The New York Times has found an immigrant it can't stand. He's the United States Olympic Archery coach, originally from Korea. What could possibly be wornt with an immigrant that New York Times could not like him? Could he be HIV-positive, sexually perverted, a criminal, an illegal alien, or Communist? No, they're fine with all that—Kisik Lee is a Christian.[U.S. Archery Coach Fastens Religion to His Sport| For Coach, God and Archery Are a Package Deal, By Katie Thomas, August 19, 2008 ] He's been known to evangelize, and some of the archers have found Jesus and been baptized. The New York Times can't stand it. I think they want him to lose his job.

Never mind the archer—tell me why the University of Central Florida has an Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sport.
