Judge who vetoed Messiah name change fired


A Tennessee judge who ordered a baby's name changed from Messiah to Martin, saying the former was reserved for Jesus Christ, has been fired, court officials said on Tuesday.Child Support Magistrate Lu Ann Ballew of Cocke County in eastern Tennessee last August ordered a boy's first name changed over the objections of his parents when they appeared before her seeking to settle other issues. O. Duane Slone, presiding judge of the state's fourth judicial district, terminated Ballew's appointment, effective last Friday, according to court documents.


When will these people learn your religion belongs in your home and your church not in the courtroom. Good job by Slone by firing her she should have lost her job before now seeing how she had let her religious bias rule in other cases. Hopefully the people will get a Judge that will rule by law not religion.

Messiah ... nothing wrong with that.
I've seen people with names like Jesus and Emanuel ... so why not Messiah?
Stupid judge.

Or Hopefully the people will get a judge that will rule by law and not by just being plain stupid.
But good luck with that.

Looks like ex-Magistrate Lu Ann Ballew got ex-communicated !!

Now she will seek an exorcist.

Good thing O. Duane Slone knows the meaning of ex-cathedra.

It is all about the mentality of those that reside in the bible belt. They continuously defy Supreme Court precedent. It has been stated in many SC decisions that the separation of Church and State is enshrined in the Constitution. Just ignorant bat crazy wingers.

Judges have way too much power in this country and it often goes to their heads, Magistrates are much worse generally. Anytime I've had to stand in front of a magistrate it's like the twilight zone. The will write whatever they want in a "finding of facts". I mean to the point where things are just made up,things are left out, and things distorted beyond recognizable truth. Every thing they do should be filmed, monitored,and public. With great power comes... well at least some sort of responsibility, you'd think.

If so then this should turn into a 50 page debate over whether what this judge did was right or wrong. I look forward to it. Come on all you nutcase Bible thumpers, let em have it!

Its luck that they used the name Messiah...

Could you imagine if they were of Hispanic background and named their child jesús?

Good job by the person who terminated her appointment.

Why? Does it say somewhere in the bible that a child may not be named Messiah?

Rapper T.I. has a son named Messiah, middle name Ya' Majesty last name Harris. Lolz...
