Last Call to L.A. Catholics

Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights
June 15, 2023

NEW YORK, June 15, 2023 /Christian Newswire/ -- The following is submitted by Bill Donohue, President, Catholic League:

    It all began May 16. That was the day we launched a massive email campaign asking our followers to contact Rob Manfred, the Commissioner of Major League Baseball, protesting the decision by the Los Angeles Dodgers to honor the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence on "Pride Night" June 16. The very next day, the Dodgers pivoted and disinvited the bigots. Then they pivoted again, reinviting them.

    Over the past five weeks we have been relentless in our quest for a boycott of the June 16 game. We disseminated a report I wrote on the anti-Catholic antics of the "Sisters" wide and far, including a mailing to over 300 parishes in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.

    Our boycott will not extend beyond Friday night. We chose one game for one reason: Prudence dictates that we can't get fans to boycott all Dodgers games. But we may be able to persuade them not to attend the June 16 game.

    This is our "Last Call" to all of those key players in the Los Angeles area that we have contacted over the past several weeks. We are contacting all of them again.
