In Response To A Friend's Facebook Post, And Then In Response Another Person's Replies (With Some Additions)

I maintain that "Coker" (1977) needs to be overturned. After all, being in support of capital punishment for rape is being pro life. As I chimed in on the original post, and then replied to the friend of the friend (names omitted):

I myself am pro life, and I guarantee that rape would happen less were "Coker" (1977) overturned. An overturn would effect an automatic overturning of "Kennedy" (2008), by the way, and I say that rapists should face the possibility of capital punishments since they've all but left their victims physically dead. Of course, the rapists who also physically murder their victims (including by effecting victims' deaths due to STDs, suicides, and fatal injuries besides STDs) also ought to face the possibility of capital punishments. 

I don't want to see rapists be able to take lives anymore, and I don't advocate capital punishment for rapists lightly. In my own families' cases:



  1. A cousin of my mom was gang raped in college.
  2.  I'm pretty sure that one of her sisters was raped either by a priest before she was a teen or even by Father Maskell himself (Mom denies the possibility since my aunt apparently defended him, though my grandmother I don't deny itI even told Mom that she could've been Stockholmed,) That aunt, by the way, died nine years and a week ago due to alcoholism that onset when she was 13 (She was born in November 1951 and was the first graduate of Keough, which opened in 1965.). She also told my sister that she liked Jesus, but not the Church. Looking back and even right after she died,  I knew that (when I saw the pictures at the funeral home) she was a pretty-enough young girl for perverted priests to want to target her.
  3. A cousin of my dad (Ziggy Churnetski) participated in a gang rape in the 1920s (and he was sadly in prison for only five years and had to pay a fine of only $500. He even eventually married, and I have no idea whether his wife was his victim.) 
  4. Another cousin of my dad raped someone else and murdered another person. (I wish that his victim's sister, Lana Wood, would come out with it, by the way—as I've said, there's something in that Danilovich water, and I should've figured that rape wouldn't escape our side of the family. Ziggy was Great-Granddad's once-removed cousin.)
  5. In short, I've heard about and seen what rapists can do to people.
I also don't find abortion acceptable in any case (though I used to find abortion acceptable in cases of rape and incest—God decided that my being fully pro life would take my now-ex younger stepsister, of all people, pointing out to me that abortion would be an unfair punishment to the baby, and she wasn't exactly the best stepsister in the world). In fact, if for nothing else, keeping a rape-conceived baby might be a practical measure in terms of getting a DNA sample from him or her to figure out or confirm who raped his or her mother. Besides, there are many couples whom want to adopt children; and my mom's cousin's husband ended up adopting her child when they as a couple could not have children.

(By the way, I hope that my now-ex stepsisters can see that my sister and I weren't talking slanderously when we pointed out what my dad is like—and even though, thank God, he never sexually abused us, verbal and other non-sexual abuse is still abuse—and my now-ex stepmother seems to have seen that. Incidentally, I feel sorry for my dad at this point—he's repeated the "Hurt people hurt people" cycle, and his life choices have caught up to him.)

The Obvious Real Perspective Of Jacob Malone, As Put Into My Words

On April 28, 2017, ex-pastor Jacob Malone received a sentence from Chester County, Pennsylvania judge Jacqueline Cody in light of the fact that he entered a guilty plea due to intoxicating his rape victim with alcohol, exerting undue influence over her as her pastor, and forcibly getting her pregnant. I put his sorry-not-perspective in my own words:

I'm sorry...only that I got caught. Were I really sorry, I never would've planned to victimize my former charge in the first place—let alone began to carry out my plan by luring her to reside with me, Libby, and my and Libby's children. I never would've lured her into the Malone residence only to pile alcohol onto her, kiss and touch her as a starting point to commit progressively-worse acts of sexual battery, and exert undue influence over her—especially as her pastor and surrogate father, I knew that I could get her to be quiet as I intoxicated her with alcohol and sexually batter her in the name of Jesus. Besides, I got her to live with me permanently—or so I thought—and go to school in my area—and she never ratted me out to her teachers or other school staff once.

Then I forcibly got her pregnant as I once again raped her—if I were really sorry, why would I force a child, especially a pro-life one whom knows that neither she nor our child did anything wrong, to have to prepare to explain why she's not a whore or a teenage delinquent? I brazenly put that girl in a position to carry a scarlet letter on her name—she wondered if she did something to deserve what I did, and I couldn't have cared less.

