Pope Benedict, untouchable

Pope Benedict set off in his Popemobile Wednesday morning for his weekly appearance to some 400,000 adoring (fans?). An excited German man leaped over the barricade to try to touch the pontiff.

In a demonstration of Christ's love (similar to that of when the woman reached out from the crowd to touch Jesus' robe in the New Testament so that she could be healed) the man was immediately wrestled to the ground and sent to a psychiatric hospital for testing.
