June is Pride Month, and it has touched every facet of the public, including America’s favorite pastime, which is now entering the fray. The Los Angeles Dodgers re-invited the anti-Catholic trans group Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence to receive an award at one of their games. And many other MLB teams are hosting Pride Nights. These events may virtue signal to the world their support for the LGBTQ+ revolution, but have they considered the divisiveness they’re bringing onto the ballfield? Many players who have religious convictions on sexual ethics are put in a tough spot. And what about the fans who bring their family to the ballpark for the afternoon? Most don’t want their children exposed to LGBT activism. So the Major League, like Bud Light and Target, may change course if it hurts their bottom line.
