A conservative Christian pastor says he’s launching a high-profile campaign to urge religious followers to buy up corporate stock in an attempt to stop mega-corporations from financing “ungodly ventures.”

The Seattle Post-Intelligencer reports that the Rev. Ken Hutcherson of Antioch Bible Church in Washington is convincing followers to start buying shares of Microsoft and begin the financial crusade.

Hutcherson is calling the organization the AGN Financial Network and is asking people to buy three shares of company stock and donate one to AGN – and to boycott Microsoft products.

AGN apparently plans to target other corporations after it has conquered Microsoft.
