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.

Oh poor Susan she is old and washed up and now has to resort to making crazy statements to get attention. I cant believe Tim Robbins hung in as long as he did.

The pope is a Nazi, and besides that should be arrested for his role in child molestation cases. "Arrest the pope"

Come on folks. Consider the source. She's not a smart woman. That has always been glaringly apparent.

I don't know if the current "infallible one" is still a Nazi or not, but I do know that he was instrumental in covering up the Church's rampant pedophilia which is quite unforgivable and CRIMINAL!
