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.

Unfortunately, Pope Benedict is trying to create a reconciliation with a group of "traditionalists" who deny the Holocaust ever happened. Together with his personal background and Hitler's 1923 Catholic attempted overthrow of Bavaria's government, the Pope may appear sympathic. The US failed in rehabiliation trys with Qaddafi and Assad.

Being a Catholic, I understand and agree that all pedofile priests should receive life sentances for what they have done to innocent children and their families who trusted them. However Susan Sarandon is an ignorant fool with no clue how many Catholics she has offended. She is right up there with Mel Gibson. The truth about Susan Sarandon is that she is a whore with many bastard children and has no business bashing any religion because it appears that she has none.

Since Sarandon has said she model her life off Eva Braun and she is a slut from the s to the t, she is no one to talk.

We should all know by now that The Catholic Church is the Beast-the false church Satan has set up to lead many away from the truth of Christ. Every Pope has been evil but the last Pope will be the most evil-the false prophet. Book of revelation reveals this. The only way the Pope can be saved is to denounce The Roman Catholic Church-repent-call on Jesus and be saved-If he does not do this-Satan will use this man to help usher in the One World Religion leading millions to Hell. Yeah, Susan's right. Should I repeat mysel****ain too???

Bravo Susan Sarandon! She has spoken the bitter truth! Yes, the European German Roman Catholic Christian Pope Joseph Ratzinger Benedict XVI was a Nazi, a bigoted hater of the Israeli Jewish Nationalist Freedom Fighter and the most proud Jewish religious leader Jesus Christ, and a pervert and sadistic participant in the monitoring, manipulating, lootting, arresting, injuring, molesting, raping, torturing, and killing of the milllions of Jewish men, women and children all over Europe before, during and after the second world war under the leadership and instructions of the most fundamentalist European German Christian Fuhrer Adolph Hitler. For the Nazis like the European German Roman Catholic Christian Pope Joseph Ratzinger Benedict XVI, the most fundamentalist European German Christian Fuhrer Adolph Hitler is the God and their lives are dedicated to him and they live every minute of their lives in the praise of their God Fuhrer Adolph Hitler, the worst human being and the most sadistic and pervert killer of human beings that the human world has ever seen.

She needs to get slapped with a reality check. No one cares about the opinions of a dusty old has-been. Is there no end to mediocre actors shooting their mouths off? That silly old bitch is as irrelevant as they come.

he was a kid! Lots of children had to join the Hitlerjugend and no one asked if they like it. Kids had no human rights under this regime. It was a very bad time and difficult to escape such an situation. Does she know him personally and he said something wrong or why is she talking such nonsense.

I wish people would make a mountain out of a mole hill. Does it really matter? It's an opinion. Not a fact. Let's see... what else can the media come up with to stir up a hornet's nest.
