Blake Treinen, a Dodgers relief pitcher, opposed the team's plan to invite the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence to Pride Night later this month.
Treinen criticized the team's June 16 honoring of the "queer and trans nuns" on Twitter.
“I believe Jesus Christ died on the cross for my sins,” Treinen stated in the statement posted by Christian artist and friend Sean Feucht.
“I believe the Bible is true, and Galatians 6:7 says, ‘do not be deceived, God cannot be mocked; a man reaps what he sows.’”
“This group openly mocks Jesus Christ, the cornerstone of my faith, and I want to make it clear that I do not agree with nor support the Dodger’s decision to ‘honor’ the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence,” Treinen said.
"I don’t agree with making fun of other people’s religions," Kershaw added. Nothing else matters. No of your religion, you shouldn't mock another's. I disagree with that."
“To invite and honor a group that makes a blatant and deeply offensive mockery of my religion, and the religion of over 4 million people in Los Angeles county alone,
undermines the values of respect and inclusivity that should be upheld by any organization,” said Catholic Washington Nationals pitcher Trevor Williams.
