There is a NJ couple who have lost custody of their children.
They say that they lost custody because of the names they chose.
Not true: They lost custody because of abuse and neglect.
BUT …. Had it just been the names ….
… had it not been their ‘religious’ belief in white supremacy, had it not been their denial that the holocaust ever happened or that slavery was not a bad gig for the slaves….
Had it just been that they named their children … Adolf Hitler, JoyceLynn Aryan Nation, and Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie… (Feminized version of Heinrich Himmler)
It is not illegal to be part of the Klan, any more then it is illegal for me to be a Jew. Are they practicing their religion?
Kids are named Mary, and I have seen various forms of Jesus, Abraham, Sarah, and Isaac …. A lot of bible names out there … names of leaders we admire.
Can names be bad enough that children are removed for receiving them? Can such names be considered abusive to give a child?