Meanwhile, I didn't turn myself into the police or confess to my church—in fact, I had Libby sit with me as I made a video to tell a different story than that my church kicked me out after I raped one of my congregants and forcibly had her conceive a child. I also never surrendered my passport—in fact, I acted like an asylum-seeking victim and a refugee while my victim had to go through a painful process to find refuge in God—and I didn't pay any child support or victim compensation before I intercontinentally traveled.

I came back to the United States two weeks later to turn myself into the police only because I was a wanted man whom wanted to enter a guilty plea and craft a favorable plea deal for myself. If I were repentant in the meantime, I would've filed divorce from Libby and give her full custody of my and Libby's kids in order to protect her and them—after all, I didn't get only two years; at least 18 years and 5 months alone is a long time to not see Libby and my children, including the child of my victim; and I've lost my paternity rights in regard to both Libby's children by me and my victim's child forcibly conceived by me.

I could go on and give some other details, though you get the point—as I said, I'm sorry only that I got caught.

Father Maskell Still Did It, Even Though His Friend Was the Hitman. As For His Victims and Children(?)

They could use his DNA profile to see if any of his rape victims were impregnated by him. By the way, that's another reason that I'm pro-life: do people want to destroy living evidence of rape? These doctors and prosecutors should encourage girls and women whom are impregnated by rape to keep the babies, extract DNA from the mothers' wombs while they're in the womb, and use the DNA as evidence against the rapists, and then either let the women keep the babies or adopt them out, even to rape victims whom wanted children and were left infertile as a result of being raped.

As for my reaction to the DNA evidence and assuming that no evidence with Maskell's DNA on it was destroyed: "HOLY ****!" So, he had his friend do the hitjob, which would explain the bloody shirt, and either clean off his own ring or use another ring. His friend was basically a murder-for-hire hitman.
His victims must be wondering why the friend's long-since ex wife didn't come forward before. He was evil and shrewd enough, though to use his friend as a hitman was even more shrewdly evil.
Also, you don't take someone to a murder victim's body & further assault a victim of sexual battery if you weren't complicit. Maskell did. The assault of further battery and murder was, of course, the infamous "Do you see what happens when you say bad things about people?"
Incidentally, now that we know where Maskell's buried, I would not be surprised if someone tries to vandalize his grave. Many are still understandably angry.

No...You Think, Alec Baldwin?

Blaming other people for your verbal and other abuse only damages your daughter more, by the way:

"'It’s thrown in your face every day. There are people who admonish me, or attack me, and use that as a constant spearhead to do that. It’s a scab that never heals cause it’s being picked at all the time by other people. My daughter, that’s hurt her in a permanent way.'”

Of course verbal-abuse and other-abuse survivors (and others whom were affected, such as primary and secondary witnesses) never forget—we may forgive, though it may take a long time and we may relapse into unforgiveness; and we may not hold grudges (which is what "forgive and forget" really means*, although part of relapsing into unforgiveness includes relapsing into holding grudges); but what we won't forget, even when specific instances are far enough in the back of our minds, in our subconsciouses, or repressed altogether and in the inaccessible parts of our memories.


*It's as when God says that He'll "remember [our] sins no more" and that love "keeps no record of wrongs"—in other words, He won't hold what we did against us; but He doesn't forget what we did.

"Honoring Our Fathers"

Conversely, the dads need to be responsible dads in the first place. Think about Stuart Dauermann's comment to Jews for Jesus' David Brickner regarding the exploitative "That Jew Died For You" video. In this case, we could take "That Jew Died For You" for especially fathers who abuse (e.g., commit violence against and/or neglect) to their children and/or their childrens' mothers in the name of God and "well-deserved backlash...and...comments that are piling up" for "a pop culture that constantly disrespects and mocks fathers."

"You will discover that your message is not getting across, but that people are repelled, disgusted, and enraged. Paul reminds us that it is no compliment when “the name of God is blasphemed among the Gentiles because of you.” [Romans 2:24]"

In the same way that Anti-Semitic gentiles and Anti-Messianic Jews eagerly use "That Jew Died For You" to turn Jews away from Jesus, so the world eagerly bashes the role of fatherhood because of especially so-called "Judeo-Christian", "red-blooded God-and-country" heads of households who are more than willing to (for example, and quite classically) twist verses such as Ephesians 5:22 and 6:1-3 (the latter of which got twisted on me constantly by my self-hating and abusive dad—who at least, by the way to his credit, would find "That Jew For You" highly unacceptable. After all, keep in mind that this the guy who deliberately drew a swastika just to throw it into his lit fireplace when I was having an OCD flareup one time.).

