A California woman has admitted to threatening to bomb the nation’s oldest Catholic school for girls — after the school’s alumni magazine said it planned to feature same-sex wedding announcements, federal prosecutors said.
Sonia Tabizada, 36, left two menacing voicemails with the Georgetown Visitation Preparatory School in Washington, DC, in May 2019 after learning of the announcements, stating that “we are all children of God … worthy of respect and love,” federal prosecutors said.
Tabizada threatened to kill school officials and students in one message before calling several minutes later to say she intended to blow up the school and commit “terrorism,” court documents show.
One threatened to kill students if the magazine didn’t remove “gay motherf—-s,” the Washington Post reported.
“The defendant made violent threats against high school students, religious leaders, and school officials based solely on her disagreement with a private school’s application of religious doctrine,” Eric Drieband, assistant attorney general for the Civil Rights Division, said
