The Los Angeles Dodgers have canceled plans to honor a vulgar, anti-Catholic hate group.
The baseball team had announced earlier this month that they planned to honor “The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence.”
In case you aren’t familiar – they’re a group of queer and transgender nuns: Sister T’aint a Virgin, Sister Porn Again, you get the drift.
Among those complaining was Florida Sen. Marco Rubio. He wrote a letter to Baseball Commissioner Robert Manfred – demanding to know why they were honoring a group that mocks Christians.
The Republican senator alleged:
- “The ‘sisters’ are men who dress in lewd imitation of Roman Catholic nuns. The group’s motto, ‘go and sin some more,’ is a perversion of Jesus’s command to ‘go, and sin no more.’ The group’s ‘Easter’ ceremony features children’s programming followed by a drag show where adult performers dress in blasphemous imitation of Jesus and Mary. The group hosts pub crawls mocking the Stations of the Cross and even the Eucharist, the sacrament that unites more than one billion Catholics around the world.”
- “Do you believe that the Los Angeles Dodgers are being ‘inclusive and welcoming to everyone’ by giving an award to a group of gay and transgender drag performers that intentionally mocks and degrades Christians—and not only Christians, but nuns, who devote their lives to serving others?”
“The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence” are nothing more than a hate group.
“Major League Baseball, as a private organization in a free country, can give awards to whatever groups it chooses, no matter how loathsome,” Rubio wrote in the letter. “But baseball has always been tied to our nation’s values, at the heart of which is faith in God. It would be an outrage and a tragedy if the MLB, in pursuit of modern, secular, and indeed anti-religious “values,” rebuked that faith and the millions of believing fans who cherish the sport.Long story short – the Dodgers disinvited the anti-Catholic nuns.”
Long story short — the Dodgers disinvited the anti-Catholic freak show.
“We are now aware that our inclusion of one group in particular — The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence — in this year’s Pride Night has been the source of some controversy,” the squad said in a tweet. “Given the strong feelings of people who have been offended by the sisters’ inclusion in our evening, and in an effort not to distract from the great benefits that we have seen over the years of Pride Night, we are deciding to remove them from this year’s group of honorees.”
And whoever thought it was a good idea to smear good and decent Catholic baseball fans should be thrown out of the ballpark.
If nothing else it appears as though Major League Baseball has learned a very big lesson by watching the fallout from the Bud Light scandal.
And in doing so, the Dodgers dodged a major league boycott. At least for now.
There’s no doubt the baseball team has a month-long list of activities designed to celebrate the sexual proclivities of the LGBT community.
I fondly recall a time when folks went the ballpark to enjoy peanuts, popcorn and Cracker Jacks, not to have an agenda shoved down our throats.
