Televangelist Rod Parsley's World Harvest Church Refuses to Fully Shoulder $3.1M Settlement for Daycare Beating

World Harvest Church, led by Pentecostal prosperity teacher Rod Parsley, was fighting its insurer in court over having to completely shoulder a $3.1 million settlement for the beating of a 2-year-old child on its Columbus, Ohio, campus.

An attorney representing World Harvest Church argues that, due to an earlier appeals court ruling in its favor, Grange Mutual Casualty Co. was responsible for helping to pay the $3.1 million settlement. The insurer’s legal team, meanwhile, asserts that a clause in the company’s contract with the megachurch absolves it of providing coverage for acts of abuse or molestation, the Columbus Dispatch reported.
