Church not good but home okay?

Let me see if I get this right.  I can't erect a large screen have a pot lunch meal and show the NFL games at a church.  Yet, I can erect a large screen in my house serve some good food and invite my friends over and that's okay.  I'm sorry but that is ecclestical discrimnation.  If I can do it in my home and it be okay but not in a church the NFL has just become the 21st Century "Anti-Christ."  Considering the millions that the NFL takes in from conservative evangelicals it would appear they should reconsider their position.........
