Re: “Young, Asian American, and Christian

Asian culture is very compatible with the ideals of Christianity. In the San Francisco Bay Area the Asian Community has effectively insulated it's cultural ideals from regional cultural ideals, which include anti-Christian sentiments.
People are going to find things they like and dislike where ever they attend church.
Many have zealots that violate peoples boundaries, but also have some people that are the most loving people you've ever met and would give you the shirts off their back.
They are not all patriarchal in an unhealthy way. For example, Regeneration Church is not a very male friendly church, but the good side, its pastor is one of the most effective and touching speakers in conveying a message that makes sense and applies to life in a practical way. You know this guy loves people.
I hope that when people seek to label or categorize Christians, know that they are very imperfect, but fundamentally trying to follow something that is entirely about love.
