Dogma

Corrected entry: At the end, he clearly fires about 200 bullets out of a half-full Mac 10 clip, which would have been approx. 15 rounds. A Mac10 fires around 15 rounds per second, yet he holds that trigger down for about 10 seconds.

Correction: This was the gun that appeared in Azrael's hand in the bar. Guns summoned into existence by demons can safely be presumed magical.

Corrected entry: When God destroys Bartleby she goes out into the street to clean up the mess that he made. When she gets there she is standing right next to Loki, but look closely at Loki's legs - when the camera moves up to God you can see Loki's legs moving out of the way.

Correction: [She IS God. She probably moved them herself, maybe to get them in a better spot for the removal.].

Corrected entry: According to "official" mythology Loki and Azrael should swap names. In Scandinavian mythology Loki is the god of mischief, the instigator of conflicts. In Muslim belief Azrael is one of the archangels and, more specifically, the angel of death. In Jewish tradition Azrael is the embodiment of evil but, as the angel of death, does God's work.

Correction: This is a work of fiction. Kevin Smith can name his characters whatever he wants. He was not refering to those existing characters.

Continuity mistake: The writing on the second book from the left on the right of Bethany's bed changes colours in different scenes.

Metatron: Any documented occasion where some yahoo claims God has spoken to them, they're speaking of me. Or they're talking to themselves.

Trivia: Kevin Smith has a love of Spielberg movies and makes reference to them in a number of his movies. In the scene where Silent Bob throws the pair off the train he remarks to a bewildered onlooker 'no ticket'. This is actually the same as in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, where Harrison Ford throws the German guard off the zeppelin and remarks the same line to a bewildered looking couple.

Question: Metatron tells Bethany that Bartleby and Loki have been clued into a loophole in catholic dogma that would allow them back into heaven. What does he mean by "catholic dogma"?

Answer: Roman Catholic is the oldest of the Christian Churches, and the one from which all others (Eastern Orthodox and Protestant) have separated. Dogma is the core tenets of a given religion, the ideas that make up that religion and which can never be changed, because to do so would destroy the entire belief system (contrasted with doctrine, common beliefs and interpretations held by a church that can change over time). So Catholic dogma is the specific, basic beliefs of the Catholic Church, in this case, "God is infallible."

Yes, the Orthodox Church did separate, but you're false in that the Roman Catholic Church is the oldest of the Christian churches. Historically, the Greek Orthodox Church is the oldest.

Answer: There is a difference between Catholic with a capital c and catholic with a small c. With a capital c it is in reference to the catholic church. With a small c it is in reference to the christian faith. For example in the protestant apostles creed it says I believe in the holy catholic church meaning the christian faith.
