Shaking My Head

This story made the news last month.  A judge ruled that a couple couldn’t name their baby “Messiah.”  She made them change it, even though the case she was working on pertained to the baby’s last name, not the first.
I’d like to point out that there are a number of names that also mean Messiah or “Anointed”.  A quick Google search brought up: Christian (and it’s million variations), Emmanuel, Shiloh, and Seth.
I am constantly amused/bewildered/outraged  by Tennessee and wonder what those who don’t live here must think of the people and politics.  Sometimes it is baffling.
