It singles out a group of people. It ignores other ethnic groups: like the proud Poles and Eye-talians who helped make Notre Dame great. I say we should rename the mascot "Green." The University of Notre Dame Green.
If you must include a religious element to the mascot. Then we should be called the University of Notre Dame Muslims. Islam is a religion of peace. And it won't offend anyone. If anyone is offended, then they are clearly bigots. And who cares what they think.
