speaking as an Irishman, American evangelicals are just not good at cross-cultural "humour". i've experienced it first hand. it sucks! America is no longer "land of the free", if it ever was. it also no longer has a one-time dominant-role in the future of Christianity, thank God! believe it or not, God is a bit bigger than the USA :)

I am an American Chinese that had been in the US since the 1960s. When I read the respond of Pastor Warren, asking everyone to have a sense of humor, I wonder what Pastor Warren found so humorous about that picture?

If we read the history of mission in China, we found many example of missionaries not understanding the culture of China. Their intention was good, but they did not receive much blessing from God toward their ministry. I hope we will not make that mistake again.
