Jew Envy

This may come to a surprise to many Jews, but there are a lot of Gentiles who want to be you.

Really.

All the crap you all have been taking for what? A couple thousand years?  The oppression has been a screen for many Christian-esque groups to hide the obvious - they have Jew Envy. They want to be you. Think about it. Say I'm a Catholic or Baptist kid and I'm brought up with the stories that the Jews are the Chosen People, with the Promised Land, and all that Milk and all the Honey. And they weren't Chosen with all the Promises by some schmo at the 7-11. No. They had all the good stuff given to them by God. The same God you worship. That Christian kid will look around him and what does he have? His older brother's used Schwinn bicycle? That crappy Barbie Dream House Mom bought at the yard sale? Where's all the good stuff? This must mean that he or she isn't good enough. Who was good enough?

The Jews.

Freud theorized how people deal with unwanted thoughts/feelings through ego defenses. A person's ego will push away feelings of inadequacy. Those feelings go unconscious - underground. This system is problematical because these feelings don't go away, they leak back in some unsuspecting ways. One of these ways is called Reaction Formation. Reaction Formation is when you act in the opposite way of what you really, really want, but have repressed that original want. I'll use an example from Wikipedia.
A man who is overly aroused by pornographic material who utilizes reaction formation may take on an attitude of criticism toward the topic. He may end up sacrificing many of the positive things in his life, including family relationships, by traveling around the country to anti-pornography rallies. This view may become an obsession, whereby the man eventually does nothing but travel from rally to rally speaking out against pornography. He continues to do this, but only feels temporary relief, because the deeply rooted arousal to an unacceptable behaviour such as watching pornography is still present, and underlying the implementation of the defense. At that point he can be said to have developed an obsessional personality above and beyond the defense mechanism.
I humbly suggest Jew Envy is a subcategory of Reaction Formation. Can't deal with those feelings of gentile  inferiority? One of the USA's home grown cults (yes, I know they are all cults) have come up with a novel solution.
I've been reading, One Nation Under Gods - A History of the Mormon Church, by Richard Abanes and those Mormons have Jew Envy big time! Now what I'm about to say is going to sound crazy because it is. Mormon prophets preached that Mormons get a holy blood transfusion. God doesn't want your nasty, sinful, bodily fluids. He only wants the good stuff (he is God after all - he has standards).

So it's out with the Gentile blood in with the Jewish blood.
“[A]s the Holy Ghost falls upon one of the literal seed of Abraham, it is calm and serene… while the effect of the Holy Ghost upon a Gentile, is to purge out the old blood, and make him actually of the seed of Abraham. That man that has none of the blood of Abraham (naturally) must have a new creation by the Holy Ghost. In such a case, there may be more of a powerful effect upon the body, and visible to the eye, than upon an Israelite.”

- Prophet Joseph Smith, Jr., History of the Church, v. 3, p. 380
Wait, there's more.
“[Joseph taught] that the Gentile blood was actually cleansed out of their veins, and the blood of Jacob made to circulate in them; and the revolution and change in the system were so great that it caused the beholder to think they were going into fits.”

- Prophet Brigham Young, Journal of Discourses, v. 2, p. 269
Wow! God is SUPER-AWESOME! Any run of the mill non-Jew can become a Super-Jew with the blood transfusion AND following the one true faith - Mormonism.

It's as clear as mud.

This is Purgatory.

  4. Sooo. . .Reaction Formation would explain all those homophobes in government and churches who are closeted gays?

  5. @ Alison, yes, yes, and yes again! It explains why so many Republican homophobes get caught with gay hookers.

  6. So basically, anti-Semites hate us Jews because of sour grapes?

  7. I think it's part of the anti-Jewish equation. It is important to remember if it wasn't for Paul (that letter writer guy) Christianity would be a branch of Judaism. There was quite a conflict in the early Church on whether the followers of Jesus were a branch of Judaism or a thing unto itself. In such a conflict it is useful to demonize the other side.

  8. Damn, if I'd known my blood had superpowers, I wouldn't have wasted so many years being a hypochondriac.
