Christianity Today has an article about a Korean-American church suing a mostly White-American church for racism.
It is not clear what happened. The Korean-American church offered $1 million to buy a church which ended up selling to another church for $500,000. The Korean-American church claims they negotiated for over three months but the selling church claims no legitimate offer was made.
It may have been an issue of language but I am sad to say it probably was racism. Some white suburbs don’t like the idea of a large Korean-American church in their community, with all the crazy early morning prayers, evening revivals, and kimchee feasts. The courts will have the final say.
