Parents can name their baby "Messiah" after all, Tenn. judge rules
http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-201_162-...n-judge-rules/

IMHO, when a judge makes a decision that so clearly violates the constitution there should be consequences.

That's nice but this topic is not about your country. Did you go through Cricket's opening post and some of the replies yet?

What's your opinion on this?

There should probably also be consequences for the person who brought this before the court in the first place.

Who would that be? I'm too lazy to investigate it myself.

Way back there in post one the parents brought the action because they could not agree on the child's last name. Obviously a real class act going on there.

ScriptMan beat me to it.
But seriously, John, trolling in your old forum? That's sad.
Surely you could make better use of your time?

The parents (unmarried) were unable to agree on the last name of the child.

Quote:
A judge in Tennessee changed a 7-month-old boy's name to Martin from Messiah, saying the religious name was earned by one person and "that one person is Jesus Christ."

Child Support Magistrate Lu Ann Ballew ordered the name change last week, according to WBIR-TV. The boy's parents were in court because they could not agree on the child's last name, but when the judge heard the boy's first name, she ordered it changed, too.

I must misunderstand the meaning of the word trolling. Care to enlighten me?

First, what does it say about the expected quality of life for a child who's parent (married or not) resort to going to court over a name because they are not mature enough to be able to compromise or communicate effectively. After all, there is such a thing as a legal name change if it is decided to do that at any time later in life.

Not to mention how horrid and scary is it that a court not only heard this case but ruled that someone could not name their child a particular name?? What type of precedent does this set and what consequences would be suffered by others in the future?

I don't think that the judge had any place to change the boy's first name. And it's a shame that a naming issue ended up in court to begin with.

I'm thinking she was tired of the parents, feeling a little ornery and wanted to make life easier for little Martin/Messiah who is starting life on an uphill slope as it is.

Problem is, she clearly forgot she's a judge and I think she made a pretty poor decision.

Frankly, if you are going after a name like Messiah you have to go after all the other names like.... well, I was going to list my least favorite girlie-boy and stripper-girl names for children but since one of you might have named your child one of them, I won't <laughing>.

I do know a seminary couple who names their boy @zariah. They call him Azzie for short. (It's one of Meshach, Radshack and Abendego's pre-slavery names... please don't correct my spelling.)

Poor Azzie. Or was that Assie?

<sigh>

If I can keep my tongue on this issue, that judge should take her ruling back.

<I hope those parents aren't on this forum... or see this post when they google their son's name... oh... I think I'll go add a symbol to keep that from happening since I'm using my real name here...>
