COLORADO SPRINGS, COLORADO: Donald Trump's former senior legal adviser, Jenna Ellis, is being blasted after her commentary about the mass shooting at Colorado gay club, Club Q. Twenty-two-year-old Anderson Lee Aldrich carried out a mass shooting on Saturday, November 19, on the eve of The Transgender Day of Remembrance at Colorado gay club, Club Q. Five people died in the attack, which now is being investigated as a hate crime.

Aldrich, who is in police custody at present, was tackled by at least two heroic patrons. Besides the five people who died, another 25 were reportedly injured. Aldrich had previously been arrested in June 2021 for a bomb threat, but they were never formally charged.

Ellis, in an episode of her podcast 'The Jenna Ellis Show' this week, said the victims of the tragic shooting would suffer “eternal damnation” because, in her eyes, they were not Christians. “Even more tragic than untimely death is that the five people who were killed in the nightclub that night, there is no evidence at all that they were Christians,” the far-right attorney said. “And so assuming that they had not accepted the truth of the Gospel of Christ and affirmed Jesus Christ as the lord of their life, they are now reaping the consequences of having eternal damnation.”

Ellis has been slammed for her anti-LGBTQ remarks on previous occasions too. For instance, in one 2017 Facebook post recorded by Media Matters, she wrote, "Whether or not homosexuals are nice, wise people, or misunderstood, or mean is not the issue. … Sin is always sin, even if nice people commit it.”

Ellis is facing furious backlash on social media following her comments on the Club Q shooting, with one user saying, "I can’t wait for Jenna to meet her maker and find out she was 100% wrong about everything." "Jesus weeps at such hatred and judgment preached in his name," said another user. One wrote, "This is where we are America. This is not the 1st tweet I’ve read from an evangelical who blames the victims for being LGBTQI+ instead of accepting Jesus as straight people like they have."

"She is so certain in her cruelty it takes you breath away. Innocent people have died and she is forecasting the fires of hell to grieving family and friends. What ministers are teaching this hate? Christianity looks worse and worse," one user wrote. At the same time, another said, "It’s rhetoric like this that makes me think that a dystopian society as depicted in “The Handmaid's Tale” could actually happen." "Does she know that some LGBTQ people are Christians? Does she also know that God commands us to love them too!" said one user.
