Driver’s Insurance to be Cancelled Over ‘Christ’ on Car

What does having a sticker that says “Christ” on a car have to do with insuring the vehicle? Apparently a lot, as one woman is facing losing her insurance because she has stickers on her car with the word “Christ” on them.

Rev. Wena Parry, from Cymmer in Neath Port Talbot, told BBC Wales’ “X-Ray” program she has been treated unfairly by Age UK Insurance because of her religious beliefs.

“Every opportunity I have I want to tell people about Jesus,” she said.

“I reckon there must at least a million people who have read the texts on my car and no one has had a problem with it before. There might be somebody within that company that hates Christianity.”

The 76-year-old pastor spent $180 on the red-and-black-lettered messages “spreading the gospel” on her silver Vauxhall Zafira.

But Age UK Insurance said it never would have insured the woman if it had known about the statement on the hood and the side of her vehicle.

Company officials first became aware of the messages when Parry submitted a claim on her insurance after thieves damaged her exhaust and stole a piece of the engine. They couldn’t help but notice the mentions of Christ in the photographs.

The insurers told Parry she had 10 days to explain why she hadn’t informed them about the stickers, warning “the policy may be declared void.”

Age UK Insurance sent her a letter, reading: “These modifications do not fit our acceptance criteria for motor insurance.

“Cover would have been declined if we had been made aware of these at the time of purchasing your policy.”

The insurance company denies that their threat has anything to do with religion, but it’s hard to understand how stickers of the word “Christ” have anything to do with insuring a car in case of an accident. For her part, Parry has already found another insurance company to give her business to, and Age UK might find themselves losing business from Christians as word of this gets out.
