Truth Is Stranger #17: Insurance Won't Cover Second Coming Incidentals

(Those stingy penny pinchers!)

Insurance Won't Cover Costs of the Second Coming

Insurers have withdrawn the cover on their virginity taken out by three sisters in the event of the second coming of Christ.

Essex-based Britishinsurance.com confirmed it had provided the £1m policy, but said it was reviewed on Thursday following complaints.

The firm said the women from Inverness had renewed the policy since 2000.

The cover was meant to pay for the cost of bringing up Christ if one of them has a virgin birth.
FYI, this sounds theologically fishy to me. I've never heard of the second coming of Christ as a BIRTH. And...do you think there is going to be a lot of time to collect between the end of time and all?

This sort of scam is absolutely typical of what a devout Catholic puts up with.

Its also rather presumptuous on their part to think to think that Christ would be born to one of them.

To do list:
1. Raise Jesus
2. Last Judgment
3. Collect insurance payout
4. Apocalypse

I remember reading somewhere that Jewish women were always proud to be pregnant because they might be carrying the messiah.

I don't think this is anything like that though.

I remember seeinga bumper sticker that said, "When the Rapture occurs,this car will be without a driver." I thought that was mighty presumptuous.

Those Rapture stickers now have a sequel:
'When the Rapture comes, can I have your car?'
