Video: Presiding Bishop-elect Michael Curry preaches at General Convention Closing…

first_img Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Submit an Event Listing General Convention 2015, Featured Jobs & Calls Susan Thomas says: Rector Belleville, IL July 4, 2015 at 12:13 am All I can say is…I’ve got goosebumps after listening to him. Wow… Myron Charles Boice says: Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA July 11, 2015 at 9:24 am Bishop Curry is right on the mark. Jesus’ message was “The Kingdom of God is at Hand. Repent!” (i.e. Change) (Mark 1:15) He didn’t talk much about individual sin but wanted to change society ). The command to “Go” first needs to be applied to our own Western world and address the problems of neo-colonialism of globalization, corporate concentration and individual greed. Pope Francis has it right in this regard. Once we change we can then address world issues. Our example of Christian living and compassion at home could be a powerful world influence. It isn’t now! “Physician heal thyself”. Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Submit a Job Listing Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA [Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs press release] “Now I’ve got one word for you,” the Rt. Rev. Michael Curry of North Carolina, Presiding Bishop-elect, told the 78th General Convention of The Episcopal Church in his sermon on July 3. “If you don’t remember anything else I say this morning, it’s the first word in the Great Commission: GO!”Presiding at the Eucharist was Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori. Following the sermon, Jefferts Schori read a letter of congratulations sent by President Barack Obama to Presiding Bishop-elect Curry.The following is the text of the sermon:GO! We are the Jesus MovementThe 78th General Convention of the Episcopal ChurchThe Rt. Rev. Michael B. CurryFriday, July 3, 2015“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:18-20)Before I say anything, I must again say thank you to you, Almighty God, for the privilege and the possibility of serving as Presiding Bishop-Elect. I love this Church, I love our Lord, and God is not finished with us yet.To our Presiding Bishop, who has been an incredible leader—We go back 15 years. We were ordained bishops in the same year, and this is a woman of God. She has led the people of God with courage, passion—Now her passion is a little different than mine. I told the bishops, I want to get a little bit of cool from her.She has been an incredible God-sent and God-inspired leader.And I so look forward to working together with President Jennings. We’ve known each other off and on over the years and—I’m older than she is, I’ll say it that way.I’m probably not.I really do look forward to working together with her. Leadership is not easy, and she has exercised it here at this convention with grace and clarity. I look forward to working with you, my sister.And then lastly—I know they didn’t move the service up to 8:30 so I had more time to preach—but I must offer a word of disclaimer before getting into the sermon. I didn’t know what the text was going to be for today; I had no idea that it would be the Great Commission: “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations.” And when I saw what the text was, all I could do was say, “There’s a sweet, sweet spirit in this place.”Matthew ends his Gospel telling the story and compiling the teachings of Jesus with Jesus sending his disciples out into the world with these words: “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have taught you.” And remember, I am with you in the first century and in the 21st. “I am with you always, even unto the end of the age.”I am more and more convinced that God came among us in the Person of Jesus of Nazareth to show us the way to be reconciled with the God who deeply and passionately loves each and every one of us, to be reconciled and right with that God and to be reconciled and right with each other as the children of that one God who created us all. He came to show us how to get right and how to get reconciled. He came to show us therefore how to become more than simply the human race – that’s not good enough – came to show us how to be more than a collection of individualized self-interests, came to show us how to become more than a human race.He came to show us how to become the human family of God. And in that, my friends, is our hope and our salvation, now and unto the day of eternity.Or to say it another way.Max Lucado who’s a Christian writer says “God loves you just the way you are, but he [doesn’t intend] to leave you that way.”Jesus came to change the world and to change us from the nightmare that life can often be to the dream that God has intended from before the earth and world was ever made.Julia Ward Howe said it this way, during America’s Civil War, an apocalyptic moment in the history of this nation if ever there was one:In the beauty of the liliesChrist was born across the sea.With a glory in his bosomThat transfigured you and me.As he died to make [folk] holyLet us live to set them freeWhile God is marching on.Glory, glory hallelujahGod’s truth is marching on.Now I’ve got one word for you. If you don’t remember anything else I say this morning, it’s the first word in the Great Commission: GO!Don’t do it yet, but go!And the reason I lift up that word “go” is because we are the Jesus Movement.Go!Let me tell you, I began to realize something—I stumbled into it a few months ago— while I was getting ready for Advent and I was reading the Gospel Advent messages for the three-year cycle.I noticed something I hadn’t seen before.I noticed that all four of the Gospels preface the ministry of Jesus not only by invoking John the Baptist, but they preface the ministry of Jesus by quoting Isaiah chapter 40: “Prepare the way of the