it’s good to know our congress critters are working hard on such pressing matters like this…

bill would end separation of church & super bowlfrom washington post: Sen. Arlen Specter, the top Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee, introduced a bill (S. 2591) this week that would allow houses of worship to show football games on big-screen televisions.

The legislation was among a flurry of action taken this week as the result of an article Friday in The Washington Post reporting that churches were canceling Super Bowl parties out of fear of lawsuits from the NFL if they showed the game on jumbo TV screens…

Under Specter’s legislation, religious organizations that wish to show professional football games would be declared exempt.
