Even from a young age, I quickly learned that in the LC, a 'fellowship' meeting is where the masses are made aware of a pre-made decision.

I must admit that I was always troubled by the fact that there was no such opportunity for the rank and file to provide their own input. Eventually, I stopped going to such 'fellowship' meetings all together. It was a complete waste of time, and I couldn't see the need for a meeting if a decision was made already. I supposed they wanted to make it seem like there was some mutuality, but it's not hard to see what was really going on.

We know now that this is a practice that has happened in the LC right from the very get-go. Apparently, it's a practice that stems from leaders like Benson who were unable to let anyone else be involved in the decision making process.
