Five big questions about the ‘Jesus’ wife’ discovery

first_imgFive big questions about the ‘Jesus’ wife’ discovery September 25, 2012 at 2:18 pm Students of the first century and early Christianity often point out that it was “expected” that a Jewish rabbi would be married. Some say, “it was virtually required and a Rabbi not married would have been somehow morally suspect?!” New Testament personalities, disciples, enemies, and friends usually called Jesus, “Rabbi”. It could even be surprising if He were not married?! Rector Washington, DC Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Tags Press Release Service September 21, 2012 at 4:24 pm I think it is a very interesting discovery. Assuming that the papyrus is genuine it seems to be a fourth-century fragment of a probably late second century lost gospel, probably Gnostic in origin. Perhaps one day someone will find more of it. It could be that its author thought Jesus had been married, or it could be that he was using the phrase metaphorically. Historically speaking, it says nothing of Jesus’ actual marital status. As Barbara Harris once said, in the ancient world marriage was a contract between two men — the groom and the father of the bride. As such it was a major instrument for the subjugation of women, and I am doubtful for this reason that Jesus would have bought into it by being married himself. I do think, however, that he had women apostles, such as Mary Magdalen and Joanna, mentioned in the New Testament. John Speller says: This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Ecumenical & Interreligious September 21, 2012 at 4:29 pm I’m curious about no. 5. Why does what the Vatican think/say about it matter? If the Vatican says “yes” does it mean the document is authentic? Associate Rector Columbus, GA September 24, 2012 at 12:45 pm The Vatican as it represents Roman Catholicism is very influential. Whether Christians around the world like it or not, what the pope says does affect non-Roman Christians. Were the Vatican to agree with the text (which would be silly) and then it was proven the text was a forgery then the Vatican would either have to back-step quickly or somehow attempt to defend its authenticity, both of which would embarrass the Vatican. It’s a smart move for the Vatican to stay silent. Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Julian Malakar says: September 21, 2012 at 10:43 pm All these are wild speculation and some special interest groups try to change Christian’s believe by inducing confusion out of a single card size piece of paper with two words “my wife”. These special groups not weighing with biblical evidences that build up the Bible, draws conclusion that they found evidence that Jesus Christ was married. It is like the story of “Elephant and the blind men.” The Christian faith is not built in a day by a single piece of paper with mere two words. Jesus Christ is Son of God, who is alpha and omega and saves everybody’s souls who believe Him and repent. The Rev. John T. Farrell says: Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 [Ecumenical News International] In a surprise announcement that seemed scripted by the novelist Dan Brown, a Harvard professor revealed an ancient scrap of papyrus on Sept. 18 that purports to refer to Jesus’ wife.The so-called “Gospel of Jesus’ Wife” presents a dialogue between Jesus and his disciples, said Karen King, a well-respected historian of early Christianity at Harvard Divinity School, Religion News Service reports.The fourth-century fragment says, “Jesus said to them, ‘My wife …,’” according to King. The rest of the sentence is cut off. The fragment also says “she will be able to be my disciple,” according to King. The discovery that some ancient Christians thought Jesus had a wife could shake up centuries-old Christian traditions, King suggested.But even King acknowledged that questions remain about the receipt-sized scrap, which contains just 33 words and incomplete sentences. Here are five of the biggest questions.1. Where did the papyrus come from?We don’t know. King says that “nothing is known about the circumstances of its discovery,” an admission that has raised red flags for other scholars.King speculates that the fragment may have been tossed in an ancient garbage heap by someone who objected to the idea of Jesus being married. Christians fiercely debated celibacy and marriage in the first centuries after Christ’s death.The papyrus now belongs to an anonymous collector who asked King to analyze it. King says three scholars have determined that the fragment is not a forgery, but that further tests will be conducted on the ink. The scholar also says that she will press the fragment’s anonymous owner to come forward. 2. Does it prove that Jesus was married?No. King says the fragment is a fourth-century translation of a second-century Greek text. It’s not quite old enough to prove that Jesus was married, King says — only that early Christians discussed it. “The earliest and most historically reliable evidence is entirely silent about Jesus’s marital status,” King says.King also acknowledged that Jesus might have been speaking figuratively when he referred to “my wife.” After all, the fragment is just 33 words long, with incomplete sentences and very little context. 3. What do other ancient texts say about Jesus being married?The Bible, of course, says nothing about Jesus marrying, though New Testament writers occasionally used the metaphor of the church and God’s people as the “bride of Christ.”Some of the Gnostic gospels — ancient texts unearthed in the 20th century that are not included in the Christian canon — suggest that Jesus had an intimate relationship with Mary Magdalene. The apocryphal Gospel of Philip, for example, says that Jesus kissed Mary, and loved her more than the apostles.But the Gnostics were often intimate in nonsexual ways. In the Gospel of Philip, for instance, Christians greet each other with kisses to convey the sense that they are a spiritual family, according to scholars. 