June is “Pride Month.”
The marketing campaigns to push the LGBTQ lifestyle on the American people are already underway.
But one Catholic advocacy group is preparing to go head-to-head with the Los Angeles Dodgers over this controversial performance.
Los Angeles Dodgers reverse decision to cancel anti-Catholic hate group at upcoming Pride Night
The Dodgers made a major decision earlier this month when they canceled a performance by a group of drag queens known as the “Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence.” The group of men dress up as nuns and put on a performance that is an overt attack on the Catholic faith.
The cancellation was met by anger from LGBTQ activists, which resulted in LA Pride announcing an end to their partnership with the Dodgers. The group has a week-long celebration each year that ends with a parade. The parade had nearly 150,000 participants last year. The group also partners with the Dodgers on Pride Night.
LA Pride pushed back on the Dodgers and forced them to reverse course. They released a statement announcing that the team was “renewing their invite to the Sisters of the Perpetual Indulgence” and that the group would be performing at June’s Pride Night.
Now the Catholic Church is stepping up to see how much pressure it can put on the Dodgers.
Catholic group warns Dodgers that they have “millions” of supporters who will push back
CatholicVote, one of the largest Catholic advocacy groups in the nation, is looking to hit back hard against the Dodgers. The group is prepared to spend up to $1 million dollars to push Catholic parishioners to boycott the baseball team this summer.
The President of CatholicVote, Brian Burch, published an open letter to the Dodgers urging them to understand the position that they are in. He said his group is “supported by millions of devoted Catholics across America” who are willing to stand up for their beliefs.
He said people of the Catholic faith “believe that time-honored values of life, family, and freedom—which the Dodgers used to celebrate—are demonstrably good for America and worthy of respect, not ridicule.” Burch questioned the Dodgers’ claim that they are “listening to everyone.”
He also slammed the CEO of the team for ignoring his very sensible request.
Burch slams the Dodgers for showcasing “anti-Catholic bigotry”
Burch took aim at Dodgers executive Stan Kasten, saying that “we wrote to you last week with a reasonable request: Please do not honor this anti-Catholic hate group.” He said it’s obvious that this group exists to shame the Church and the Catholic faith.
“There is no place for anti-Catholic bigotry, mocking of religious sisters, or celebrating a perverse activist group whose identity is marked by blasphemy and mockery of Catholics,” Burch wrote. That is why he has allocated the money to embark on a nationwide campaign against the baseball team.
Even though he stopped short of offering Kasten an opportunity to reverse course, he did ask for one last discussion. He said he’d like “yet another opportunity to speak by telephone or to meet in person so that you can better understand the extraordinary harm and hurt your decision has engendered.”
