Stop calling ISIS the Islamic State.
You guys will go upon lengths and jump hoops to deny that the KKK are a Christian influenced group but won’t blink to say Muslim and terrorist in the same sentence.
The language you use matters.
Except for the fact that they literally call themselves the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant/Syria (ISIL/ISIS) and are a Sunni Jihadist terrorist group. Yes, people will do everything in their power to deny that any terrorist is Christian, even when groups like God’s Army, Concerned Christians, and Christian Identity, literally identify themselves as Christian, and it needs to stop, but that doesn’t stop the fact that the horrible group ISIS/ISIL who, also, literally identifies themselves as Islamic, is Muslim.
As someone who is fascinated with Middle Eastern and Arabic culture, someday hopes to work in that area of the world, and whose major is literally dedicated to this culture, I think it’s horrible that people see Islamic State and automatically think that all Muslims are evil and terrible. However, that still doesn’t stop ISIS from being Muslim, it just means that we need to work on changing social and media perceptive to view it as they view groups like the KKK and the West Burrow Baptist Church, to disassociate the religion with the terror being committed.
