Catholic Group Launches Massive Ad Campaign Calling Out LA Dodgers Bigotry

A conservative Catholic coalition has launched a massive advertisement campaign against the Los Angeles Dodgers, who have been facing boycotts and backlash in response to their decision to honor an anti-Catholic hate group of drag queen “nuns.”

During the Dodgers’ “Pride Night” on Friday, the team honored the so-called “Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence” with a “Community Hero Award.”

The radical LGBT group, which mocks Catholicism by dressing up as “queer and trans nuns” and desecrating Christian symbols, went viral in May after the Dodgers announced their award. The team ended up uninviting the group in response to backlash from conservatives and Christians, but quickly reinvited them due to outrage from the radical left.

Just before the Dodgers’ “Pride Night” event, Wisconsin-based nonprofit CatholicVote launched a seven-figure ad campaign entitled “The Dodgers Have Lost Their Way” — which highlights the team’s history through the civil rights era, when Jackie Robinson became the first Black player in Major League Baseball (MLB).

“The Dodgers were trailblazers. Playing Jackie wasn’t popular. Hate and disrespect were popular… But the Dodgers were right,” the narrator began, adding: “But today, the Dodgers are putting it all at risk.”

“On June 16th, a prominent, anti-Catholic hate group will be honored on the field,” the narrator continued.

The narrator went on to note that the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence mock Catholic nuns with their disturbing “perversions” — including “pole dances on crosses.”

“A fringe group like this? Honored? Awarded? Celebrated? There is no equality in mocking women religious, no tolerance in hate, no pride in anti-Catholic bigotry,” the narrator added.

“Mocking Christians is not the Dodger way,” the video concluded.

According to CatholicVote, only one network refused to run the ad — Spectrum SportsNet LA, which just so happens to be “50% owned by the Dodgers itself,” the nonprofit noted.

“We weren’t shocked that the Dodgers’ affiliate canceled our ad because the Dodgers have shown repeatedly that they only care about the feelings of these extremist bigots,” said Tommy Valentine of CatholicVote.

“We pivoted quickly and already have millions of views of the ad across various platforms. We will not be silenced, and we will not stand idly by while the Dodgers show their contempt for Catholics,” he added.

Alongside the ad campaign, the Dodgers also faced protests on the evening of the “Pride Night” event, with over a thousand people showing up to the stadium to speak out against the team and the anti-Catholic hate group.
