Blake Treinen is the latest Dodgers player to denounce the invitation, then disinvitation, then invitation again of prominent anti-Catholic hate group, the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, at the team’s Pride Night.
“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,” Treinen said via Twitter.
Clayton Kershaw, pitcher for the Dodgers, also announced last Friday that the team will host a Christian Faith and Family Day for the first time since 2019.
Kershaw admitted in an interview with the L.A. Times that the Dodgers expedited the announcement of Christian Faith and Family Day “in response to the highlighting of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence.”
The Sisters of Perpetual indulgence “is a troupe of men who dress in lewd costumes mimicking the habits of nuns and performing acts of sacrilege against Catholic symbols and sacraments,” reports CatholicVote. In addition to pole dancing on crucifixes and advocating for abortion, their outreach efforts include the promulgation of radical queer ideology and attempts to dismantle traditional values within communities.
The players’ messages and the reinstatement of Christian Faith and Family Day come amid a wave of corporate losses at the hands of promoting trans ideology, with companies like Bud Light and Target suffering multi-million-dollar losses after advertising pro-trans influencers and products for adults and children.
Just as Target pulled certain pride-themed items, some designed by Satanist designer Abprallen, the Dodgers’ reinstatement of a Christian day appears to be an attempt at damage control before they fall victim to the Woke Reaper knocking on corporations’ doors.
The sentiments expressed by Kershaw and Treinen transcend their team as pitcher for the Washington Nationals Trevor Williams posted a statement on Twitter.
“To invite and honor a group that makes a blatant and deeply offensive mockery of my religion, and 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,” he said.
Catholic Athletes for Christ, an organization beloved by the late Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully, also condemned the team’s decision to honor the hate group.
Dodgers manager Dave Roberts, who has stated that his relationship with Christ is “the most important thing in [his] life,” has made no public statement against the anti-Catholic hate group.
