In what is the strangest story I've heard in a while, an insurance firm has been forced to withdraw their insurance cover for three women in Scotland that covers them in the event of them being chosen by God as the vessel for the second coming of christ. If the women secured a payout, £1 million would be made available to bring up the messiah, so says the BBC.
The MD of 'britishinsurance.com' said, "The people were concerned about having sufficient funds if they immaculately conceived." Hmm.. well I suppose it's a risk we all take, even men I suppose, considering a God as 'all–powerful'.
However, whether they'd taken out the small print of not being liable for 'acts of God' is not clear.
