Democrat Governor Poses with Anti-Christian LGBTQ Group in Resurfaced Photo
A photo of Democrat Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear posing with a local chapter of the anti-Christian LGBTQ activist group Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence has recently resurfaced, spiking tensions between his campaign and the public.
The photo has landed Beshear in hot water on Twitter.
The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, an anti-Catholic group that impersonates & make fun of nuns, are too controversial to be included in the LA Dodgers Pride Night.

Apparently there is a resurfaced photo of Democrat Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear posing with a local chapter of the anti-Christian LGBTQ activist group Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence!
I guess farm animals eventually unite….

And, according to one Twitter user, that’s a bad sign for Democrat political hopes if history is any guide.
Welp, looks like the picture Beshear took with the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence came up in the HD 99 race. Republicans flipped the district, which used to be Rocky Adkins seat. pic.twitter.com/oH63Ra3zvJ

Republican challenger and state Attorney General Daniel Cameron condemned Beshear’s actions, claiming he is “out of touch.”
“This is just another example of how out of touch Andy Beshear is with our values. He’s the governor of Kentucky, not California. The fact that he would host an anti-Christian hate group that makes fun of people of faith is disqualifying for public office. And this November, he’s going to have plenty of free time to hang out with those people, but it won’t be in the state capitol.”
The group is called The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, who refer to themselves as a group of “queer and trans nuns.” The group is known for mocking Christian beliefs, including holding an annual “Foxy Mary” and “Hunky Jesus” costume contest, pole dancing on crosses, and commonly using the phrase “Go forth and sin some more!”
Easter is almost here! Have you decided on your Foxy Mary & Hunky Jesus costumes yet?
The rules are very simple: BE CREATIVE!
Everyone is welcomed to join – just show up behind the stage 30 minutes before the contests (around 2pm-2:30pm) https://t.co/yHMWyhHaZy pic.twitter.com/mgaE6BeKYM

Beshear took the photo with a local chapter of the group in February 2020 during an appearance of his at a pro-LGBTQ rally. The image again came to light after the recent controversy surrounding the anti-Christian group and the Los Angeles Dodgers, who platformed the group to celebrate LGBTQ Pride.
After significant backlash and the Dodgers initially backing off, the baseball team doubled down on their decision to platform the group.

I've helped Catholic sisters feed and clothe the poor in soup kitchens. They do so all over the African continent, or wherever there is the need. This is what the Dodgers are celebrating – obvious in-your-face anti-Catholic bigotry – men rubbing crucifixes on their crotches.… pic.twitter.com/OSnQJr26j6

Even one of the team’s players condemned the move.
“Since I have been with the Dodger’s [sic] they have been at the forefront of supporting a wide variety of groups.. However, inviting the Sister’s [sic] of Perpetual indulgence to perform disenfranchises a large community and promotes hate of Christians and people of faith. This single event alienates the fans and supporters of the Dodgers, Major League Baseball, and professional sports. People like baseball for its entertainment value and competition. The fans do not want propaganda or politics forced on them. The debacle with Bud Light and Target should be a warning to companies and professional sports to stay true to their brand and leave the propaganda and politics off the field…”
