Bishop Joseph Strickland and prominent evangelist Jesse Romero told Newsmax on Thursday they will be among the many Christians in Los Angeles on Friday rallying against the Dodgers’ honoring a performance drag group that mocks many Christian and Catholic practices as part of its Pride Night festivities.

Strickland, who heads the Diocese of Tyler, Texas, is scheduled to lead a Eucharistic procession at one of the parking lots at Dodger Stadium as part of a prayerful protest sponsored by Virgin Most Powerful Radio. Romero will lead a prayerful procession at Dodger Stadium in reparations for offenses committed against Jesus Christ and all Christians.

“I would characterize it more as speaking up the beautiful truth of Jesus Christ,” Strickland told “The Chris Salcedo Show” of his rally. “Our world needs [it] more desperately than ever. The situation with the Dodgers and this event that they’re sponsoring just really reminds me that people need to know who Jesus Christ is, the power of his love, his savior of all. That really was my motivation.

Catholics and Non-Catholics Join Forces to Stand Up to LA Dodgers Blaspheme vs. Jesus Christ

The LA Dodgers have invited a group of anti-Catholic drag queens called the “Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence” to their June 16th Pride Night to present them with the Community Hero Award. The group calls itself an “Order” and takes considerable delight in mocking Catholic customs and traditions by dressing up as nuns, calling themselves “sisters” and their leader “abbess” and quoting the Bible verse, “go and sin no more” and changing it to “go and sin some more.”  

The group expresses on their website that they “are a leading-edge Order of queer and trans nuns” and that they “use humor and irreverent wit to expose the forces of bigotry, complacency and guilt that chain the human spirit.” Yet they are blind to their own bigotry. Catholics around the world and especially those local to LA should be outraged by the public acceptance and celebration of a group that openly mocks and blasphemes the Sacred Traditions of the Catholic Church. If you are a Catholic or Christian and take your faith seriously, you cannot let such an offense occur against the Sacred Heart of Jesus.  Even non Catholics have been speaking up.
