I will not and would not call the president's personal cell phone. I would call his office phone. Why? The decision we are complaining about was a business/professional decision. We are addressing him in his capacity as university president, not as (I forget his name), So n So in his personal life.
While one phone call might sound like it is not intrusive, have you counted how many active Soulforce members are listed on this site? Close to 300. IF each of us placed one call to his cell phone for a minute or two, that would be 300 phone calls. If every caller left a 2 minute message that would be 600 minutes of call time. And 300 calls to a personal phone number is way over the top. If it were me getting those calls, I would be furious at you for calling before even hearing a single word you say.
Why the heck not direct all calls through the Secretary? Say not a single calls get sthru to the prez. Secretary still says, "You received 300 phone calls today complaining about Jason's expulsion from school." Secretary can't get any other work done b/c of the volume of phone calls, office slows down for everything the prez wants done. He gets the message that there is significant dissent that way. Not through intrusion into his personal life.
I know I've just disagreed with several of you who I love to pieces. Hugs atcha.