The Puzzle, Aka "When Honest People Are Screwed Over Because Life Doesn't Fit Face-Value, Sanitized Molds"





In short, life isn't a cry-and-dry mold in of itself. In fact, lives often don't fit molds. There are common threads in every life, and every life is nonetheless like every DNA code: no two are exactly like, even in twins.

Sometimes, that means that a life will be pretty messy and broken, and unable to have its pieces put together for it. For example, with my life, I don't have all of the pieces that can make others see the puzzle of a Crypto Jew's daughter who came from a background that she never expected. Similarly and to a greater degree, Dylan Farrow doesn't have all of the pieces that can make others see that part of her puzzle on which Woody Allen's traumatic abuse against her is painted.

With some people, they'd have to see the puzzle pieces being made and painted on in order for them to believe that the puzzle exists and that the pieces are somewhere out there, if not right there in their faces. Case in point, this is how I got screwed over when I didn't take everything at face value and wanted to make sure that what I saw was everything that was there, and when I laid out a good number of the puzzle pieces that I do have:

It doesn't say anything outright, but all the details point to a Roman Catholic wedding - it's in Polish, not Russian, so not Russian Orthodox, and banns and a parish priest are mentioned, so not Jewish. There is nothing in the document pointing to a non-Catholic ceremony. Did your cousin justify their opinion in any way?

He said, "Mysle ze tak a nawet napewno to sa katolicy no ale tylko tyle znalazlem:)". Roughly, this translates to (as far as I can tell with Google Translate), "I think that so even sure these are not Catholics but only so much I found :)".

It says the exact opposite, actually: "I think they were, or I am even sure they were Catholic, but this is only based on this one document (that I found)". Google Translate is NOT to be relied on too heavily.

I do have a question, though: why would they fall out with their son if they were Catholic, since he and his wife converted to Catholicism? Also, they didn't fall out until after Great-Granddad was born. Furthermore, why would he have to lie so much on his naturalization, etc. documents?

Reply    Quote
Magdalena  Photos: 1  ♀Yesterday, 12:24am     #

they could have quarrelled with their son for any number of reasons, don't you think? and how could he convert to Catholicism if he was clearly born to Catholic parents? as to naturalisation documents, they were filled out by Ellis Island officials who wrote down whatever they thought they heard the immigrants say, or just wrote down what they thought was right, esp. regarding names and surnames. many immigrants were illiterate or half illiterate, so they then made further spelling mistakes in their names as time went on.

Maybe they were Anusim. His wife wasn't born an Anusit, though; I assure you that. In fact, her branch was a holdout among the Andrulevicuses. She would not have married a Catholic. Also, can you translate this for me? " jak cos znajde to tobie wysle oki:)" I want to make sure that I'm reading what he's saying rightly.

do you have any birth, marriage, or death certificates regarding the son's wife, then?
also, all the surnames so far - Czerniecki, Daniłowicz, Wierzbińska, and Kruszyńska, are 100% typical Polish surnames. the same goes for the given names - Paweł, Dominika, Wojciech, Maryanna, Antoni, and Katarzyna.

Thank you. I thought that's what it was saying. Yes, I do. She also gave her parents' names as "Anthony" and "Katherine". However, the Andrulevicuses were Jewish. Her mother was a Margiewicz (Morgiewicz/Morgovich. She was related to Shmuil Morgovich of Stakliskes.), and her dad was a Andrulevicus. He had relatives such as Vilgelm Andrulevich, Nik Andrelovich, Rochla Andrelewitz, and Jacob Andralowitz (who they sent a Jewish serviceman's card.). Also, "Pawel" ("Paul") was surprisingly used among Jews (See JewFAQ), and "Danilowicz" simply means "ben-Daniel".

Daniłowicz is both a Russian and a Polish surname; they might even have belonged to the szlachta.

Nickidewbear:

Antoni and Katarzyna were very popular given names at the time, so there is no reason to believe she would be lying. E.g. every other woman in my father's family was baptised Katarzyna over a period of almost 100 years.

How do you know they were all related? Just curious. My dad tried to find information about the Lithuanian / Belorussian part of his family, but most of the family records on that side had been burnt as a result of the Bolshevik Revolution and WW2 atrocities... He could only go as far back as the early twenties (i.e., within living memory).

Nickidewbear:
 Her mother was a Margiewicz


Morgiewicz / Margiewicz is also a Polish szlachta surname.

You seem to have a whole bunch of szlachta surnames in your family, all in all :-)
Of course, you might also be descended from the peasants who worked for and then were freed by these szlachta families, as it was the custom to grant such peasants the surname of their former master.

