Why Not Just Call Him Fred?

A judge in Tennessee has changed a baby’s name from “Messiah” to “Martin,” arguing that only one person – Jesus Christ – is entitled to go by the name “Messiah.”

“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,” the judge said, according to the Christian Science Monitor.

It’s a good thing this particular judge works in Tennessee and not in, say, New York City or southern California or Miami.  Imagine what she might do with all of those Hispanic boys christened “Jesus.”
