I have followed recent events concerning the names given to children by parents and the reaction of media and public organizations who differ with the choices legally made by the parents. Specifically the naming of a child “Adolph Hitter”.
I grew up during World War Two and despised Adolph Hitler and all he represented. Friends and family were killed and maimed in that war. The mass murders, torture, destruction of billions of dollars worth of personal and public property and upheaval of people all over the world was and is rightly charged to Adolph Hitler and his henchmen.
Now a citizen has decided to name his offspring a name that is not necessarily one I or you would choose. However, as difficult as it is for me to accept naming a child “Adolph Hitler” or anything else as offensive, it is none of my business or that of anyone else. Supposed DYFS does not like the name you gave your child? You may be next.
In this case two organizations that believe they have the right to interfere in anything that they choose have entered the case. ACLU and DYFS to some are more offensive names than Adolph Hitler. DYFS challenged the rights of the parent in this case and the courts in their “wisdom” ruled that naming a child “Adolph Hitler” was cause for a full-blown inquisition. The result of this is the removal of the child in question and two other children whose names the court and DYFS did not like.
The ACLU, if it was what the original name implies, The American Civil Liberties Union”, would be standing along side of the parents in the case. Whether a parent is a good or bad parent was not the issue in the original case.
Citizens who believe that the Constitution protects their right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness should be outraged at this breach of those rights. Judges who rule in this way, the ACLU and DYFS have trampled the Constitution rights of the parents in this case. Stand up now or look forward to more actions representing those of Adolph Hitler.
