    I love all the things about this situation that don't make sense.
    It's nonsense vs nonsense.
    Anyone with common sense shouldn't give their kid an extravagant title like that. These parents are either full of themselves, extremely retarded, or wish a curse upon their kid for his entire childhood.
    On the other hand, there is a law against naming one's child messiah? That doesn't make any sense. Messiah isn't even a name, it's more like a common noun, a description, like calling someone a King or an asshole. It just means a liberator or savior of some kind. And where do we draw the line? Would it be illegal to name your kid Holy Ghost? Yahweh? There's a lot of people out there with the name Jesus. What about Satan? All fucked up things to name your kid, but to impose that as a law doesn't make any sense.

    I thought niggers just named their kids stuff that sounds like prescription sleep medication or Japanese foreign cars, like

    • Lunesta
    • Ambien
    • Rozarem
    • Sonata (car and sleep aid......double!)
    • Miata
    • Elantra
    • Mazda
    • Corolla
    • Sienna
    • Sentra
    • Murano

    All of these sound like black names. Their formula is simple: Don't use anything you've heard a lot. Saints names are right out. End with "ah" if you can. Use "z" when possible. Always try to have two consecutive vowels and consonants just to fuck with people. Make sure your kid will be the only one in the class with it and the teacher will definitely mispronounce it.

    You have now reclaimed your African pride. Your child is now free from expectations to read at an 8th grade level by high school graduation, getting a job, or anything else.

    The judge should have pointed out this is forcing many groups to refer to this baby as "Messiah" and thus is infringing on the rights of others. Worked for those parents who tried to troll atheists by naming their baby "ChristisKing"

    I know a black boy named "Boy"

    i knew a few black men with with the middle name "semaj" which is just "james" spelled backwards. they sometimes take normal names and just toss a few extra consonants in it or spell it backwards. it's like remixing names instead of rap music

    Yeah, my brother is an ed major and he showed me that.



    My mom had a Shithead in class. Then again, I shouldn't complain Sibhion is complicated as shit and it's white as fuck, if you count Irish as white.

    Looking at it, it looks like it should be pronounced like the sex toy. Apparently it is pronounced closer to Shevon.

    The judge dun goofed.
    His ruling violates the U.S. Constitution, Article 1, Section 9, Clause 8.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Title_of_Nobility_Clause

    religion aside,
    the U.S. Government and all parts thereof are prohibited from recognizing foreign titles AND from granting titles and honors itself. If "Messiah" is in fact a foreign title, as the judge claims, he's forbidden to give it any official recognition (like, prohibiting someone from naming their shitspawn after it). If "Messiah" isn't a foreign title but a title granted by Americans, then its doubly illegal, because neither the judge nor any american entities are empowered to create such a title. And he's not only not allowed to create them, but not allowed to recognize them.

    Even Scalia would give this one the finger
