LA Dodgers superstar disagreed with team’s honoring of anti-Catholic trans nuns

One prominent member of the Los Angeles Dodgers wasn’t thrilled with his employer’s call to honor a controversial group of drag queen nuns despite its blasphemous anti-Catholic antics and superstar pitcher Clayton Kershaw’s disagreement with the move was a factor in the sortied Major League Baseball franchise bringing back its Christian Faith and Family Day this summer.

The Dodgers had at first acknowledged the justified anger over the organization’s recognition of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, a collection of “queer and trans nuns” who would receive a “Community Hero Award” at an upcoming home game by disinviting the group only to flip-flop under intense pressure from LGBTQ+ activists and not only reinvite them but to also issue a groveling apology in a move akin to spitting on the faith of Catholics.

Kershaw, a devout Christian, and three-time Cy Young Award winner shared his thoughts with the Los Angeles Times and revealed that he was upset over the sacrilegious trans nuns being featured before the June 16th Pride Night contest against longtime rival the San Francisco Giants. He approached the team about restarting the night to recognize religious families which had been preempted by the COVID crisis.

“I think we were always going to do Christian Faith Day this year, but I think the timing of our announcement was sped up,” Kershaw said. “Picking a date and doing those different things was part of it as well. Yes, it was in response to the highlighting of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence [by the Dodgers],” he told the paper in a Monday interview at Dodgers Stadium.

Last Friday, the 35-year-old southpaw and 9-time MLB All-Star took to Twitter to personally announce the return of a night for good, clean family fun and a healthy respect for God.

“I don’t agree with making fun of other people’s religions,” Kershaw told the paper. “It has nothing to do with anything other than that. I just don’t think that, no matter what religion you are, you should make fun of somebody else’s religion. So, that’s something that I definitely don’t agree with.”

“As a team between my wife and I and different people that I respect, we talked a lot about the right response to this,” he added said. “It’s never an easy thing, because it felt like it elicited a response.”

The likely future Hall of Famer told the outlet that he “did the best I could to try and understand what they stood for,” but acknowledged that it was “tough” to see examples of the group’s disrespect for Christianity.

“For us, we felt like the best thing to do in response was, instead of maybe making a statement condemning or anything like that, would be just to instead try to show what we do support, as opposed to maybe what we don’t,” he said. “And that was Jesus. So to make Christian Faith Day our response is what we felt like was the best decision.”

“This has nothing to do with the LGBTQ community or pride or anything like that,” Kershaw said. “This is simply a group that was making fun of a religion, that I don’t agree with.”

“As a follower of Christ, we’re supposed to love everybody well,” he added. “And I think that means being able to be at a lot of different places and be able to be a part of a lot of different things.”
