Finally, multiple Roman Catholic bishops are fighting back against the Los Angeles Dodgers’ sacrilegious decision to re-invite a group of deviant drag queen “nuns” to its Pride Night in June.

On Thursday, prominent Bishop Robert Barron tweeted, “Friends, it’s hard to imagine anything more offensive than some of the behavior of the ‘Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence,’ which I think can only be described as an anti-Catholic hate group.”

As reported, the “Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence” are made up of adult men who dress as perverted nuns. In turn, they openly sexualize Jesus Christ and degrade Mary Mother of God while disparaging other key components of the Roman Catholic faith and encouraging “sexual liberation.”

“Anti-Catholicism is the last acceptable prejudice in America, and we shouldn’t tolerate it,” Barron added.

Indeed, it’s almost impossible to imagine the Dodgers ever honoring a group that did this to any other religion. Yet simply saying, “Wow! Imagine if this situation were reversed!” doesn’t accomplish much of anything. It’s a path toward cultural suicide and lets those who trample upon your way of life get away with it, eroding all sense of normalcy until you wake up in a world gone truly mad.

So, Barron called for fans to ditch the Dodgers.

“I’m a big baseball fan,” he noted. “I’ve even thrown out the first pitch at a Dodgers game. But I’d encourage my friends in LA to boycott the Dodgers. Let’s not just pray, but make our voices heard in defense of our Catholic faith.”

Barron also told Fox News, “It’s not enough for the Catholic laity to experience a catharsis because a bishop has spoken up about this, they need to take action to let the Dodgers organization know that their position is not just disappointing, it is unacceptable.”

Barron isn’t alone. Bishop Strickland of Tyler, Texas, encouraged Catholics to contact the team and “Please speak against this evil being promoted at Dodger Stadium…”

“The LA Dodgers are going to honor these hateful freaks,” Steve Cortes tweeted. “Big Sports and Big Media don’t fear Christians is because too many pastors, bishops etc cower in fear of the Establishment. Also, ‘conservative’ politicians side with Disney, Bud Light, etc.”

The following video is graphic, but this Twitter video is the sort of vulgarity that the Dodgers think is worth celebrating:

Indeed, it is gross, weird, and evil. Any Christian — not just those who are Catholic — should be repulsed by it. We’ll see how a Dodgers boycott will impact the ball club. Such pushback has impacted other companies that have engaged in similar behavior. Target recently went into “emergency mode” for also pushing radical gender theory and the LGBTQ agenda onto impressionable young kids.

The only reason businesses — which ultimately that is what the Dodgers are — think they can spit on the Christian religion is because they don’t think will face any consequences in their bank account. Time to prove them wrong.
