Hundreds of protesters of various religious faiths gathered together to demonstrate against the Los Angeles Dodgers baseball team's decision to honor an anti-Christian drag queen organization.
The team initially caved to backlash against their decision to honor the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence with a Community Heroes award on their Pride Night, but they later
to the group and re-invited them.
The group organizes blasphemous and grotesque performances meant to insult Catholics and other Christians as a form of protest against religious objections to the LGBTQ agenda.
On Friday, hundreds showed up to criticize the Dodgers for re-inviting the group, and the demonstration quickly grew to include thousands,
to Fox News.
"We're just here, all the faiths are standing united, all the different denominations, even Catholics, Christians, we're just all united for our love of Christ," said protester Jesse Holguin to KTLA-TV.
"We're very angry that the Dodgers invited this group that mock our lord and savior, Jesus Christ," he added.
The demonstration included some speakers,
a Jewish rabbi, and public prayer. More than a thousand protesters reportedly marched in a procession to the front of Dodger Stadium.

Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw, an outspoken Christian, said he
to the decision by the team and divulged that they had scheduled a "Christian Faith and Family Day" at the stadium in order to appease those offended by the anti-Christian drag queen group.
At least one LGBTQ group accused those objecting to the Dodgers' decision as being
with white supremacy.
"We're hoping that the Dodgers will see the amount of Catholics and Christians that are showing up here today, peacefully, and showing that we're not budging," added protester Anthony Rodriguez. "We're drawing a line in the sand, and we're putting our faith first."
