An Ohio man and his son are using the Bible to defend themselves in court against multiple charges of rape, kidnapping, and endangering children.

Via the Washington Post, the Toledo Blade reports that 53-year-old Timothy Ciboro and his son, 28-year-old Esten Ciboro, have been allowed to use the Bible as their main piece of evidence to defend themselves against accusations that they kidnapped and raped underage girls at their home in Toledo, Ohio over the span of several years.

“There’s a great deal of strategy in Scripture and I use those strategies in everything I do,” Esten Ciboro told the court last week when explaining why he and his father should be allowed to use the Bible in court as part of their defense.

Ciboro, who is acting as his own attorney in conjunction with his father, also called the Bible “the only law book that truly matters.”

Lucas County Common Pleas Judge Linda Jennings said that she would allow the two men to use the Bible during their trial, so long as they didn’t use it question witnesses.

“It’s the court’s opinion that while the Bible is very important, it is not a law book in a court of law,” she told the men.

The two Ciboros were arrested last May after Esten Cibro’s 13-year-old stepsister escaped from their basement and told police that she had been kidnapped and repeatedly raped by both men for more than a year.

The fake Village People made a surprise appearance on "Saturday Night Live" to tell President Donald Trump to stop using their music at his rallies or they'll shave Ivanka Trump's head.

"If you have been watching the Trump rallies, you probably noticed Trump dancing to The Village People," said Colin Jost during the Weekend Update segment. "If you haven't, let's take a look."

He explained that the Village People had their own special message for the president. The group of SNL cast members came out dressed in traditional Village People outfits and sang their cease and desist for the president.

SNL does campaign ad asking what they’ll do without Trump to trash — then they have a revelation

Published

"What is the news even going to be about now?" the Saturday Night Life cast joked, saying that without President Donald Trump.

The fake ad began saying that everyone knows it could be the most important election of our lives.

"And the two choices couldn't be more different," the ad continues. "Do we want four more years of Donald Trump or a fresh start with Joe Biden? Can we survive four more years of scandal, name-calling, and racial division? Or do we want a leader who unites the country? I want to vote for Biden because he's better, smarter. better and better."

But, the cast members confessed, "I'm worried, because if Donald Trump isn't president -- when what are they going to talk about? Like, what would our conversations even be? Because the only thing I talked about for four years is Donald Trump. Every single day I tell someone, 'Can you believe what Trump just said?' My entire personality is hating Donald Trump. If he's gone, what am I supposed to do? Focus on my kids again? No thanks. He changed the game. He called the attorney general he appointed mentally retarded. That's some next-level sh*t!"

Saturday Night Live’s Trump claims his secret COVID-19 plan is ‘under audit just like my taxes’

Published

"Saturday Night Live" began this week's show with a recap of the presidential debate showing President Donald Trump confusing Kirsten Welker with Hoda Kotb, Mindy Lahiri, and at one point, even a waitress.

Alec Baldwin explained that the coronavirus loved him so much that it didn't want to leave his body because it was so beautiful.

He also explained that he couldn't share his coronavirus plan because it was still under audit like his taxes.

Jim Cary toned down his portrayal of Joe Biden from last week's over-the-top yell-fest.

"Learning to live with it? We're learning to die with it, man!" said the fake Biden, quoting the real Biden, but with a glint of Clint Eastwood.
