But the FHA is not a private bank. It's a Federal Agency. If they are 
discriminating it should be on the basis of written and transparent 
rules/standards. Not hidden and not in writing. And it should be fairly 
exercised across all housing groups. 

The rules/standard should also be fairly determined based on factual evidence. 
As we all know, cohousing is probably the lowest insurance risk of any class of 
housing for which a bank would be applying for insurance.
