After Receiving Criticism, Dodgers Announce Christian Family Event

After receiving criticism for re-inviting the anti-Catholic “transgender” drag queen group “Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence,” the Los Angeles Dodgers announced the team would be hosting “Christian Faith and Family Day” in July 2023. Catholic Bishop Robert Barron from the Diocese of Winona-Rochester is not buying the team’s invitation.

“Not enough, @Dodgers,” Barron tweeted. “If you really want to reach out to Christians, don’t celebrate anti-Christian hate groups.”

President of Live Action Lila Rose also rejected the team’s offering. She said the invitation doesn’t make up for the team’s sponsoring of the anti-Catholic group, which has degraded and mocked nuns.

“To make real amends, apologize, cut ties with the LGBT hate group you awarded, and donate some of your significant revenue to real sisters who are serving the poor,” Rose said.

Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw, who is a Christian, expressed enthusiasm about the event.

The Federalist’s Mollie Hemmingway replied to the team’s announcement, saying, “Are you going to reuse the cross from the blasphemous pole dance performed by the anti-Catholic hate group the Dodgers are honoring in June?”

The “Christian Faith and Family Day” announcement came after Barron called for a boycott of the Dodgers.

Barron recently tweeted, “Friends, it’s hard to imagine anything more offensive than some of the behavior of the ‘Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence,’ which I think can only be described as an anti-Catholic hate group.”

The anti-Catholic group comprises adult men who dress as vulgar nuns. They openly objectify Jesus Christ and degrade Mary, Mother of God, while vilifying other crucial components of the Roman Catholic faith. The group also encourages “transgenderism.”

“Anti-Catholicism is the last acceptable prejudice in America, and we shouldn’t tolerate it,” Barron added.

According to The Daily Wire, “It’s good to see that Barron didn’t cave after the Dodgers’ embarrassing attempt to stave off any more damage to the team’s brand.”

The “Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence” was formed on Easter Sunday in 1979 and is known for having its members attend left-wing protests dressed in mock nun outfits to advocate for LGBTQ issues. The group claims it is “not anti-Catholic” and is “regularly called upon to minister to the sick, the dying, and the mourning.”
