The Nobles of Isis Shrine Temple in Salina, Kansas are having an unfortunate identity problem, thanks to current events.
From the KWCH-TV website yesterday:
One word is raising many questions.
"We kept thinking it would go away, calm down, and basically as of right now, it's been worse."
John Gilpin is a part of Isis Shriners, a non-profit that helps children in need with medical expenses, about 1,500 members meet at their temple in Salina.
"We talk about it for a while, go off on something else, and try to forget it, but it keeps coming back."
He says the word Isis comes from an Egyptian Greek goddess, not to be confused with the terrorist group that is also known as ISIS.
"All we can do it explain it to them and tell them what we are doing."The charity has had the name since 1927.
"We are the oldest corporation in the state of Kansas, but we would hate to lose that."
Apparently, the public is having a tough time differentiating between radical Islamic terrorists and portly, middle-aged, white gentlemen wearing fezzes and driving smallish go-karts in local parades.
