Toronto nativity scene vandalized for fifth time in six years |

TORONTO, November 29, 2012, ( – Vandals in Toronto attacked and damaged the nativity scene placed in front of Toronto’s Old City Hall courthouse by Gethsemane Ministries, a Catholic lay movement.

Suresh Dominic, founder and head of Gethsemane Ministries, told that the display had been set up on Sunday, but on Wednesday morning it they discovered that someone had smashed the plexiglass window of the display and decapitated a lamb figurine.

The nativity scene was also vandalized in 2010, as pictured above. “It is disappointing to see the intolerance toward Christianity in our city,” Dominic remarked. “I hope Canadians will realize that this hatred destroys the joy and peace that everyone looks for in this season.”

“This is a time of joy and peace, as you see the entire city of Toronto gearing up for this Christmas season, and this ruins everyone’s peace,” he said.

The nativity scene set up by Gethsemane Ministries for the past six years has been vandalized every year with the exception of 2011.
