A Tennessee judge has ordered the parents of a 7-month-old boy to rename their son “Martin” instead of “Messiah,” CNN affiliate WBIR reports.
“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,” Child Support Magistrate Lu Ann Ballew said.
Jaleesa Martin, the child’s mother, told WBIR that she intends to appeal the decision.
