Controversy has erupted as Ted Nugent, the outspoken conservative rocker, has strongly criticized the Los Angeles Dodgers for their decision to include the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, a group known for their LGBTQ+ activism, at a Pride Night event scheduled for June 16.
The Dodgers’ announcement regarding the invitation of this well-known San Francisco order, which has been in existence since the 1970s, sparked accusations from conservative Roman Catholics and politicians who claimed that the group was mocking nuns and the Christian faith. CatholicVote, a non-profit advocacy group, even initiated a $1 million campaign urging people to boycott the baseball franchise.
In response to the backlash, the Dodgers initially stated that they would not feature the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence during the Pride Night festivities. However, in the face of outrage from LGBTQ+ groups across the country, the organization reversed course. The Dodgers issued a public apology, expressing their sincerest apologies to the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, the LGBTQ+ community, and their supporters. The team revealed that they had engaged in honest conversations within their organization and with the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, ultimately inviting the group to take their place on the field at the 10th annual LGBTQ+ Pride Night.
The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, in their own statement, acknowledged that they had met with the Dodgers’ president and CEO and received a full apology and explanation. They expressed their acceptance of the apology and their appreciation for the Dodgers’ recognition of their “lifesaving work” over the years. The group also expressed their hope for blessings upon the upcoming games.
Ted Nugent, in a recent interview with Eric Bolling on Newsmax’s “Eric Bolling The Balance,” addressed the controversy. Nugent strongly condemned the decision-makers involved, labeling them as agents of “pure evil” and accusing them of engaging in Satanism by attacking Christ and religious individuals who adhere to principles such as the Ten Commandments, the Golden Rule, and the Constitution. Nugent claimed that evil had a strong influence in American society, asserting its control over various aspects, including political parties and government agencies. He emphasized his personal beliefs in God, family, country, and the importance of upholding the Constitution, while criticizing those he referred to as “perverts” for aligning themselves with evil. That said, he also had a meltdown recently for a sad reason.
“Satan has his foot in the American door right now,” Nugent continued. “He’s got the president, he’s got the vice president, he’s got almost everybody in the Democrat party and the Republican party, they’ve got the DOJ, the CDC, the FDA, the USDA — literally evil controls the majority, if not all, of Uncle Sam right now.
“So, once again, this is an experiment in self-government,” Ted added. “I’m just a guitar player, but everybody who works for me in government knows exactly what this guitar player believes in. It’s God, family, country, Constitution, Bill Of Rights, being the best that you can be, law and order. And these perverts are literally doing the evil deeds of Satan. It’s so obvious, even guitar players can figure it out.”
