This is attorney Bill here offering assistance today.

I was looking through your question and some issues need to be addressed in order for me to provide accurate legal information.

Has any criminal action been taken against the church or anything reported to the police ?

What exactly are they threatening to do ?

Are the threats just verbal or have there been physical threats ?

How many instances of slander are they claiming ?

What exactly are they alleging you said ?