4. Will this change contemporary Christianity?King said her discovery could cause believers to rethink their assumptions about early Christian debates over marriage, celibacy and family. Those early arguments led to contemporary practices like the Roman Catholic Church’s all-male, mostly unmarried priesthood.Perhaps King is correct — nearly everything is open for debate in Christianity these days. After all, Christians are still arguing over homosexuality, the role of women in ministry and whether priests should marry.But how many overhyped archaeological discoveries have proven less than world-changing under careful examination?Remember the Gospel of Judas? He didn’t betray Jesus! Or did he? “The Gospel of Judas was so packed with opaque Gnostic metaphor that scholars are still debating whether it portrays Judas as a hero or a villain,” said Gary Manning, an associate professor of New Testament studies at Biola University in La Mirada, California.The so-called James ossuary then? As Roland Meynet, a biblical scholar at the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome, said Wednesday, “that made a lot of noise on newspapers, but was then revealed as a fraud.”Even if the new papyrus “were proved true, it would mean that there is a new apocryphal text from that time, as there are many,” Meynet said. “It won’t reopen the debate and, anyway, we must wait for verification and be very cautious until we know the origin of the fragment.” 5. How will the Vatican respond?If the Vatican’s new communications team is as good as they say it is, Rome will stay silent.The Vatican and its media-savvy friends in Opus Dei said all they needed or wanted to say about Jesus’ marital status during the whole “Da Vinci Code” saga a few years ago. They will likely let scholarly surrogates debate this one, while the hierarchy sits on the sidelines.The Vatican insists that there’s nothing new to debate about the gender and celibacy requirements for its priesthood. It’s unlikely that a business card-sized scrap of papyrus of dubious origin is going to change that.Or perhaps Pope Benedict XVI, himself a renowned scholar, will indirectly enter the fray over the fragment. He just finished his third and final installment on the historical Jesus. It will be published around Christmas, and will likely be as well received as the previous two, and sell as strongly.(Alessandro Speciale contributed to this report from Rome.) October 4, 2012 at 4:26 am Where the proverbial “rubber meets the road” is do you live out your life on the Gospels rather than on secular values? Married or not is not a key question or issue in the faith of core christianity. The Roman Catholic history had married clergy…so celibacy is an administrative tool for deployment and dedication to the task without the obligations of being a spouse and parent. If you can recruit and retain spiritual leadership it works very well as seen by their use of that discipline. The RC’s never said that there was anything fundamentally wrong with marriage and the fact that it is a sacrament is proof of that. Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC September 24, 2012 at 11:10 am I do agree that that what some people refer to “state of life” (married, single), does not affect the teaching of Jesus. I have had in my formation many teachers, great teachers, smart, committed, honest, and truthful ones. I have never asked them, and that has not been my concern if they were married or single. Also, let us remember that Jesus indeed was truly human, and his culture gives to us a lot of information about him. FS Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Joseph F Foster says: Rector Hopkinsville, KY September 30, 2012 at 12:21 am With increasingly fewer exceptions, and with those exceptions having increasing difficulty credibly defending their discrimination, most Christians don’t regard Jesus’ sex as determinative for clergy. I’m wondering how it is that people would conclude that Jesus’ marital status is rightly regarded as any more prescriptive for clergy, much less for laity. I’m wondering also why people would attach such significance to a document as though its words alone would be authoritative. Even the scriptures themselves are subject to reasoned scrutiny and translations of scripture to informed challenge; and rightly so. If one wishes to consider the issue of Jesus’ marital status, one should do so. But one would do well, I think, to avoid referring to this fragment as informative on the topic. Prof. King has moved too quickly and claimed too much. Its authenticity and the accuracy of the published translation remain suspect. Even if somehow proven at last to be a genuine fourth century Coptic text, it is purely speculative to assume that it would have an earlier corollary in the second century Church. Even granting this non-scholarly leap, student of the early Church and of the Koine texts of the New Testament are aware that a plethora of texts and fragments thereof exists that make claims equally challenging, if not more so, in comparison to one claimed for this fragment. They can make for interesting reading and provocative of fruitful thought. But when it comes to any question of clerical celibacy, there are many arguments against it, thanks be to God, that are more persuasive and far more intellectually credible than simply trying ‘to do what Jesus did’ based on the incomplete and suspect text of a small fragment of papyrus. I hope people don’t infer more about this thing than is due.

