  Dogma - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Dogma (the plural is either dogmata or dogmas) is belief or doctrine held by a religion, ideology or any kind of organization to be authoritative and not to be disputed or doubted.
As a fundamental element of religion, the term "dogma" is assigned to those theological tenets which are considered to be well demonstrated, such that their proposed disputation or revision effectively means that a person no longer accepts the given religion as his or her own, or has entered into a period of personal doubt.
Dogmas are thought to be anathema to science and scientific analysis, though some small groups may argue that the scientific method itself is somewhat dogmatic.

Dogma eminently distinguishes itself from theological opinions, or beliefs, about which the faithful are free to disagree, for its absolute character; as a fundamental part of the religion, it cannot be disputed, revised or otherwise doubted, but has to be respected by faith.
The disagreement on dogmas is heresy and usually leads to the expulsion of the heretics from the religious group.
Dogma is also the name of a movie comedy, directed and with screenplay by Kevin Smith, starring amongst others George Carlin as a Cardinal, Alanis Morissette as God, and Ben Affleck and Matt Damon as a duo of fallen angels.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Dogma
But according to a long-standing usage a dogma is now understood to be a truth appertaining to faith or morals, revealed by God, transmitted from the Apostles in the Scriptures or by tradition, and proposed by the Church for the acceptance of the faithful.
It is a dogma of faith that the Church is infallible in defining these two classes of revealed truths; and the deliberate denial of one of these dogmas certainly involves the sin of heresy.
The theory of dogma which is here expounded depends for its acceptance on the doctrine of the infallible teaching office of the Church and of the Roman pontiff.

Back when I made "Dogma", I always maintained that another movie about religion wouldn't be forthcoming, as "Dogma" was the product of 28 years of religious and spiritual meditation, and I'd kinda shot my wad on the subject.

 Dogma Is Not a Dirty Word (This Rock: 0010)
While attacks on dogma from outside the Church are understandable (our Lord promised that we would witness such insanity), there are plenty of frowns and arched eyebrows to be found within Christendom when it comes to adhering to dogma.
The word dogma comes from the Greek word meaning "to seem." A dogma is a doctrine that has been expressly taught by the magisterium——either by conciliar or papal definition——to have been divinely revealed and contained in the Word of God, therefore requiring the belief of all Catholics.
When dogma comes across as dry and dull, it is usually due to poor teaching or lousy listening, but it is not a fault of the dogma.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Dogmatic Theology
It is evident that the ultimate purpose of these philosophical speculations cannot be to resolve dogma finally into mere natural truths, or to strip the mysteries of their supernatural character, but to explain the truths of faith, to provide for them a philosophical basis, to bring them nearer to the human mind.
while Catholic dogma declares that justification consists in a true blotting-out of sin and in an interior sanctification of the soul, Protestantism would have it to be merely an external cloaking of sins which still remain, and a mere imputation to the sinner of God's or Christ's justice.
The dogma of the totality of the Real Presence means that in each individual species the whole Christ, flesh and blood, body and soul Divinity and humanity, is really present.

Sadly, this appears to be a case of a filmmaker whose vision exceeds his grasp.
Like the previous Smith offerings, Dogma wants to make its audience laugh, but it also seeks to explore religious and cultural issues, and the two goals are often at cross-purposes.
Dogma is described as a comedic fantasy, but when it gets bogged down in the comic book-style elements, it grows tiresome.

 Dogma Movie Review by Anthony Leong
However, they discover a loophole in Catholic dogma in which by passing through the archway of a New Jersey cathedral they will be absolved of all their sins and thus be able to re-enter heaven.
As opposed to being a savage attack on the Church, "Dogma" is a film that indirectly celebrates faith by poking fun at some of the Church's institutions, while at the same time asking questions on some of the deeper issues of Catholic ideology.
However, in the case of "Dogma", it seems that Smith focused more on the religious bantering at the expense of keeping the audience interested-- the metaphysical and religious rhetoric overpower everything else in the film, and the result is very drawn-out and dry.

 Dogma (1999): Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, Linda Fiorentino, Chris Rock - PopMatters Film Review
It seems through a loophole in Catholic dogma, "plenary indulgence," the angels plan just might work, and if successful they will prove Gods word to be fallible, thereby nullifying all of human and earthly existence.
When prodded about their objection to the film, these protesters will merely respond that it is blasphemous (apparently tautology is all the rage in Catholicism today: it is blasphemy because it is blasphemous), making it abundantly clear that they have absolutely no idea what the film is about, or how the narrative plays itself out.
Dogma is, in the end, a direct affirmation of faith rather than its rejection, and in this respect the film's controversy merely repeats the mis-informed, or uncritical, public reactionism which has surrounded any film in recent memory which has tried to address sticky issues of Catholic faith.

 What is Dogma
   That a dogma is not a reasoned conclusion, but a direct, spontaneous, vital, factual, empirical concept may be established in a more effective way still by historical analysis and by a simple fact of consciousness left out of consideration in the current theories of knowledge.
It is the meaning of dogma when approached from the side of history and with no preconceived theories in mind.
  But dogmas being concepts, as we have said, and these concepts containing much implicit knowledge that needed articulation, it was impossible that they should have remained in their undeveloped original state for good and all.

It's too bad, because Dogma is ripe for near-classic status in its theological satire, which is hardly as blasphemous as the protests that greeted the movie would lead you to believe.
In some ways Dogma is a shaggy dog of a road movie--which hits a comic peak when Affleck and Fiorentino banter drunkenly on a train to New Jersey, not realizing they're mortal enemies--and segues into a comedy-action flick as the vengeful angels (who have a taste for blood) try to make their way into heaven.
The result has some great lines, but it's a muddle that turns into a mess; there have been cries of distress about the film's attack on organized religion, but no self-respecting church could seriously claim to be damaged by this extended skit.
