Praise and Prayer

Pray: Mennonite Mutual Aid is leading a group of eight companies, representing 1.6 million shares of AT&T stock, in an attempt to sway the communications giant to get out of the porn business. "We think this is going down a road that none of us knows what's on the other side," said Mark Regier, a spokesman for the Mennonites. Together, the eight firms filed for a shareholder resolution urging AT&T to repudiate its ties to the Hot Network, which provides pornographic programming. If the investment groups are successful, their resolution will go to the holders of all 3.7 billion shares of AT&T stock.