Lord, / make straight [ ] a highway for our God”And if you look back, go back to Isaiah 40, Isaiah says:Prepare the way of the Lord,…For every valley shall be exalted,Every mountain and hill made low,The crooked straight and the rough places a plain,And in this the glory of the Lord shall be revealed,And all flesh shall see it together.The Bible’s trying to tell us something about Jesus. This brother didn’t come into the world to leave it the way he found it. He came to change it until valleys are lifted up and mountains are brought down, until the world is righted the way god dreamed it. The landscape of our reality and lives is changing.The story behind Isaiah 40—and I won’t get into all the details—is that the people of God found themselves free one day and in slavery the next. This time it was not a slavery of Pharaoh’s Egypt; this time it was the slavery of exile in Babylon.For indeed in the year 586 BCE, the armies of Babylon began a prodigious March of conquest throughout the Middle East. Eventually they came to Palestine. They razed the countryside, moved toward and fought their way to Jerusalem, breached the walls of the Holy City, entered the city and burned much of it, and killed people. They entered the Sacred Temple that Solomon had built and desecrated it. And then they took many of the leading citizens and they carted them off to Babylon where they made virtual slaves of them.It was a nightmare.In Babylon they sang, as old slaves used to sing, “Sometimes I feel like a motherless child, a long, long way from home.”In Babylon one of their poets wrote:By the waters of Babylon,we sat down and wept,When we remembered thee, O Zion.When we remembered what it was like to be home.How shall we sing the Lord’s songIn a strange land?And then it happened, almost as swiftly as they had been enslaved by the nightmare of the world, they were set free by the treaty of God.See the Babylonians who had conquered were conquered themselves. Have you ever played that game King of the Mountain? Somebody’s gonna knock you off.Or as that great philosopher Frank Sinatra said, “You can be riding high in April and shot down in May.”And so an emperor named Cyrus came to the throne in Persia. He conquered the Babylonians and as a kind of “in your face” to the Babylonians, everyone the Babylonians had enslaved, Cyrus set free. He issued an edict of religious toleration. We thought pluralism and multiculturalism was new. Cyrus did that a long time ago.He issued an edict of religious toleration, the Jewish people were set free, they went home, and as they were on their way going home, one of their poets said: Prepare the way of the Lord, for everybody shall be exalted, every mountain made low, the crooked straight.And we’re going home!The nightmare has ended, and God has changed the landscape of reality, His dream has broken out!My friends, all four Gospels preface the story of Jesus by pointing us back to that story in Isaiah. Jesus came to show us the way, to change the landscape of reality, from the nightmare it often is into the dream that God intends and we, my friends, are part of the Jesus movement.So go!Now if you still don’t believe me, go see the movie.Now I’m not commending the movie I’m about to mention because I actually haven’t seen the movie itself, but it’s the movie Son of God. It came out about a year ago if I remember correctly, and it kind of got eclipsed because Noah with Russell Crowe came out at the same time.Everybody knows that would certainly have told the story accurately.Anyway, the movie Son of God—again I’m not commending it because I haven’t seen it.But the trailer is really good.And in the trailer there’s this one scene, where Hollywood conflated several biblical versions, of the story of Jesus calling Simon Peter.And Peter is fishing in the Sea of Galilee and Jesus comes along. Peter’s not catching any fish—and you can see he’s frustrated—and Jesus comes along and says something like, “What’re you doing, brother?”Sometimes when you read the Bible, you gotta read between the lines and imagine what the expressions were like.When Jesus says, “Well, what are you doing?,” Simon Peter says, “I’m obviously fishing.” And then Jesus says, “Well why don’t you put your net on the other side of the boat?” And you know Peter’s been there all day, and you can assume he probably did know something about Jesus, and knew the brother was a carpenter, not a fisherman.And therefore, he was probably thinking, you don’t know a thing about this, but what I’ve been doing all day isn’t working—Which is a parable for the church today, but I’ll leave that alone.Jesus said if it’s not working for you, put the net on the other side and go where the fish are, don’t wait for them to come to you—That’s another message for the church.So anyway, Peter takes the net and casts it on the other side of the boat and then the next scene—now this is in the trailer, I haven’t seen the movie—the next scene is under the water and the camera is looking up.Now this is clearly Hollywood, and you can see Jesus’ image kind of refracted through the water. You can tell it’s Jesus because he has a beard.And then he takes his finger, and he touches the water, and the water starts to quiver and shake like the old song, “Wade in the Water.”