A senior center in Missouri is facing a massive fight after it abruptly halted – and banned – a Bible study being held by residents.
The Christian Post reported the American Center for Law and Justice indicated a lawsuit might be needed.
The situation developed at a senior living center in Missouri after residents had organized and held a weekly Bible study over the course of several months.
The meetings were a common area of the facility that also is used for other purposes.
The meetings went on without issue, but then the managers claimed “some residents were purportedly offended by the Bible study,” and canceled it.
Managers also said the facility accepts federal funds, so Bible studies are banned under Federal Housing Administration rules, but Abigail Southerland, of the ACLJ, said the exact opposite actually is the truth.
The Post report explained, “After the resident contacted the ACLJ, the group sent a demand letter to the facility outlining federal law, which, according to Southerland, states ‘not only does the FHA allow a Bible study on federally funded property, but it also expressly prohibits discrimination on the basis of religion in regard to providing facility services.”
She told the Post that if a room is available for other purposes, a Bible study group must be allowed to use it on the same basis.

Southerland explained if the living complex, which was not identified, does not “quickly reverse course for our client, we will file a federal lawsuit to protect her religious liberty.”
IMPORTANT NOTE: To their horror, America’s ruling elites failed to knock out Donald Trump during his four years as president via the fabricated Trump-Russia collusion scandal – conceived and funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign, as the Durham report proves – or through two circus-like impeachment trials. Later came “January 6,” a demonstration-turned-riot by Trump supporters who passionately believed, with good reason, that the recent election – and therefore their country – had just been stolen from them. Members of Congress now want to constitutionally bar Trump from again seeking public office for having instigated “an armed insurrection” (no protester was armed) against America.
Then in March, Trump was indicted in New York on 34 counts of falsifying business records, and in June, still more indictments were filed against Trump – 37 federal criminal charges related to his handling of classified documents. Honest legal experts not in league with the Biden administration openly classify these indictments as somewhere between frivolous and idiotic, not to mention grotesquely politically motivated.
The Deep State’s never-ending persecution of Donald Trump, as well as the incredible back story of the totalitarian agenda Trump’s persecutors are attempting to implement in America and why Trump represents a mortal threat to their nefarious designs – is the focus of the blockbuster July issue of WND’s critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, titled “THE PERSECUTION OF DONALD TRUMP: Why the ruling elites loathe – and fear – the 45th president.”
