"There is a major "machlokes" in Shas if the Cussim are to be treated as "goyim" or if they are to be treated as irreligious Jews. Some say that since they only converted to save themselves from the lions, it was an insincere conversion and they are technically still "goyim." Others say that since they wanted to save their lives, they really did want to convert and are considered Jewish; Jews who worship idols."
Sad that Shomronim should not be accepted as Jews on the basis that their original reason for wishing to convert was fear of lions.
You can't hold modern Shomronim responsible for the actions of their ancestors; it's rather like Jews been held responsible for the death of Jesus which is absurd!
And as to intermarriage, surely they are so Jewish already they should be welcomed into marriage. Intermarriage generally may be a problem, but not enough Jews in Israel is also a problem. My only reservation is that they still carry out animal sacrifice which I consider to be barbaric.
Anyway, looks like they still face prejudice.
(Mind you I should talk after placing them in the Looney Bin!)
