Christian Radio Host Threatens to Sue His Own Daughters

Vic Eliason is the host and owner of the radio show Crosstalk on VCY America, a chain of Christian radio stations. His daughter Ingrid used to work for him, but she left in 2011 and said “the mafia crime families have nothing on ‘Christian ministry.’” Now Vic is threatening to sue her and another daughter for some unspecified defamation.

My sister called tonight and asked if I’d checked the mail. I hadn’t. Vic Eliason, our father, is threatening to sue us for attempting to get this shameful situation into biblical mediation with Peacemakers. He is characterizing all we have spoken, the truth, as defamation.

Go ahead and sue us, daddy. Tom and Russ who already both work two jobs to make ends meet can work even harder because of your evil pride. You can sue us for our old couch with holes in it, our old cars we try to keep running, and you can have our medical bills we are currently making payments on. Tom’s been trying to sell a car to make our house taxes this year. You can take your granddaughter, Emmy’s bed if you have to. Or maybe her toys? You could sue for her dolls, I suppose.

But don’t let that stop you, Vic. Go ahead and sue Lisa and Russ who are trying to help two kids, your grandchildren, in college simultaneously with two still at home while you took Russ’s job away. You can take their little ranch house, you can take their well-used cars as well and continue driving your late model, company paid for Suburban.

I was in broadcasting for 24 years and understand libel and slander. Never once in those years was I sued for making false statements about anything. I could back up what I claimed. Likewise, we can back up what we have claimed about Vic’s sinful and wicked behavior towards his own children and grandchildren.

She reprints the one-page letter she received, which contains nothing specific about what this “defamation” of Eliason’s “character and reputation” might be. In fact, it only refers to someone else having threatened to make public things Ingrid said in private. Eliason = scumbag.

    Eliason = scumbag.

    Let’s see … “Radio Evangelist” … yep, right there in the job description!

    I’ll be very interested to see if he can actually get someone like, you know, a lawyer to sign off on that as a basis for defamation. Especially after he utters the magic word, “discovery.”

    By the way, is Ingrid by any chance a resident of a State with an anti-SLAPP statute?

    1. Where there is smoke, there is fire. In this case, there are also flashing neon lights and sky rockets going off.

    It is very rare for kids of the vaguely humanoid toads to say anything. After all, they get their share of the loot and it is a lot, hundreds of millions of dollars sometimes.

    It’s also rare for parents to go after their kids with lawyers.

    2. I’m guessing based on the above, that Vic Eliason has a few skeletons in his closet. Enough to field a football team with. He seems to be very afraid that…some unpleasant and possibly criminal truths might come out. It is all very…xian.

    Sort of like Larry Klayman, the dumbest lawyer in America not named Matt Staver or Orly Taitz suing his mother.

    “Radio Evangelist” can be rearranged to spell “a revolting ideas” or “variegated loins”.

    It seems Ingrid has lots of support, not only from all the other members of her family except Vic Eliason (and perhaps his wife, but I wouldn’t bet on it) but from the community as well.

    As for Crosstalk, it attracts some interesting guests. Per Rightwingwatch, they include Phyllis Schafly (hawking her new book Who Killed the American Family?), Mat Staver, Peter LaBarbera, and Larry Pratt — who accuses president Obama of recruiting a “Praetorian Guard” of undocumented immigrants.

    The name of the radio show obviously refers to the Christian cross; but its opposite meaning of “angry words” fits better.

    Well, this Ingrid Eliason seems like a most excellent and righteous woman, that letter was beautifully scathing.

  • Mobius

    …biblical mediation with Peacemakers…

    And this is different from a Sharia court how?
