I wonder about the legality of this. Would there be statistics to back up their position?

I haven't read any news articles about church attacks because G/L/B/T folks are included (even in the ministry). 

I have no idea about the laws regarding denying insurance.  I am glad the church found insurance.   One more reason that anti-discrimination laws need to include G/L/B/T protections.   sigh

Unflipping believable.  (right now bad words want to come out of my mouth) I work part time for a UCC in the area, & they are open & affirming (and I don't have to attend, so that's even better ;-) )  Of course it's legal, it's not right, but it's legal. Jerks.
