On Monday Night, the Los Angeles Dodgers announced they had reversed course again and reinvited the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence to be honored at their June 16 Pride Night festivities.
The drag queens who dress as nuns accepted the apology and will receive the Community Hero Award at the Dodgers' 10th annual LGBTQ+ Pride Night. They are being cited for the “life-saving work that they have done tirelessly for decades.”
In a statement on Twitter, the Dodgers said, “After much thoughtful feedback from our diverse communities, honest conversations within the Los Angeles Dodgers organization and generous discussions with the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, the Los Angeles Dodgers would like to offer our sincerest apologies to the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, members of the LGBTQ+ community and their friends and families.”
“In the weeks ahead, we will continue to work with our LGBTQ+ partners to better educate ourselves, find ways to strengthen the ties that bind, and use our platform to support all our fans who make up the diversity of the Dodgers Family,” the statement concluded.
The news comes five days after the Los Angeles Dodgers un-invited the group, which some consider an “anti-Catholic hate group,” after faith leaders complained.
“We are now aware that our inclusion of one group in particular – The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence – in this year’s Pride Night has been the source of some controversy,” the Dodgers' previous statement said.
“In an effort not to distract from the great benefits that we have seen over the years of Pride Night, we are deciding to remove [the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence] from this year’s group of honorees.”
Along with Catholic leaders, Florida Senator Marco Rubio weighed in on the conversation. In a letter to Major League Baseball commissioner Robert Manfred, he asked why MLB was allowing a “team to honor a group that mocks Christians through diabolical parodies of our faith?”
The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence's motto is “Go forth and sin some more.” They claim to be “a leading-edge order of queer and trans nuns.”
