Hours after a Yale Divinity School graduate posted a blog offering a plot in a Hamden cemetery to the family of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev a protest is being planned.

On Monday, Paul Keane, who now lives in Vermont, wrote in his blog "The Anti Yale" that he would like to "donate a burial plot next to my mother in Mt. Carmel Burying Ground to the Tsarnaev family if they cannot obtain a plot." 

Family members of deceased buried at the cemetery said they are upset and plan to gather at Mt. Carmel Cemetery and hold a protest at 3:30 p.m.

Keane's family owns four plots in the Central Burying Grounds on Whitney Avenue, according to reports. His parents are buried in two of the plots, while the other two remain empty.

Keane wrote on Monday that the only condition is he offers the plot is "in memory of my mother who taught Sunday School at the Mt. Carmel Congregational Church for twenty years and taught me to 'love thine enemy'."

When NBC Connecticut called Keane on Tuesday, he said his only comment is" "Love thine enemy."
