He’s not the Messiah!

It’s strange how little things can change your outlook on a subject.

I have been totally against children being given silly names by parents. (I refrain from using ‘kooky/unusual/quirky’ instead of ‘silly’ as some people feel these are always good words) In fact, I’m opposed to the naming of children by un-educated parents.

But today I see a news story from that country of democracy America, where a judge hasn’t allowed a couple to name their third kid ‘Messiah’. On the grounds that “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..” See here US Judge changes baby’s name from Messiah to Martin

Now I’m all for silly names!

I guess this arranges these issues on my hierarchy level thus:
Silly religiousity >More annoying than> Silly child-naming.
