Rumors swirled last week after someone leaked a memo from a church insurance company. The internal bulletin addressed same-sex marriage and said a church that refused to marry a gay couple, if sued, would not be covered under the company’s regular liability policy. That seemed to suggest a serious new problem: Would insurance companies abandon churches that believe marriage can only be between one man and one woman?
“Homosexual agenda causing churches to lose insurance,” one website headline warned.
