Every inch thus conceded will only be won back with much pain and suffering.

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.

Preach it! The time for idle "grace talk" is over for now. We need to guard our tongues well and give the enemy no footholds.

Nonsense. A thousand opinions and a hundred million words from libertines and God haters will not change the teaching of the Church one iota. Book it.