September 25, 2012 at 1:46 pm Who would possibly care what our (not so very) friends in the Roman ecclesial community think about anything? September 22, 2012 at 5:56 pm Professor Karen King’s fragment discovery of a non-canonical gospel that refers to Jesus speaking of his wife will not change the nature of Christianity and its diverse traditions. For many early Church Christians Jesus was a Jewish Rabbi and a moral reform teacher. His radical moral teachings, such as the moral and religious imperatives for unconditional love (Agape) and free forgiveness of offenses as opposed to Mose’s teaching of “Lex talionis” or “tooth for a tooth and an eye for an eye . . . hand for a hand and foot for a foot . . . .” were central to his moral and religious reformation of Judaism. These new teachings led to protest and rejection by the conservative leaders of the mainline (Jewish) religious establishment of his time. His private personal life as a Jewish man of his time seems to have been culturally acceptable and traditional enough not cause any questions or moral or religious concern. It was traditional for most Jewish males to get married. This cultural practice included both Rabbis and Priests. Marriage was not considered as a source of moral pollution to exclude the married from positions of religious leadership. For instance, Moses was married and allegedly Prophet Hosea married a prostitute as a religious symbolism for God and his covenant people, who worshipped other gods! If Jesus and Mary were married, it would not suprise us. It would enhance his stature as a man of his time and and his teachings on morality would be taken more seriously because they would also be rooted in his own experience. He elevated the status of women and children. Prophets Moses and Muhammad were married and their married experiences enhanced their ministry. It would be the same with Jesus and his followers. A married priesthood would also be the model for Christianity as opposed to a forced celibate one, which has also proved to be unpractical and in some cased dysfunctional.Professor Emmanuel K. Twesigye, OWU, Delaware, OH, USA September 25, 2012 at 11:40 pm On point #2-what 2nd century Greek papyrus is being referred to? The parallels between the late Coptic version of the Gospel of Thomas and the Greek Oxyrynchus fragments are well known. This fragment does not fit into that category. A vague reference to an unsubstantiated 2nd century Greek fragment seems more an attempt validate this Coptic text’s antiquity, than a clear statement of fact. Not every 4th century Coptic fragment of uncertain origin has an earlier Greek original. Jim Stockton says: Youth Minister Lorton, VA Fr. Charles W. V.

Fabio Sotelo says: AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis September 22, 2012 at 7:14 pm Personally, I see little reason to be swayed one way or another by a 4th century text, especially one that’s incomplete. How do we even know it’s referring to Jesus of Nazareth? And if it is, why should I place my faith in it, rather than the church fathers of the 1st and 2nd century none of whom mentioned Jesus being married? The Episcopal Church claims to be founded on the true and accurate transmittion of the Apostolic church. I find it a little disturbing, even as a Roman Catholic, to hear an ordained cleric stating, that they have “soul-felt feeling” that Jesus was married. If you claim to follow the faith of the apostles how can you add or detract from what they said? The earliest Church fathers taught that Christ was celibate, so isn’t that what the Episcopal Church believes? Could it be that the Epsicopal Church is essentially lying when they say every Sunday that they believe in the Apostolic Church? Wouldn’t it be more honest to do what the ELCA does and just get rid of the Nicene Creed all together? I am not trying to be accusatory, rather I am encouraging an honesty. I just don’t see how you can believe in the Apostolic faith and yet deviate from such a core teaching of those apostles, or perhaps the apostles of the apostles? To an outsider it looks a lot like the clerics of the Episcopal Church pick and choose what they want to believe and don’t really care about the ancient teaching of the Church. Perhaps this allows a greater freedom of discernment in the Holy Spirit, I don’t know. It just seems silly to claim an apostolic faith and then claim something as radical as Jesus being married.

