ABC News reports:
The FBI and local police are investigating an explosion early Saturday at a Los Angeles-area church that had been the target of protests for its anti-LGTBQ message.
No injuries were reported, FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller said. FBI technicians are working with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department bomb squad and the El Monte Police Department during the initial investigation, Eimiller said.
Protestors have repeatedly targeted the church headed by Pastor Bruce Mejia, who has condemned same-sex relationships. A statement on it website says: “We believe that homosexuality is a sin and an abomination which God punishes with the death penalty.”
