'Go And Sin Some More': LA Dodgers Faces MASSIVE Backlash After Reinviting Anti-Christian LGBTQ 'Order Of Queen And Trans Nuns' To Pride Night Baseball Game

After growing backlash from multiple LGBTQ+ and civil rights groups, the Los Angeles Dodgers have reinvited the ‘Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence’ to the organization's Pride Night on June 16th.

“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,” a statement posted to the Dodgers Twitter account stated, “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.”
“We have asked the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence to take their place on the field at our 10th annual LGBTQ+ Pride Night on June 16,” The statement continued. “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 group was slated to receive the Community Hero Award, which they will now still receive on June 16th.

The Dodgers originally rescinded their invitation to the group last week, calling it a “source of some controversy” in a now-deleted tweet after a large amount of criticism from multiple Catholic organizations and politicians such as Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL).

According to the group's website, the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence are a “Leading-edge Order of queer and trans nuns. We believe all people have a right to express their unique joy and beauty,” and “have devoted ourselves to community service, ministry and outreach to those on the edges, and to promoting human rights, respect for diversity and spiritual enlightenment.”

Most criticism of the group, however, comes due to the reality that they mock Catholic teachings and practices.

Last week, Senator Rubio sent a letter to MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred questioning whether or not the inclusion of the group was being uninclusive 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,” Rubio explains.

“The 'sisters' are men who dress in lewd imitation of Roman Catholic nuns,” Rubio continues. “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 imitations 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."

After the announcement by the Dodgers that they would be reinviting the group, Rubio took to Twitter to voice his displeasure at the decision.

“Shamefully, (but not surprisingly) the @dodgers have been bullied into apologizing to & “re-inviting” a group of anti-catholic bigots.”
