FBI investigating explosion, graffiti at California church known for anti-LGBT views

The pastor of the First Works Baptist Church has drawn condemnation.

The FBI and local authorities are investigating an explosion and vandalism at a church in Southern California known for its controversial pastor and his anti-LGBT views.

The First Works Baptist Church in El Monte, California, just east of downtown Los Angeles, was shaken by a blast in the early morning hours Saturday, according to the FBI. When responding to the scene just after 1 a.m. local time there was smoke coming out of the windows and the outside of the church was covered with graffiti, the Los Angeles County Fire Department said.

"It appeared that the walls to the church had been vandalized as well as all the windows," El Monte police Lt. Christopher Cano told reporters Saturday. "[The windows] appeared at first to be smashed, then we realized that the windows were not smashed, that they had actually blown out from some type of explosion."

The FBI referred to the explosion as an "IED attack" and said bomb technicians were on the scene investigating.

No one was injured in the blast, police said.

The First Works Baptist Church and its pastor, Bruce Mejia, has developed a reputation for inflammatory language, labeled by many as hate speech. The Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks hate groups, labeled First Works Baptist Church a hate group in 2019 for its anti-LGBT stance.

An online petition calling for the mayor of El Monte to force the First Works Baptist Church out of the city has garnered over 15,000 signatures.

In reports and on social media, Mejia strongly opposes gay marriage. He also has used his social media accounts to repeatedly mock President Joe Biden and is strongly opposed to vaccinations, regularly sharing memes dismissing the COVID-19 vaccine.
