At least two players for the Los Angeles Dodgers have come out against the team’s decision to invite the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence to attend the team’s Pride Night event in June.
In a statement shared to Twitter, relief pitcher Blake Treinen denounced his team’s decision. “I believe Jesus Christ died on the cross for my sins,” he wrote in a statement shared by Sean Feucht. “I believe the word of God is true, and in Galatians 6:7 it says, ‘do not be deceived, God cannot be mocked; a man reaps what he sows.”
He went on to say that the group “openly mocks Jesus Christ, the cornerstone of my faith, and I want to make it clear that I do not agree with nor support the decision of the Dodger’s to ‘honor’ the Sister’s of Perpetual Indulgence.”
Treinen Is Not Alone
Treinen joined his teammate Clayton Kershaw is his disapproval of the show. “I don’t agree with making fun of other people’s religions,” Kershaw said, according to the Washington Examiner. “It has nothing to do with anything other than that. I just don’t think that, no matter what religion you are, you should make fun of somebody else’s religion. So that’s something that I definitely don’t agree with.”
