Dodgers Pitcher Blasts Team for Inviting ‘Drag Queen Nuns’: ‘Blasphemous’

Another member of the Los Angeles Dodgers is speaking out against the team’s promotion of a group of “drag queen nuns.”

Blake Treinen, a relief pitcher who has been in the major leagues for 10 years, released a statement through his friend Sean Feucht Tuesday expressing frustration that the Dodgers invited the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, a group of drag queen performance artists who dress as nuns. The Dodgers also gave the group a Community Hero Award. The Sisters were part of the Dodgers’ LGBT Pride night.

“I am disappointed to see the Sister’s of Perpetual Indulgence being honored as heroes at Dodger Stadium,” Treinen said. “Many of their performances are blasphemous, and their work only displays hate and mockery of Catholics and the Christian faith.

“I understand that playing baseball is a privilege, and not a right. My convictions in Jesus Christ will always come first. Since I have been with the Dodger’s they have been at the forefront of supporting a wide variety of groups. However, inviting the Sister’s of Perpetual Indulgence to perform disenfranchises a large community and promotes hate of Christians and people of faith. This single event alienates the fans and supporters of the Dodgers, Major League Baseball, and professional sports.”

He encouraged the Dodgers to avoid cultural debates.

“People like baseball for its entertainment value and competition,” Treinen said. “The fans do not want propaganda or politics forced on them. The debacle with Bud Light and Target should be a warning to companies and professional sports to stay true to their brand and leave the propaganda and politics off the field.”

His statement concluded with Scripture.

“I believe Jesus Christ died on the cross for my sins. I believe the word of God is true, and in Galatians 6:7 it says, ‘do not be deceived, God cannot be mocked; a man reaps what he sows.’ This group openly mocks Jesus Christ, the cornerstone of my faith, and I want to make it clear that I do not agree with nor support the decision of the Dodger’s to ‘honor’ the Sister’s of Perpetual Indulgence.’ ‘But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.’ Joshua 24:15.”

In 2018 as a pitcher for Oakland, he was fourth in Major League Baseball in saves (38) and first in win probability added (6.3).

Previously, teammate Clayton Kershaw also criticized the Dodgers for inviting the group.

“I don’t agree with making fun of other people’s religions,” Kershaw said. “It has nothing to do with anything other than that. I just don’t think that, no matter what religion you are, you should make fun of somebody else’s religion. So that’s something that I definitely don’t agree with.”
