Organizations Rip Susan Sarandon for Pope Remark, Call for an Apology

by at . Comments

She may have meant it as a joke, but a couple major organizations are not laughing over Susan Sarandon's reference to Pope Benedict XVI as a Nazi.

Bill Donohue, President of the Catholic League, says the quip "bespeaks unparalleled ignorance" on the actress' part, as Joseph Ratzinger is considered a friend of Jewish people because he "deserted the Hitler Youth."

The Anti-Defamation League, meanwhile, responded yesterday by asking Sarandon to apologize to the Catholic communit. Said ADL National Director Abraham H. Foxman:

"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."

What do you think? Should Sarandon apologize? How do you view her statement about the Pope?

This dirty butana (bitch) is a stinkin whore to all the dirty liberal-
minded freaks (no higher standards) out in this evil world! She will
say anything, no matter how evil, to get some momentary fame! If she said something evil about Jewish people, Muslims, or African-American
people, there would be a huge back-lash! But say it about the Catholic
community and all the freaks join-in on the attack! KNOW WHAT I SAY?

I don't think Susan Sarandon should apoligize on you tube the pope Bendect xv1 says he doeswn't believe that Jesus is the messiah and that you don't have to be saved to go to heaven and that include the jewish people. This is a false statement see Johm 3:116 and Romans 8 it talksabout salvation that the only way to heaven is by confessing Yeshua=JesuaGreek term will get you to heaven other wise you will go to hell from Jody Siciliano.

Right or wrong, I like her, she's a woman of principles and courage. The pope I don't know about so I won't comment on that. I'm sure someone else will..

Over the top US religious nonsense - he is, by his own admission of his past!! Get over it - just cos he was voted top to become the pope doesn't automatically absolve him from his past. Like you guys always forgive/ forget ordinary criminals past and give them another chance NOT!!! What's the difference here Eh?
