Where's Messiah Now?

Judge's ruling on toddler's name draws worldwide attention.
(WBIR)  Is the word Messiah a name or a title?

That question in a Tennessee courtroom is gaining worldwide attention.

The parents of a young boy named Messiah were in a child support hearing in Cocke County Chancery Court when child support Magistrate Lu Ann Ballew said the boy's name should be changed to "Martin DeShawn McCullough." 

Martin is the mother's last name; McCullough is the surname of the father.

Ballew said it was best for the child to not have that biblical name, living in an area with a large Christian population.
