Bishop Barron calls on faithful to boycott LA Dodgers 'in defense of our Catholic faith'

"Attacking Catholics in this most disgraceful way is somehow ok," he lamented.

On Thursday, Bishop Robert Barron released a video offering his thoughts on the controversy surrounding the Los Angeles Dodgers' decision to not only host, but honor the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence drag group at the team's Pride Night on June 16. 

Describing the "drag nuns" as an "anti-Catholic hate group," Barron urged the faithful of Los Angeles to boycott the Dodgers to show the team that glorifying such activities has consequences.

"You know the Dodgers invited this group ... to be honored at Dodgers Stadium, then when there was a howl of protest from Catholics and others, they disinvited them," Barron began, referring to the latter as a "good move."

"But then they reinvited them," he continued, "and the reinvitation was accompanied by a kind of pathetic apology where they were praised for all the great work they do."

Barron went on to highlight some of the group's prior stunts, including one in which a drag queen pulled Jesus Christ off the cross and proceeded to pole dance on the timbers.

"For Catholics, it's hard to imagine anything more offensive than that," Barron said, suggesting that if the group had poked fun at any other faith, the reaction from the public would have been completely different.

"Attacking Catholics in this most disgraceful way is somehow ok," he lamented, claiming that anti-Catholicism was one of the last acceptable prejudices in America.

Noting that he was a "big baseball fan," Barron called on Catholics in Los Angeles to boycott the Dodgers "in defense of our faith" to send a message to the team that such offensive acts would not be tolerated.

Barron's sentiments have been echoed by countless other Catholics across social media, many of whom agreed that the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence were nothing more than an anti-Catholic troupe.

In the days since the Dodgers capitulated to the woke mob and reinvited the group, the left has ramped up its celebration of them. On Monday, the new York Times compared the move to the Dodgers' decision to call up Jackie Robinson, the first African American to play in the MLB, in 1947.
