Dodger Legend Clayton Kershaw Calls Out Dodgers for Honoring Anti-Catholic Drag Group

Clayton Kershaw, an all-time great pitcher for the Los Angeles Dodgers, has voiced his dissatisfaction with the team's controversial conduct. At the age of 35, Kershaw, a three-time recipient of the Cy Young Award, was reacting to a contentious decision made by the team to pay homage to a drag group perceived as anti-Catholic.

The Dodgers organization received severe backlash from many quarters following their announcement. One notable critic was Senator Marco Rubio, who expressed heavy criticism of the team for their decision. In response to the widespread censure, the Dodgers rescinded their decision to honor the contentious group, a move that seemed to be the appropriate response given the situation.

However, this decision was short-lived. The organization quickly capitulated to the mounting pressure from left-leaning activists and progressive sportswriters, demonstrating a reversal in their decision. This was perceived as a retreat under pressure from this particular faction, which sparked further controversy and debate.

In what appeared to be a subtle reaction to these events, Kershaw made an announcement of his own. He declared the return of the Christian Faith and Family Day at Dodger Stadium, an event on a hiatus. This move by Kershaw was widely interpreted as a response to the recent tumult within the Dodgers organization and a stand against the team's decisions.

Thus, Kershaw's actions have underlined his stance amidst the upheaval, seemingly suggesting a desire for unity and respect for diverse beliefs within the team and the larger sports community. As this saga unfolds, many eyes will be on the Los Angeles Dodgers to see how they navigate these choppy waters and address the issues raised.

He has now formally affirmed that his announcement was in direct response to the team's timid and inappropriate choices.

“I think we were always going to do Christian Faith Day this year, but I think the timing of our announcement was sped up,” Kershaw said to the Los Angeles Times. “Picking a date and doing those different things was part of it as well. Yes, it was in response to the highlighting of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence [by the Dodgers].”


Kershaw dug a little deeper and revealed why he's against the team honoring the anti-Christian group.

“I don’t agree with making fun of other people’s religions,” Kershaw said. “It has nothing to do with anything other than that. I just don’t think that, no matter what religion you are, you should make fun of somebody else’s religion. So that’s something that I definitely don’t agree with.”

Kershaw expressed his discomfort at viewing videos depicting the conduct of the group in question. Following the team's surrender to the demands of activists, clips began circulating on social media platforms showing members of the group performing dance routines around a crucifix.

Kershaw also revealed that he consulted with his wife, Ellen, and together they concluded that the most effective way to counterbalance the Dodgers' contentious decision was to emphasize what they do endorse. This was their chosen method of response, aimed at highlighting their support for different values.

“For us, we felt like the best thing to do in response was, instead of maybe making a statement condemning or anything like that, would be just to instead try to show what we do support, as opposed to maybe what we don’t,” Kershaw said. “And that was Jesus. So to make Christian Faith Day our response is what we felt like was the best decision.

“This has nothing to do with the LGBTQ community or pride or anything like that,” Kershaw continued. “This is simply a group that was making fun of a religion, that I don’t agree with.”

Kershaw has decided to go through the latter part of his career with year-by-year contracts. Could this move push Kershaw in the direction of pitching for another uniform besides Dodger Blue? That would be rash to suggest, but if this made him angry enough then he could look to move on.
