korean church alleges bias in property sale

This is news out of the Chicago suburbs... A Korean American congregation is suing a Prospect Heights church for not selling its property to the highest bidder, alleging racial discrimination: Suit claims bias in church sale. Their suit alleges that the Antioch Korean Convenant Church offered $1 million for the Prospect Heights Community Church property, but another church—the predominantly white Cornerstone Bible Church—offered half that much, and that bid was accepted. The suit also alleges that at a meeting of the Prospect Heights church members, disparaging remarks about Koreans were made, which prompted the decision to sell to the other group. If that's proven in court, the Prospect Heights church would be in violation of the Illinois Human Rights Act, which forbids the denial of a property sale based upon race. That's racist! My friends, there's a lesson here. Do not get in the way of Koreans wanting to get their church on.
