Dodgers Strike Out

An estimated 5,000 people, including Catholics, Evangelicals and a Jewish rabbi peacefully gathered outside Dodger Stadium last week to protest the honoring of a Christian-hating LGBTQ+ group.

The occasion was the Dodgers' annual "Pride Night" to celebrate homosexuality. Among the organizations singled out for special recognition by the Dodgers organization was a disgusting drag-queen group called the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. These men describe themselves as an "order of queer and trans nuns." They have a long history of mocking Christ, the Crucifixion, Christians, and Catholic religious sisters. But the Dodgers organization, for reasons not clear to any sane, decent person, felt they should receive a "Community Hero Award."

When word first spread that these anti-Christian bigots would be honored, JDFI and many Catholic and Protestant leaders expressed outrage. Senator Marco Rubio sent a scathing letter exposing the "Sisters," whose motto is, "Go and sin some more."

Under the withering criticism, the Dodgers announced they would not present the award. But then the other major LGBTQ groups participating in Pride Night threatened to withdraw from the festivities unless the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence were restored as a "community hero." The Dodgers dodged again.

They not only restored the anti-Christian drag queen group to its "honor role," they publicly apologized to the "Sisters" for any inconvenience caused by the controversy.

On game night, the blasphemous group of drag-queen fake nuns received their reward a full hour before the Dodgers/Giants game began. They were greeted with boos from the few fans in their seats. Meanwhile, outside the stadium, thousands of godly men and women stood in unity in defense of our Christian faith. The Dodgers lost the PR war and went on to lose to the San Francisco Giants 15 to 0 (the worst home shutout loss in team history).

The question is how did we get to this point in America where a baseball franchise with a great history was willing to celebrate religious bigotry, rather than offend the LGBTQ lobby? It wasn't always so.

On October 6, 1965, game one of the Dodgers/ Minnesota World Series began. The Dodgers ace, Sandy Koufax, was expected to pitch, but he was a Jew and the game day fell on Yom Kippur — the day of atonement on the Jewish calendar. Koufax made it clear he could not pitch that day. The manager, Walter O'Malley, went further and said, "I won't let Sandy pitch on Yom Kippur under any circumstances. I can't let the boy do that to himself." So the Dodgers started a less talented pitcher and lost the game, but they won the hearts and minds of their fans and much of America by standing for religious liberty.

The Dodgers have joined those who want to relegate Christianity to the sidelines. But at JDFI, we sense something stirring in America. Christians are beginning to stand up, as the crowd outside Dodgers stadium demonstrated. Only an awakened Church can save America.

Pride before the Fall?

Proverbs 16:18 tells us, "Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall" (NIV). Bud Light and Target learned that lesson last year. Other corporations got the message and scaled back their "Pride" displays last month.

Vote for the Supreme Court?

There are many reasons Christians must vote in record numbers this November. Our country will elect a president, one-third of the Senate, and all 435 seats in the House of Representatives. Supreme Court justices are not elected. The president makes nominations, and then they must receive a majority vote in the Senate.

The Dr. James Dobson Family Institute Decries Yesterday's Attempted Assassination of Former President Donald Trump and Calls for the American People to Pray and Unite

The attempted assassination of our 45th President, Donald J. Trump, and the murder and injuring of his supporters in Butler, PA, were appalling and tragic. Many have described this historical event as surreal, and it does not reflect the America envisioned by our Founding Fathers or the overwhelming majority of the American people.
