After the Los Angeles Dodgers announced that they will be honoring a group of drag queens who dress as nuns, a prominent Catholic advocacy group sent a letter to the team requesting a dialogue before the event and informing them that they have already prepared a $1 million advertising budget to call for a boycott.
CatholicVote President Brian Burch wrote to the CEO and principal owner of the famed Los Angeles baseball team after the Dodgers ignored a request not to honor the "anti-Catholic hate group" that calls itself the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence.
"We wrote to you last week with a reasonable ask(...)There is no place for anti-Catholic bigotry, mocking of religious sisters, or celebrating a perverse activist group whose identity is marked by blasphemy and mockery of Catholics," Burch said.
In the letter, the CatholicVote president insisted on having a conversation before the event, which is scheduled for June 16, to discuss the "extraordinary harm" generated by the sports team's decision.
Burch also took the opportunity to remind everyone that he represents the "nation's largest lay Catholic advocacy organization," which implies that it has the support of "millions of devoted Catholics across America who believe that the time-honored values of life, family, and freedom.[...]are demonstrably good for America, and worthy of respect, not ridicule."

In the message, he informs both the owner and CEO of the Dodgers that they have already prepared a $1 million advertising budget to call on Catholics to boycott the team.
"The voices of Catholics — including clergy and religious sisters, which we would include — need to be heard. We are hopeful you will match your rhetoric of 'listening to everyone' with action," Burch's letter culminated in reference to a statement the baseball team manager made, where he spoke on the topic of inviting the anti-Catholic group and said the Dodgers were "listening to everyone."
Recently, several companies have been affected by the boycott calls made by conservatives. Bud Light and Target are probably two of the most prominent examples of this, as both have recorded significant losses after they made woke decisions under the justification of promoting or supporting diversity.
