There was not much reverence in the movie 'Dogma' to any kind of religion, but there were a few more gentle points where the story revealed the compassion the writer has for these characters. One of the angels in the film, oddly enough named 'Loki', is supposed to be the Angel of Death, who loosely based on Michael, is serving as God's Wrath. While he is forced to cut down the humans who have incurred holy wrath, he begins to feel sorry for them. He throws down his sword and refuses to kill any more mortals. (He's drunk and he flips off the boss, but that's not what struck me...) What struck me was this being who was forced to destroy these humans he loved, and being a servant without free will, he was cursed to do this for eternity.
