I've never been religious and all the crap in the world with ISIS etc puts further doubt on religion and a higher being.
Is this affecting peoples faith in a god?
If there is a god, why is he letting this barinless vermin ruin his world?

Where I come from there are 'protestant' terrorists like the UVF, UDA, and a number of other smaller organizations; and 'catholic' terrorists like the IRAs (plural!). In reality, the motivations for the conflict are not religious at all, and the sectarian divide serves to obscure a material one; the divide between the colonized Irish and the settling British.
ISIS do not take Islam more seriously than ulster's Orange Order take Christianity - a number of them are extremely serious preachers who go out to the people and speak of the Lord, even in the pouring rain or hail. However, the glorious reformation isn't what inspires these moving ascetics to take up arms and murder innocent people. I imagine it is much the same with ISIS.1
