What Would Jesus Say?

I was going to ignore the Pope's visit; however, today I find I'm not in a turn the other cheek kinda mood.
The Pope came to visit a President responsible for starting a heinous war that is killing and maiming people by the thousands. During his visit he got the red carpet treatment which included singing happy birthday to him, with a big ol' cake. I wonder if the Pope ever had a cake that big back when he was a Nazi Youth member.
Where in the bible is the chapter and verse that justifies this hypocrisy? And, where would I find justification for the vulgar display of power and wealth?
All I can remember is that Jesus tore up the marketplace because of the shady dealings and corruption taking place.
