In a statement released Wednesday, the Dodgers said the team would no longer honor the group after learning that it had become a source of controversy.
"This year, as part of a full night of programming, we invited a number of groups to join us. We are now aware that our inclusion of one group in particular — the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence — in this year's Pride Night has been the source of some controversy," the team said in a statement. "Given the strong feelings of people who have been offended by the sisters' inclusion in our evening, and in an effort not to distract from the great benefits that we have seen over the years of Pride Night, we are deciding to remove them from this year's group of honorees."
Those darn Dodgers.
