The Anthropological Explanation Behind Gypsy Thievery
The Rom—as gypsies prefer to be called—consider themselves to be descended from Lilith, Adam's first wife in the Garden of Eden, according to some versions of the Old Testament.
Adam found Lilith too uppity—she was an early women's libber—and asked God for a more pliant wife. After another false start (Adam watched God make another woman from dust, as he had done with Adam, was mightily disgusted, refused this nameless Second Woman, and she faded away), God put Adam to sleep, plucked one of his ribs, and spun it into Eve.
The serpent, forbidden fruit, and expulsion from the garden ensued...but Lilith wasn't part of this whole flaming sword drama.
Since Lilith never committed original sin, and hence never fell from God's grace, her descendents are free to do whatever they like to us sinners.
Hey, I didn't say it made sense; it's just anthropology.
* Lilith: it is interesting to notice that there is a parallelism between "Adam's first wife" in the Jewish and Romany traditions. Both of them conceive the idea that before Eve there was another woman, who sinned against her man and was replaced by Eve - in Hebrew mythology she is called Lilith (allegedly Cain's mother), in the Romany one she has not a specific name, but is considered "Roma's mother", that having been expelled before Adam's sin that brought the consequent curse -namely, "by the sweat of your face will you eat bread"-, her descent was not affected by it. The idea of such replacement of the first woman is not found in any mythology except Jewish and Romany, and certainly not even in Christian tradition.
