City agency halts church services at public housing unit

DALLAS - A Dallas church that has held Sunday worship service at a public housing apartment complex for the elderly for 14 years has been ordered to stop.

Dallas Housing Authority president MaryAnn Russ told the Dallas Morning News that the church services violate separation of church and state and the agency's contract with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, which funds public housing programs.

But Jerry Brown, a HUD spokesman based in Washington, DC, said there may be a misunderstanding.

He said the Fair Housing Act allows religious activity in common areas of public housing as long as it does not result in unequal treatment of residents.
