I am afraid that what will eventually happen is a lot of people in will be frustrated and angry, and rightly so.
When my teen daughter was disfellowshipped after hours of the JC trying to force her to admit to something she was not even accused of, yes, fornication, we appealed. The JC lied, slandered our family to others, an appeal committee chairman lied to us, etc. Would you believe another elder, not on the JC gave the "warning talk" to the congo while the case was under appeal-just to get the gossip started. Then, my family was berated from the platform (not overtly, of course, but remarks that we knew applied to us) for appealing the decision to df. Other equally incredulous things were done. We wrote letter after letter to the great and powerful Oztower Society.
The letter we received back from the Society would make you want to run down the street screaming. It was a whitewash of what happened.
Don't think they are bound by rules. They make up the rules as they go along. The cards are all stacked in their favor.
They are MOSES and their sacred pronouncements must be accepted and abided by or YOU are the troublemaker!!
