Faith a sore spot at the Olympics?
I remember archery lessons in my freshman PE class in high school.
I really recall how bad I was at it and how grateful I was that I never had to do it again.
The sport is on my mind today after I read a recent story in the New York Times about U.S. Olympic archery coach Kisik Lee (pictured at right) stirring the waters, so to speak, at the games in Beijing.
It seems that Lee is a Christian and has baptized several people, including several of his archers, prior to the games in Beijing.
According to the Times, the United States Olympics Committee is concerned that Lee may have imposed his faith values on the U.S. archers who competed in Beijing. At least one archer’s parent, according to the story, was not happy with Lee on this issue, but was afraid that her child might draw some sort of retaliation if she spoke out.