They didn't. Trust me; Pop-Pop tried that canard for years. He tried to connect us to Stefan Czarniecki for years, and he adamantly died that we are Jews . Then he changed his story to, "If we had any Jewish blood, I don't know about it."

Nickidewbear:She also gave her parents' names as "Anthony" and "Katherine"

Antoni and Katarzyna were very popular given names at the time, so there is no reason to believe she would be lying. E.g. every other woman in my father's family was baptised Katarzyna over a period of almost 100 years.


"Katherine" was also a variant of "Tillie". So were "Regina" and "Cecelia", and two of her girls had those names. She also believed in shidduch.

"Andrulevicus" was exclusively from Stakliskes, and Great-Granddad was born in Tsuman because of his mom's route to and from Lipsk, Poland and Buzhanka in Kiev Gubernia (now Cherkas'ka oblast), Ukraine.

Nickidewbear: Her mother was a Margiewicz

The peasant schtick is probably it. Pop-Pop would have been thrilled to have made the szlachta connection. He could never do it. He kept pulling the Stefan Czarniecki card and told the story of how Great-Granddad came here alone, married Great-Grandma, served in Korea, and died of Black Lung when Dad was 12-never the real story, of how he came as a boy with his parents, married a believing Jew (which made my Anusit great-great-grandma vomit [both figuratively and, I suppose, literally]-and actually literally try to mentally break down my great-grandma, the daughter of a Nagy-Trudnyak and Korsch-Munka who were Anusim), never served this country a day in his life, and committed suicide when Dad was four.

I never even knew that Great-Granddad's siblings existed, let alone that they were born here. Nor did I know that Aunt Mary was named for her grandmothers and not the Virgin-per minhag Sefardi, which my dad's atDNA attests to. Actually, Aunt Mary even said that Pop-Pop would fall asleep in the back of the church when they were younger-which I never would have guessed. Further, their Christmases were very secular-we read "The Night Before Christmas", not the Bible, for example.

I don't understand that part at all. Isn't Tillie a diminutive of Otylie?

Matchmaking was not exclusive to Jewish communities, you know.

Yes, but "Tillie" was used among quite a bit among Jews as a Yiddish name. "Katherine" was a secular form of "Tillie".

Yes, but Catholics could marry for love. Jews weren't allowed to do so in the Old Country.

Based on Great-Granddad's Ellis Island record which says "Suman" and Vil'gel'm's voting information for the Duma that says that he lived in Buzhanaka.

He faked being devout in my generation. Also, he was not buried in a Catholic cemetery. Furthermore, going to church for him was based on "tradition", not devotion.

Also, many Jews used gentile names. Furthermore, you say, "Czerniecki, Daniłowicz, Wierzbińska, and Kruszyńska, are 100% typical Polish surnames. the same goes for the given names - Paweł, Dominika, Wojciech, Maryanna, Antoni, and Katarzyna." "Maryanna" could have easily been "Maryam Hannah" or "Maryam Khannah". As for "Kruszynska", Jews who converted inSefarad took names like "de la Cruz", "de Jesus", and "de Santa Maria".

According to Ancestry.com, "Polish (Kruszynski): habitational name for someone from any of various places called Kruszyn, Kruszyna, or Kruszyny. These place names are probably from Polish dialect krusza 'pear tree' or from a derivative of kruszyc 'to crumble', 'fragment', or from a derivative of kruch 'block', 'lump'."

This may have well referred to the cross (tree/stake) as "de la Cruz" did; "kruch" could refer to the firstfruits or a special part of the matzah or lechem reserved for kohanim; or, in the case of "block", the cornerstone of the Temple. Anusim and Jews otherwise were clever like that.

An apology for what exactly? For the fact that a surname is being used by both Jews and Gentiles? :-)
Of course Jews used many Polish names, they lived amongst Poles after all; but while I can list genealogical records showing these surnames were used by gentile Poles, and you can do the same for the Jews, there is still no hard evidence one way or the other, it seems. That's all I am saying. I'm not saying some of your ancestors were not Jewish, I'm just saying it's not really evident from the info in this thread.

Nickidewbear:
According to Ancestry.com, "Polish (Kruszynski): habitational name for someone from any of various places called Kruszyn, Kruszyna, or Kruszyny. These place names are probably from Polish dialect krusza 'pear tree' or from a derivative of kruszyc 'to crumble', 'fragment', or from a derivative of kruch 'block', 'lump'."

This may have well referred to the cross (tree/stake) as "de la Cruz" did; "kruch" could refer to the firstfruits or a special part of the matzah or lechem reserved for kohanim; or, in the case of "block", the cornerstone of the Temple. Anusim and Jews otherwise were clever like that.


