The LA Dodgers are trying to have their cake and eat it too by inviting anti-Catholic drag group the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence AND hosting a Christian faith night sponsored by Dodgers players, including star Clayton Kershaw.
But the invitation of the "sisters" has continued to generate outrage against the MLB team and now players within the organization are beginning to speak out.
Blake Treinen, a pitcher for the Dodgers, released this statement on social media through his friend Sean Feucht, a Christian musician and influencer.
I am disappointed to see the Sister's 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. Since I have been with the Dodger's they have been at the forefront of supporting a wide variety of groups. However, inviting the Sister's of Perpetual Indulgence to perform disenfranchises a large community and promotes hate of Christians and people of faith. This single event alienates the fans and supporters of the Dodgers, Major League Baseball, and professional sports. People like baseball for its entertainment value and competition. The fans do not want propaganda or politics forced on them. The debacle with Bud Light and Target should be a warning to companies and professional sports to stay true to their brand and leave the propaganda and politics off the field.
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.
"But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord." Joshua 24:15.
Hopefully, Treinen will stick to his guns and refuse to walk this back.
Pray for him to endure as he faces intense pressure from the woke mob. 🙏
