You know, it just occurred to me that this card could be seen as gay people who feel isolated and cut off from society because of disapproval from organized religion (as symbolized by the stained-glass window).

I wish I could say I thought of all these things when designing the cards, but I must be honest and say that I didn't. There are a few cards, of which this card is one, where I deliberately set out to mimic the corresponding RWS card, but show two men instead of the traditional heterosexual couple (another example is the 10 of Cups), pretty much as a political statement.

EDITED TO ADD, in light of telcontar's comments about the link to the V Priest card, perhaps the two cards together could show religion which is accepting of gay people (V Priest) and religion which is disapproving and does much harm to gay people (5 of Coins).
