But there is yet another form of this hidden heresy, and, paradoxically, it can affect those who are proudest of their long-standing and unimpeachable orthodoxy; heresy in the form of indifference.
Light in tone, the novel [Murphy] is Beckett’s response to the therapeutic Orthodoxy that the patient should learn to engage with the larger world on the world’s terms.j. m. coetzee
Think of lab rats racing through a maze, when you watch the sub-intelligent, dual-panel 'dialogue' ... Each rat runs with a designated, neatly bifurcated (Republican or Democratic) political Orthodoxy. Each is a 'maze-bright' rat, and not the possessor and giver of any truth.ilana mercer
The difference between Orthodoxy or My-doxy and Heterodoxy orThy-doxy.thomas carlyle
The uniting of Orthodoxy with state absolutism came about on the soil of a non-belief in the Divineness of the earth, in the earthly future of mankind; Orthodoxy gave away the earth into the hands of the state because of its own non-belief in man and mankind, because of its nihilistic attitude towards the world. Orthodoxy does not believe in the religious ordering of human life upon the earth, and it compensates for its own hopeless pessimism by a call for the forceful ordering of it by state authority.nikolai berdyaev
When a heretic wishes to avoid martyrdom he speaks of “Orthodoxy, True and False” and demonstrates that the True is his heresy.George Bernard Shaw
Orthodoxy gave away the earth into the hands of the state because of its own non-belief in man and mankind , because of its nihilistic attitude towards the world . Orthodoxy does not believe in the religious ordering of human life upon the earth, and it compensates for its own hopeless pessimism by a call for the forceful ordering of it by state authority .
"Orthodoxy, my Lord," said Bishop Warburton, in a whisper, "Orthodoxy is my doxy, heterodoxy is another man's doxy."
Orthodoxy can be learnt from others; living faith must be a matter of personal experience .
Orthodoxy is the ability to say two and two make five when faith requires it.george orwell
Not long after his (Justinian) accession, he reaffirmed the penalties which previous Emperors had enacted against the pagans, and forbade all donations or legacies for the purpose of maintaining "Hellenic impiety,"...by making the profession of (Christian) Orthodoxy a necessary condition for public teaching Justinian accelerated the extinction of "Hellenism."...This event had a curious sequel. Some of the philosophers whose occupation was gone resolved to cast the dust of the Christian Empire from their feet and migrate.j. b. bury
…the truths of Christianity are constant, unchanging, and meant for all people, times, and places. But the methods by which truth is articulated and practiced must be culturally appropriated, and therefore constantly translated …if doctrine is constant and practice is constantly changing, the result is living Orthodoxy.mark driscoll
Truth indeed is sacred; but, as Pilate said, "What is truth?" Show us the undoubted infallible criterion of absolute truth, and we will hold it as a sacred inviolable thing. But in the absence of that infallible criterion, we have all an equal right to grope about in our search of it, and no body and no school nor clique must be allowed to set up a standard of Orthodoxy which shall bar the freedom of scientific inquiry.william stanley jevons
The heresies we should fear are those which can be confused with Orthodoxy.jorge luis borges
It was, as we know, not so much eradicated as replaced by a Communist Orthodoxy after 1949. And when this Orthodoxy began to lose its grip on the Chinese public after the death of Chairman Mao in 1976, Chinese officials struggled to find a new set of beliefs to justify their monopoly on power. The ideological hybrid that followed Maoism was "Socialism with Chinese Characteristics," a mixture of state capitalism with political authoritarianism.Ian Buruma
I have never had the least sympathy with the a priori reasons against Orthodoxy, and I have by nature and disposition the greatest possible antipathy to all the atheistic and infidel school. Nevertheless I know that I am, in spite of myself, exactly what the Christian would call, and, so far as I can see, is justified in calling, atheist and infidel.thomas henry huxley
The central fact for me is, I think, that the [role of the] intellectual... cannot be played without a sense of being someone whose place it is publicly to raise embarrassing questions, to confront Orthodoxy and dogma (rather than to produce them), to be someone who cannot easily be co-opted by governments or corporations, and whose raison d'etre is to represent all those people and issues that are routinely forgotten or swept under the rug.edward said
The word 'conservative' is used by the BBC as a portmanteau word of abuse for anyone whose views differ from the insufferable, smug, sanctimonious, naïve, guilt-ridden, wet, pink Orthodoxy of that sunset home of the third-rate minds of that third-rate decade, the nineteen-sixties.norman tebbit
The debate over cartoon depictions of the Prophet Muhammad is often framed as a clash between free speech and religious attitudes. But it is just as much a clash between conflicting religious attitudes, and the freedom at stake is not only freedom of expression but freedom of religion. For while Luther was surely engaging in offensive speech, he was also exercising a right of freedom of conscience, which included the right to dissent from Catholic Orthodoxy.
Anti-clericalism and non-belief have their bigots just as Orthodoxy does.
The most surprising and provocative occasions are those when Lewis himself departs from civil libertarian free speech Orthodoxy. He is not, it turns out, a fan of an unqualified federal shield law that would protect reporters from the obligation to reveal their anonymous sources in criminal cases.

If the Orthodoxy of Augustine had remained the teaching of the Church, the final establishment of Evolution would have come far earlier than it did, certainly during the eighteenth instead of the nineteenth century, and the bitter controversy over this truth of Nature would never have arisen.henry fairfield osborn
I repudiate (and I am sure that other biologists will agree) the idea that there is any such thing as "Darwinian Orthodoxy". ... The resultant neo-Darwinian or selectionist theory of evolution is no more an "Orthodoxy" than is the atomic theory of matter or the Mendelian theory of inheritance.
