"We have had a situation where our property manager got phone calls at home calling her a devil worshipper."
--One Management Vice-President Jenny Petri, commenting on her company's decision to ban a Bible study group from meeting in a lounge of one of their apartment properties.
Residents of Heritage Court Apartments in South Carolina received a notice Monday that all religious activities were prohibited in the complex's common areas. It was particularly directed at a group of about 20 residents that meet on Monday nights for a one-hour Bible study. The management company said it issued the ban to avoid accusations of religious preference. The ban was temporarily lifted today after federal officials questioned the new policy.
