Pastor Rod Parsley, Pastor Of World Harvest Church Can’t Claim Insurance Coverage For Boy’s Beating!
Reader Pastor Rod Parsley Ohio megachurch is not entitled to collect $1 million from its insurer toward a $3.1 million settlement with the parents of a 2-year-old boy beaten by a daycare worker, the state supreme court ruled on Thursday (May 12). The justices unanimously rejected a bid by World Harvest Church in Columbus to collect the amount from Grange Mutual Casualty Co. following a lengthy battle in Franklin County courts. An abuse and molestation exclusion in Grange’s insurance policy with the church on Gender Road bars coverage of the damages, Chief Justice Maureen O’Connor wrote in the court’s opinion.
When the church settled the case in 2009, Senior Pastor Rod Parsley took to the internet with a fundraising appeal to help the church deal with a “diabolically, demonically inspired financial attack.”
