Dodgers scratch award for drag queens dressed like nuns after Catholic backlash

The team announced earlier this month that it would present its “Community Hero Award” to

the L.A. chapter of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, a self-described “order of queer and trans nuns” founded in San Francisco in 1979. The about-face came after CatholicVote, the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio sent letters to Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred asking him to square the decision with his previous vow to “keep ourselves as apolitical as possible.”
