CatholicVote launches $1 million campaign to boycott Dodgers against anti-Catholic group Drag Queen

CatholicVote is stepping up its pressure on the Los Angeles Dodgers over its invitation to a radical group of anti-Catholic transgender drag queens the team invited to play in its June 16 Pride Night game.

The Dodgers also plan to give the anti-Catholic group known as the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence a “Community Heroes Award.”

Brian Burch, President of CatholicVote, sent a letter to Dodgers Principal Owner Mark Walter and CEO Stan Kasten expressing his group’s concern over the team’s invitation to hate group, The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. , reported Fox News.

“I represent the largest secular Catholic advocacy organization in the country,” Burch said in the letter. “We are backed by millions of dedicated Catholics across America who believe that the age-old values ​​of life, family and liberty – 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 request: Please do not honor this anti-Catholic hate group,” Burch continued. “There is no place for anti-Catholic fanaticism, the mockery of nuns or the celebration of a group of evil activists whose identity is marked by the blasphemy and mockery of Catholics.”

Burch also said he doubted the team’s claim that they were “listening to everyone” on the matter.

The head of the organization said CatholicVote is preparing a million-dollar ad campaign to urge the team to boycott its decision to support the hate group.

“Prior to the launch of this campaign, we request yet another opportunity to speak by phone or meet in person with an appropriate representative so that you can better understand the extraordinary hurt and hurt your decision has brought,” Burch added.

Florida Senator Marco Rubio also criticized the team for partnering with the Sisters.

“Do you believe the Los Angeles Dodgers are ‘inclusive and welcoming to everyone’ by awarding an award to a group of gay and transgender drag performers who intentionally mock and degrade Christians – and not just Christians but nuns, who dedicate their lives to serving others?” Rubio wrote in a letter to the team.

Catholic League President Bill Donohue also denounced the Dodgers’ decision to award the Community Hero Award to the “lewd anti-Catholic group.”

The Dodgers have smeared their civil rights record by “promoting bigotry, not fighting it,” exclaimed Dr. Donohue. “By rewarding anti-Catholicism, the Dodgers have broken bread with the most despicable elements of American society today.”

Donohue added that the team’s event was not about “diversity and inclusion” but rather “rewarding hate speech”.

Catholic Bishop Robert Barron has also called for a boycott of the LA Dodgers for his outrageous support of a group of transgender drag queens.

Barron said Catholics had no choice but to boycott because the team “clearly isn’t answering a decent call to reason” for the team’s stubborn support of the trans group.

The situation arose after the team took heat for their intention to give the radical hate group a “Hero” award during their June 16 Pride Night match. But initially, complaints from Catholics and Christians caused the Dodgers to disinvite the sisters from their Gay Pride Night.

But then the radical gay lobby swung into action, prompting the team to make another U-turn.

On May 22, Dodgers President Stan Kasten proudly announced that he was inviting the hate group back to their game.
