Scripted Answer to A Stupid Question

German-Born Pope Benedict XVI Visits Auschwitz, Asks God Why He 'Tolerated' the Holocaust
05-28-2006 12:09 PM - Associated Press

OSWIECIM, Poland -- Pope Benedict XVI visited the Auschwitz concentration camp as "a son of the German people" Sunday and asked God why he remained silent during the "unprecedented mass crimes" of the Holocaust.

"To speak in this place of horror, in this place where unprecedented mass crimes were committed against God and man, is almost impossible _ and it is particularly difficult and troubling for a Christian, for a pope from Germany," he said later.

"In a place like this, words fail; in the end, there can be only a dread silence, a silence which itself is a heartfelt cry to God: Why, Lord, did you remain silent? How could you tolerate all this?"

-----------------Cut for brevity----------------------------------

Ze pope is asking God why he tolerated the holocaust? Doesn't he know the scripted answer to a "Why" something bad happens? Because "God works in mysterious ways." If something good happens, the scripted answer is, "It's God's will."

According to the Catholic religion, he's supposed to be the head of the catholic church, the successor of Peter, the rock. (Here's another irony, he's called the rock even after he thrice denied knowledge of Jesus, even though he had said that he would not.) So being the CEO of the Catholic church he should not ask why because per their company manual called the bible, the all knowing founder is infallible.

But it does not fail. Everything good or bad that happens in this world is associated to a God - catastrophic events, people's hardships, good fortune, plenty a' blessings - everything God! (Any Questions About How Life is Turning Out? Refer to scripted answer above)

Damn, religion doesn't make sense.
