Hutcherson (And Friends) Specify Gay Microsoft Attack

hutcherson-1.jpg
Nightmare Ken Hutcherson’s making good on his Microsoft threats. The footballer turned preacher man announced the first stage in his unholy crusade against the tech company’s gay-friendly policies. And, yes, he found his famous white friends:

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.”

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…”

It’s unclear what effect, if any, the initiative could have on the stock price. It would be difficult to influence company direction — just to gain a 1 percent stake in Microsoft, about 31 million people would each have to spend $104 to buy three shares.

We’re really not that worried.

      I’m not really worried either, but a list of the “country’s most influential Christian leaders” who joined this asshole (and I totally don’t mean that in a good way) would be Helpful. I’d be interested in any corelation between that list and a list of, say, Obama or Clinton or Huckabee or Romney supporters…

      AIDS may not be the plague of the century, it might just be Christianity, Islam, and Judaism…

      This is why stupid people never win. He should have stuck to football, because he apparently can’t read and sucks at math.

      Further, someone needs to investigate this jerk for fraud, embezzelment, and tax fraud. The idea of cheating people out of their money like this is criminal behavior and he should be stopped.

      Someone call the IRS, this guy is a tax-cheating heroin addict run-amok.
