The Los Angeles Dodgers have decided to snub and insult members of the Catholic faith in order to honor a group of drag queens whose acts routinely mock church members and their beliefs.

WND had reported only days ago that the team had withdrawn an invitation for the bawdy “Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence” drag queens, who encourage people to “Go and sin some more” in a mockery of Jesus words in the New Testament, to be honored by the team.

The Washington Times explained then the organization, in fact, “may have dodged a Bud Light moment after canceling plans to honor a bawdy collective of drag queens who dress up as nuns.”

That decision came after a multitude of Catholics, including many church leaders, objected to the performers’ mockery and denigration of their faith.

Now, however, a report from the Gateway Pundit reveals the Dodgers have succumbed to pressure from leftists to restore the invitation.

The report said even though the Dodgers “previously removed the vulgar, anti-Christian, Marxist group from their honoree list,” they’re back.

The team said, “After much thoughtful feedback from our diverse communities, honest conversations within the Los Angeles Dodgers organization and generous discussions with the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, the Los Angeles Dodgers would like to offer our sincerest apologies to the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, members of the LGBTQ+ community and their friends and families.”

The team said it was asking the “Sisters” to “take their place on the field at our 10th annual LGBTQ+ Pride Night on June 16th.”

The backlash was immediate.

The references to Bud Light cite that company’s decision to partner with a man who postures himself as a woman in a promotion, only to see sales of Bud Light crater across the nation – down by somewhere in the range of 30%. In fact, the corporation now is buying back expired tons of beer that never were sold.

Other social media comments:

“I hope your Catholic players decide they’re not playing for you anymore.”

“Trash organization.”

“Groomers.”

“Dodgers spitting in the eye of Catholics.”

“The Dodgers aren’t just hosting drag queens. The Dodgers are hosting anti Catholic bigots.”

“Post pictures of this group for your social media. The fans will love them!”

“Better hope the drag queens buy lots of baseball tickets and merch, because a lot of Christians are going to be done with you after this.”

A commentary at Twitchy said, “There ya’ go, Dodgers. Alienate your fans, they love it.”

Those objecting earlier had included CatholicVote, the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights and Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., wrote to Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred asking him about his promise that baseball would seek to be “apolitical.”

IMPORTANT NOTE: “Election denier!” “Science denier!” “Climate-change denier!” “Conspiracy theorist!” And then there’s “hate speech,” “fake news,” “disinformation,” “misinformation,” even something called “MALinformation.” A bizarre new lexicon has been conjured up by America’s elites, the SOLE PURPOSE of which is to discredit and ridicule – and if at all possible, CENSOR ENTIRELY – speech that doesn’t support their increasingly dark and deranged agenda. Tucker Carlson is just the latest.

In the greatest imaginable irony, the nation once boasting the most robust culture of freedom of speech and the press – undergirded by the strongest constitutional protections for those rights – is now ground zero for a total war on free expression.

How could this possibly happen in the United States of America? It’s all explained as never before in the sensational new issue of WND’s critically acclaimed WHISTLEBLOWER magazine, titled “THE ELITES’ ALL-OUT WAR ON FREE SPEECH.” WHISTLEBLOWER is available in both the popular print edition and a state-of-the-art digital version, either single issues or discounted annual subscriptions.
