SGI should stop calling themselves, "Nichiren Buddhists"

Talk Wikipedia Editor and SGI member Daveler16 stated: "You belong to a religion that does not think the SG is teaching a correct teaching...." In this statement we can cull an important point. In stating the obvious that I belong to a different religion than the Soka Gakkai, he admits that the Soka Gakkai is not the religion of Nichiren Daishonin. All scholars and priests, classify the Soka Gakkai as a "new religion".  I am a member of the religion established by Nichiren himself, an old religion. Then, my assertion stands, SGI should immediately stop calling themselves, "Nichiren Buddhists". Not only are they not followers of Nichiren but they are not followers of Shakyamuni Buddha. Therefore, not only should they stop referring to themselves as Nichiren Buddhists but they should stop referring to themselves as Buddhists. They are followers of the three presidents of the Soka Gakkai and Daisaku Ikeda in particular.  They should call their "new religion" just plain Soka Gakkai or Ikedaism and refer to themselves as Ikedists or followers of Ikeda. Then and only then would they be true to themselves and others.
