Popular online media personality and former pastor Larry Reid says the House of Hope Atlanta took legal action that silenced him for weeks after he interviewed a woman who claims she was threatened for reporting a rape that church officials allegedly have been trying to cover up for the last four years.

“Please take this notice as an official request to immediately comply with the orders of the court entered in Fulton and Dekalb Counties by Judge Edmond Adams and Judge Seeliger,” began a message Reid said he received in early September from the church’s lawyer, Quinton Washington, along with two subpoenas to appear in court.

“We will have two hearings on September 11, 2019 unless we reach settlement beforehand. You are not to speak about these matters to anyone and must bring all materials requested in the subpoenas. Further, as we have spoken before and you have not heeded my advice please immediately take down all of the information as the Court orders. Please understand this is not a request these are orders by TWO different Superior Court judges.”
