Weâ€™re sure Bill Gates is shaking in his ten-thousand dollar alligator boots with this one: A Seattle anti-gay pastor has urged his followers to buy and then dump Microsoft stock in order to drive the stock price down. Why? Because his original plan to boycott all Microsoft merchandise (including almost every brand name you”d find at Target or Sears), was just a tad too unrealistic.
Rev. Ken Hutcherson, pastor of Antioch Bible Church in the Seattle suburb of Redmond, said the stock-dumping plan had been his strategy all along.
“You got to find out how you affect a company,” Hutcherson said, conceding that it would be hard to get people to shun products from companies that dominate the marketplace as Microsoft and Boeing do.
He wants supporters to buy one or two shares over the next few months, and then sell them May 1.
Over/under on how long it takes this guy to drive Microsoft into bankruptcy? Hmm, how about like, never. Do these bigots even have time anymore to actually, like pray and stuff?
