professing a belief

Professing a belief in the dogma of an established religion does one thing – it makes you a member of the “in” group of believers of that religion.

Professing a belief in the dogma of an established social system does one thing – it makes you a member of the “in” group of believers in the social system.

To established yourself as a member of the “in” group you must adhere to the dogma of the professed religion/social system.

It is not required that you actually believe the dogma but under every circumstance you must pretend to believe the dogma.

If you do not successfully con-vince the other members of the religion/social system then you will become an outcast – cast off from the group of “true” believers.

The truth is that the “true” believers of the professed dogma can never be sure of the actual thoughts held toward the professed dogma of ANY of the members of the dogmatic “in”group.
