beware of dogma

"Faith is what you’re willing to die for.
Dogma is what you’re willing to kill for.”
– Robert Shahan.

I stole this disturbing quote from Muthah today.
Why are we so hung up on the right or wrong way to believe?
Here is a definition from Wikipedia:
"dogma is the established belief or doctrine held by a religion,
ideology, or any kind of organization: it is authoritative
& not be be disputed, doubted or diverged from."
Who have I killed today by holding the leash of my dogma too tightly?

Dogma is the church with all the answers that won't allow any questions.
