(Newser) – Heath Campbell—the guy who thought it was a good idea to go to court in a Nazi uniform after giving all his kids Nazi-inspired names—has been denied custody of his son, Heinrich Hons, 2, NBC Philadelphia reports. The boy was removed from his parents' care on allegations of abuse; older siblings Adolf Hitler, JoyceLynn Aryan Nation, and Honzlynn Jeannie were already in foster care for the same reason. Campbell maintains he never abused his kids and is being wrongly targeted because of the unusual names. He may even get a chance to argue that point—perhaps in his favorite Nazi suit—as he plans to appeal the judge's decision.

I don't think people will be loosing any sleep worrying about the Nazis taking over anything other than a smelly out house with loonies like this representing their phylosophy of hate and discrimination.

Can you imagine the problems the boy he named "Adolf Hitler" will have at school and elsewhere? What kind of total idiot does this to his own kids? Elsewhere, somebody was critical of the name "Gay", but it's not all that uncommon. Gay Brewer was a former Masters champion on the PGA tour and Gay Talese is a well-known author for Esquire and the New York Times.

Why hasn't he changed his own name? What is he afraid of? Discrimination or hatred?
