Explanation

For the first blank, the opposite-direction trigger while and the contrast between the clues modernist and traditional require that the blank mean something like criticize. Venerate and celebrate do not mean criticize, but deride does.

For the second blank, the clue traditional as well as the completed first blank require that the second blank mean something like radical.
Dogmatic and axiomatic do not mean radical, but heretical does.

For the third blank, the opposite direction trigger while and the clue inherently related require that the blank mean something like distinct. Logical and intertwined do not mean distinct, but separate does.
Thus, select deride, heretical, and separate.

Hence option B, F and G are correct!
