Ever hear of the saying "elephant in the room"?

From Wikipedia "Elephant in the room" or Elephant in the living room" is an English metaphorical idiom for an obvious truth than is going unaddressed. The idiomatic expression also applies to an obvious problem or risk no one wants to discuss."

This is what the current status of the local churches is. A sort of dancing around the elephant in order to avoid the issues at hand. The "obvious problem or risk" is Witness Lee/Blended brothers could be wrong.

It's been a good 6-7 years since I had a dialog with a Puget Sound area elder. Regarding matters of the past even when provided documents, "feeling to honor the feeling of the Body" or any perceived misrepresentations is imagination.
Regardless how an elder, any brother, any sister, coworker, etc may feel in their conscience, they must operate LSM leadership is proper, unbiased, impartial, and above reproach just as Pi=3.14.........
To discuss LC problems, matters, issues, etc if it portrays LSM leadership unfavorably is to risk collapse of their religious and social environment as they know it.
