How long a season?

I'm offering this quote from Matt Kennedy's recent reflection entitled "Embracing Pelagius" as food for thought on just how long those advocating that we "refrain for a season" think that season will have to be in order to make a dent in the divide between those who oppose the full inclusion of all the baptized into the Body of Christ and those who embrace it.

"... were a conclusive study demonstrating the inherent nature of homosexual desire to be published tomorrow, it would have absolutely no effect on the orthodox argument. Rather, in some sense, the orthodox argument would be strengthened because biblical faith and classic Christian doctrine assumes that human nature is itself fallen."
