Twisted ‘Sisters’ Reap the Nothingness

Having defiled themselves by honoring an anti-Catholic hate group during their “Pride” event, the Dodgers did their best to make sure no one would see it.

If a woke baseball team honors a blasphemous gang of LGBTQ narcissists and no one shows up to watch it, did it really happen?

That’s the metaphysical question we wrestled with for a fleeting instant on Friday night, when we learned of the extraordinary lengths that the Los Angeles Dodgers had gone to in order to minimize the damage of their cowardly and ill-advised appeasement of an obscene fringe group of anti-Catholic dragsters known as the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence.

The “sisters,” you see, had been told by the Dodgers in May that they’d be recognized at the ball club’s LGBTQ+ Pride Night celebration. Outrage ensued, and the Dodgers rescinded their invitation via Twitter: “We are now aware that our inclusion of one group in particular — The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence — in this year’s Pride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. Given the strong feelings of people who have been offended by the sisters’ inclusion … we are deciding to remove them from this year’s group of honorees.”

But then the Dodgers, having already flipped and flopped, ultimately cowered not to the masses but to the Tyranny of the Hysterical Few: “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.”

In short, the ball club of Branch Rickey and Jackie Robinson defiled itself.

Encouragingly, though, two Dodgers players and one Washington Nationals player — pitchers Trevor Williams, Clayton Kershaw, and Blake Treinen — made their voices heard. As our Emmy Griffin noted earlier this month: “Home runs for all three brave pitchers. Standing up against this blatant disrespect for Christianity in general, Catholicism in particular, and the family-friendly safe havens that sports should be is countercultural in such a refreshing way.”

If only they’d numbered more than three.

In addition, as The Federalist reports, “CatholicVote, a Wisconsin-based non-profit, launched a seven-figure ad campaign prior to the Pride Night event.”

Florida Senator Marco Rubio also got into the act, rightly pointing out that hate has no place in our national pastime. “We will not stand for these attacks on our faith,” he wrote in an op-ed. “Everyone in Southern California should understand that the Dodgers they knew and loved sacrificed their legacy and honor on the altar of anti-Catholic hate.”

In any case, it didn’t go well for the Rainbow Mafia and its anti-Catholic hitmen. As NBC’s Ari Blaff reports: “Thousands of people gathered outside Dodger Stadium to protest the inclusion of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence in a Pride Event celebration before Friday night’s game. … Organized by Catholics for Catholics, the demonstrators on Friday were seen carrying placards with messages, including ‘Stop Anti-Catholic Hate,’ ‘Save Our Children,’ and ‘Bud Light the Dodgers.’” Take a look:

But the pro-Christian, pro-Catholic, pro-decency crowd that filled the parking lot there in Chavez Ravine on Friday afternoon was only half the story. As this heartwarming video from Turning Point USA’s Savanah Hernandez shows, the Dodgers’ 56,000-seat stadium was nearly empty during the Dodgers’ pre-, pre-, pre-, pre-game public-address announcement honoring the twisted “sisters” “for their outstanding service to the LGBTQ+ community.”

The video doesn’t lie. It was crickets and tumbleweeds, but with a smattering of enthusiastic boo birds. Oh, and it was followed by a Dodgers loss in 11 innings to the rival Giants, who went on to sweep the series and supplant the Dodgers in second place in the NL West. And it couldn’t have happened to a better bunch of bigots.
