Elderly Couple Threatened With Eviction if They Host Bible Study at Home

An elderly Christian couple could be evicted from their Virginia senior living community if they hold a Bible study.

But the two are fighting back. They've now filed a federal lawsuit, alleging religious discrimination.

Ken and Liv Hauge have been married for 64 years. The 87-year-old Ken and 85-year-old Liv study the Bible together during personal devotions in their Fredericksburg apartment.

It's a peaceful scene, but if the retired Lutheran minister and his wife invited others over to study the Bible, they could be evicted.

"Specifically we're not allowed to have Bible study. And in that 21/30 Notice, it went broader than covering the club room," Ken told CBN News. "It specifies that I am not permitted— because it's considered conducting business for me—to lead a Bible study."

The threat of eviction by the property management and the parent company says Ken and Liv could be evicted for breaching their lease if they hold a Bible study in the community room or even in their own apartment.

"Tremendous sadness and just a great disappointment that the company would develop such a discriminatory policy against the community of especially Christian faith," Ken shared.
