Church Fliers- do they get an "Amen"?

So have you seen these faux photoshopped pics of Jay Z, Beyonce, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West that are all over Facebook and Twitter?

After snickering a bit, I realized I don't like the actual fliers and pics on which they are based. You know, there is a very staged and awkwardly-posed picture of the pastor/elder/bishop and the first lady, the two dressed in complementary suits and plastered smiles.

The language is part boisterous invitation and part overly formal silliness (like in the picture above, using "ante meridiem" as opposed to "A.M.").

I started seeing these fliers at the turn of the millennium. Maybe the saints started buying color printers and Windows Paint or something, I don't know.

What do you think?

Not sure of the meaning - if there's a meaning besides someone took the time to garner a quick laugh or two.

On another note, Kanye's new single New God Flow left me taken aback, considering his past material speaking upon a self-described "new gospel."
