on the Factual Bullcrap blog, the editor has a post called Intermarriage = Out of Judiasm.
Is intermarriage good for the jewish people or bad for the jewish people?
let us see what happens to other peoples who shun intermarriage.
Since almost all Amish descend from about 200 18th century founders, genetic disorders from inbreeding exist in more isolated districts.
"One of the biggest problems facing the [Samaritan] community today is the issue of continuity. With such a small population, divided into only four families (Cohen, Tsedakah, Danfi and Marhib; a fifth family died out in the last century) and a general refusal to accept converts, there has been a history of genetic disease within the group due to the small gene pool. "
Anyone care to guess what will happen to jews if there is no intermarriage?
The second part of this post has nothing to do with this post but it is peripherally relevant to the first part on how jewish law kills jews. It is about ancient Israel. Why did ancient Israel fall to the Romans? The answer is, in the age when geographical expansion was the name of the game, Israel was not expanding because of the religion, and the Romans were. So when ancient Israel and the Romans clashed, no more Israel.
The moral of this post is, do your own research on whatever rabbis may tell you.
