I have researched the word messiah and can not find any designation of such as holy or exclusive to Jesus (whose real name would translate as Joshua in English). When religious zealots are elevated to political or judicial positions it might be wise to remind them of our Constitution's insistence in the separation of church and state. Judge Lu Ann Ballew should read her history and she may be surprised that the noun messiah has been given to more than one baby in this decade nor in the last 2013 years. Are you to make all Latin men named Jesus and women named Maria to change their names? Or Christian women and girls named Mary? One more shame attributable to an America going mad.
