Woman Arrested for Threats to Bomb School That Supports Gay Alumni

Sonia Tabizada allegedly told a nun she was "going to hell."

She doesn’t even go here.

A California woman has been indicted on federal charges for allegedly making threats via voicemails to an all-girls Catholic high school in Washington, D.C., NBC 4 Washington reports.

According to court documents, Sonia Tabizada was upset that Georgetown Visitation Preparatory School’s alumni magazine planned to include announcements about the same-sex unions of former students in its next issue. The school’s president emeritus had announced the decision in a letter to alumni that was also published in The Washington Post.

“The Church is clear in its teaching on same-sex marriages,” wrote Sister Mary Berchmans Hannan in May. “But, it is equally clear in its teaching that we are all children of God, that we each have dignity and are worthy of respect and love.”

Tabizada reportedly told Georgetown Visitation Prep administrators to “remove the fucking gay motherfuckers from your magazine or I’m going to fucking kill your kids.”

“I’m gonna fucking blow up the school and call it a mission from God,” she added. “That’s a promise.”

Voicemail transcripts also show that Tabizada told Sister Mary Berchmans Hannan she was “straight from hell, and is going to hell—she’s seducing innocent eyes. She’s not helping the cause of Jesus. She’s accepting sinners—they have to be separate.”

Tabizada is charged with obstructing religious exercise by threat and transmitting bomb threats in interstate commerce.

She pleaded not guilty to all charges, which were filed in a California federal court but transferred to D.C., and will remain in custody until her court hearing later this month.

A Georgetown Visitation Prep representative confirmed that Tabizada had not graduated from the school.
