[June 16, 2023] For good-thinking folk, we can quickly figure out that inviting an anti-Catholic, anti-Christian group to their game will not sit well with fans. And worse, the LA Dodgers will “honor” a hate group for their ‘contributions to society.’ If you thought the Marketing VP of Bud Light was stupid by causing her brand to crash, then hold my beer.
The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence will appear at the LA Dodgers game tonight. According to the NY Post, detractors have called the Sisters a “blatantly perverted, sexual, and disgusting anti-Catholic hate group.” But no one in the LA Dodgers’ management seems to care. Tonight, the anti-Catholic groups will be given the Community Hero Award.
There is, however, someone in the organization that is showing some backbone. The Dodgers legend and future Hall of Famer Clayton Kershaw are among a few unhappy with their “teams bungling of their Pride Night.” Oh, now the LA Dodgers are launching their “Christian Faith and Family Day.” I wonder if the backlash to the Dodgers’ team has something to do with that. Just asking for a friend.
Recently, the country of Italy eliminated its Pride Month and replaced it with Pride in Family Month. Now that makes a lot more sense. Perhaps Americans are too privileged, too willfully blind to their actions, and too stupid to do the right thing.
“We have asked the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence to take their place on the field at our 10th annual LGBTQ+ Pride Night on June 16th. We are pleased to share that they have agreed to receive the gratitude of our collective communities for the lifesaving work that they have done tirelessly for decades.” – statement posted to the Dodgers’ Twitter
Honoring the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence tonight will cause the LA Dodgers some severe problems moving forward. Get your popcorn ready. Tonight and the next few days are going to be a whirlwind.
