Are you saying that somebody who is born and raised in Poland and lived there all his life is not a Pole? Because that was what this was all about. My supposed "hate" for PL is just something you make of it. And, I believe that the vast majority of Poles are in fact Catholic. And since the example was about Poles, I just took the example. But to say "he is a Pole or any other nationality of the Jewish faith and she is a Pole or any other nationality of the non-Jewish faith" would be a bit ridiculous now, wouldn't it? That would be a Jewish statement.
Again, trying to flame me has no use, I don't give a sh*t if you try to do that. And that I hate Poles, well, that's all in your head.
There are many ideas of nationality and citizenship. Poland has allmost allways been a multicultural sociaty. That is why it has allways been important to separate one from each other so that you yourself know WHO YOU ARE. One goes more to the genes other more of the faith or of ideas, other just don't care. I for instance care for the faith and values, others may seem to think different.
So for me a Polish Jew = Polish beliving in the religion called Judaeism. Not one with Jewish ancestry unless he himself says it. Others saying it won't make me 100% sure on that person. While a German for instance is a different matter since they very clearly focus on the genes & language. If I knew perfect German most Germans (including BB^^) would assume I am German.
Wich I am not. Just German ancestry, nothing more.
And for the topic itself if he/she said the wife is slavic , for me it would been she had to be one of national connection to a Slavic linguilistic group, either Russian, Polish, Serbian, Croation or even Czech. It's just that this person don't really see any difference between slavic groups and puts them into one basket. Just like some people do with "Anglosaxons" or "Angole"
and I didn't notice "The word 'Polish' did not enter the picture." after third edit -.-
