Harry Lennix running Kickstarter project for Shakespeare's Henry IV set in Los Angeles. They believe this is the first time on film where Shakespeare has been set in a world representative of the Black Experience.

I don't want anyone to pray for me because I give them money. That's a little too medieval; and, well, weird. Or am I missing something? Probably, I usually am. But I certainly do want to see this film so I'll be giving pledging some serious consideration as it looks like a great project.
I don't mind the prayer even though it isn't my doctrine. I'm still going to support since I think it is a good project.
I find the rewards kind of odd as well, even if the prayers are configured to be as non-denominational as possible, since I'm agnostic and you have to get pretty vague to match beliefs with me when it comes to the Creator.

Still, I really like the idea of the project and I hope it succeds!
They must've filmed this sometime last year because in the video Harry Lennix says Heavy D has a role in it. Heavy D passed away last November.
I'm torn. More Shakespeare is good.

Praying is bad. Praying for prosperity is double bad. Paying to be prayed for is super bad (and not in a good way).

It makes me wonder who this is aimed at?
