UPDATE 1 (3.07pm): Our American web host SiteGround effectively tells me to reconstruct our Church and State website with a new WordPress theme? "As I mentioned before we cannot specify why exactly your application started spawning these slow queries.

If you would like to help us personally, please feel free to pick up one of our books (shameless plug, I know, but every sale helps us to work our way out of our precarious situation). There is currently five books available in Church and State Press here, and all proceeds from the first four of these books go to us with the authors' permission. Thank you all for all the support you have given us, and I hope we can keep our Church and State website going despite the constant threats.
