Do dogs go to heaven?

This is the first time I am reblogging a post I disagree with. I respect this blogger’s religious beliefs and I’m a Christian, but sometimes the crazy on this blog is off the charts, with all its hellfire and brimstone pontifications and nutty conspiracy theories about things like the Illuminati. He has a vendetta against Catholics and I do have a problem with that.

I follow his blog anyway because of its WTF factor. I never commented on any of this blogger’s posts before but I couldn’t let this one pass.

When I look into the eyes of my dog (or any dog, or cat for that matter) I see love, pain, shame, joy, sadness, fear– the whole gamut of emotions humans experience there. They must have a soul. I think animals automatically go to heaven because they do not have free will.
Besides, Heaven without pets in it would be hell to me.

  1. I grew up Evangelical Protestant and was taught that animals couldn’t go to heaven because they don’t have souls. (No scripture was ever cited to back this up; it was just stated as fact.) I didn’t believe it then and I don’t believe it now. You might as well ask if there will be trees in heaven, or flowers, or stars, or oceans, or mountains. I swear, some Christians must get some neurotic pleasure out of being killjoys.
