Cardinal McElroy Issues Statement about LA Dodgers’ Recognition of Anti-Catholic Organization

(SAN DIEGO) – Cardinal Robert W. McElroy today released the following statement concerning the Dodgers’ decision to recognize an anti-Catholic political group for its community efforts.

“The decision of the Los Angeles Dodgers to reinstate their plans to honor the ‘Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence’ on June 16th constitutes the endorsement of a group whose core identity for the past 44 years has been inextricably intertwined with the symbolic mockery of Catholic faith and the consecrated Catholic sisters who have given their lives in service to education, health care, justice and the poor.  I join my voice to the statement of Archbishop Gomez, which reflects both the dignity of LGBT persons and the reasons why the Dodgers’ decision should be reversed.”
