That was about to be my exact comment! Lol
My child has a Biblical name... It's separation of Church and State... What if this woman has no beliefs? Some people have NEVER heard of the story in the Bible that contains my son's name... Should I have to change his?!? Too many people trying to control the world... The only part of this story that could make it the least bit understandable would be if the Dad wanted the name Martin and took the mother to court over the name... And that's still a little far-fetched to me.

Well, there is a Big difference! Jesus was a ‘given’ name, not unlike Bob, David or Joe. Christ however is a reference to divinity; ‘Christ’ in a truer translation is “Messiah”, or Savior.

A messiah is a saviour or liberator of a group of people. His name isn't Jesus Christ. The fkn judge can't change his name. She probably just liked how it sounds. It's not like she named him god or Christ.

... And even if she did name him Jesus Christ... That's her deal, not ours. We don't answer for her, right?...

Stupid woman. Think of the grief her child will suffer for it not to mention being black on top of all that. That's just asking for it.

Well I will have to disagree with you. People won't give him crap for his name. It's not that big of a deal. And it sounds like a black name. He will be fine. Ignorance makes this a big deal.

Stupid judge! How dare she force this woman to legally change her child's name just because of HER religious beliefs. She should be thrown off the bench! Once again Tennessee is the laughing stock of the country with this idiocy!!

Well, depends on the circumstance. But from what you have read, you couldn't base how smart I am from my opinion. Can you?

The judge prolly saved this kid from years of torment. Who the hell would wanna be named that? Forget the fact that Messiah is a retarded name for us mere mortals but Messy would be a sh!tty nickname.

Torment over a name like messiah? Even if it came to that he could go by his middle name! And a being a messiah doesn't make you immortal lololol. Jesus got murdered didn't he? You think he was the only messiah? Do you know what messiah means? It has and forever will be used as a name.
