Margaret Thatcher Nails It On The Head!
I've always admired former British prime minister (now Baroness) Margaret Thatcher. I found the following quote from her today, and it's delicious. What an ally she'd make in battling postmodernism and the Emergent Church!
Ah consensus … the process of abandoning all beliefs, principles, values and policies in search of something in which no one believes, but to which no one objects; the process of avoiding the very issues that have to be solved, merely because you cannot get agreement on the way ahead. What great cause would have been fought and won under the banner 'I stand for consensus'?
-- Margaret Thatcher
