NFL officials spotted a promotion of Fall Creek Baptist Church's "Super Bowl Bash" on the church Web site last week and overnighted a letter to the pastor demanding the party be canceled, the church said.
Newland said his church won't break the law.
"It just frustrates me that most of the places where crowds are going to gather to watch this game are going to be places that are filled with alcohol and other things that are inappropriate for children," Newland said. "We tried to provide an alternative to that and were shut down."
Other Indiana churches said they are deciding whether they should go through with their Super Bowl party plans, given the NFL's stance.
My thoughts? You can't love Jesus and the Colts, so either the church is a cult or they are misguided on their choice of football team.
Seriously, how about telling the members to invite their lost neighbors into their homes for the game? Or how about going to your lost neighbor's house if they invite you?
