Pastor Faces Eviction For Hosting Home Bible Study
An semi-retired Lutheran Minister in Virginia is facing potential eviction for hosting a Bible Study within the privacy of his own home.
In Fredericksburg, Virginia a Lutheran Minister is facing a potential eviction from a senior living community for hosting a small Bible Study in the privacy of his own home.
First Liberty Institute is representing Pastor Ken Hauge who is alleging that management, of The Evergreens at Smith Run, is attempting to evict him wrongfully.
Furthermore, the Pastor has claimed that management is continually harassing and verbally lashing 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.
Todd Starnes of the Todd Starnes Radio Show reached out to investigate what was going on at the apartment community. Starnes contacted the Community Realty Company who directed him to local management.
