Insurance Coverage for Raising Christ

This one takes the cake -- it doesn't matter which cake, it takes it.

A report at BBC News today discusses a request made by three women in the UK to have insurance to cover expenses in the event that one of them immaculately conceives the second coming of Christ.

As the director of the insurance company explained: "The people were concerned about having sufficient funds if they immaculately conceived. It was for caring and bringing up the Christ."

Yes, you read that right.

But what's really amazing is that back in 2000, their request was actually approved by the insurance company, which in turn took a policy out on them. Recently, though, amidst outrage from some people, including officials from the Catholic Church, the insurance company removed the policy.

How do you like that? You come back to save the world from eternal damnation and your virgin mom can't even get insurance to cover the expenses.
