Today's "Keep Your Children Away From Ohio Libraries" update courtesy Phillip Distasio, 34, of Rocky River, Ohio. Distasio, who claims to be a pagan friar and the leader of a church called Arcadian Fields ministry, is facing 74 charges of rape, drugs, and pandering obscenity to minors.

Defending himself, Distasio admitted to being a pedophile for some 20 years. His defense centers around his belief "that his apartment was a religious sanctuary where smoking marijuana and having sex with children are sacred rituals protected by civil rights laws." He also feels that "(t)he 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."

And now for the typically Ohio part of the story, "Distasio was arrested after he wanted to write a blog for the Lakewood Library. Officials noticed something was wrong and notified Rocky River police."

No word yet if Distasio is also a Buckeyes fan.
