IMPORTING THE SUPERIOR CULTURE:

Hispanic Churches Add English Services (ERIC GORSKI, 8/23/07, AP)

While churches from every imaginable tradition have been adding Spanish services to meet the needs of new immigrants, an increasing number of Hispanic ethnic congregations are going the other way—starting English services.

It's an effort to meet the demands of second- and third-generation Hispanics, keep families together and reach non-Latinos.

Many Korean congregations have done the same thing, especially those that started meeting at mainline Presbyterian churches who no longer believe. Once the Koreans built their own churches, they invited the Americans to come and really hear the Gospel.

The bigoted, elitist, atheist Episcopalians have a very big lesson to learn here, but they are too busy denigrating the Africans to do it.
