Defamation case

An anti-porn campaigner has sued a blogger who claimed she was hiding her connections to a fundamentalist Christian church. Liberal blogger Jennifer Wilson has been told that she must apologise to Melinda Tankard Reist for calling her a  ''fundamentalist Christian'' or be sued.

Reist  said that it is not being dubbed a Christian that she objects to, but the claim that she is ''deceptive and duplicitous about her religious beliefs''. She has hired Canberra defamation lawyer Ric Lucas, who once represented Opposition Leader Tony Abbott, former treasurer Peter Costello and their wives in a successful action against publisher Random House over false claims in a memoir by Bob Ellis.

The defiant blogger, who goes by the nom de plume No Place For Sheep, said she would continue to make strong criticisms of Tankard Reist. Wilson said that someone who makes public comment about morality really needs to be upfront about where they are coming from.'

Reist, whose resume includes advising anti-abortion senator Brian Harradine, does not want to discuss her links to evangelical Baptism. Wilson pointed out that Reist's involvement with fundamentalist Christians, who oppose abortion, contraception, surrogacy and homosexuality, are well documented.
