Where it gets sticky is when the representatives of a party whose ideas are clearly outside of this concensus, is effectively part of the government. The Netherlands are perhaps a test case, at least within the historic EU core.
It's not a good look, because the far right can point to the disintegration of the concensus in order to push the limits, and to transgress.
In this respect, I think it is important that the judiciary sticks to established practise, and that even borderline cases are prosecuted vigorously.
It is rightly acknowledged that people of faith have no monopoly of virtue
