I am a student studying Korean at Wonkwang University in Iksan Korea, a Won Buddhist institution. I was recently asked to edit (by edit, I mean just checking grammar and spelling, format, and offering general criticisms) an issue of a new Won Buddhist magazine in English by a professor. I agreed, but when I began editing, I realized that it was a kind of missionary enterprise. Though I said I would be willing to help with articles that are academic in nature, focus on Christianity, or are about religious dialogue, as a Catholic, I felt I shouldn’t help edit a magazine which I believed to be meant for missionary efforts.
However, I’m wondering if I did the right thing. I was able to challenge some misunderstandings of Christianity in the magazine, and so a Christian editor could be a good thing. Should I continue to refuse to do any more editings of this magazine?
Secondly, should I just outright refuse to work on the magazine at all, or could I edit articles in that magazine which aren’t directly related to conversion?
Thanks for any help!
