Following a slew of controversy, the Los Angeles Dodgers have pulled an anti-Catholic drag queen group from their lineup of honored “Pride Night” guests – but it’s not because the group has a storied history of dressing as satanic nuns and hosting raunchy, blasphemous performances mocking Christianity.
It’s because Christians had “strong feelings.”
“This year, as part of a full night of programming, we invited a number of groups to join us. 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 Dodgers said in a statement on social media.
Which might just be the understatement of the year.
As I reported for MRCTV earlier on Wednesday, the “Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence” are a group of “queer and trans nuns” – i.e., disturbed biological men 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 seeing nothing wrong with honoring a group whose entire purpose is to push sexual filth while denigrating a faith deeply held by millions of Americans, the Dodgers had planned to present the group with their “Community 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.
Suffice it to say, that announcement didn’t exactly get a fond reception. The announcement sparked an uproar among Christians, including notable Catholic leaders and politicians who blasted the team and Major League Baseball for promoting an anti-Christian hate group on its national platform. Within hours, the team had walked back their invitation to the group – but stopped short of admitting they were wrong to offer it in the first place.
“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," the team wrote.
Of course, the better and far more accurate statement would have been, “Some idiot on our management team thought it would be great to give an award to a bunch of vile, mentally ill, heretical perverts at a baseball game, which last we checked had nothing to do with promoting anyone’s sexual preferences or gender confusion. So we’re nixing that. Sorry for getting this one so wrong and please don't stop giving us money.”
But alas, the woke crowd can’t admit stepping in a giant pile of crap even when it’s still stuck to their stripper heel. Instead, the onus is on "offended" Christians and their "strong feelings" for “distracting” from the awesomeness of gay pride by not wanting crossdressing fake-nuns in prosthetic boobs being celebrated for mocking religious people and defiling their faith.
Or maybe the Dodgers just massively screwed up, and the millions of Christian Americans who they just threw under the bus shouldn’t take this walkback any more seriously than “transgenderism” itself.
