Don’t Just Blame the Dodgers: Blame the Collapse of Catholic Fidelity

As the debate continues to rage over Los Angeles Dodgers’ honoring of the “good works” performed by the “Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence” — a group that has spent the last four decades denigrating Catholic religious nuns by dressing in drag and performing obscene gestures at Gay Pride parades — most of the criticism is directed at Dodgers management for caving to pressure from the LGBTQ tyrants. Few seem to notice the role that the LGBTQ enablers have played from their privileged perches within the Catholic Church itself.

It is time to call them out. It is time to point to the dissident priests, bishops, and religious sisters who have promoted the perversity of such groups as the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. It is time to name the growing number of feckless, faithless Catholics unwilling to defend the Christian biblical principles that offer them the only hope for the salvation of their souls and for the soul of the nation. It is time to admit that until faithful Catholics are willing to risk everything to tell the truth about the idolatrous aims of the left-wing LGBTQ movement and its enablers — replete with its demonic transgender ideology — groups like the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence will continue to be celebrated as heroes.

Pope St. John Paul II once wrote, “[F]reedom which refuse[s] to be bound to the truth [will] fall into arbitrariness and end up submitting itself to the vilest of passions, to the point of self-destruction.” Groups like the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence have already “submitted” themselves “to the vilest of passions” by denying the truth of natural law and promoting the big lie on the goodness of depravity. But what is worse is that there are those leaders within the Church who have helped them promote that lie.

Sister Jeannine Gramick is one of the key Catholic figures defending the Dodgers. A religious sister of the Order of the Sisters of Loretto, Gramick has been a strong supporter of the big lie for several decades now from her position as the founder and leader of New Ways Ministry — a dissident LGBTQ group founded in 1977. The ministry claims to be Catholic but was severely censured by the late Pope Benedict XVI because of its heterodox views on the intrinsic sinfulness of homosexual acts.
