The clip below is from a fascinating article on FoxNews – please read the whole thing. As you may recall, the Los Angeles Dodgers invited “The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence” to appear at their LGBTQWTF night, in their ongoing efforts to educate the community of Los Angeles about baseball. Then the Dodgers were reminded that a huge part of their fan base is Hispanic Catholics who don’t appreciate the open ridicule of that group, so they un-invited them. Well, you will not be surprised to learn that after further reflection, the Dodgers have changed their mind again:
My goodness. Those must have been some meetings. So after “generous discussions with The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence,” the Dodgers are pleased that the Sisters “have agreed to receive the gratitude of our collective communities for the lifesaving work that they have done tirelessly for decades.”
The picture in the article shows a sample of the work they have been doing tirelessly for decades. It looks different than the work I’ve done over the course of my career. Different type of thing, I guess.
There’s so much here. But I can’t get past the “generous discussions with The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence.” The Dodgers say they are thankful that The Sisters deigned to meet with them. Chairman Mao would be proud.
This is not about gay issues. It’s not about abortion. It’s not even about the Catholic faith. And it certainly is not about baseball, which is what the LA Dodgers used to be focused on. It’s not about any of those things.
It’s about power. That’s it.
Chairman Mao would be proud.
If this doesn’t scare you, you’re not paying attention.Published in
