Comments on: Tennessee judge cited for bias for ordering baby’s name changed from Messiah Religion, faith and ethics Sat, 23 Apr 2016 23:25:07 +0000 hourly 1 By: Spacehistorian Tue, 29 Oct 2013 17:26:20 +0000 This is why we should appreciate the wisdom of the Founding Fathers who created our secular Constitutional Republic. Religion is a private matter and is not an area where the government should get involved. Judge Ballew committed a blatant breach of judicial ethics by injecting her personal religious belief into her ruling over this child’s name. I have worked in Cocke County and it is a rural, very conservative and religious area of East Tennessee. The Constitution is the only protection the minority in our country has against the tyranny of the majority.
