    Maybe, but if he was Latino his name might be 'Jesus'. Do we want a judge to say it can't be?

    Come on. You don't really mean that do you? Or are you just trying to pull our peter, Peter?

    Unless your name is Ziggy, Dweezel or Moon Unit you don't have a case.
    Quite right, the government should have the duty and the right to protect it from parents who do not have the decency to give the child a name that does not make it bullied and ridiculed.

    Messiah is not an suitable name for a child.

    Everyone in the case is insane and retarded.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    A solution everyone could agree to: appellate court swoops in and changes this judge's name to Messiah.

    I thought, at first, that the impasse over naming the kid motivated this decision, but like you, I was wrong. The judge is just being an activist idiot.

    You have a very strange idea of what the role of government is.