With this type of reasoning, you could probably take any random surname from anywhere in the world and claim it is of Jewish origin. It would be much more realistic, I think, to accept that at least part of your ancestors were Polish gentiles. At least looking at the marriage certificate I translated, it sure seems that way.

Nickidewbear:
 why would they fall out with their son if they were Catholic, since he and his wife converted to Catholicism? Also, they didn't fall out until after Great-Granddad was born.

There are literally a million reasons. Maybe he forgot his mother's birthday, maybe he cheated his father while playing cards, maybe his wife hated his mother. We simply don't know. But what we can say is that it is highly unlikely that they fell out with their son when he converted to Catholicism, given that the documentation we have shows them as being married as Catholics themselves.

Nickidewbear:
why would he have to lie so much on his naturalization, etc. documents?

Again, there are literally a million reasons. Maybe he was on the run after robbing a bank, maybe he'd always hated the name Daniel (or whatever), maybe the immigration officer wrote his name down wrong and he thought it would just be easier to use his new 'American' name on the documents, maybe he didn't lie at all and you're just looking at the documents wrong. We simply don't know. But what we can say is that it is highly unlikely that he was lying as a result of converting to Catholicism, given that the documentation we have shows his parents as being married as Catholics themselves.

Nickidewbear:
She would not have married a Catholic.

Interesting you say that. What basis do you have for saying that she wouldn't have married a Catholic, given that the documentation we have shows her as being married in a Catholic church as a Catholic.

Nickidewbear:
Yes, but Catholics could marry for love. Jews weren't allowed to do so in the Old Country.

It never ceases to amaze me that somebody can have read so much about Jews but know so little about them.

All I'm saying is that their being married Catholic or even them being Catholic does not exclude their being Jewish. Jewishness is ethnic and/or religious. One does not exclude the other.

Well, there are still many "lost" Jews, as Shavei Israel calls many Anusim and bnei-Anusim. Also, in Ezekiel 44, for example, it reads:

28 "It shall be, in regard to their inheritance, that I am their inheritance. You shall give them no possession in Israel, for I am their possession. 29 They shall eat the grain offering, the sin offering, and the trespass offering; every dedicated thing in Israel shall be theirs. 30 The best of all firstfruits of any kind, and every sacrifice of any kind from all your sacrifices, shall be the priest's; also you shall give to the priest the first of your ground meal, to cause a blessing to rest on your house. 31 The priests shall not eat anything, bird or beast, that died naturally or was torn by wild beasts.


In another translation, it reads,

28 "'Their inheritance is to be this: I myself am their inheritance. You are not to grant them any possession in Isra'el - I myself am their possession. 29 They are to eat the grain offerings, sin offerings and guilt offerings; and everything in Isra'el devoted [to God] will be theirs. 30 The first of all the firstfruits of everything, and every voluntary contribution of everything, from all your offerings, will be for the cohanim. You are also to give the cohen the first of your dough, so that a blessing will rest on your house. 31 The cohanim are not to eat anything, bird or animal, that dies naturally or is torn to death.


"The first of your dough" could refer to a lump of dough, going back to the meaning of "lump". See, e.g., Genealoj.

You want cut-and-dry realities. It doesn't work that way. Sometimes, Jews even witnessed baptisms.

We weren't. You either did shidduch or you didn't marry. Marrying for love in Orthodox Judaism was avodah zarah"idolizing" romantic love over kiddushin.

Nickidewbear:

The reality is that when a couple get married by a Catholic priest, at least one of them is a Catholic. Back then almost always both of them were. And back then, a non-Catholic partner had to promise during the wedding that their children would be brought up as Catholics, meaning that their son could not have converted to Catholicism: he would have been brought up as a Catholic.

Nickidewbear:
If he robbed a bank, he would've been extradited and/or deported from the U.S..

Which is precisely why he would want to lie about his name (and quite possibly other details about his past). Maybe he lied to conceal his Jewish past (the one which involved being brought up as a Catholic), maybe he lied for a million other reasons, maybe he actually told the truth: you simply do not know (although you can be pretty sure that as he was brought up as a Catholic, having a Jewish past most probably isn't the reason).

Nickidewbear:
She (Alexandria) was an Orthodox Jew. Learn to read.

An orthodox Jew who married a Catholic would be shunned by the community.

Nickidewbear:

Since when were all Jews Orthodox?

Frankly Nickie, I couldn't care less whether your ancestors were Jews, Catholics, Zulus, shape-shifting aliens from the planet Tharg, whatever. What I would like is for you to get better, for you to be happier, and I really do not think that you obsessing about a past where for many generations your father's family have engaged in a conspiracy to hide the truth from you is doing you any good at all.

