While conservatives are often stereotyped as ‘the dogmatic ones,’ it seems clear that both sides have their strongly held convictions and absolute views. For instance, one study reports that "Conservatives are indeed more dogmatic on the religious domain; but liberals are more dogmatic on the environmental domain” (see summary here).

Rather than determining who or which is ‘dogmatic,’ then, the interesting question becomes exploring about what issues or causes different individuals or communities feel dogmatic fervor or passion.
