The Super Bowl and Intellectual Property vs God

The NFL has a rule to limit TV screens to 55 inches at public viewings.  The league makes an exception for venues like bars and restaurants that regularly broadcast sporting events.  But churches that dare to let their parishioners watch the mayhem on the big screen are coming under fire.  Presumably, the league is not protecting intellectual property, but want parishioners to go to bars instead of churches on Sunday.