“God’s gonna trouble the water.”That’s Hollywood. That wasn’t in the Bible, but neither was Cecil B. DeMille, and I actually like his version of The Ten Commandments.So anyway, the water is quivering. And then the next scene goes up on top, and you see Peter, and probably Andrew and John, they’re hauling all of the fish. They’ve got so many, the net is breaking.Notice they listened to Jesus, and caught more fish than they did when they were doing it on their own.That’s another lesson, but we’ll talk about that later.Anyway they’re trying to pull up all these fish, and then Jesus comes along and says, “Peter, now come and follow me.”Now again, imagine what was going through Peter’s mind: I’m finally catching some fish, and you want me to follow you?And Jesus says, “Come on and follow me,” and Peter says “Where are we going ?!”Jesus says, “To Change the world.”God came among us in the person of Jesus of Nazareth to change the world, to change it from the nightmare it often can be into the dream that God intends. He came to change the world, and we have been baptized into the Triune God and summoned to be disciples and followers of this Jesus and to participate in God’s work, God’s mission of changing and transforming this world. We are the Jesus Movement now.And his way can change the world. The Diocese of Ohio has popularized a way of capturing Jesus’ summary of the law: You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength, and love your neighbor as yourself. On these two hang all the law and the prophets.It’s all about that love.Duke Ellington said, “It don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing.”It’s all about that love!The Diocese of Ohio says it this way:  “Love God, love your neighbor and change the world.”With this I’ll sit down.I will.In May of 1961, now-Congressman John Lewis, one of the Freedom Riders, was a young man. He together with other young men and women, black and white, were Freedom Riders who dared to trust the recent Supreme Court decision with regard to interstate transportation, seeking to end and eradicate Jim Crow in our land. They were on a Greyhound bus, 13 of them, headed from Washington through Virginia and North Carolina, through South Carolina and heading onto New Orleans, Louisiana. When they stopped in Rock Hill, South Carolina, just to fill up the tank, go to the bathroom, get something to eat, they were met there by hooded night riders. They were met there by those who would burn a cross for hatred instead of the reason behind the cross: love.And they were beaten, many of them nearly beaten to death.John Lewis was beaten not only there but also on that Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma. He bears on his body the marks of Jesus, and so do so many others.Now fast forward, 48 years later. John Lewis is a Congressman from Georgia. One of his aides tells him there’s a man named Edwin Wilson, who wants to meet him.Mr. Wilson came in, he met John Lewis, and he said “I’m one of the men who beat you and the other Freedom Riders in Rock Hill in 1961, and I’ve come to apologize and to ask you to forgive me.” Lewis forgave him. He said in the book where he told the story, “I accepted the apology of this man, who physically and verbally assaulted, but this is the testimony of the power of love, the power that can overcome hatred.”This is what Jesus taught us to do.God came among us in the person of Jesus to reconcile us with each other and in so doing to change the world. We’ve got a day of crisis before us in this country.We’ve got a day of crisis before us in this global community.We have enormous challenges before us as Church and followers of Jesus.But as St. Paul said in Romans, “With God before us, who can be against us?”Or as Bishop Barbara Harris said—How do you like that, Paul and Barbara Harris?As Bishop Barbara Harris said, “The God who is behind us is greater than any problem that is ahead of us.”We are part of the Jesus Movement, and that movement cannot be stopped because we follow a Lord who defeated death and follow a Lord who lives.We are part of the Jesus Movement, and he has summoned us to make disciples and followers of all nations and transform this world by the power of the Good News, the gospel of Jesus.And look at us: We’re incredible!Have you seen all the babies crawling around this convention? They’re all over the place!Some of us are babies!Some of us are children. The children are right here. You can’t see them—Hey, guys! Hey!—They’re waving—How are you?Some of us are children!Some of us are young people. They’ve been here.Some of us are young adults, and they’ve been here, and they’re gonna change the world!Some of us have got AARP cards.I do!And some of us—help me, Jesus—some of us are Republicans. And some of us are Democrats.But if you’ve been baptized into the Triune God, you are a disciple of Jesus, and we are all in the Jesus Movement.What God has brought together, let no one tear asunder.Some of us are labelled traditionalists—Help me, Jesus!Ready? And some of us are labelled progressive.I don’t care whether your label is traditionalist or progressive, if you’ve been baptized into the Triune God, you’re in the Jesus Movement.See, we are all different. Some of us are black and some of us are white, some of us are brown.But I like that old song that said:Jesus loves the little children,All the children of the world.Red and yellow black and white,They are precious in his sight.Jesus love the little children of the world.I don’t care who you are, how the Lord has made you, what the world has to say about you, if you’ve been baptized into Jesus you’re in the Jesus Movement and your God’s.Therein may be the Gospel message of hope for the world. There’s plenty of good room.Plenty good room.Plenty good room for all God’s children.For in the beauty of the lilies—Christ was the one who taught us this.With a glory in his bosomThat transfigured you and me.As he died to make [folk] holyLet us live to set them freeWhile God is marching on.Glory.Glory, hallelujah.God’s truth is marching on.Now go.Letter from President ObamaThe following is the text of the letter sent from President Barack Obama to Presiding Bishop –Elect Curry.Dear Bishop Curry,As you prepare to begin serving as Presiding Bishop, i send warm congratulations.Since our Nation’s earliest days, faith communities across our country have shown us how a willingness to believe and a dedication to care for others can enrich our lives.

