(Dmytro “Henry” Aleksandrov, Headline USA) The Los Angeles Dodgers threw a beanball at decency with a Pride Night abomination featuring a gang of notoriously anti-Catholic drag queens dressed in grotesquely offensive nun costumes, resulting in massive prayerful protest outside the stadium and disastrously low attendance for the team’s game.
Thousands of protesters organized by Catholics for Catholics held a “prayerful procession” outside the stadium the same day the disgraceful Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence received a Community Hero Award at the stadium. Just before the Dodgers’ match against the San Francisco Giants started, the group was “honored” during the team’s Pride Night, the Daily Caller reported.
“If you are a Catholic or Christian and take your faith seriously, you cannot let such an offense occur against the Sacred Heart of Jesus,” Catholics for Catholics said in its May 31 event announcement. “Even non-Catholics have been speaking up.”
Initially, the Dodgers backed away from celebrating the “drag nun” group on May 17 after criticism from conservatives and Christians. The decision drew fire from the state’s leftist lawmakers and radical LGBT groups, leading MLB’s version of Bud Light to move forward with its plans.
The protest coincided with the Catholic feast day of the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, according to the Daily Caller, and was devastatingly effective as evidenced by an abundance of empty seats in the stadium, a tidal wave of peaceful protest outside the venue and a brutal backlash on social media.

Protesters held signs like “Men Can’t Be Nuns/Sisters” and “Sacred Heart of Jesus Have Mercy On Us” as an opposition to the promotion of deviancy by the now-infamous baseball team. Many people also offered prayers during the protest, including Human Events senior editor Jack Posobiec.
