- adj. Rare variant of heterodox.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
In some ways, I think, a product of homodoxy and heterodoxy, a homodoxic rejection of homodoxy, like a One True Law which states only, "There is only One True Law", and at the same time a heterodoxic reversal of heterodoxy, a turning of it upon itself: if everything is "true", then it is as "true" to say, "Nothing is true."
In general, I feel like I have a much better sense of what you are fighting, and from over here in my occasionally antidoxic gazebo in a small heterodoxic garden amidst the sprawl of the Jewish Quarter of New Jerusalem, I agree with a lot of what you say.
Right, says Duncanian, that's about as good a statement of heterodoxic monotheism as I can imagine.
There are, in fact, great arguments right now between homodoxic temples in argument with each other, homodoxic temples in argument with a loose coalition of heterodoxic temples, even arguments within temples between homodoxic and heterodoxic priests -- such as that in the Temple of the Anglicans -- as to the nature of the church.
But I guess that's a pragmatic judgement, as much as anything, about how difficult I think it is to get a new heterodoxic version of "God" to catch on where the homodoxic version is so widely used and regarded as entirely valid.