August 5, 2015 at 1:56 pm Congratulations to the new Primate Bishop Michael Curry, May God Bless You. In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Erna Lund says: July 4, 2015 at 1:42 pm Now the (not-so) secret is out! Bishop Michael Curry is a transformative person and fantastic preacher. North Carolina has known it for a long time and now the world will know. Thank you, Spirit, for gifting him. Thank you, Bishop Michael, for sharing those gifts with us. The Rev. Joyce T. Thorne says: Presiding Bishop Michael Curry Ed Higginbotham says: Rector Albany, NY Cathedral Dean Boise, ID July 4, 2015 at 8:17 pm How do we know God’s will? We do want to be in His will do we not? God’s will has already been delivered to the Church…in the Holy Bible. Some wrestle, as did Jacob, to get God’s blessing, which he finally did after a night of wrestling with the angel. It seems to me that if I come to Scripture with an open mind with no preconceived dogma or prejudices; and hear the plain words of the Bible, with no equivocation, and without commentaries, opinions, studies, proclamations, I hear God saying that it is not good that Man should be alone and so He gave the man a woman to be a companion and helper and they became one flesh and God blessed that union and said that what He had joined together,”… let no made put asunder”. Then Paul, a Jew, a Pharisee and an Apostle to the Gentiles,came along and he saw the evils in the world among which he listed homosexuality and lesbianism and condemned them. Romans is a canonical Book and I accept it along with all the others, so putting it all together it appears to me that God created Man and Woman, blessing that union and condemning homosexuality. I am not going to equivocate about it. That is my Biblical conclusion. Now my church in effect rejects this and in true Anglican style tries to please everyone which we know cannot be done. I accept the fact that the Church should not reject homosexuals but should tell them in plain words why one cannot live in sin and have the other foot in a godly Christian life. Let’s be loving but firm, or else we are puppets of the world. (Or are we just trying to be on the cutting edge of church polity?) Posted Jul 3, 2015 Rector Washington, DC Father Mike Waverly-Shank says: Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Comments are closed. July 27, 2015 at 2:19 am “hear the plain words of the Bible”– I have heard this phrase, or some version of it most of my life, and it has come to sound a mental alarm when I hear it. This idea pretends that it is possible to read the Scriptures and understand the message in them without mediation, and that is a dangerous understanding indeed. The simple truth is that ALL language requires interpretation, so the “plain language” of any text is never all that plain. When we are talking about various books in the Bible, the “plain language” is even less plain, as we are separated by millennia from the time of the writing, and belong to a culture which is far removed from the way the authors of the texts understood the world. As far as that goes, New Testament authors are usually far distant from the authors of the Jewish Scripture, and live in a very different culture, with very different ways of viewing the world. Add to this the problem that any text most of us is likely (or able) to read has been translated into English, and that those who translated it also did so with particular ways of viewing the world, with particular understandings of the best way to translate the text for the reader (and with differing senses of who their reader would be, and what they would be using the text to do), and the claim of adhering to the plain language of the text becomes less and less tenable. The less one is aware that his or her reading of a text involves levels of interpretation, the greater the danger that one injects personal opinion, bias, prior conceptions, and flat out misunderstandings into the text, with no notion at all that this is happening. James Kepper says: Rector Shreveport, LA TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab July 7, 2015 at 10:33 am I commend the newly elected Presiding Bishop Michael Curry on one of the best sermon’s I have ever heard.

