A chaplain from Mercy Hospital in Cincinnati is going to be at a new animal shelter today to bless pets that people bring in. I wonder if they would bless a snake, considering original sin.

What's next? Baptisms for pets? I'd pay to see them try to baptise cats that haven't been declawed. lol

Reminds me of the movie Jesus camp where the woman that runs the camp goes around and blesses the room and the chairs and even the Powerpoint presentation. Apparently, if a program has a bug in it, it is Satan's fault.
When I lived in Miami, a local Catholic church had a "blessing of the cars" once a year. A good friend of mine, a theist, took her car each year. I never went with her, but now I wish I had just to see what it's all about.

Also, here in my little town, one Methodist church had a "blessing of the backpacks" at the beginning of the school year.

Blessing of the pets is at least for a living being, versus inanimate objects. It's all hilarious to me!! Religious folks never cease to amuse me.
