Bishop Robert Barron calls for boycott of Dodgers over support of anti-Catholic group Drag Queen: ‘Let’s not just pray’
Catholic Bishop Robert Barron is calling for a boycott of the LA Dodgers for his outrageous support of a group of transgender drag queens who base their activism on hatred of Catholicism and Christianity.
Barron said Catholics had no choice but to boycott because the team “clearly isn’t answering a decent appeal to reason” for the team’s stubborn support of trans group, The Sisters of Perpetual. Indulgence.
The Los Angeles Dodgers have made it clear to Catholics and all people of goodwill that they believe mocking the sacred beliefs of the Catholic faith is something they support and will reward with honors and awards. congratulations,” Barron told Fox News Digital.
Let’s be clear. @crooks don’t just welcome “queer nuns” as part of their Pride Night. They give them a “community heroes” award.https://t.co/g5JQGbdllC

The bishop added that direct action is necessary.
“It is not enough for lay Catholics to experience catharsis because a bishop has spoken out about it, they must act to let the Dodgers organization know that their position is not only disappointing, it is unacceptable,” a- he writes.
Barron also posted a video on social media blaming the team for inviting the hate group to their Pride Night game.
Yet the Los Angeles Dodgers invited this group to be honored at their stadium. Anti-Catholicism is the last acceptable prejudice in America, and we should not tolerate it.

He added, “I’m a huge baseball fan. I even threw the first pitch at a Dodgers game. But I would encourage my friends in Los Angeles to boycott the Dodgers.
“Let us not just pray, but let our voices be heard in defense of our Catholic faith,” he wrote.
The bishop gave detailed examples of the hatred displayed by the group, including a pole-dancing Jesus. “For Catholics, it’s hard to imagine anything more offensive than that,” he said.

Barron, 62, is currently bishop of the Winona-Rochester Diocese in Minnesota.
The team took heat last week for their intention to give the radical hate group a “Hero” award during their June 16 Pride Night match. But initially, complaints from Catholics and Christians caused the Dodgers to disinvite the sisters from their Gay Pride Night.
But then the radical gay lobby swung into action, prompting the team to make another U-turn.
On May 22, Dodgers President Stan Kasten proudly announced that he was inviting the hate group back to their game.