July 4, 2015 at 8:54 pm Listening to Presiding Bishop-elect Curry’s message both encouraged and inspired me. The essence of Jesus’ teaching is for us to love and be transformed, and that rang true in Curry’s sermon. July 11, 2015 at 7:07 pm You need to take a course in biblical interpretation. There is more to the bible than personal opinion which is usually conditioned by how one is brought up and the teaching of well-meaning but uninformed Sunday School teachers. If you are advocating following the bible literally then by all means do so, but don’t be selective on which verses you will adhere to. God is Love and you need to reflect on that.

We also urge the authorities to take the necessary measures to ensure that this type of violence does not recur.”After going to Kabul’s Paghman district to cover a protest against the illegal appropriation of some land, the three-member Tolo TV crew were stopped by a dozen gunmen as they headed toward a nearby police station to seek an official comment. Reporter Noorullah Rahmani, cameraman Qais Ahamd and their driver were all beaten and thrown to the ground, and their camera was taken.Rahmani said police witnessed the attack but did not intervene. The local police chief refused to accept any responsibility, blaming it on “trouble-makers.” Rahmani said their assailants were supporters of parliamentarian Abdul Rab Rasul Sayyaf, who was allegedly involved in the illegal seizure of land. Sayyaf has refused to comment on the attack.This is the second physical attack on Tolo TV staff in the past three months. Cameraman Omid Yakmanish was attacked by legislators during a stormy parliamentary session in May.

OC board hears BAAS report

first_imgLocal News By Digital AIM Web Support – February 24, 2021 WhatsApp OC logo wide A report on Odessa College’s new bachelor of applied arts and sciences was presented by professors and students at the OC Board of Trustees meeting. The baccalaureate degrees are in leadership and management and automation. The BAAS in leadership started this spring and automation will begin in the fall. Two-year schools, such as Odessa College are allowed to offer four-year applied baccalaureate degrees under the provisions of Senate Bill 2118, which passed the Texas Legislature in June 2017, and became effective immediately. Vice President for Instruction Valerie Jones said representatives from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges is planning a site visit to OC April 29 through May 2. Oscar Gonzales, department chair for business professions, said he is really excited that the program has taken off. He said he has 22 students, most of whom take the classes online, although the course also is offered face to face. “It’s an exciting adventure for us,” Gonzales said. Armin Rashvand, department chair of engineering and technology, is in charge of the automation degree. The course will start in the fall and be capped at 20 students. He said the course focuses on a lot of hands-on learning. Rashvand added that OC is in partnership with several oil and gas companies and plans are to add more. Jones thanked the board for taking on the initiative and said it will be transformative for the college. Vice President for Institutional Effectiveness Don Wood said Rashvand has become an instructional leader in the fab lab. He noted that the lab has been opened up to the community and Director Cedric Bleimling has more people using it than he can accommodate. He added that Bleimling also offers workshops. Wood also talked about OC’s goal of reaching 10,000 students. He said one way this can potentially be accomplished is through dual credit students at the Ector County ISD high schools and early college high schools. The board approved calling an election for board members Tommy Clark, place 9; Neil Grape, place 6; Royce Bodiford, place 3; and Larry Johnson, place 5. Johnson was appointed to replace the late Ray Ann Zant. Places 3, 6 and 9 are six-year terms and Johnson’s term expires in 2021, Vice President for Business Affairs Virginia Chisum said. Election Day is May 4. Early voting runs from April 22 through April 30. The board also said farewell to Jones. Her last day is Feb. 8, President Gregory Williams said. She is going to Lone Star College as associate vice chancellor of academic affairs. “She’s good people,” Williams said. He added that Jones has made him and everyone associated with her better. Jones said OC has shown what is possible in higher education. The board also agreed to sell properties at 301 Fitch Ave. and 9510 W. Westridge Drive for less than market value.

