NEWPORT, TN — The government has the power to rename your children for you.  That’s what one family found out recently in Tennessee.

Child Support Magistrate Lu Ann Ballew was overseeing a child support hearing, in which the parents were disputing what the child’s last name should be.  However, the judge used the opportunity to take away the child’s first name.

Judge Ballew ordered that Jaleesa Martin change her 7-month-old son’s name from “Messiah DeShawn Martin” to “Martin DeShawn McCullough.”

The judge said that she “thought out into the future” and renamed the boy because “it could put him at odds with a lot of people.”

“I was shocked. I never intended on naming my son Messiah because it means God and I didn’t think a judge could make me change my baby’s name because of her religious beliefs,” Jaleesa Martin said, according to WBIR.

Regardless of the judge’s reasoning, a free society would not tolerate the government dictating what is an acceptable name for a child.

The mother is appealing the decision and wishes to give her chosen first name back to her baby boy.

  1. Yes, if the government could overrule every stupid thing that Americans do, then they would have to overrule themselves most of the time.
