Powerful Catholic Org.

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 ...

For the record, this isn't the ONLY thing this goofball is ignorant about. Do a Google search of her and you will find enough ignorance and hypocrisy to fill a full length movie that she could star as herself in.

LoL@all the ignorant morons talking about Catholics being pedophiles. So what does it mean when a Jew kills and chops up a little boy in New York city? Does that mean all Jews are child murderers? Bunch of 12 year twits on this website. Oh and Susan Saradon is an even bigger moron than you people.

So where is the hew and cry against Ms Liberal Sarandon.....Hank Williams, Jr was vilified and dragged thru the muck of the "journalists".....but the darling of the left journalists, Ms Sarandon, hasn't been scolded or any demand made that she not be allowed on the big screen any longer. Double standard????? Ah, me, what a shock!

I wasn't going to say anything but I am really tired of everyone bashing the church. No organization is perfect and the Catholic church is not the only one having the same probelems. Calling the pope a "nazi" is insulting to all Catholics. By the way, God DOES exist!
