Pope Suggests Tweaking Lord's Prayer

Millions of people around the world know the Lord's Prayer and have recited it for centuries.  Now Pope Francis wants to change it up a little bit.  In an interview with Italian television, the Pontiff said he takes issue with the part that reads "lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil."  

Francis said that phrase seems to indicate that it's God who tempts people, but in fact, that's what Satan does.  The prayer is a translation of a translation of a translation and the Pope thinks it could use a tweak.  The Catholic church in France recently changed the words in the French version to "do not let us enter into temptation."
