A Catholic Major League Baseball pitcher has expressed his opposition to the Los Angeles Dodgers’ decision to honor a blasphemous anti-Catholic drag group. Trevor Williams, who is currently with the Washington Nationals, posted a statement to social media in which he calls out 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,” Williams wrote:
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 also pointed out that the Dodgers will be violating their own policies by hosting the group:
It is a clear violation of the Dodgers’ Discrimination Policy, which explicitly states that any conduct or attire at the ballpark that is deemed to be indecent or prejudice [sic] against any particular group (or religion) is not tolerated.
It seems that the Dodgers have made an exception in this case, doubling down that this group – which grossly disrespects and openly mocks many of the traditions and beliefs that Catholics hold most dear – should be celebrated.
Williams also expressed his belief that “it is essential that the Dodgers reconsider their association with this group,” and encouraged Catholics to take a stand: “I encourage my fellow Catholics to reconsider their support of an organization that allows this type of mockery of its fans to occur.”
CatholicVote President Brian Burch recently announced a plan to raise funds for a $1 million ad campaign confronting the Dodgers.
As CatholicVote previously reported:
After the Los Angeles Dodgers on Monday reinvited an anti-Catholic hate group to be honored at the team’s June 16 LGBTQ+ Pride Night, CatholicVote President Brian Burch vowed to launch a “barrage” of advertising against the team across Los Angeles and in game broadcasts.
“This is a slap in the face of every Catholic,” said Burch. “We’re raising $1 million as fast as we can, and we will pummel this decision in advertising that the Dodgers can’t ignore.”
“Every advertiser, every season ticket holder, every charity, every fan must speak out against the Dodgers’ decision to promote anti-Catholic hate,” Burch added. “Why does ‘pride’ have to include honoring the most grotesque and scandalous anti-Catholic perverts?”
