Former Los Angeles Auxiliary Bishop Robert Barron on Thursday called on Catholics to boycott the Los Angeles Dodgers over the team’s re-invitation of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence (SPI), which he called an “anti-Catholic hate group.”
SPI is an LGBTQ activist group of men who dress in lewd costumes that mimic the habits worn by Catholic nuns.
Barron served the Archdiocese of Los Angeles for nearly seven years. He left last year after being appointed to his current post as Bishop of Winona-Rochester in Minnesota.
“The Dodgers invited this group that I think could only be described as an anti-Catholic hate group,” Barron stated in a video posted to Twitter Thursday afternoon.
Friends, it’s hard to imagine anything more offensive than some of the behavior of the “Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence,” which I think can only be described as an anti-Catholic hate group. pic.twitter.com/VLZP28Soab— Bishop Robert Barron (@BishopBarron) May 25, 2023
Barron described that the Dodgers’ re-invitation of the SPI as being “accompanied by a kind of pathetic apology where [the SPI was] praised for all the great work that they do.”
When giving an example of this so-called “great work,” the bishop described the SPI’s Easter Sunday display “where they had Jesus on the Cross – the most sacred moment in history for Catholics,” and then
a drag queen comes in and kind of pulls Jesus off the Cross and then does a sort of pole dance on the Cross. For Catholics, it’s hard to imagine anything more offensive than that.
