A “married” lesbian couple is taking a Christian retirement community to court over its requirement that prospective residents abide by Christian moral principles. Friendship Village is a non-profit retirement community “guided by Biblical values” that holds “Faithful Service” as one of its core values. Mary Walsh and Bev Nance of Shrewsbury, Massachusetts applied in 2016 to move to Friendship Village. Walsh and Nance have been together for 37 years and got “married” in 2009. After they paid a $2,000 deposit and got placed on a waiting list, they say Friendship Village rejected their application on the grounds that it would violate the community’s “longstanding” policy that only recognizes marriages of one man and one woman.
