Yup! And a clever way to say it without embarrassing him too much.
In other news, back to work and I came home to gather boxes...my dr's office called and wants me to come in to talk about my CT. They found a nodule. I'm so scared and I can't concentrate at work right now....if it's fine, say so on the phone!
My niece JUST went through this. It was nothing. Yours is nothing....thinking positive thoughts.

Those parents seem not to have their feet firmly planted on the ground. Calling your kid "Messiah". BUT, I agree that the judge will be overturned. It's the parents' call what to name their child. The judge overstepped.
Overturned?...By what?....Do they strike you as a couple, that would take anything to a higher court?

That's nice, but the problem is in her lungs.

But I'm sure her breasts appreciate the good vibes anyway.

Oh, sorry. Can't keep up with all of her varying medical conditions. Thanks for keeping me "abreast" of the situation!

The judge can't do that. It's unconstitutional. If they appeal to a higher court, it will be overturned. Arbitrarily changing a person's name. Replacing it with one of your own (the judge's) choosing? WTH? Oh also the judge mentioning jesus christ...yeah, not.

Red,
He told me in passing conversation when we were talking about DUI's that part of the reason they charge so much money was to punish people.
Those were his words, not mine. I am just relaying what he said to me twenty-something years ago.
I thought is was a very profound statement. One which I have always remembered.

Sounds like a pompous egomaniac.
Did he charge less if he believed the person was innocent, or did he only defend guilty people?

Maybe 20-something years ago, the state's penalties weren't as bad as they are now for DUIs.

Do you think, they will appeal to a higher court?...I'd wager, they cannot spell, unconstitutional?.....

Its the 4th fastest growing name of last year the report said. And as much as it seems silly, people will get used to it. People think Apple and North are odd names(and they are), but no one gives a second thought to Orel(Hershiser), Kobe(steak Bryant)?

Here's one that never caught on. Anyone remember the basketball player, God Shammgod?

And where was the ACLU when the couple who named their kid Hitler was taken away? Along with their two or three other kids who were named after prominent historical Nazis?

A judge renames a poor kid named "Messiah" and all of a sudden the ACLU jumps in and people are calling for an appeal. Lose custody of your children for naming them after a Nazi and no one bats an eye.

I'm not saying I agree with the judge's decision, but I applaud her bravery. More judges and politicians should stand up and defend against the much persecuted and hated Christians in this country.

So, what do you guys think of the rodeo clown with the obamma face?

Personally I think its an overreaction, I remember seeing nixon masks (I am not a crook) and bush Jr masks, and nothing was ever said about it.

I think its the messiah complex that people have for that dude. So glad he cant be reelected. Unless of course he makes himself king.

Thanks, all.
So the CT results said the lung nodule was a granuloma and stable and nothing to fear. Doc said usually from TB exposure--what the what??

BUT--the CT caught my liver and I have a suspicious lesion. Wha!! My bloodwork is normal and I'm asymptomatic, but still--it was hard to fight those tears back. I was a wreck earlier; I just got stupid emotional.

I'm getting an abdomenal ultrasound on Friday and we go from there. I had one last year with gastric issues and it was normal. I hope this is nothing. There is a good chance, but you never know, and when they use the word "suspicious" and "undetermined" it doesn't make you feel good.:/
