NFL Reverses Call On Church Parties -

NFL Reverses Call On Church Parties - (Registration required):
"The NFL, which found itself on the receiving end of protests and controversy after it objected to churches showing the Super Bowl on big-screen televisions, has reversed course and will now permit the viewings.

In a letter to Sen. Orrin G. Hatch (R-Utah), NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said the league would not object to 'live showings -- regardless of screen size -- of the Super Bowl' by religious organizations.

In response to questions from Hatch, Goodell said in the letter, dated Feb. 19, the NFL will implement the policy starting with next year's Super Bowl. ..."
A wise choice.

Glad to hear the policy was changed but I wonder if church's would be better off holding Sunday evening Worship services instead?