I am not a scholar. My thinking is that, not only were several of the apostles married, and Jewish culture preferred men the age of Jesus to be married, it is very possible that Jesus was married. I realize the Bible does not mention this part of the life of Jesus. I think that the New Testament writers did not believe it was an important item to mention as it was a normal part of the culture. I believe that several details were probaly omitted for the same reason. Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Robert Smith says: Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Comments (16) September 21, 2012 at 8:27 pm This whole matter has been exhaustively discussed in relation to Dan Brown’s Da Vinci Code. The very questionable research on which he bases his implication that Jesus was married to Mary Magdelene, suggests that their descendents are represented in those connected to the House of Lorraine in France. This sillines actually implies that I am a descendent of our Lord, having Lorraine antecedents. I don’t think my DNA, etc. would substantiate that–but who knows? (I really don’t think so!!) The Rev. John M. Kettlewell, Rector, St. Stephen’s Church, Schuylerville, New York. October 12, 2012 at 5:04 pm It’s an atavistic reaction, Rev. Farrell. Deep down, even the most rebellious child wants a respected and revered father’s approval, even as he outwardly scorns it (From a member of the ecclesial community to which you refer).

As I understand it, this is an administrative policy and not a theological one. Many of the secular clergy in the Byzantine and other Eastern Rite Churches in full Communion with the Bishop of Rome / Occidental Patriarch are married.

Photo: Matthew Cavanaugh/Diocese of Massachusetts[Episcopal News Service] The Absalom Jones Center for Racial Healing, an initiative of the Diocese of Atlanta that has served the past two years as a resource supporting The Episcopal Church’s racial reconciliation work, is about to expand its scope, and it will do so in the name of one of the church’s most heralded bishops.On Nov. 16, the Episcopal educational center will launch the Bishop Barbara C. Harris Justice Project to strengthen the church’s efforts to address environmental injustice, health inequities, mass incarceration, the death penalty, inhumane immigration policies and other social justice issues.Harris became the first female bishop in the Anglian Communion when she was consecrated as bishop suffragan of the Diocese of Massachusetts in 1989. Now retired at age 89, she continues to be an inspiration to Episcopalians and an example of faithful commitment to justice work, making her a natural choice for this honor, Atlanta Bishop Robert Wright said.Harris is able to “thread the needle” of being both kind and candid, Wright told Episcopal News Service, exemplifying “how to talk in terms of inequity and to talk in terms of justice and where we’ve missed building relationships of Christian affection.” She has spoken forcefully on issues of race, gender and sexual orientation while remaining personable and affable, Wright said, “and you just don’t see that every day.”Retired Bishop Suffragan Barbara Harris of the Diocese of Massachusetts.Harris is scheduled to join the ceremonies next week in Atlanta, which will include a forum discussion, a commemorative dinner and a worship service, with Wright preaching, at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church.The day will be both a celebration of Harris’ life and the starting point for the new justice project named for her.“She totally embodies what this work is about, in her own journey and the way she has been living her life in the world as an advocate for justice and her courageousness and her trailblazing spirit,” said Catherine Meeks, executive director of the Atlanta-based Absalom Jones Center, which is located across the street from Morehouse College.Meeks analogizes the Harris Justice Project as the center “spreading its wings.” So far, the center has assembled online resources, organized events, developed curricula, and led classes and a pilgrimage intended to help Episcopalians and Episcopal clergy members reckon with their own racial biases and need for healing, in the context of The Episcopal Church’s Becoming Beloved Community framework. Meeks sees the next step as connecting that spiritual journey to the outside world.