Chofetz Chaim Daily 6 Nissan 8:5 Mitzvah to say LH about a known apikores (one who denies anything of written or oral law) The Poskim say that a Tinok Shenishba has a Halacha of a regular Jew and no LH should be said about him, unless it is LeToeles with all the conditions. 8:6 If its a rumor, you can suspect and stay away, but do not believe it until you see it yourself or otherwise verify it. 8:7 Same laws above 8:5 apply for a rasha. Here again the Halachos are different for a Tinok Shenishba.
Chofetz Chaim Daily 7 Nissan 8:8 Some permit LH about baalei machlokes to cause those at fault to stop fighting, IF 1. you have good intentions & not hate 2. no other way to stop it 3. you’re certain this party is the guilty one. 8:9 There is a cherem against saying LH about dead people, especially Torah scholars & their teachings.
