Heretics call into question truths which are regarded as of great importance by the group which fully affirms the questioned truths. Heretics affirm beliefs/convictions/rituals which are rejected by the norm setting group. Idolaters worship false gods of various forms; not the One True God. What is the nature of the connection/relationship between heretics and idolaters? That of course depends upon who defines who the heretics are, and who the idolaters are! If those who are making the distinctions are incoherent and/or lack integrity --- it is foolish to expect to find any clear pattern regarding the nature of the connection/relationships between HERETICS and IDOLATERS. If those who are making the distinctions are coherent and demonstrate integrity it may be that: 1. Idolaters/heretics refuse to acknowledge truths which are complementary to the idolaters/heretics' own exclusively affirmed partial truths. 2. Idolaters/heretics refuse to tolerate integ- rative paradoxes which affirm what the idolaters/heretics regard as contradictory affirmations --- but which entail complementary partial truths. 3. Idolaters/heretics refuse to cooperate with or work collaboratively with complementary kinds of "different" people --- who affirm truths which are complementary to what the original idolaters/ heretics affirm.
