Man Says Sex With Kids a Sacred Ritual

CLEVELAND -- A man accused of sexually assaulting nine boys with physical or mental disabilities told a judge that having sex with children is a sacred ritual protected by civil rights laws.
Phillip Distasio, who said he is the leader of a church called Arcadian Fields Ministries, represented himself at his pretrial hearing Wednesday. He is charged with 74 counts including rape, pandering obscenity to minors and corrupting another with drugs.
"I'm a pedophile. I've been a pedophile for 20 years," he said in Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court Wednesday. "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."
Distasio said some of his congregants are among the victims in this case. Distacio, of Rocky River, is accused of molesting two disabled boys he tutored at his home and raping seven autistic boys at a Cleveland school for special-needs students where he was a teacher's aide. All but one of the victims were under 13.

Throw him in general population. I predict that he will meet God there.
Sounds good to me...let's take them to the shooting range.
As a pro-lifer, I am opposed to the death penalty. However, I will make an exeption here. I hereby offer my services and volunteer to pull the switch on the electric chair for this NAMBLA psychopath.
Autistic children at that. This guy's a real piece of work.
Throw him in with the general population and he won't meet God save briefly, but he will meet the leader of his faux religion--carrying a pitchfork.
This guy is a very special kind of freak.
I hope he enjoys his stay in prison!
"Hi, ma name is Bubba. You sure ar pretty. Bend over for me!"
Carlo, I agree with you! The scary thing is how many years will it be before the courts agree with this piece of trash?
when has rape ever been consentual? lock this man up
Another product of runaway twisted liberalism.
I see satan is well at work here....
This is just sickening!!
Ann's going to need to update her book already.
It won't be long before courts support this guy, and he is portrayed as a victim.
Looks like NAMBLA found their chaplain...
"Looks like NAMBLA found their chaplain..."
And the ACLU too.
After all the you can't find a stronger backer of NAMBLA than the ACLU.
Shoot this man swiftly.
As far as I'm concerned, finding and killing child molesters is a sacred ritual.
