    So far as I can tell here, these two parents could not decide what last name to give the child, so they went to court over it.

    That right there is insanity.

    Then the judge decides to change the first name too, since apparently "the bible says this important son-of-god guy has first dibs on that" counts as a valid legal decision basis.

    Twilight zone.

    WTF is this ****.

    But, seriously, an idiotic judge who orders a name change because only Jesus Christ is allowed that title is the reason that there is separation of church and state.

    I have nothing new to add to this thread, but want to go on record agreeing with the majority. The judge overstepped her boundaries, and if the parents appeal, I have no doubt the judge's name change will be overruled.

    Agreed. I don't see this surviving an appeal.

    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Which is wrong, completely and totally wrong... a judge rules based on her RELIGION, about something that was not part of the case, and they are screwed? Now how it's supposed to work in a free society.

    AND local citizens' tax dollars be used to correct the dumbassery of an arrogant judge who doesn't know her hole from an ass in the ground.
