More child porn, luring charges against Toronto teacher

  More child porn, luring charges against Toronto teacher Toronto police have laid more charges against a Toronto Catholic District School Board teacher who was arrested earlier this fall on child porn and luring charges. Gerard McGilly, 46, was originally arrested in October and charged with luring a child under 18, sexual exploitation, making sexually explicit material available to a person under 18, making child pornography, possessing child pornography, and accessing child pornography.McGilly was out on bail when he was arrested again on Nov. 30 after two people came forward with allegations that were “sexual in nature,” Det.

In May, Pope Francis told a group of reporters that celibacy is 'a gift for the church, but since it is not a dogma, the door is always open.' Did not Our Lord say that, “God is not the god of the dead but of the living”? If the Pope did change the discipline it would not shake my faith though.

Pope Francis wants the faithful to lose the desire for pre-Vatican II anything….God bless, C-Marie. The OLD Testament WORD of the LORD GOD, is: “My house shall be called a HOUSE OF PRAYER for all people.”

The Pope has revealed he wants to change the Lord's Prayer - as he thinks the current version implies that God pushes people toward sin.

He said the line "lead us not into temptation", memorised by hundreds of millions of Christians for centuries, is based on a flawed translation.

"It is not a good translation because it speaks of a God who induces temptation," the Pope said.

The implication is awkward for Christians, who believe it is Satan who tempts people to sin.

"I am the one who falls. It's not him pushing me into temptation to then see how I have fallen," the Pope explained.

Mother to launch complaint after Toronto teacher allegedly compares son to a 'crackhead'

  Mother to launch complaint after Toronto teacher allegedly compares son to a 'crackhead' A Toronto mother says she plans to file a formal complaint after a substitute teacher at an elementary school allegedly made a racist remark to her 11-year-old son. It's been more than a week since Abigail Francis's son Isaiah, a Grade 6 student, was stunned by the response from the teacher at Norman Cook Public School. It began like any other English assignment. Isaiah and his class had been assigned a poetry exercise called, "All the places we love" on Nov. 28. He didn't quite understand the assignment, and asked the teacher for clarification. The alleged response left him speechless, according to his mother.

I think we should understand it in the same light that explains the initial decision to celebrate this Mass in a youth prison: Pope Francis wants to reach @Traditio: Alone time with the Lord is both through prayer and meditation on His word. Do we surrender ourselves daily to Him and in what He desires?

Pope wants to change ‘ Lord ’ s Prayer ’ as it implies God ‘induces temptation’. POPE Francis has called for the Lord ’ s prayer to be changed – arguing that the translation used by many parts of the world goes against the teachings of the Bible.

"A father doesn't do that, a father helps you to get up immediately. It's Satan who leads us into temptation, that's his department."

The Pope's comments, made in an interview with Italian television, could lead to a change in the prayer, which is taken from the Bible and is considered by some to encapsulate the core messages of Christianity.

The current version has been used by the Catholic Church since 1966, when the Second Vatican Council decided modern vernacular should be used in services instead of Latin.

Before being translated from the Latin vulgate it was translated from ancient Greek. The original text was written in Aramaic, the language spoken by Jesus.

Question marks over the temptation line are not new in Christian liturgical debate.

Pope Francis has called for a translation of a phrase about temptation in the Lord ’ s Prayer to be changed . The current wording that says “lead us not into temptation” is not a good translation, because God does not lead humans to sin, he says.

Pope Francis is something of a revolutionary, papally speaking. He's politically outspoken, he's implored the Catholic Church to welcome divorcees and the gay community — and now, BBC reports, he wants to change the Lord ' s Prayer .

The Catholic Church in France voted to last month to change to a translation approximating "do not let us enter into temptation", and Church of latter-day saints uses the adapted line "suffer us not to be led into temptation".