“The idea is that the justice project will be kind of the outreach arm of the center. A lot of our work has been focused on healing and inner work and we will continue doing that, but we are also getting ready to expand ourselves,” Meeks said in an interview with ENS. “Now that you’ve had some opportunity to heal, what do you do next?”Much of the center’s ongoing racial healing work will build on the example of an inaugural pilgrimage that brought 20 Episcopal priests and deacons to Atlanta in May. The participants were selected from all 20 dioceses in the church’s Province IV, which encompasses all or part of nine states in the Southeast. Future pilgrimages will draw from a broader pool of participants, and the center hopes clergy members will return to their dioceses and parishes and mobilize Episcopalians to start their own journeys toward racial healing.They also will be encouraged to consider how their faith calls them to work for justice on a range of social issues, Meeks said, because she thinks “racism is at the core of all those issues.”Starting with a focus on the environment, the Harris Justice Project is developing a course curriculum that will debut in the new year. The curriculum will highlight ways that environmental risks tend to disproportionally affect minority communities and people of color, especially in less-affluent neighborhoods, Meeks said.The Episcopal Church has endorsed such work through its General Convention, which in 2015 passed a resolution opposing environmental racism, “expressed in such ways as the locating of extraction, production, and disposal industries where they disproportionately harm neighborhoods inhabited by people of color and low income communities.” That resolution echoed a similar measure passed in 2000 that raised concerns about “the practice of locating polluting industries disproportionately near neighborhoods inhabited by people of color or the poor.”Racist roots of unjust environmental policies stem from “the ways in which we’ve constructed this country on ideas of supremacy, on ideas of some people are better than others,” Meeks said.She also knows that the people who come to the center’s classes bring a wide range of attitudes about race and society. Sometimes, it’s important for diverse groups first to unite around the basic Christian principle that “everybody on the planet is an equal person,” Meeks said. “That’s a starting place.”Wright sees the Absalom Jones Center’s mission as “increasing people’s capacity to have more courageous conversations,” with the hope that they will replicate those conversations when they return to their families, communities and congregations. It helps to spotlight people like Harris who have embodied that work.“Bishop Harris has been a courageous communicator, someone who has tried to create a brave space … as bishop and even beyond that,” Wright said.– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

“My Doc” Introduces Apopka to Simple Health Care

first_img July 14, 2018 at 9:15 am Please enter your comment! The Anatomy of Fear 1 COMMENT Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 How many purchases do you make without actually knowing the cost? For most people the only purchase they ever make without first knowing the cost is medical care.  Patients routinely seek treatment and learn the cost only when the bill arrives in the mail.The days of not knowing the cost of medical services is coming to an end, at least for patients of Apopka’s newest medical practice, My Doc.My Doc recently opened in the Apopka Land Shopping Center at 721 South Orange Blossom Trail, Apopka, FL 32703.Monthly memberships cost $10 per person.  Members get several benefits:Unlimited email access to your physician for non-emergency issuesOn-site physician consultations cost $50Preferred pricing for laboratory testing and diagnostic imagingThe prices for all services are posted on the wall in the My Doc waiting room.The Docs behind My Doc are Doctors Farela and Farooq.What is “Direct Primary Care?”According to KevinMD.com, Direct Primary Care is any primary care practice model that is directly reimbursed by the patient consumer for both access and primary medical care, and which does not accept or bill third party payers (such as insurance companies).Direct primary care started in the mid 2000s, and was initially created as an insurance-free model to serve uninsured patients. In Direct Primary Care, patients are charged a monthly fee and pay pre-determined prices for medical services received.  There is typically no third-party payer involvement. Patients pay the  physician directly (hence, direct primary care).Because the insurance “middle man” is eliminated all the overhead associated with claims, coding, claim refiling, write-offs, billing staff, etc… disappears.Direct Primary Care is not “Concierge Medicine.”Concierge medicine started in the mid 1990s for wealthy individuals who were willing to “bypass” the fee-for-service system by paying a subscription to access select primary care physicians. This access consists of same-day appointments, round-the-clock cell phone coverage, email and telemedicine service, and sometimes, house calls. Although some high-end practices charge as much as $30,000 a month, most charge an average monthly fee of $200.Many concierge doctors also bill insurance or Medicare for actual medical visits, as the monthly “access fee” is only for “non-covered” services. This results in two subscriptions paid by patients — the concierge medicine fee, and the insurance premium.

