We Knew Bill Gates Was the Antichrist, But Really. . .

Conservative pastor urges buying Microsoft stock to fight its gay rights efforts

A fundigelical in Redmond, WA has a strange crusade going:
A conservative Christian pastor plans to launch a high-profile campaign Tuesday urging religious followers to load up on Microsoft Corp. stock, in an attempt to force the company to "stop financing ungodly ventures."
Must be a Mac user.

I'm not sure how this would make Microsoft change its corporate policy, but I do see a profit motive for the fundie pastor:
Hutcherson, joined by some of the country's most influential Christian leaders, has created a new organization, AGN Financial Network, to finance the effort. The worldwide venture asks people to buy three shares of company stock and donate one to AGN. Its Web site tells visitors, "You have the power to change the world," and contains tips on how to open a brokerage account. Among the listed supporters are Richard Land of the Southern Baptist Convention and religious pundit Gary Bauer. (emphasis added)
