For anyone who's ever written something of a private nature or asked clarification on certain beliefs have you ever had the unfortunate experience of the elders calling you in the back room or a sheperding call ?
The reason I bring this out is that newer brothers or sisters don't know that everytime you write the society the society sends a copy of your letter to your local cong. elders. So if you thought that you were discussing private confidential things, forget about it, you could be in very serious trouble.
I recall an experience in one of the cong. that I had attended one sister being in real hot water because she was trying to warn the society about some certain elders wayward ways. Next thing you know, the society sends a copy of her letter to the very same elders she's trying to warn about and next thing you know a judicial meeting was called in order. She never got disfellowship but it came close, she was told to mind her own business in no uncertain terms and to write the society again explaining her foolishness and apology in writing that letter.
To me it is quite a disturbing thing to know that the society would practice such a thing as to reveal your confidential matters. Could any of you please give a reason why they do this?
