This may be a stretch...
Is it somewhat hypocritical to use this popular NFL stadium to host a religious convention when American football is "frowned" upon, practically banned by the organization? Why is it so important to use FedEx/Redskins Stadium and it's location?
is the stadium owner aware of the type of organization they've leased their stadium to? no matter how orderly they file into and out of the area, no matter how well behaved, how little security needed...it's all part of a calculated goal (unbeknowkst to the majority of the members)..partly to impress the local authorities, governments etc. and to say they have done something special, that no one has never been done.
This same organization has another side. Do the owner of the stadium and others, know their stance on shunning, the LGBT community (and the other great points made earlier in this thread) etc. Do they know this organization's view on the very people they they hope to give a fine "witness" to? that they are pretty much dead in their eyes, for being or believing differently. How they feel superior?
Maybe somethings like this could be highlighted or touched on along with the 100 year anniversary and other points made in this thread.
Oh, and how timely the daily text for that Friday, the 1st day of the convention:
Friday, August 1 Do not hurry yourself in your spirit to become offended, for the taking of offense is what rests in the bosom of the stupid ones.—Eccl. 7:9. Many situations in life provoke negative reactions. While you are driving your automobile, for instance, suppose another car nearly collides with your vehicle. How will you react? You have read about episodes of road rage in which an individual became so angry that he attacked the other driver. As a Christian, however, you certainly would not want to do such a thing. How much better it would be to take a moment to analyze matters. Perhaps you were partly to blame for what took place because you were distracted in some way. Or the other driver may have had a mechanical problem with his car. The point of this scenario is that we can lessen anger, disappointment, and other negative emotions with understanding, open-mindedness, and a willingness to forgive. Do not take things so personally. w1211/15 5:9, 10 Examining the Scriptures—2014
