Joe.My.God, 23 Nov 2022: Jenna Ellis: Club Q Shooter’s Victims Are Now In Hell
Are these people contemptible, despicable…? Or just….sad?
The last two about Jenna Ellis are just pitiful. Imagine people so self-absorbed, so presumptuous, so hateful, so unlike… Jesus, that they assume the religion they were born into just happens, out of all the religions of all the cultures on Earth (never mind potential cultures on other planets in this *enormous* universe), to be the one correct one, to the extent that she assumes that anyone not part of her tribe/cult are condemned to Hell, damned forever to her imaginary fire and brimstone. Anyone not of her tribe/religion is barely human, an other, a barbarian.
Sad, yes, despicable, yes. But she and her like vote too.
