homodoxian

homodoxian - n., someone who has the same opinions as oneself.


The fine folks at Wiktionary have relegated this one to an appendix of words found only in dictionaries, because they've found only one attested use of it in the wild, as it were. Conservation efforts are clearly needed, if we are to save this fine and flattering term from extinction. Homodoxian readers, go forth and use it well.
