Slams Susan Sarandon

You're Ignorant and Obscene

The largest Catholic civil rights organization in the United States is lashing out at Susan Sarandon for referring to Pope Benedict as a "Nazi" this weekend -- calling the comment, "positively obscene."

TMZ spoke with Bill Donohue, President of the Catholic League, who told us, "Susan Sarandon's quip about Pope Benedict XVI being a 'Nazi' bespeaks unparalleled ignorance."

Donohue adds, "Joseph Ratzinger (the pope) was conscripted into the Nazi Youth the way every other 14-year-old German boy was at the time. Unlike most others, he not only refused to go to the compulsory meetings -- he actually deserted the Hitler Youth! Which is precisely why Jews today regard him as a friend, not as an enemy."

"In short, what Sarandon said is positively obscene."

So we gotta ask ...

The Catholic religion is beyond creepy with all their pedophile Priests raping little boys, using their authority to overcome these vulnerable children. And they're up in arms about one comment an actress makes?...please.

Bill Donohue has made countless ignorant statements, specifically related to gay people. He needs to stick to his church and stay out of the secular world.

"bespeaks unparalleled ignorance." - Believing in God shares the same sentiment.

TO ALL THE NON BELIEVERS IN THIS DEVIL'S WORLD


JEHOVAH GOD DO EXIST!!!!


"You, whose name is Jehovah, you alone are the Most High over all the earth". - Psalm 83:18


"Draw close to God, and he will draw close to you" - James 4:8


True, you cannot see God because he is an invisible spirit. By learning about him through the pages of the Bible, however, you can come to know him as a person.


The more you learn about Jehovah God, the more real he will become to you and the more reason you will have to love him and feel close to him.

The Catholic Church as well as the Pope would do well to address the massive levels of sexual abuse within their Church instead of sweating what a Hollywood actress calls one of them. Victim, after victim, after victim and the Church denies, defends, and protects pedophiles. Sarandon calling the Pope a Nazi is the least she should have called him for not addressing all of these molestation charges.

Be gentle with her. Her breasts sagged down to her knees twenty years ago and she's never been the same.

It's OK, though, no need to apologize - she didn't call any blacks, gays, jews, mexicans, muslims, non-whites, immigrants, transexuals, transgenders a nazi, so we're good.
