Thank you for your input!
Your points/observations regarding the differences between
Doctrine and Dogma are well stated and well received.
I can easily agree with you on this, as long as the distinctions
are sharply and easily determined. However, if this is not the case
then I would choose (my own opinion) to remove the item in question
by declaring that it must be treated as a Dogma until proved
otherwise. Of course, because acceptance of even a Doctrine is
optional to the student (in all cases), then the distinction
between the two seems be of only an academisc interest??
In any case... I agree with your distinctions!