That doesn't mean that they kept those promises. Also, again, Maćkowa was small enough not to have a chief "rabbi".

Poland and Russia would have demanded him back had he stolen anything from a bank. The law was stricter back then. Also,

That's the point. They were Jews when they married. Granduncle Tony explicitly wrote:

my emphasis (bold):
Periodically a church pastor would run a heritage trip back to Poland for a group. Very few of those who immigrated would return. Occasionally someone "in the family" in America would join a relative for the return trip, Usually meeting the Polish or Slovak relatives for the first time and occasionally maintaining a letter writing relationship afterwards. This DID NOT happen in our family.

There was not very much correspondence with the Polish family. Only an infrequent letter. There were no exchanges other than through the Polish Church which would have clothing drives and send clothes to Poland in general, but not to specific family members. Bertha's photos which came after the trips were the only contact until they asked for the deed to be changed in the mid 1960's.


They were shunned.


Nickidewbear: You either did shidduch or you didn't marry. Marrying for love in Orthodox Judaism was avodah zarah,
Since when were all Jews Orthodox?


You were either Orthodox, Karaite, or "meshumad". Reform (Neolog), Conservative (Masorti), and other denominations of Judaism were not founded until the 18th-20th Centuries.

Nickidewbear:You don't want reality, Harry. What you want is reality to fit your mold. It doesn't. Again, it isn't cut and dry.

What I would like is for you to get better, for you to be happier, and I really do not think that you obsessing about a past where for many generations your father's family have engaged in a conspiracy to hide the truth from you is doing you any good at all.


I never said that it was a conspiracy, and I could get you prosecuted for criminal libel for suggesting that I have a mental illness. What I said is that they deliberately hid and lied about our past. I didn't say for conspiratorial reasons, though I did say that it was wrong. Again, you want cut-and-dry reality. Especially for Anusim, it doesn't work that way. Fine case-in-point example:

It is difficult to generalize about all descendants of conversos. Naturally, no "*marrano" Judaism existed in the Peninsula. Various customs and different prayers developed among different groups. In certain areas, however, a very strong "Jewish" identity remained until almost modern times. That is why we have recently witnessed the return of many Crypto-Jews in Belmonte, in northern Portugal, to Judaism and why so many descendants of conversos left Spain and Portugal and joined existing Jewish communities or formed their own after their return to normative Judaism.


Also, a kohein recently found out that he is a kohein:

Aoflko's mother told him that she and his father were Polish Jews whose families perished in the Auschwitz concentration camp. Fearing post-war anti-Semitism in Poland, they decided to hide their identities and pass themselves off as Catholics.


Getting married in a shul, say, in Krasnopol or Sejny may have subjected them to persecution, etc.. For example, they could've been murdered on the way home:

ANUSIM (Heb. אֲנוּסִים; "forced ones"), persons compelled by overwhelming pressure, whether by physical threats, psychological stress, or economic sanctions, to abjure Judaism and adopt a different faith.


Also,

The community hesitated for three days before making a decision. Finally the majority, some 500, accepted Christianity. The Christians in Clermont greeted the event with rejoicing: "Candles were lit, the lamps shone, the whole city radiated with the light of the snow-white flock" (i.e., the forced converts). The Jews who preferred exile left for *Marseilles (Gregory of Tours, Histories, 5:11) The poet Venantius Fortunatus composed a poem to commemorate the occasion. In 582 the Frankish king Chilperic compelled numerous Jews to adopt Christianity. Again the anusim were not wholehearted in their conversion, for "some of them, cleansed in body but not in heart, denied God, and returned to their ancient perfidy, so that they were seen keeping the Sabbath, as well as Sunday" (ibid., 6:17).


Not everyone could handle the "physical threats, psychological stress, or economic sanctions," especially in a small town where their Jewishness and Judaism would stick out like a sore thumb.






Ashkenazim were well aware of what their Sefardi brothers and sisters went through. In fact, many Ashkenazim are descended from Sefardim who fled Sefarad.

Nickidewbear:That doesn't mean that they kept those promises.
But the balance of probabilities is that they did. Just as the balance of probabilities is that their son did not convert to Catholicism but was actually brought up a Catholic.

Nickidewbear:Also, again, Maćkowa was small enough not to have a chief "rabbi".
a) Says who?
b) What was stopping them getting one in for a planned event?
c) You really think that they thought 'Sod getting a rabbi in for the wedding, we'll just get the Catholic priest to do it'? Really?


a) Small towns didn't have chiefs "rabbis".
b) Did you not read about Anusim?
c) Yes. In fact, a set of great-great-great-great grandparents converted to Catholicism to marry and avoid Anti Semitism. They lived the rest of their lives in a small town where there were only three open Jews in 1887.

