and I'm confident that you don't see any irony in this - but I won't be dogmatic about it
You should work through that, actually (if not publicly).
I think you'll find the irony you see is an internal rather than actual thing.
But by all means, if you're so inclined, do go through that openly in here. You may also find there's less of a "Thing" here than you're probably thinking (i.e. the problem, if there is one, is the dogmatism, not necessarily the belief).
