“Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.
(The mendicants asked) What are the two [types of persons]?
(The Lord Buddha responded) The malicious, or the inwardly angry, and the one with (blind) faith or the one who holds things incorrectly.
Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.”

It might be interesting to compare and contrast with Ajahn Amaro's account of a tudong he took many years ago when he walked from Chithurst to Harnham Vihara. The account was published under the title " The Long Road North " well worth seeking out.
The going for refuge is the door of entrance to the teachings of the Buddha.
