'My Convictions in Jesus Christ Will Always Come First': Christian MLB Stars Take A Stand Against Dodgers For Honoring Anti-Christian Pride Group

On Tuesday, two Major League Baseball (MLB) stars voiced their opposition to the Los Angeles Dodgers, after they decided to honor the anti-Christian group 'the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence."

The Dodgers have decided to fully emerge themselves in anti-Christian blasphemy, with the ‘Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence’, putting on what can only be called a Satanic and vile performance, the DC Enquirer previously reported. "The Dodgers had previously revoked their invitation from the ‘Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence’ (SPI) after many Christian groups protested over the inappropriate and mocking nature of their performances. The baseball team later backtracked on that decision following outcries from LGBTQ organizations, reinviting them to the Pride Night event, with the group slated to receive the Community Hero Award at the June 16th event."

Essentially, the Dodgers put the concerns of the LGBTQ community ahead of those of Christians. Fortunately for Christians, since the MLB has several high-profile Christian athletes, it was no surprise when a few of them decided to attack this disgusting showing from the Dodgers.


“As a devout Catholic, I am deeply troubled by the Dodgers’ decision to re-invite and honor the group ‘The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence’ at their Pride Night this year," Nationals Pitcher Trevor Williams said in a statement. 
  "A Major League Baseball game is a place where people from all walks of life should feel welcomed, something I greatly respect and support. This is the purpose of different themed nights hosted by the organization, including Pride Night. To invite and honor a group that makes a blatant and deeply offensive mockery of my religion, and the religion of over 4 million people in Los Angeles county alone, undermines the values of respect and inclusivity that should be upheld by any organization," Williams added.

Williams concluded by saying, "I know I am not alone in my frustration, hurt, and disappointment about this situation. As Catholics, we look to Jesus Christ and the way He was treated and we realize that any suffering in this world unites us to Him in the next.”

 

In turn, Dodgers reliever Blake Treinen also voiced his opposition to the group, writing in a statement, "I am disappointed to see the Sister’s [sic] of Perpetual Indulgence being honored as heroes at Dodger Stadium. Many of their performances are blasphemous, and their work only displays hate and mockery of Catholics and the Christian faith."

"I understand that playing baseball is a privilege and not a right. My convictions in Jesus Christ will always come first.... I believe Jesus Christ died on the cross for my sins. I believe the word of God is true, and in Galatians 6:7 it says, ‘do not be deceived, God cannot be mocked; a man reaps what he sows.' This group openly mocks Jesus Christ, the cornerstone of my faith, and I want to make it clear that I do not agree with nor support the decision of the Dodger’s to 'honor' the Sister’s of Perpetual Indulgence," Treiner added.
  More and more Americans are waking up to the radicalism of the leftists in control of our institutions and we applaud those brave enough to call out that radicalism whenever it rears its ugly head.
