Editor’s note: the location of the rally and procession is at parking lot 13 outside Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, California, beginning at 3:00 p.m. Pacific Time. There will no longer be a procession beginning at the Cathedral of Our Lady of Angels, as previously reported.
LOS ANGELES (LifeSiteNews) — Bishop Joseph Strickland will lead a Eucharistic procession in reparation for the offenses committed by the anti-Catholic drag “nuns” who will be celebrated at an upcoming Los Angeles Dodgers baseball game.
On June 16, the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, Catholics will make a procession outside Dodger Stadium, where the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, an anti-Catholic group of drag “nuns,” will be honored during “Pride Night.”
The procession, first announced by Catholics for Catholics, will be offered “in reparation for offenses committed against Jesus Christ and all Christians by the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence (Drag Queens impersonating nuns and performing blasphemous shows).”
The main organizer of this event is Virgin Most Powerful Radio. The procession is also being sponsored by several other Catholic groups, including LifeSiteNews, Catholics for Catholics, America Needs Fatima, and CatholicVote.
Strickland recently urged Catholics on The Bishop Strickland Show to boycott events and companies that promote the LGBT agenda, including Target, Bud Light, and the upcoming Dodgers game.
“We need to speak up… Thankfully, Archbishop Cordileone, he nailed it when he talked about this garbage going on at Dodger Stadium. And, in itself, it’s satanic. It’s evil. And he said it shows what god… these people worship,” His Excellency stated. “And he’s absolutely right. They worship the worldly, fake, non-divine gods of money and power and worldly influence. And it is the path to hell. And they need to wake up. And anyone of faith needs to be stronger in faith than ever.”
“If you know the truth, you have to share it,” he added. “And no power on earth can or should cause us to tone it down or to be quiet.”
The MLB franchise plans to present the sacrilegious group, which engages in deliberately offensive sexualized burlesque mockeries of Catholicism, with an award at their “10th annual LGBTQ+ Pride Night” on June 16.
As LifeSiteNews previously reported, the group of “queer and trans nuns” have fundraised for HIV/AIDS research, the Gay Games (an LGBT-promoting athletic competition), and a proposition to legalize medical marijuana.
Thousands have petitioned the Dodgers to revoke the invitation to the blasphemous group.
Many conservatives responded on social media by slamming the baseball team for caving.
“Yes, it is vital that the national pastime honor and support those who mock religion and decency,” reacted Daily Wire co-founder and podcaster Ben Shapiro.
“The Gay Mafia will always extract their payment for ‘protection,’” said Crisis magazine editor-in-chief Eric Sammons.
Some social media users hinted that the team should face similar backlash to Bud Light, which is continuing to endure a massive boycott after its decision to promote transgender-identifying TikTok activist Dylan Mulvaney.
Similarly, while the Dodgers currently support the anti-Catholic group, the baseball franchise was formerly respectful of religion.
Former Dodgers great Sandy Koufax, a left-handed pitcher who was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1972, famously refused to pitch during Game 1 of the World Series because it fell on Yom Kippur, the most important holy day in the Jewish calendar. He previously opted out of games that landed on Passover and Rosh Hashanah.
And Koufax wasn’t alone in living an active faith. Legendary announcer Vin Scully, the “Voice of the Dodgers” for 67 years, was a staunch Catholic. Scully, who passed away last year at age 94, was described by Catholic News Agency’s Jonah McKeown as “a devout Catholic who found in his faith a source of joy and comfort and sought to share it with others through personal kindness and philanthropy.”
