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.

Religion is as real as the tooth fairy and Santa Claus. There is absolutely no proof that there is some magical place called heaven and a fiery hell. It's amazing to think there are supposedly sane adults out there who believe this nonsense. The Catholics with their pedophile priests have their nerve being up in arms about one comment an actress makes.

Why is it that these actors feel they have the right to talk about things they've never lived through or be a part of. Amazing how these so call has been adopt something latch on to it go on any platform and open their mouths as if they were experts at it. She needs to go feed the poor and help the homeless and shut the hell up.

Lol most Catholics in a position of power are Nazis, at least they sure act like it. As for calling her obscene, they should remember that word next time some nasty priest is trying to stick his dilly in an altar boy's ass. Hypocrites.

Who cares about the German nazi's. What I want to know is how come the church doesn't seem to really care about the pedophilia they had going on in their little churches all around the world? Which is most likely still happening has we speak.

Susan you do know that it was required by German Law for all boys 14 yrs or older to participate in the Hiltler Youth or they would be put in concentration camps and usually killed? Shut your ginger mouth and read a history book

You idiots are outraged that she would accuse a man of being a Nazi when he was, who is now associated with a Pedophile ring known as the Catholic church but you are not outraged that there are children molested and raped for life under his leadership? You people are psychotic!
