The LA Dodgers are facing well-deserved heat for honoring a group of transgender activists who dress as satanic nuns with the team's “Community Hero Award” at an upcoming "Pride" event. And yes, this is a real thing.
Well, the nuns aren't real. They’re transgender “women” – i.e., disturbed biological men – who call themselves the “Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence,” a group of "queer and trans nuns” who show up to events in mock Catholic attire to stump for abortion and all manner of LGBTQ debauchery. Group members, whose official motto is “go and sin some more,” often sport satanic-looking drag makeup, including face paint resembling flames.
The group regularly hosts community Easter events in which they dress as lewd caricatures of Jesus and Mary and perform a striptease atop a cross before holding a competition to crown the "hunkiest Jesus." Members often go by raunchy stage names like “Sister T’aint A Virgin,” and once tricked a Catholic archbishop into letting them participate in Holy Communion as a publicity stunt.
But apparently, mocking Catholics and perverting Scripture in the name of promoting heinous evil is enough to earn you a commendation from an official MLB team in front of God and anyone else who might be rightly offended. The Dodgers will present the group with their “hero” award during the team’s Pride Night” celebration before their home game on June 16, commending the anti-Catholic hate group for “their countless hours of community service, ministry, and outreach to those on the edges, in addition to promoting human rights and respect for diversity and spiritual enlightenment,” according to the MLB’s official website.
“The Dodgers have always championed diversity and inclusion as core values, and we're honored to showcase our dedication to fostering an inclusive environment both on and off the field during our tenth annual LGBTQ+ Pride Night,” said Erik Braverman, Senior Vice President of Marketing, Communications, Community Relations, and Broadcasting.
Suffice it to say, that announcement didn’t exactly get a fond reception.
Bill Donohue with the Catholic League slammed the MLB for allowing such a gross mockery of deeply held faith to be celebrated on their national platform.
“These homosexual bigots are known for simulating sodomy while dressed as nuns. They like to feature a ‘Condom Savior Mass,’ one that describes how the ‘Latex Host is the flesh for the life of the world.’ The ‘Sisters’ go by names such as ‘Sister Homo Fellatio’ and ‘Sister Joyous Reserectum,’” he pointed out.
“Two years ago, [MLB Commissioner Rob] Manfred was so angered about alleged voter irregularities in Georgia that he moved the All Star Game to Denver. Let’s see how he reacts when Catholics are targeted,” Donohue then challenged.
Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio sent a letter to Commissioner Manfred asking whether the League is “inclusive and welcoming” to Christians given the Dodgers bestowing an award to a group whose mission is to mock people of faith.
“Recently, you stated that Major League Baseball needs to ‘make decisions that are as inclusive and welcoming to everyone as possible, and keep us as apolitical as possible.’ I write to ask whether your League wants to be “inclusive and welcoming” to Christians, and if so, why you are allowing an MLB team to honor a group that mocks Christians through diabolical parodies of our faith,” Rubio wrote.
“Major League Baseball, as a private organization in a free country, can give awards to whatever groups it chooses, no matter how loathsome. 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,” he added.
it seems that if you're a person of faith who likes beer and baseball, you might have a few decisions to make.
