Judge Orders Baby’s Name To Be Changed, Claims Only One Person Should Be Named ‘Messiah’ [VIDEO]
Tennessee Judge Lu Ann Ballew says only one person in history deserves the name "Messiah", and ordered Jaleesa Martin to change her son's name. Then Ms. Martin did change it on judges orders to Martin instead, making his name Martin Martin.
According to Newser the judge said "The word Messiah is a title, and it's a title that has only been earned by one person, and that one person is Jesus Christ," in her ruling.
The judge added that the decision is for little Messiah's own good, as his name "could put him at odds with a lot of people," particularly in the heavily Christian county where he lives.
Jaleesa Martin is appealing the decision. Good for her.
