I love that Pope Benedict XVI called on his followers to embrace the "essence" of Christmas while turning away from "the superficial glitter" of the holiday while wearing clothes made of gold and carrying a gold scepter encrusted with diamond and rubies after unveiling a huge (23 feet tall, 82 feet wide) elaborate nativity scene. The cognitive disconnect would be funny if the guy wasn't the leader of a religion with billions of adherents.
