Once upon a time it was said “It’s as American as Baseball, Hotdogs, and Apple Pie.” But not anymore. The saying needs to be changed to “It’s as American as Hotdogs and Apple Pie.” It seems that Baseball has become more about social engineering and politics than baseball. And we can thank the Los Angeles Dodgers for this change. Haven’t you heard? Just in case, I’ll tell you. Now before some lace-waisted “woke” person gets their panties in a wad, I’m not saying, suggesting, or inferring that LBGTQI+ persons are not Americans. They are. This nation has been and continues to be the Great Melting Pot Experiment. But the Dodgers still dodged and stepped into a big fresh cow patty.
The Dodgers sponsor a Gay Pride night at Dodger Stadium. The “suits” in the office decided to invite The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence to this event. Not only that, but to give them a “community hero award”. Their name alone should have been enough to ward off such an invitation and recognition. But the “wokes” did it anyway. Then, the Catholic Diocese spoke out against the invitation. From the website of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, it says: “Go, And Sin Some More.”
It’s easy to see why the Catholic Diocese was against it. I know the word “Nun” isn’t copyrighted and the “traditional habit” isn’t patented, but they are a symbolic of the Roman Catholic Church. So the Woke Suits cancelled their invitation, initially. BUT THEN. . .there was push-back and threats. So the Woke Suits changed their minds . . . again. And now, The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence will be there–in all their pride. Who are they? Well, as the saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words:
Inspiring, aren’t they? To have received an apology from the Dodger Woke Suits, this must be a relatively large organization, wouldn’t you say? According to The Sisters Of Perpetual Indulgence, they have, get this–over 30 Members! Wow! They have names like: “Sister Bella Donna Summer BDSM, Sister Dana Van Iquity, Sister Edith Myflesh, and Sister Jezabelle of the Enraptured Sling”.
Not only did the Woke Suits of the L.A. Dodgers re-invite them–they also apologized to the group. Now look here! I’m against all forms of bigoted hate. So I don’t hate these. . .well. . .these activists who have gone off the deep end. The last time I checked, the L.A. Dodgers are a privately owned sports business–not a Social Engineering Firm. There is not a Government Political Officer watching over their every move, and reporting them if they step outside the party lines. If they want to dis-invite a group, they have that freedom. But. . .to cave in to what can only be called bullying, well, that’s just sad.
Bullying has been called a crisis and should be stopped. Yet, these Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence (who promote “Go and sin some more”) have bullied their way back into Dodger Stadium and be called Community Heroes even if they have bullied their way into that award. They want their freedom to express their views–but want the Catholic Diocese to be ignored. Can you say hypocrite? If the Dodgers want to have a Gay Pride night, complete with overpriced rainbow beer cups (maybe Bud Light can unload some of their inventory)–then they have that liberty. If they want to hang gay banners everywhere, then so be it. Just don’t apologize for doing the right thing.
The Dodger Woke Suits dodged the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence’s ire–but in doing so–they stepped into a mound of fresh bull manure. Well played, Woke Suits. Well played! Now, go clean your shoes. They stink!
