The "leader" of Arcadian Fields Ministries, a church in Cleveland, has been charged with a whopping 74 crimes, including "rape, pandering obscenity of minors and corrupting another with drugs."

His defense?

"I am a pedophile."

Phillip Distasio insists that "having sex with children is a sacred ritual protected by civil rights laws." He goes on to say, "The only reason I'm charged with rape is that no one believes a child can consent to sex. The role of my ministry is to get these cases out of the courtrooms."

Besides the blatant stupidity of this statement, it's further weakened by the fact that all of his victims are either physically or mentally disabled. Some are autistic. And all but one of them has been under 13 years old.

Apparently, Distasio initially pushed for his court-appointed lawyer to pursue a religious freedom defense. He then tried to fire the guy when the lawyer refused. As a result, Distasio is now acting as his own lawyer, his former attorney remaining as an adviser.

I can't believe anybody in their right mind would believe that it is somehow morally acceptable to have sex with kids, let alone kids that are mentally and physically handicapped. Talk about taking terrible advantage of a situation. Fortunately, if convicted on any of the seven rape charges, Distasio will be automatically sentenced to life in prison without parole.

Lock this guy up and try to get him some help, 'cause this is one sick fuck.

Norah Jones - Feels Like Home
(and she still manages a great follow up)

Massive Attack - Unleashed
(Jet Li may break your head, but the Massive boys will chill you out)

Pinataland - Songs From Konijn Kok

Miles Davis - Kind Of Blue