She travels back-and-forth to Maryland to oversee operations at both gyms.Not too long after meeting Abby, the couple decided to bring their lives together, and in the span of one month (July of 2017), Aaron and Abby got married, moved to Eustis, and Aaron started at the police academy.Despite the whirlwind aspect of July, Aaron is not looking back.“I feel like I made the right decision,” he said smiling and looking at Abby who smiled back at him.And it’s at this point that the story needs to rewind a bit as the Apopka Police Department enters the picture.APD Deputy Chief Randy Fernandez’s daughter attends MGA Gymnastics. Abby talked to Fernandez’s wife about Aaron. She told her that he was thinking about moving to the area, and was deciding on a career in either teaching or law enforcement.Eventually, Fernandez talked to Makle and was impressed with the 25-year-old.“It’s good that we can find people like Aaron who want to be in this community, not necessarily someone who is just looking for a job,” said Fernandez. “He’s the type of officer we are looking for.”Makle enrolled at Lake Technical Center in Eustis for his Police Academy training, but Fernandez and APD Chief Michael McKinley wanted to ensure their prized recruit would graduate, and become an Officer of the APD, so they took an extra step in the process.“He paid his own way to the academy,” said McKinley. “But we hired him while he attended and it’s a good thing because at his graduation we learned that three other agencies were pursuing him.”His training at the APD is expected to end in April, at which time Officer Makle will be on the streets of Apopka, and Fernandez thinks his background as a teacher will enhance his abilities as a police officer.“It’s exciting that he taught high school before becoming a police officer,” said Fernandez.  “He can better outreach with youth and the community rather than someone who is 20-years-old and just got out of the academy. It’s a little more difficult for them to go out and handle critical situations because the public reacts differently to them. When you talk to Aaron you can see he’s got a way of being able to communicate well.”Makle looks forward to completing his training, working with the APD, and becoming a part of the Apopka community.“It’s been amazing. The people are very welcoming. It makes me feel better about working at the department. You can tell it’s close-knit family. Everybody is happy to be here, and everybody knows everybody which is exactly the type of place I want to be.” Please enter your name here LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Please enter your comment!last_img read more

Additionally, the CFPB and DOJ also alleged that the bank illegally provided unequal credit access to neighborhoods in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania.If the court approves the proposed consent order, Hudson City will pay the largest redlining settlement in history. The fines, which total $27 million, will include a $25 million in direct loan subsidies to qualified borrowers in the affected communities, $2.25 million in community programs and outreach, and a $5.5 million penalty.”It is apparent to everyone that discriminatory practices in the mortgage market undermine people’s ability to buy a home and build long-term wealth,” said Richard Cordray, CFPB director. “Without access to affordable credit to buy or improve a home, without a mortgage broker nearby, without a bank branch to offer basic services, neighborhoods deteriorate in the long shadow cast by discriminatory practices. The integrity of the consumer financial marketplace is diminished.””It is apparent to everyone that discriminatory practices in the mortgage market undermine people’s ability to buy a home and build long-term wealth.”According to the announcement, the bank was allegedly found in direct violation of the Equal Credit Opportunity Act (ECOA), which prohibits creditors from discriminating against applicants in credit transactions on the basis of characteristics such as race, color, and national origin.The DOJ also alleges that Hudson violated the Fair Housing Act.Hudson City apparently found branches and loan officers, selected mortgage brokers, and marketed products to that discouraged potential borrowers in Black and Hispanic communities.The complaint alleged that these discriminatory practices went on from at least 2009 to 2013.“Hudson City Savings Bank structured its business operations to systemically avoid providing credit services in predominantly minority neighborhoods,” said U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman of the District of New Jersey. “There is no room for such behavior in our banking system. In addition to paying $25 million for a loan subsidy program, today’s settlement agreement will require the bank to take a number of concrete steps to ensure that they improve access to responsible and affordable credit to qualified borrowers in Black and Hispanic neighborhoods.” The joint action alleges that Hudson City illegally avoided and thereby discouraged consumers in majority-Black-and-Hispanic neighborhoods from applying for credit by:Avoiding locating branches and loan officers in majority-Black-and-Hispanic communities.Avoiding using mortgage brokers in majority-Black-and-Hispanic communities.Excluding majority-Black-and-Hispanic communities from its marketing strategy.Excluding majority-Black-and-Hispanic neighborhoods from its credit in assessment areas.In addition to the aforementioned fines Hudson City must also:Offer full-service banking in majority-Black-and-Hispanic communities.Expand assessment areas to include majority-Black-and-Hispanic communities.Assess the credit needs of majority-Black-and-Hispanic communities.Develop a fair lending compliance and training plan.Click here to view the compliant filed in the U.S. District Court.Click here to view the CFPB and DOJ joint announcement.
