Virginia Minister Faces Possibility of Eviction For Hosting Bible Study?!

It seems that a Bible study in this senior living facility is frowned upon by both the management and some of the leftist residents that live there. The management and staff at the Evergreens at Smith Run in Fredericksburg, VA have now gone so far as to threaten the Lutheran Pastor with eviction. He cannot even hold a small Bible study in the privacy of his own apartment. That is a constitutional issue in any way that you look at it. Here are the sordid things that have been imposed on the Pastor.

As Written and Reported By Todd Starnes for Fox News:

A semi-retired Lutheran minister in Fredericksburg, Virginia faces the possibility of being evicted from a senior living community because he’s been hosting a small Bible study in the privacy of his apartment, his attorney alleges.

First Liberty Institute, a law firm that specializes in religious liberty cases, is representing Pastor Ken Hauge. The pastor has accused the management of The Evergreens at Smith Run of a pattern of verbal abuse and harassment directed at Christians who live in the complex.

“The threat of eviction follows repeated religious discrimination by The Evergreens management, including forcing Hauge to refer to his event as a ‘Book Review’ rather than a ‘Bible Study,’” First Liberty attorney Hiram Sasser wrote in a letter to the corporate owner of the community.
