Why do people say that gingers (redheads) steal souls?

I don't steal souls...I merely borrow them ;)

The rumor is that every freckle a redhead has is a soul that has been stolen. However, this is not true.

Because we are just that good!.. No, honestly I have never heard that and that is just another thing to keep people from living together. Anything that sets out to separate others based on their looks is a lie.

There was a time in our history when redheads were hung as they were thought to be witches. It is only because this color was so rare, less common than blonde or brown.

Most likely stems from the fact that the Scots, with their high percentage of red haired people, are descended from the Celts, notoriously violent warriors. :D http://christophreilly.hubpages.com/hub/Redheads-Myths--Legends--and-Famous-Red-Hair

It's not that they steal souls. It's that they have no soul.
