Trans activists slam 'radical religious schools' in response to Nashville mass ... trends now
Trans activists are demanding the end of the 'love affair' of 'radical religious schools' in a response to the Nashville mass shooting, in which they appear to shift the blame away from twisted killer, Audrey Hale, 28.
Eli Erlick, who recently boasted about providing illegal cross-sex hormones to children in Mississippi, posted a tweet on Tuesday alongside pictures of an article, which detail alleged child abuse at the Covenant School, where Hale opened fire.
Erlick described the school, at which three nine-year-old's and three adults were gunned down by a deranged Hale, as 'a right-wing institution' - claiming the killer had 'been abused' with 'many others.'
Veronica 'Nikatine' Ripley, another trans activist, reposted the tweet and called to ban 'radical unregulated religious schools' slamming 'conservatives love affair' those institutions.
No claims of abuse against the 28-year-old have been substantiated at this stage although police have called the grisly attack 'targeted' and that Hale most likely held 'resentment for having to go to that school.'

Erlick tweeted: 'As we learn more, It's clear the Nashville Covenant School is a right-wing institution in which Audrey Hale and many others were abused.
'Obviously, this isn't an excuse to attack it. But there are problems with deregulating religious schools + the US's lack of mental healthcare.'
Erlick followed the initial post with an explanation of the articles they'd based their comments on saying: 'Istoria Ministries has a long article on how the church abused numerous students and then severely harassed a church leader for reporting them.'
'The Church even claimed he was a potential shooter. All of this happened while Audrey Hale attended the school.'
One twitter user questioned how Erlick knew that Hale had been at the school during the alleged abuse, but did not receive a response: 'What is the source on Hale being there at this same time?'
Another user slammed Erlick saying: 'Sounds like you're excusing it to me.'
'Nashville shooting was a hate crime from a transgender against a Christian school. Media stop being a cowards and report it as you would if it was against Asians, Blacks, or any other politically popular narratives,' said another user.
Meanwhile, another user talked to the 'easy access to very powerful weapons.'
Hale's LinkedIn profile suggested they were now living as a man
'You are trying to get into the mind of a killer I see no point in that, the problem is the easy access to very powerful weapons,' they wrote.
Ripley reposted Erlick's tweet and said: 'A lot of things need to happen in the wake of this terrible Nashville tragedy, but certainly the conservative love affair with radical unregulated religious 'schools' should come to an end.
'They try destroying public schools any chance they get, but here we are.'
Hale began her attack on Monday morning, driving into the school parking lot shortly before 10am.
At around 10.13am, Hale opened fire at The Covenant School, shooting and killing Evelyn Dieckhaus, Hallie Scruggs and William Kinney, all aged nine.
Substitute teacher Cynthia Peak, 61, head of school Dr. Katherine Koonce, 60, and custodian Mike Hill, 61, were also killed.
Koonce worked alongside her daughter Anna at The Covenant School, who serves as a faculty/student assistant.
Within 14 minutes, Hale was dead, as Nashville police revealed photos of the two officers - Rex Engelbart and Michael Collazo - who shot and killed Hale.
