Yesterday on Professor Rah’s blog, I made some insensitive comments about Asian culture cncerning the debate of Mike Foster and Jud Wilhite’s Deadly Viper Character Assassins book and ministry. Nothing that was intentional, but it offended none the less. And as I read in Shaun King’s Blog and Eugene Cho’s blog this morning, if you offend someone , you say sorry with no excuses and change your way. So I am here to say I apologize for my remarks. I did not want to hurt the feelings of Asian Americans or disgrace their culture in any way. I had no intention to hurt but if it was done, please accept my apology and forgive me.
But what I have taken from all of this is that I have some things that need to change about my thinkings on other cultures. I don’t know what it is like to be made fun of, insulted, or harmed for my ethnicity or heritage. So read this, and HEAR ME LOUD..I am sorry and I hope that we can keep this dialogue going that will bring healing , restoration, and reconciliation.
(BTW….the Chinese characters used above were what I found on ask.com. I know that not all Asian Americans are Chinese but this is my attempt to apologize. It is the only resource that i have. It says that it means, I am sorry. If it does not then I am still sorry.)
