Susan Sarandon

Claims Pope Is a 'Nazi'

10/17/2011 10:07 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Susan Sarandon
Susan Sarandon
referred to Pope Benedict XVI as a Nazi over the weekend – not just once, but twice.

During an interview at the Hamptons Film Festival, Sarandon was talking about sending the pope a copy of the book, “Dead Man Walking,” when she clarified ... “The last one [Pope John Paul II], not this Nazi one we have now.”

When interviewer Bob Balaban expressed disapproval, Sarandon reportedly said the Nazi comment AGAIN -- drawing laughter from the audience.

The Pope's PR people acknowledged that Benedict WAS a member of the Hitler Youth as a boy, a requirement at the time for German boys his age -- but the rep insists he had no "active participation" in the group.

We've reached out to Susan's people for comment -- so far, no response.

I have noticed some posters here are strangely OBSESSED with pedophilia they talk about it 24/7 and it TROUBLES me strangely enough this topic HAS NOTHING to do with it ...this is about Susan Sarandon calling The Pope a Nazi and for the life of me I don't understand what pedophilia has anything to do with the topic at hand ...

Typical "tolerant" far left whacko .... she and woopie goldberg hug muslim terrorists but hate-on the pope ... uneducated hypocrites ... seriously, they are so self absorbed they think people can be influenced by their bizzare rants. Well .. maybe the brain dead women who actually watch crap like 'The View' ... but thankfully most people don't listen to them.

Susan, what you need to understand is that the Ways of God are inscrutable. You have the right to call the Pope a Nazi if it is what you think. However, what I see is that God is able from stones to raise up children for Abraham. The Nazis wanted to build a New World Order and they tried to raise young boys so that they'd serve their cause but it is exactly one of these kids they wanted to brainwash and enslave that has been chosen as the successor of St Peter. God's Will shall always prevail.

More proof that being a leftist fries the brain. But she is a rich Hollywood actress and the majority of that crowd are probably cheering.

the problem with this country is people forget we have a
freedom of speech and susuan is saying it outloud so i give her credit for it. More people should speak out in this country instead of sleeping in the closet. Let's hope this country doesn't go under and we lose our right to speak out

I stand by you Susan. The Pope is a very dangerous, stupid and hateful old man. And the sad thing is that people listen to him. You people need to wake up!
