Catholic Leagues Bill Donohue Goes After Susan Sarandon (Guess Who’ll Win This?)
Anti-gay, Anti-abortion, and anti-human Bill Donohue of the Catholic Church unaffiliated Catholic League is going crazier than usual and spamming entertainment sites with a demanding that Oscar winning actress Susan Sarandon,
Ms. Sarandon won her Oscar for playing a Catholic nun in Dead Man Walking. apologize for referring to the pope as a Nazi.
“Susan Sarandon’s ignorance is willful: those who have hatred in their veins are not interested in the truth,” Donohue said in a statement. Donohue said that the pope was conscripted at the age of 14 w”hile living in Nazi occupied Bavaria, but refused to attend meetings and deserted the group “at the first opportunity.” He said the pope’s refusal to go along with the organization brought hardship to his family. Across the faith-based aisle, Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director, called the actress’ comments “uncalled for.” “Ms. Sarandon may have her differences with the Catholic Church, but that is no excuse for throwing around Nazi analogies,” Foxman said in a statement. “Such words are hateful, vindictive and only serve to diminish the true history and meaning of the Holocaust.”
Donohue is going all Spanish Inquisition craaaazy because Ms, Sarandon mentioned having given a copy of Dead Man Walkings movie’s book to then Pope John Paul II, claifiying the statemennt by adding “not this Nazi one we have now.”
Note To Bill
It’s not an “analogy” or a “comparison”. Ms. Sarandon is actually saying he literally was a Nazi. Because he was! Reluctant or otherwise, it’s still what we call a “fact”.
Susan Sarandon Slams GLAAD Over GLEE "Tranny" Usage War: "You’re way out of control."
Susan Sarandon who starred in a movie whose lead character and star was a Transvestite, the 1975’s original The Rocky Horror Picture Show before Jarret Barrios of GLAAD was even old enough to have his first wet dream has come out swinging at GLAAD’s hys-trans-teria over the fact that GLEE in its “Rocky Horror Picture Show” homage pulled the word “transvestite” from the script but had no problem using the word “tranny” (and equally bizarrely stripped the show of its cross-dressing dressiness.
Sarandon’s reaction to GLAAD’s outrage over the word “tranny”?
“Nonsense, What should they have said?” she asked, adding that she knew plenty of people who proudly called themselves “trannies.” “GLAAD is “getting like PETA — way out of control.”
Responds GLAAD’s Richard Ferraro: “The word ‘tra—y’ has become an easy punch line in popular culture and many still don’t realize that using the term is hurtful, dehumanizing and associated with violence.”
I don’t want to insult the trans community. Now not being a transvestite I am not really sure if they themselves found GLEE’s (Which happens to to gay friendly show on the air) offensive in the context it was used. Which btw was not used for cheap laughs as GLAAD states.
One thing I do know is that perhaps GLAAD should show the same veracity to the REAL BIGOTS who verbally assault us everyday. Like I don’t know. Republicans, hate groups, and those types. And start picking their battles better.
As for Susan Sarandon…..Dammit Janet. I love you.
