Calif. lawmakers to honor member of blasphemous anti-Catholic trans nun group, despite Dodgers backlash

The California State Legislature’s LGBTQ Caucus is getting ready to honor Sister Roma of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, who pillory Catholic nuns, mock Christian beliefs, and conduct blasphemous acts to promote gay and trans communities.

The anti-Catholic trans nun group has been at the center of a controversy involving the Los Angeles Dodgers who recently came under fire after announcing their plan to honor the group with the “Community Hero Award” before their June 16 game. The anti-Christian organization holds an annual “Foxy Mary” and “Hunky Jesus” contest, features pole dancing on crosses, and pushes the motto, “Go forth and sin some more!”

Michael Williams is “Sister Roma” and is known for doing a podcast that covers pornographic movies and LGBTQ issues. The California Senate has him on the honoree list for its upcoming Pride recognition night.

“For more than three decades, Sister Roma has been one of the most outspoken and globally recognized members of San Francisco’s Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence,” the LGBTQ Caucus announcement proclaimed.

“Honoring the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, a group whose sole mission is to sexualize nuns and mock Jesus, reveals the true depth of hatred California’s elected officials have for the millions of Catholics residing in the state,” Mark Trammell, who is the executive director of the Center for American Liberty, told Fox News Digital in an interview.

Religious advocates call the group a “blatantly perverted, sexual, and disgusting anti-Catholic hate group.” But that didn’t stop California lawmakers from inviting Williams to their June 5 event.

“It’s disgusting that the California Senate is choosing to honor an anti-Catholic hate group. Would Democrats still embrace this group if they mocked Jews or Muslims? Bigotry and discrimination against any religious group are wrong and have no place being honored in the State Capitol,” California Assembly Republican Leader James Gallagher told Fox News Digital in an issued statement.

Following the Dodgers’ announcement that they will honor the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and religious groups such as CatholicVote objected to the award. The team then announced it would no longer be honoring the group at the Pride event “given the strong feelings of people who have been offended by the sisters’ inclusion in our evening.”

That didn’t last long and evidently, due to pressure, the Dodgers apologized to the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence and reinvited them to the event.

“I am disappointed to see the Sister’s [sic] of Perpetual Indulgence being honored as heroes at Dodger Stadium. Many of their performances are blasphemous, and their work only displays hate and mockery of Catholics and the Christian faith,” Dodgers reliever Blake Treinen said in a statement following the announcement.

“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 Dodgers, they have been at the forefront of supporting a wide variety of groups,” he said in a statement.

“However, inviting the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence to perform disenfranchises a large community and promotes hate of Christians and people of faith,” he asserted. “This single event alienates the fans and supporters of the Dodgers, Major League Baseball, and professional sports.”

Treinen was not finished and boldly embraced his faith.

“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,” he admonished.

Treinen then quoted the Bible, specifically Galatians 6:7, which says that “God cannot be mocked” and “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 Dodgers to ‘honor’ the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence,” he concluded.

He wasn’t the only team member who was upset over it either. Starter Clayton Kershaw commented, “This has nothing to do with the LGBTQ community or Pride or anything like that. This is simply a group that was making fun of a religion, that I don’t agree with.”

The group was initially formed on Easter Sunday in 1979. They advocate for anti-Catholic causes including abortion and all forms of debauchery.
