Hitler Cake

State child welfare officials in New Jersey aren't commenting on the case involving three siblings whose names have Nazi connotations, and who have now been removed from their home and placed in state custody.

But they do say that the state wouldn't remove children from their home simply because of their names.

The children had attracted attention last month after a supermarket bakery refused to put the name of the oldest child -- a 3-year-old named Adolf Hitler Campbell -- on a birthday cake.

The other two are girls, one of whom has the middle names "Aryan Nation." Police say state workers didn't tell them why the children were taken.

A family court hearing in the case is scheduled for tomorrow.

    I was not pointing fingers. My post should not offend anyone unless they are guilty of instilling intolerance in their children. Phineas preisthood, National Alliance, American Nazi Party all of these, and yes there are many more, are full of members who claim Christianity. I am not one who can say whether or not they are Christian. Sure a Christian should not hate but they also should not envy. Being jealous of something does not mean you are no longer a Christian. If I'm not mistaken the only one who can truly know who is and who is not a true Christian is God.

    People believe me, there is more to this story. Legally, the system can not remove these children from the home for no apparent reason. On the other note, if these parents liked the names, why didn't they change their own names? Instead of putting these innocent children through lifelong mess because of the names their parents gave them. It amazes me how parents don't give thought about what they do to their children or children-children.

    First of all, no part of a hate group is Christian, period. You can call yourselves 'Christian' if you want but if you HATE any person(s) for any reason, you are not Christian. Secondly, I do not tell my chrildren to, nor do I, hate anyone. I do tell them that homosexuality, racism and other sinful acts are wrong. However, there must be something else afoot here to have them taken away. I would hope it was not just due to their names.

    I was unaware until just recently how many white supremecy groups are still in this country. If you just search the internet you will find so many hateful anti-jew, anti-gay, anti-anything but white conservative Christian websites. But parents can teach their children whatever they wish. Most believe it is wrong now to raise your child with racist beliefs, but it is still okay to hate gays. You shouldn't raise your sons to believe women are property, yet teach them to hate Muslims, atheists, Wiccans and Pagans. I do feel for these kids. They will suffer greatly from being ripped away from their mother or they will suffer greatly from being raised with these beleifs. If they don't move to another country or change their names they will never get into a good school, get a nice job, or be respected in general. Many believe this is the land of opportunity but many never have a chance. I obviously don't know the real reason these children were removed but regardless this is a sad situation.

    Yes you can name your child what you want but why pick Adolf Hitler and Aryan Nation unless you espouse the ideals of this man and this group.If that is the case then the chances are that these kids will be raised in an environment filled with hate.They need to be taken away and protected from a future like that.

    These parents are not the "sharpest knife in the drawer", but they do have the right to name their children as they wish. Unless of course there is a PC bragaid that wishes the government to print a list of "proper" PC names.

    Del from Kinston. I agree with you great comment. Sorry kids you can not choose your parents when born. But God willing you will have a better start in life now. New Jersey please do these kids right.

    Why would anyone want to name their child Adolf Hitler unless they agreed with what he did.Hitler and his cronies were monsters,monsters that caused many Americans to lose their lives.I am all for free speech but this is not about free speech this is about hate and pure evil.The kids are safer out of the home.
