Separation of Church and Football


ChristianPost.com: “Churches Wary of NFL Policy Sack Super Bowl Parties“:

After the National Football League gave warning last year to an Indianapolis church not to hold a Super Bowl viewing party, churches across the country are canceling their annual Super Bowl fellowships in fear of getting flagged for copyright violations.
North River Community Church in Pembroke, Mass., had scheduled a big gathering this Sunday with the big game on a giant video screen in the congregation’s worship center. But the church’s pastor, the Rev. Paul Atwater, called it off after he looked over the NFL’s policies and news reports of churches that were threatened with legal action for planning similar showings last year, according to The Daily News Tribune.

UPDATE: Trademark Lawyer and former tight end for the 72 Dolphins Craig Mende writes for Forbes on THE BIG GAME. Warning: NSFW picture of Craig.
