Nancy Pelosi, 83, tapped to throw first pitch at Nats’ LGBTQ-themed ‘Night OUT’ celebration

Self-identified Catholic “Speaker Emerita” Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is scheduled to take another overt stance in favor of the state religion with first pitch honors for the 18th “Night OUT.”

Tuesday night as the Washington Nationals get set to host the Arizona Diamondbacks for a three-game set, the Major League Baseball team will also be maintaining their longstanding position amidst new controversy at the heart of a cultural and spiritual war in the United States.

Monday, a statement from the team announced that Pelosi would have the honor of throwing the ceremonial first pitch for the “longest-running Pride event” in the league.

“Speaker Emerita Pelosi is being recognized for her long-standing commitment to fighting for the rights and dignities of the LGBTQ+ community, dating from her first congressional speech in 1987 on the AIDS crisis, up through leading recent legislation guaranteeing civil rights protections on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity,” the statement read.

The decision for the 83-year-old congresswoman to actively participate in the event comes as the league, and in particular, the Los Angeles Dodgers, has faced an outcry from fans and players alike after reversing their decision and moving forward with honoring the anti-Catholic Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence.

As previously reported, the Dodgers initially retracted their invite but caved to pressure from alphabet activists choosing to disenfranchise and insult their faithful fans rather than the radical deviants. “In the weeks ahead, we will continue to work with our LGBTQ+ partners to better educate ourselves, find ways to strengthen the ties that bind and use our platform to support all of our fans who make up the diversity of the Dodgers family.”

An attempt to placate the Christian community was announced by Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw with the relaunch of “Christian Faith and Family Day” at the end of July. However, the move failed to address the reality that celebrating the anti-Catholic group stood in direct contradiction to the deeply held beliefs of fans and players who were left quietly voicing their frustration to the MLB Players Association.

Of course, while the controversy impacts Christians throughout the league, Pelosi has never had such qualms regarding her much-touted Catholic faith. In May 2022, then-Speaker Pelosi was excommunicated by San Francisco’s Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone, banning her from receiving Holy Communion “until such time as you publicly repudiate your advocacy for the legitimacy of abortion and confess and receive absolution of this grave sin in the sacrament of Penance.”

Furthermore, after reports that Pelosi may have had an exorcism conducted at her San Francisco residence after her husband Paul Pelosi had been assaulted in their home, President of the Catholic League Bill Donohue said, “The woman is positively conflicted. She wears her Catholicism on her sleeve while basically sticking her middle finger at the Catholic Church every opportunity she has.”

“If it’s genuine, she needs psychiatric help,” he continued. “And if not, it’s another example of Nancy Pelosi exploiting the Catholic Church for her own personal gain.”

The same could be said for the equally Catholic President Joe Biden, whose administration doubled down on their embrace of “inclusivity” by hoisting an updated standard of the rainbow jihad at the U.S. Embassy to the Holy See that included the colors of the gender dysphoric.
