The Invisible Life Ad

Black gays are feeling the crunch of invisibility closing in on them so they have trotted out yet another ad campaign reminding us that they are everywhere. I picked this one out of the four because, with its overt religious imagery, it reminds me of the Carlton Pearson drama which is re-unfolding. This ad left me somewhat speechless.
Something about it is just eerie. In several different ways.
And then again, maybe to the "inclusionists", it represents them accurately. I have no problems with gay people in church praying. That's a good thing, especially if they are seeking deliverance and change. But they really ought to leave prayer out of socio-political agendas.

So what do you think? The politics of prayer?
