Anti-LGBT Church in California Was Bombed


The El Monte Police Department is investigating the bombing of First Works Baptist Church early this morning. According to preliminary information, there are no casualties.

Local authorities received reports of a fire in the church at around 4:30 am. FBI officers and agents who arrived at the scene confirmed that an unknown explosive device was the cause of the fire and the broken windows.

Examining the building, no other explosive charges were found.

Law enforcement agencies are still at a loss to name the suspects. Previously, the church was besieged by LGBT protesters.


“We don’t have any information leading us to believe that the demonstrators in the past are in any way responsible for this,” El Monte Police Chief David Reynoso told The Washington Post.

According to police reports, the explosion was so powerful that windows in neighboring buildings were also shattered.

The City of El Monte Mayor Jessica Ancona has called for an investigation.

Protest organizers Keep El Monte Friendly have denied involvement in the attack.
