Ted Nugent Targets An LGBT Event, Saying ‘That Is Satanism’

In a recent appearance on Newsmax’s ‘Eric Bolling The Balance,’ Ted Nugent attacked the Los Angeles Dodgers for inviting the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, an organization known for its LGBTQ+ activism, to a Pride Night event on June 16.

During his interview, Ted Nugent slammed the decision-makers involved, charging them with engaging in Satanism:

“These decision-makers are rock solid in the liability column for mankind. This is pure runaway evilThat is Satanism. When you attack Christ, when you attack religious people who abide by the Ten Commandments, the Golden Rule, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and all that radical stuff, you are literally on the side of pure evil.”

The rocker continued his criticism by targeting certain institutions:

“Satan has his foot in the American door right now. He’s got the president; he’s got the vice president; he’s got almost everybody in the Democrat party and the Republican party; they’ve got the DOJ, the CDC, the FDA, the USDA — literally evil controls the majority, if not all, of Uncle Sam right now.”

He finally added, addressing what he believes in:

“So, once again, this is an experiment in self-government. I’m just a guitar player, but everybody who works for me in government knows exactly what this guitar player believes in. It’s God, family, country, ConstitutionBill of Rights, being the best that you can be, law and order. And these perverts are literally doing the evil deeds of Satan. It’s so obvious; even guitar players can figure it out.”

When the Dodgers announced that they had decided to include this well-known San Francisco order, which has been there since the 1970s, some conservative Roman Catholics and politicians reacted strongly as they believed the group was making fun of nuns and the Christian faith.

In reaction to the controversy, the Dodgers initially indicated that they would not feature the group during Pride Night festivities but eventually changed course in the face of outrage from LGBTQ+ groups around the country and issued the following statement:

“After much thoughtful feedback from our diverse communities, honest conversations within the Los Angeles Dodgers organization, and generous discussions with the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, the Los Angeles Dodgers would like to offer our sincerest apologies to the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, members of the LGBTQ+ community and their friends and families.

We have asked the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence to take their place on the field at our 10th annual LGBTQ+ Pride Night on June 16. We are pleased to share that they have agreed to receive the gratitude of our collective communities for the lifesaving work that they have done tirelessly for decades…”

Acknowledging the apology, the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence also released a statement, saying:

“This morning, our Abbess, Sister Dominia, and another board member, Sister Bearonce Knows, met with the Dodgers president and CEO Stan Kasten. A full apology and explanation were given to us by the Dodgers staff, which we accept. May the games be blessed!”
