“blatantly perverted, sexual, and disgusting anti-Catholic hate group”
The L.A. Dodgers carried through with their plan to honor the ‘Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence’ with a ‘Community Hero Award’ this weekend.
In response, thousands of Catholics and others showed up to protest the event, mostly through prayer. Critics say the group mocks the Catholic faith, and it’s impossible to disagree when you see these men in clownish nun costumes.

Thousands of protesters descend upon Dodger Stadium, take over entire block as team honors ‘drag nun’ group
Thousands of demonstrators descended upon Dodgers Stadium Friday evening to protest the team’s Pride Night ceremony honoring a controversial group of queer and trans nuns.
Organized by the group Catholics for Catholics, the massive crowd jammed up the main entrance of the ballpark ahead of the scheduled pre-game ceremony celebrating the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, according to reports.
The mass of protesters, some holding signs like “Bud Light the Dodgers” and “Stop Anti Catholic Hate,” took over the entire block on Vin Scully Avenue and chanted “Save our Children.”
The local chapter of the Sisters, whose members dress up in drag in traditional Catholic nun habits, are being presented with the Dodgers’ Community Hero Award for their “lifesaving work” for the teams’ 10th annual Pride Night.
Critics have blasted the group as a “blatantly perverted, sexual, and disgusting anti-Catholic hate group.”
Here’s a local video report. The reporters seem genuinely surprised by the size of the crowd.

Tonight at Dodgers Stadium the @Dodgers @MLB didn’t just honor an anti-Christian group, they joined in the mocking of the Catholic faith by having their PA announcer introduce as “sisters” two men from this hate group dressed as nuns

It feels like something has shifted. Many people have become more aware and involved.
FOX News reported:
Videos showing vast numbers of Protestants and Catholics protesting an L.A. Dodgers baseball game that included a presentation honoring an activist LGTBTQ group drew massive support from many on social media Friday.
Conservative lawmakers, commentators and influencers praised the demonstrators on Twitter for taking a stand against the perceived anti-Christian display that was taking place at the nearby Dodger Stadium.
Prominent users claimed the demonstration was “one of the “best things I’ve seen happen this year” and proof that “the world is over the woke agenda.”
You wanted a culture war, you got it.
