Quote# 106343

[In response to a sociological study on Asian-Jewish marriages]

Of course many of these Jewish men are self-haters and have anti-semitic attitudes toward Jewish women. I don't care about these losers but I do care when they want to pretend to have Jewish families. THEY DON'T! This article mentions that many of these couples claim to be raising their children "Jewish" but that couldn't be further from the truth. These children are not Jews. You need a Jewish mother to be Jewish. These children are Asian gentiles with self-hating Jewish fathers who hate Jewish women. These couples should never be welcomed into the Jewish community.

Goomy pls

No, they are half-Asian children who are raised as Jews. I'd venture a guess that the majority of Jews who marry outside the faith are not anti-Semiic.

...they fell in love with someone who happened to be Asian? Hard concept, I know.

A real Jew would know that you don't NEED a Jewish mother, you can also convert to judaism, which these children are free to do if they feel like it. At which point they will become officially as jewish as anyone born to a jewish mother.

Marrying someone different from yourself does not automatically mean a person is 'self-hating' or that they hate their culture, religion of birth, etc.

You're just a reactionary moron.

Also, if you need a Jewish mother to be a Jew, why are outsiders allowed to convert? I think it's safe to say Sammy Davis Jr. didn't have one.

Screw you. It's none of your business who other people marry. And don't whine when your religion disappears after refusing to welcome people into your community.

So you wouldn't welcome a convert into Judaism? That doesn't make you sound very Jewish, but maybe you're a self-hating Jew.

This quote appears to be from one of those self-hating Jews, who nonetheless ended up hating the non-Jewish woman THAT HE CHOSE TO MARRY, and divorced her because he couldn't stand having children with a non-Jewish woman. Wow, what a mess to have between one's ears, and he only has religion to thank for that!

"These couples should never be welcomed into the Jewish community."

Call me crazy, but it seems that this attitude is far more dangerous to Judaism than the marrying gentiles thing.

When a religion has old laws that endorse of support inbreeding... Its time to reform that religion.

Congratulations anti-intermarriage, the Nazis would be so proud of you.

Lessee... they say that mixed-religion couples should never be welcomed into the Jewish community, and then they whine about how Jews marrying outside their religion is harming Judaism. Seems like it's their own attitudes which are harming their religion.

So is Judaism an ethnicity now?

And just what kind of Jew are you, douchebag?

1. Levantine?
2. West Asian Sephardic?
3. Lithuanian?
4. Iberian Sephardic?
5. Mediterranean?
6. Slavic?
7. Ashkenazi?
8. Mizahi?

If you want to slam the ethnic door now, you're just a bloody racist. Why don't you come up with a plan to exterminate all the Aryans while you're at it?

So they are not marrying the person they love, they are self loathing? Bah.

Yahwe hates slanted eyes. True fact!

@ markb

Plenty of Jews feel this way, anyway, as I found out when I dated a Jewish guy from a Reform, barely religous family. Conversion (which I never said I'd do, they just assumed I would) isn't good enough; you're "watering down the bloodline".

2/12/2015 3:27:05 PM

Professor von SCIENCE!!!

Of all the people on the planet to be hateful racist pricks you'd think the jews would know better since they constantly get kicked around for no good reason but no. These ass clowns haven't learned from history and decided to be dicks.

@1763778: I don't suppose they explained why bloodline purity is so important? It's not the sort of thing that's going to reduce the number of the Lamed Vov, or the like.

Besides...Book of Ruth. It flat-out states that David has some Moabite blood. "Watering down" didn't seem to be much of a problem with him.

You can kiss your Jewish community good-bye, then, because narrowing your gene pool is never a good idea.

Good thing I couldn't give even a quarter of a fuck about who is a Jew or not. Jewish eugenicists aren't that different from Neo-Nazi ones.

"These children are not Jews. You need a Jewish mother to be Jewish."

Except that many of the genetic markers common in Jewish communities are passed down through the patrilineal lines, not the matrilineal ones. Maybe your stupid 'you're only Jewish if your mother is' belief should catch up with modern science before you make yourself look stupid again, yeah?

"These couples should never be welcomed into the Jewish community."

You know who aren't welcome in the Jewish community? Racist assholes like you. Go sequester yourself in one of your little insular communities and leave the rest of us alone you fucking douchebag.

@Valerius

In point-of-fact, yes. Jews have traditions and cultural activities that are completely independent from the religion. For instance, Purim, which has no religious significance but is generally practiced in most Jewish communities and recognized as descending from a historical or mythological event. We have history beyond the religion and common languages ((Hebrew and Yiddish for instance)). Also, despite what certain people would like to claim, most Jews are not actually Khazars and most are descended from an individual community in the Middle East ((The only exceptions being the Ethiopian and Chinese Jewish communities, and even then there's some questions about their origins)).

We're considered an 'ethno-religious' group by most ethnographers and anthropologists. Additionally, as I said above, there are genetic markers that are unique or more common in largely Jewish communities, such as the Cohen Gene.

Ethiopian Jews. The previously Pentecostal Marilyn Monroe marrying Jewish playwright Arthur Miller; converting to Judaism herself.

Your call.
