Anti-Catholic Hate Has No Place in America, Much Less America’s National Pastime

When we first learned of the Los Angeles Dodgers’ plans to award the vile hate group known as the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence (SPI) with a “Community Hero Award,” we were in disbelief…. Why would Dodgers owner Todd Boehly decide to taint baseball’s beloved legacy of patriotism, faith, and family with a group that exists to defile religious values?…
We first pitched this op-ed to the Los Angeles Times. We pinged the paper four times over the course of three days but received no response. We take this as an indication that the pro-Dodgers Times does not wish its readers to hear the other side of the story….

Would anyone tolerate a group that portrayed the prophet Muhammad as a drag queen? Or a striptease at the Western Wall in Jerusalem? Of course not. But now, when pro-abortion extremists are already unleashing a wave of violent attacks on Catholics around the country, the Dodgers have made it clear that anti-Catholicism is not only an acceptable form of bigotry, but laudable….
This should outrage the millions of Catholics in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, whose voices and religious beliefs are clearly despised by the very team relying on their support. It should also concern the millions of non-Catholic Los Angeles residents, whose team decided to openly encourage and celebrate anti-Catholic discrimination.
We will not stand for these attacks on our faith. Everyone in Southern California should understand that the Dodgers they knew and loved sacrificed their legacy and honor on the altar of anti-Catholic hate.
