Protests Erupt Outside Dodgers Stadium As the Team Honored Anti-Catholic Drag Queen Group

Objectivity 3.9 | Credibility 4.7 | Relevance 4.8

The L.A. Dodgers honored an anti-Catholic drag queen group in front of around 50 fans at its stadium last week while more than 1,000 pro-Catholic protesters gathered outside. The team decided to honor the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence at their Pride event with their Community Heroes Award. The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence are a “leading-edge Order of queer and trans nuns,” according to the organization’s website.  The pro-Catholic demonstrators who protested outside even blocked one of the main entrances to the stadium at one point.  The extent of the backlash to the Dodgers’ decision to honor the anti-Catholic drag queens is marked by the people outside protesting who outnumbered those in the stadium by about 50 times.
