The SBC has recently shown troubling signs of relenting their stance against homosexualism. As you say, even the slightest concessions are damaging. Every inch thus conceded will only be won back with much pain and suffering.

This blurtation on the part of Francis I, grossly misinterpreted as it surely is, still constitutes far more than an inch. It will be walked back only with the greatest difficulty. But it must be walked back, lest the enemy be allowed to mold the words to fit his own schemes.

Very true, but you are far too optimistic even in this assessment. An inch conceded through a statement will establish a precedent that cannot be undone - a word spoken can never be unspoken. It will remain as an indelible foothold for some future anarchist to point to as a point of traction.

This is why the BSA will never be what it once was, even if they completely reverse the new unconscionable policy change made in May.
