Bomb threat to Catholic school over same-sex marriage announcements

California woman charged

by Mike Andrew - SGN Staff Writer

A California woman has been charged with threatening to bomb, burn, and kill people at Georgetown Visitation Preparatory School, a Catholic all-girls high school in Washington, DC.

Sonia Tabizada pleaded not guilty on January 3 to federal charges of obstructing religious exercise by threat, and transmitting bomb threats in interstate commerce, according to court records.

Tabizada has been in custody since her arrest and faces a January 21 detention review hearing before U.S. District Judge Carl J. Nichols in DC.

According to court documents, a nun and a school administrator received threats to bomb the school and kill nuns only two days after the school announced plans to include information about same-sex weddings in its alumnae magazine.

The elite private girls' school is owned and operated by the Roman Catholic Church but decided that it would begin including news of former students' same-sex unions in its alumnae magazine.

The decision was announced on May 13, 2019, and on May 15 threats began.

"We reached this decision as a school and Monastery leadership after much prayerful consideration and thoughtful dialogue," the school said in an open letter to the community.

Prosecutors say Tabizada left a message early the morning of May 15 saying that "sinners" have to "be separate," that the school should remove Gay people from the magazine, and that she would burn and bomb the church.

A minute later, prosecutors say, she called back.

"I'm gonna fucking blow up the school and call it a mission from God," she is charged with saying.

Tabizada is not a graduate of the school, a school representative said. A judge ordered her held in jail until court proceedings begin.
