Doxy – orthodoxy – heterodoxy – paradoxical

photo by frizztext – trying to learn English…
I’ll try to visualize a discussion featured by the daily e-mail of Anu Garg / / – there Hugh Rawson (hugh.rawson, Roxbury, Connecticut, wrote, introducing Bishop William Warburton (1697-1779): “Orthodoxy is my doxy; heterodoxy is another man’s doxy.” Donald Blair (dcblair Syracuse, New York, noticed: “DOXY = 1. A mistress or a promiscuous woman. 2. Opinion or doctrine. Doxy is the frequent abbreviation in Infectious Disease circles for the antibiotic doxycycline that is effective against some venereal diseases. Hence, one can be in the position of treating a doxy with doxy.” frizz-comment: I believe, for the Greek priest on the photo the maxime (Bob Marley) is guilty: No woman no cry. Steve Benko (steve.benko New York, added: This reminds me of a favorite Tom Swiftie: “‘You mean you’ve been carrying on with two mistresses at once?’ she asked paradoxically.”
P.S. by FrizzText:
I’m not orthodox; I’m an atheist; often I tried to understand religions or systems of morality; too often irony and skepticism draw me into fields of distance or even laughter. Photography often makes severe. Too serious. Only distance could help not to become the slave of a mood. It is good to come back to an easy going by wandering through the fields of word-definitions, etymology, history of words
