that they’ve been left behind and the world is about to sink into disaster, they’re expected to be good and kind and self-sacrificing enough to hunt down the registered pets rather than, you know, trying to see to their own survival.

These Christians are not setting up rescue and comfort and care organizations for their non-Christian friends, but for their pets. Nor are they trying to convert these non-Christians so they won’t have to go through the Tribulation. If they did, the whole thing would fail. Even though within at most seven years after the Rapture, Jesus is going to burn the whole world anyway. That is, after these good-hearted pet-rescuing “non-Christian administrators” have endured all those plagues, all that war, all that starvation, the terrible choice of dying or getting the Mark of the Beast — all that stuff.

No, take care of the pets. To hell (probably literally) with their friends. Not to mention that Jesus commanded they try to convert them.

This is just abominably wrong and self-centred and tiny and whiny and “poor me poor me and my cat and who cares about the people” to be believed.

North American “Christians” are truly among the lowest of the low.

    To quote one of many pithy lines from the film “All About Eve” (heh, a rather appropriate title), “well doesn’t that just beat the record for running, jumping, and standing gall!”
