AAF Founder Mike Pence to the MLB: “It is not too late to reverse course”

Today, Advancing American Freedom founder Vice President Mike Pence sent a letter to Major League Baseball Commissioner Robert Manfred, urging him to “act quickly” on the Dodger’s decision to host and award the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, an anti-Catholic hate group.

Excerpt from the letter:

“Now in 2023, Major League Baseball is standing by as our national pastime is desecrated by the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, an anti-Catholic hate group with a history of religious bigotry. For reasons completely beyond understanding, the Los Angeles Dodgers decided to give an award to the “Sisters,” giving a public platform and spotlight for their indecency that risks sexualizing young children. For a moment, it looked like the Dodgers might reverse course, but sanity has not prevailed in Los Angeles.

“Baseball once stood for American greatness, but when it openly invites attacks on Christian faith, sexualizes children with graphic public displays, and undermines the family-friendly environment that baseball has long stood for, it is clear that those days are fading fast.

While baseball has had a bad streak over the past few years, that does not mean the book is closed on the MLB. “Pride Night,” when the Dodgers will recognize the “Sisters,” is not until June 16. It is still not too late to reverse course and recover the reputation of American baseball.”
