Dodgers remove ‘Sisters Of Perpetual Indulgence’ from LGBT event due to controversy.

Los Angeles Dodgers Cancel Award for Anti-Catholic Drag Group

The Los Angeles Dodgers have decided to cancel the “Community Hero Award” for the Los Angeles chapter of the “Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence,” an anti-Catholic drag group. The group, which dresses in drag queen versions of Catholic religious habits, claims to have a “ministry” on its website. The Dodgers had planned to present the award to the group during the team’s “Pride Night” celebration before their June 16 home game. However, after receiving pushback from Catholics, the Dodgers have removed the group from the list of award recipients.

Who are the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence?

The group is made up of men who go by names like Sister T’aint A Virgin, Sister Risqué of the Sissytine Chapel, and Sister Edith Myflesh. They mock the process of becoming a Catholic nun by having members become a postulant, then a novice, and finally a fully professed “sister” with a black veil. One of the group’s founders originally used old habits used by real Catholic nuns. Their slogan is “Go forth and sin some more!”

Why was the award cancelled?

The group has a history of offensive actions towards Catholics. In 2007, members of the drag group tricked the archbishop of San Francisco into giving them the Eucharist so they could defile it. On Easter this year, the group put on a “Jesus and Mary-themed striptease” that involved a performer “writhing upside down on a large wooden cross,” according to the San Francisco Chronicle. They also had shirtless men compete to be crowned the “hunkiest” Jesus. CatholicVote, a Catholic nonprofit, wrote a letter to the Dodgers protesting the drag group’s award, calling their actions “blasphemous and deeply offensive to Christians everywhere.”

What did the Dodgers say?

In a statement, the Dodgers said, “Given the strong feelings of people who have been offended by the sisters’ inclusion in our evening, and in an effort not to distract from the great benefits that we have seen over the years of Pride Night, we are deciding to remove them from this year’s group of honorees.” The Dodgers are partnering with LA Pride to put on the team’s 10th annual Pride Night.

Justice was done in the end. There is no room for anti-Catholic bigotry in any gay or trans celebratory event,” said Catholic League President Bill Donohue in a statement.
