The Pope Must Be Senile

The Pope visited Auschwitz and the following is what he is reported to have said.

“’In a place like this, words fail. In the end, there can only be a dread silence, a silence which is a heartfelt cry to God — Why, Lord, did you remain silent? How could you tolerate all this?

“’Where was God in those days? Why was he silent? How could he permit this endless slaughter, this triumph of evil?’”

“Humans could not “’peer into God’s mysterious plan” to understand evil, only “cry out humbly yet insistently to God — Rouse yourself! Do not forget mankind, your creature!’”

And here I thought the Pope had a direct line to God. For the Pope to blame God for not informing the world of the exterminations of European Jews is bizarre and despicable. It would have been much more appropriate for the Pope to apologize for the Catholic church’s complicity in the holocaust. Even if God did not inform the Catholic church of the holocaust there were very many good Catholics who did, and the church did nothing.
