The Rat's non-question

The Rat visits Auschwitz and puts on a act:

"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.

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

Why is Shiva silent? Why is Kuan Yin silent? Why the heck do you suppose each and every supernat hero that's ever been worshipped silent? Geez, do we have to spell it out? Why the hell is it that Superman, Wonder Woman, Spiderman, Ironman, ... have never been around to save anyone in the real world? Duh!
