Its also "shocking" that the politician who wants to ban muslims from the US also insists on using the phrase.

In May 2014, the United States Department of State announced its decision to use "Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant" (ISIL) as the group's primary name.[66] It kept to this decision when in late June 2014 the group renamed itself ad-Dawlah al-Islāmiyah (lit. Islamic State or IS), thereby declaring itself a worldwide caliphate.[37] The name "Islamic State" and the group's claim to be a caliphate have been widely rejected, with the UN, various governments, and mainstream Muslim groups refusing to use the new name.[71][72][73][74][75][76][77][78]

So ... by refusing to call them what they want to be called the Pres is kowtowing.

Something really irritates me that they keep using the term ISIL. There is some bull [expletive] going on with that. Can't put my finger on it.

Gotta love the "minds" that come up with logic like that.

I'm sure that mankind would be better off without religion. The god's that have been invented have wreaked havoc on the world. Maybe we would fight over something else, probably would I suppose. But I can't help but wonder if we might just fight less if human beings weren't so damn superstitious.
