Ah, Pope Benny. Never Short On Laughs.

Of all things the Pope has decried
this is a dumb one to deride.
I'm glad the pontiff
hates money. But what if
we knew all that he wants to hide?

The Pope, perched upon his throne and receiving a golden chalice encrusted with precious gems, has decried the "commercial glitter of Christmas". Apparently without a hint of a wry, ironic smile.

He also called for his followers to remember the "essence" of Christmas. Which I suppose would be a return to the old Norse mythologies that brought us the celebrations. This rambling screed has some actual facts in it. Click IF YOU DARE!

The money quote from the Pope's Christmas mass:

"If we want to find the God who appeared as a 
child, then we must dismount from the high horse
of our 'enlightened' reason," he said

Yup. Those of us enlightened souls who use reason to live out our short lives on this rock are just on a "high horse". A perch from which, the Pope proclaims, we must be knocked down.