Nickidewbear:Poland and Russia would have demanded him back had he stolen anything from a bank. The law was stricter back then.
a) No they wouldn't: they couldn't, there was no extradition treaty for bank robbery between the USA and Russia back then.
b) They wouldn't have known he was there if he lied about his name.



They would've looked for him. Also, Russians hated Poles and Jews, and they did "Jew hunts" for no good reason all of the time.

Nickidewbear:You were either Orthodox, Karaite, or "meshumad". Reform (Neolog), Conservative (Masorti), and other denominations of Judaism were not founded until the 18th-20th Centuries.
This wedding was in 1840, so 140 years after you say other denominations of Judaism were first founded.



a) Reform Judaism didn't take off until the Middle 1800s in Western Europe, and it rarely happened in Slovakia, etc.; and it rarely, if it all, happened in the Russian Empire, the hotbed of Lubavitchi Judaism.
b) Conservative Judaism broke from Reform Judaism.
c) Reconstructionist Judaism was founded around 1920, when Mordechai Kaplan broke with both Orthodox and Conservative Judaism.

Nickidewbear: I could get you prosecuted for criminal libel for suggesting that I have a mental illness.
a) No I didn't say that.
b) No you can't.
c) Even if I had and you could, as Jon, points out, you've posted certain information both here and elsewhere.



a) You implied it.

b) Having OCD/Anxiety, Depression, and ADD is way different than having, e.g., delusional paranoia.

c) I can share my own information; thank you.

I accepted that the certificate is theirs once it was translated, and I was able to catch nuances in it.

Please keep your thread on topic, thank you

Please keep your thread on topic, thank you


I was; I just had a legitimate question: "Why would they fall out with their son if they were Catholic, since he and his wife converted to Catholicism? Also, they didn't fall out until after Great-Granddad was born. Furthermore, why would he have to lie so much on his naturalization, etc. documents?" To be honest, I think that someone is mistaken or lying: either Google Translate is or Magdalena is, or Maciej found a document with the same names that Great-Great-Granddad gave but with people who different people. I can't tell who. Also, that they married Catholic doesn't preclude them from being Jewish if they are the right people.

The translation that Google came up with is, ""I think that so even sure these are not Catholics but only so much I found :)" for ""Mysle ze tak a nawet napewno to sa katolicy no ale tylko tyle znalazlem:)". I also typed "no" in for Polish and got the following in English:

well
No!-interjection
Well!
No!, Więc!, Ano!, Ale!, Aha!, He!



I just want to make sure that I'm getting an honest translation. Also, when I talked to someone else about whether "priest" could be "rabbi", he said:

Hi,
ks. W. Olszewski e.g. Wojciech Olszewski was the catholic priest of parish Wigry till 9th June 1875.

So he couldn't be rabbi.

I've never seen such certificate till now, but seems to me peculiar that although it was the religious marriage there are nothing about the groom and bride were Catholic or not.
But maybe it was something obvious for the priest and he didn't mention this.

[I had asked:]
When the certificate says, "priest", does it mean "rabbi" perchance? From what a cousin told me, this was a Non-Catholic certificate.


Why would they not mention if the parents were Catholic, too? Also, banns being a week apart fits well into line with openly-Jewish and Anusi practice. That's all that I'm saying.

To be honest, I think that someone is mistaken or lying: either Google Translate is or Magdalena is,


Google translate is not that reliable. At all.
Why would Magdalena lie? She translated that certificate, she was trying to help you.

Nickidewbear:
 ""Mysle ze tak a nawet napewno to sa katolicy no ale tylko tyle znalazlem:)"


The translation Magdalena gave for this sentence is correct.

She, Harry, and Jon have had problems with that my family history doesn't fit the mold for how a Jew's history normally fits. So, she could be lying to me in order to affect me to think something different, since she is fluent in Polish and I have no clue what is being said. So, she could be trying to dupe me. And anyway, I asked the mod.

Nickidewbear: ""Mysle ze tak a nawet napewno to sa katolicy no ale tylko tyle znalazlem:)"

How do I know? And Google Translate is not perfect but is reliable for the basics. Also, you conveniently dodged the point of when I talked to someone else about whether "priest" could be "rabbi". He stated point blankly, "I've never seen such certificate till now, but seems to me peculiar that although it was the religious marriage there are nothing about the groom and bride were Catholic or not. But maybe it was something obvious for the priest and he didn't mention this."

