Pitchers Blake Treinen from the Los Angeles Dodgers and Trevor Williams from the Washington Nationals stood up for Christianity and denounced the Dodgers’ egregious decision to honor the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence at their Pride Night. 

Both players took to Twitter to let everyone, including the Dodgers, know what they think. 

“I am disappointed to see the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence being honored as heroes at Dodger Stadium,” Treinen stated. “Many of their performances are blasphemous, and their work only displays hate and mockery of Catholics and the Christian faith.

The fans do not want propaganda or politics forced on them,” Treinen continued. “The debacle with Bud Light and Target should be a warning to companies and professional sports to stay true to their brand and leave the propaganda and politics off the field.”

Standing for Christian values in today’s society takes courage, but Treinen rightfully criticizing the organization he represents on behalf of his faith requires a backbone like no other. He wasn’t alone in his efforts either. 

Nationals pitcher Trevor Williams tweeted:

As a devout Catholic, I am deeply troubled by the Dodgers’ decision to re-invite and honor the group ‘The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence’ at their Pride Night this year.[...]

To invite and honor a group that makes a blatant and deeply offensive mockery of my religion, and the religion of over 4 million people in Los Angeles county alone, undermines the values of respect and inclusivity that should be upheld by any organization.


After watching Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Anthony Bass disappointing apology for sharing a video endorsing the boycotts for Target and Bud Light on behalf of the Christian faith, it’s refreshing to see Christians who are unapologetic in their stance. Hopefully, this encourages more Christians to remain steadfast in their convictions and publicly defend their faith.
