After attempting to yield to the “strong feelings of people who have been offended” by blasphemous queer and trans nuns, the Los Angeles Dodgers got a good taste of how strong the “Rainbow Mafia” is in America and quickly caved in its efforts to show respect for the Catholic community.
The Major League Baseball team tried to do the right thing and drop the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence from an upcoming Pride Night celebration — a tribute to the LGBTQ+ community based on their sexual preferences.
But the Dodgers would quickly be course-corrected when LA Pride announced it would no longer be participating in the event. The gates of hell would open up and the backlash from the intolerant left proved to be too much and the team caved.
And, oh, did the Dodgers grovel.
“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 MLB team said in a statement.

“We have asked the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence to take their place on the field at our 10th annual LGBTQ+ Pride Night on June 16th. We are pleased to share that they have agreed to receive the gratitude of our collective communities for the lifesaving work that they have done tirelessly for decades,” the organization added. “In the weeks ahead, we will continue to work with our LGBTQ+ partners to better educate ourselves, find ways to strengthen the ties that bind and use our platform to support all of our fans who make up the diversity of the Dodgers family.”
This being a far cry from the stance the Dodgers took last Wednesday, when it announced that they had dropped the depraved nuns who mock religion.
“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’ve seen over the years of Pride Night, we are deciding to remove them from this year’s group of honorees,” the Dodgers said then.
Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., a Catholic, wrote a letter earlier this month to MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred asking about being “inclusive” to Christians.
“I write to ask whether your League wants to be ‘inclusive and welcoming’ to Christians, and if so, why you are allowing an MLB team to honor a group that mocks Christians through diabolical parodies of our faith,” the senator wrote.
“The ‘sisters’ are men who dress in lewd imitation of Roman Catholic nuns,” Rubio added. “The group’s motto, ‘go and sin some more,’ is a perversion of Jesus’s command to ‘go, and sin no more.’ The group’s ‘Easter’ ceremony features children’s programming followed by a drag show where adult performers dress in blasphemous imitation of Jesus and Mary. The group hosts pub crawls mocking the Stations of the Cross and even the Eucharist, the sacrament that unites more than one billion Catholics around the world.”
But the Rainbow Mafia prevailed.
Rubio responded in a tweet Monday: “Shamefully, (but not surprisingly) the @dodgers have been bullied into apologizing to & ‘re-inviting’ a group of anti-catholic bigots. Today our great country is controlled by socio-political ruling elites who don’t just tolerate anti-Christian bigotry, they encourage & celebrate it.”
The Federalist’s Sean Davis took note of what is really at play here: “The demons who run the Rainbow Mafia are not hiding their hatred of Christianity. This kind of evil — the kind that targets your child for sexual mutilation and exploitation — cannot be negotiated with. It must be destroyed and eradicated.”

The team took a beating on social media for bending a knee to the intolerant left… here’s a quick sampling of other responses, as seen on Twitter:
Bend the knee or we will crush you.

That you were bullied by this vile, anti-Catholic hate group into groveling before them and celebrating their blasphemy and mocking your religious fans is truly reprehensible.

I cannot overstate what a betrayal it is for the Dodgers, of all organizations, to give a home to an anti-Catholic hate group.https://t.co/8otGFK9YG3

So now the @Dodgers and @MLB can’t say they were unaware of this group’s hostility toward Catholics and Christians. They just chose to side with them. Good to know. https://t.co/sGuaRsATbq