I know that in Hungarian Slovakia, a set of great-great-great-great-grandparents who were Catholic had to be "acquitted" to marry because they were ethnic Jews whose conversion the priest highly doubted (since they really were Anusim and not genuine converts). My cousin, who would loved if that side wasn't Jewish, told me that the Hungarian word meant "acquitted", and he's a pretty-honest guy-he wasn't happy at all that he had to concede that I figured out what happened on that side.

What she wrote was truthful.
I understand Polish well enough to confirm this, and I don't have any reason to lie to you whatsoever.

Nickidewbear:

Not by a long shot it isn't. We wouldn't have so many posters asking questions about Polish language if Google translate was that reliable.

I'm not trying to dodge anything. The only reason I commented was to confirm that Magdalena was correct in her translation, nothing more.

I'm not saying that you do. I'm saying that she might.

Then why do I get so many hits saying that is reliable for the basic gist?

That's an important point, though. A native Polophone who I trust says that he's never seen a certificate like that for Catholics.

Nickidewbear you seem very ungrateful, asking for a translation then calling the translator a liar.

She's a bit more than fluent as I believe she's a professional translator/interpreter and would have no reason to lie to you. Most people would be very grateful that she has given up her time to help them.

I find it hard to understand that you think she would then lie about that sentence. To what end?
And the sentence is correct whatever you might think.

I use it for translation of a few words here and there.
When it comes to sentences, in my opinion it's more often wrong than right.

Conveniently, you omitted the part where I said that she could be fooling me because she speaks the language and I don't. If I wanted to lie to someone who is not fluent in English, I could. But I wouldn't.

She would. More than numerous times, she has said that those with Polish names and Catholics can't be Jews, much less passers or Anusim. I also said, "Ok. Thanks." and brought up a legitimate question. I don't just accept things at face value. If that's the kind of person that she and you want, then that's certainly not what you're getting from me.

And how do I know? She's not one of these people that I can exactly trust. I had a legitimate question, and she dodged with, "they could have quarrelled with their son for any number of reasons, don't you think? and how could he convert to Catholicism if he was clearly born to Catholic parents? as to naturalisation documents, they were filled out by Ellis Island officials who wrote down whatever they thought they heard the immigrants say, or just wrote down what they thought was right, esp. regarding names and surnames. many immigrants were illiterate or half illiterate, so they then made further spelling mistakes in their names as time went on."

If he was born Catholic, why did he marry a Jew? Also, why did he fall out with his parents for converting? Why did his son and grandson marry Jews? Why does Dad's atDNA show Middle Eastern ("Caucaus" and West Asian) DNA? Besides, in Poland, you either intramarried, converted, or were excommunicated.

Nickidewbear:Then why do I get so many hits saying that is reliable for the basic gist?

Your opinion seems to contradict with the evidence, though; and then I get the rapsheet when I bring up evidence that points to something? I'm sorry for you that I'm not the mold-fitting Jew; and if something seems questionable and agenda pushed, I'm going to bring it up.

You will always hit a brick wall in your research unless you at least consider the possibility that you and your family are NOT Jewish. Got no documents, got no proof - that's how genealogy works. But I told you that already back in 2009 or so...

I actually do have documents, some of which I found myself and some of which others found for me. Besides, in those days, you converted "up" and not "down" unless you wanted to face severe persecution. Let's look at the Andruleviches, for example: some Anusim, some open Jews. If you don't believe me, you can go look them up yourself. Also, one (e.g., being married Catholic) does not preclude the other (e.g., being ethnically Jewish):

Again, it's not all cut and dry. Jews can be Catholics, and vice versa. My branch became Jewish Catholics for whatever reason. I may not be the smartest person, but I'm not stupid. Also, I didn't wake up one morning and decide, "Hmmm. I'm going to make up this ******** story." I didn't even know that Great-Granddad's parents came over here. By the way, "he spoke perfect English" (as my granduncle Tony said) and my great-great-granddad conveniently did not remember what ship he was on, gave 3-4 different birth years, lied about most of his kids' birthdates (either that; or they all lied), and gave both May and November as his immigration dates. He could also write.

On his draft card, he gave 1877. 

Pretty sloppy for someone who didn't want to lie.

Also, this record made the June 26th date check out for Great-Great-Grandma:

Had that record not come up, I would have continued to question Great-Great-Grandma's birthdate. I would have no reason to lie about what my family did.

  • Here, his wife gives 1879. Quite convenient when he gave 1876 and 1877.
