What Susan Sarandon said about the Pope

Posted on: October 18, 2011

Susan Sarandon is an idiot!

At the Hamptons Film Festival last weekend she was talking to a reporter about her one and only Academy Award for her role in the 1995 anti-death penalty film “Dead Man Walking” when she said that she sent a copy of the book to the Pope.

She then said, “The last one, Not this Nazi one we have now.” She of course was referring to the German –born pontiff. She even had the nerve to repeat what she said later at the Ciroc Vodka-sponsored panel.

Here is the sad part; no one in the crowd was shocked at her statement. Instead they were all singing her praises for her work with UNICEF as well as her support of the Occupy Wall Street.

However, the Catholic League of America was quick to slam Sarandon for her “obscene” words.

They said, “Susan Sarandon’s ignorance is willful: those who have hatred in their veins are not interested in the truth. The fact is that
Joseph Ratzinger (the Pope) was conscripted at the age of 14 into the Hitler Youth, along with every other young German boy. Unlike most of the other teenagers, Ratzinger refused to go to meetings, bringing economic hardship to his family. Moreover, unlike most of the others, he deserted at the first opportunity,” the league’s President William Donohue said in a statement. “Sarandon’s comment is obscene. Sadly, it’s what we’ve come to expect from her.”

Also, Sarandon drew strong criticism from the Jewish community.

They said, “Ms. Sarandon may have her differences with the Catholic Church, but that is no excuse for throwing around Nazi analogies. Such words are hateful, vindictive and only serve to diminish the true history and meaning of the Holocaust,” The Anti-Defamation League (ADL), which fights anti-Semitism, said in a statement while also calling on Sarandon to issue an apology to the Catholic community.

But of course Sarandon won’t take back her comment because she is an idiot. I will never watch another movie that she makes because of her political views as well as her hateful comments that she believes she can say without regard to anyone’s feelings. Basically, she is a washed up Hollywood actress who wants to make a comeback.
