Identity PoliticsEd Dobson September/October 2000 "If they are but another voice in the crowd, their power comes only from the ability to shout down the others--and they shall never prevail, because after they shout them down, the others will assemble a larger crowd next time and shout them down. And the contest becomes a never-ending struggle for what is presumed to be "power" but is not. . . .
"The church has a source of authority and standards beyond politics, beyond the tides of passing fashion. It bears witness to a transcendent vision."
--Ed Dobson, Blinded by Might, p. 148