Completed Foreclosures Still Elevated

He served as sports editor for two suburban newspaper chains in the DFW area and has freelanced for such publications as the Yahoo! Contributor Network, Dallas Home Improvement magazine, and the Dallas Morning News. He has written four non-fiction sports books, the latest of which, The Life of Coach Chuck Curtis, was published by the TCU Press in December 2014. A lifelong Texan, Brian received his master’s degree from Amberton University in Garland. While the number of completed foreclosures during the month of February 2016 was down by 10 percent year-over-year, February’s total is still way above the pre-crisis monthly average, according to CoreLogic’s February 2016 National Foreclosure Report released Tuesday.Approximately 34,000 foreclosures were completed during February, which is down from February 2015’s total of 38,000 but still elevated compared to the monthly average of 2000 to 2006 of 21,000. February 2016’s total was down by 71.3 percent from the monthly peak of 117,776 reached in September 2010.Completed foreclosures represent the total number of homes lost to foreclosure. Since the crisis began in September 2008, approximately 6.2 million homes have been lost to foreclosure. Since homeownership rates peaked in in the second quarter of 2004, the number of homes lost to foreclosure totals 8.2 million.Despite February’s total of completed foreclosures remaining elevated above pre-crisis levels, other default-related metrics were positive. Foreclosure inventory for February 2016 totaled about 434,000, or approximately 1.1 percent of homes with a mortgage nationwide—the lowest rate since November 2007. February 2016’s foreclosure inventory rate of 1.5 percent represented a year-over-year decline of about 32 percent from February 2015’s total of 1.1 percent (571,000 homes).The serious delinquency rate, which is the percentage of residential mortgages that are 90 days or more overdue or in foreclosure or REO) dropped by nearly 20 percent year-over-year in February 2016 down to 1.3 million mortgages, which calculates to 3.2 percent of total mortgages nationwide. It is the lowest level for the serious delinquency rate since November 2007.“Job creation averaged 207,000 during the first two months of 2016, and incomes grew over the past year,” said Dr. Frank Nothaft, chief economist for CoreLogic. “More income and improved household finances have helped bring serious delinquency rates down in nearly every state. However, serious delinquency rates increased in North Dakota and West Virginia, two states affected by price declines for the energy fuel each produces.” Share Save Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days agocenter_img Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Previous: Financial Services Vet Ed Kramer Joins Treliant Risk Advisors Next: Is Government’s Defense in Fairholme Suit Valid?

HUD alleges that Facebook then invites advertisers to express unlawful preferences by offering discriminatory options, allowing them to effectively limit housing options for these protected classes under the guise of “targeted advertising.” You can read the full complaint right here.“The Fair Housing Act prohibits housing discrimination including those who might limit or deny housing options with a click of a mouse,” said Anna María Farías, HUD’s Assistant Secretary for Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity. “When Facebook uses the vast amount of personal data it collects to help advertisers to discriminate, it’s the same as slamming the door in someone’s face.”The Fair Housing Act prohibits discrimination in housing transactions including print and online advertisement on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, disability, or familial status.  HUD’s Secretary-initiated complaint follows the Department’s investigation into Facebook’s advertising platform which includes targeting tools that enable advertisers to filter prospective tenants or homebuyers based on these protected classes.HUD’s complaint alleges that Facebook’s platform violates the Fair Housing Act by enabling advertisers to, among other things:display housing ads either only to men or women;not show ads to Facebook users interested in an “assistance dog,” “mobility scooter,” “accessibility,” or “deaf culture”not show ads to users whom Facebook categorizes as interested in “child care” or “parenting,” or show ads only to users with children above a specified agedisplay/not display ads to users whom Facebook categorizes as interested in a particular place of worship, religion, or tenet, such as the “Christian Church,” “Sikhism,” “Hinduism,” or the “Bible”not show ads to users whom Facebook categorizes as interested in “Latin America,” “Canada,” “Southeast Asia,” “China,” “Honduras,” or “Somalia”draw a red line around ZIP codes and then not display ads to Facebook users who live in specific zip codesHUD also claims that  Facebook promotes its advertising targeting platform for housing purposes with “success stories” for finding “the perfect homeowners,” “reaching home buyers,” “attracting renters,” and “personalizing property ads.”In addition, on Friday the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York filed a statement of interest, joined in by HUD, in U.S. District Court on behalf of a number of private litigants challenging Facebook’s advertising platform.This isn’t the first time critics have leveled complaints at Facebook’s ad practices. In 2017, ProPublica purchased dozens of rental housing ads on the site but specifically requested that they not be shown to a variety of groups protected under the federal Fair Housing Act. That act makes it illegal to run ads that indicate “any preference, limitation, or discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national origin.”The ads targeted men and women, aged 18-65, living in New York City, and highlighted categories such as “first-time buyer,” “house hunting,” and “buying a house.” However, ProPublica requested that their Facebook ads exclude a wide variety of groups, including “African Americans, mothers of high school kids, people interested in wheelchair ramps, Jews, expats from Argentina, and Spanish speakers.” According to ProPublica, all of the ads were approved by Facebook—most of them in five minutes or less.
