LA Dodgers announce ‘Christian Faith and Family Day’ as team takes heavy fire over anti-Catholic trans nuns

The Los Angeles Dodgers are paying the price for spitting on the faith of Catholics by honoring a transgender group that specializes in vile blasphemy saturated with gay sex imagery and, in an effort to engage in damage control, the team said that it will be holding a “Christian Faith and Family Day” though it may be too little, too late for the storied Major League Baseball franchise to make amends for its unforced error.

After the Dodgers initially got it right by responding to anger from Catholics over its plans to recognize the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, a collection of “queer and trans nuns” with a “Community Hero Award” at an upcoming home game by disinviting the controversial group, the organization abruptly flip-flopped and issued a groveling apology while reinviting them to the June 16th Pride Night contest against the rival San Francisco Giants, a move that ignited a firestorm of outrage.

On Friday, the Dodgers announced that they would be bringing back the team’s night set aside for Christian families along with an after-game celebration at the July 30 contest against the Cincinnati Reds, featuring another tweet from star pitcher Clayton Kershaw, a devout Christian.

However, the “Christian Faith and Family Day” will likely be seen as forced and phony by some and it will do little to assuage the fury of Catholics over the team’s gross insult of Catholics by honoring the sacrilegious group.

If a sampling of the early reactions is any indication, the team’s announcement isn’t convincing Twitter users.

With Bud Light and Target already facing boycotts for their own promotion of transgenderism, a major Catholic organization put the Dodgers organization on notice that it plans to roll out a $1 million ad campaign against the team for its support of anti-Catholic bigotry.

“I represent the nation’s largest lay Catholic advocacy organization,” Brian Burch, who is the president of CatholicVote, wrote in a letter to Dodgers principal owner Mark Walter and CEO Stan Kasten. “We are supported by millions of devoted Catholics across America who believe that the 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.”

“We wrote to you last week with a reasonable ask: Please do not honor this anti-Catholic hate group,” Burch wrote in the letter which was first reported by Fox News Digital. “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.”

CatholicVote says that it is prepared to roll out the $1 billion advertising campaign to encourage Catholics to boycott the Dodgers, an organization that through its sanctioning of sick anti-Catholic sexual imagery and bigotry has taken a significant fall from grace from the days when it led the way for integration in baseball.

“Prior to the launch of this campaign, we are requesting yet another opportunity to speak by telephone or to meet in person with an appropriate representative so that you can better understand the extraordinary harm and hurt your decision has engendered,” Burch wrote in the letter, according to the outlet.

In a statement from CatholicVote reacting to the Dodgers’ Friday announcement, Burch said, “[email protected]’ announcement today is the equivalent of putting a Band-Aid on a gaping wound and in no way diminishes the harm and hurt caused by their plan to honor a vile anti-Catholic organization.”

“Creating a ‘faith and family’ event does not balance the decision to honor a perverted, fake ‘nun’ group that exists to mock the Catholic religion. In many ways, it emphasizes the contrast, and makes our case even stronger. It’s hard to interpret this announcement as anything other than a public relations stunt intended to blunt the widespread national backlash that is only growing stronger. The Dodgers have one path forward: apologize and stop honoring hateful anti-Catholic organizations,” the statement reads.
