I'm impressed with how quickly the community is reacting to this horrible incident, but I wonder if we're going about this correctly.
Maybe it's not right to bombard the man's personal cell phone with angry calls. It's not that I'm not driven to action by what happened to Jason, but I wonder if such a personal intrusion goes along with the message of nonviolence that is central to Soulforce. I knwo I would certainly consider it violent if someone was to use my cell phone to contact me about issues I was trying to avoid. I know we need him to hear us, but I think the best way is through his secretary. I remember the webpage we have dedicated to not hating our adversaries
and I think this is starting to drift into a bad territory. I think everyone's very passionate about Jason's impossibly unreasonable expulsion and maybe our judgement is being clouded by emotions.
try to remember that this president is a person just like you and he's not evil or bad, just acting on behalf of misinformation. He doesn't deserve to be treated any worse than one would treat Jason - we merely need to help provide him with our information about homosexuality and help him to understand where we are coming from so that he might make a different decision.
