President Rodrigo Duterte, who is known for criticizing the Catholic Church, called God “stupid” after he questioned His logic in the creation story in a speech last Friday.
Duterte Pulls Off A Nazareno
During A MotorcadeWhat has come over President Rodrigo Duterte that, without provocation, he aimed for the very top and called God “stupid” on the basis of his limited understanding of the biblical story of Creation?
Is he running out of targets in his anti-Catholic Church rant so he picked a quarrel with God himself? Good luck to Duterte.
In 2015 he lambasted Pope Francis just because his visit slowed down traffic while Duterte was on the road. Lately he has been denouncing priests for what he said is their hypocrisy, and giving out copies of a book on alleged indiscretions of members of the clergy.
In Davao City on Friday, he told a crowd his story of Adam and Eve who he said were tempted by a snake with an apple, leading to “original sin” that he said was unfair to their descendants.
His version: “Kinain ni Adam, then malice was born. Who is this stupid God? Istupido talaga itong p***** **a kung ganoon…. You created something perfect and then you think of an event that would tempt and destroy the quality of your work.”
On original sin: “Tsuk-tsak lang ‘yun ng nanay pati tatay mo, wala ka pang kasali tapos ngayon may original sin ka! T*******g klase – anong klaseng relihiyon ‘yan? ‘Yan ang hindi ko matanggap. What a stupid proposition!”
In his recent visit to South Korea, Duterte related the same Adam and Eve story June 3 to a crowd of Filipinos, telling them that: “Kung ’yan ang Diyos ng Katoliko, torpe ‘yan!”
Lingayen-Dagupan Archbishop Socrates Villegas reacted: “The list of cuss words against God is endless. God is still God and those who have cursed Him are now dust.”
He urged the faithful to pray for those who teach error and to forgive them, saying: “They might be insane or possessed. They need God. They need your prayers and love and compassion.”By Federico Pascual, Phil Star

President Duterte questioned God Himself on why heinous crimes are committed in the Philippines and other parts of the world.
Duterte made the remarks while defending his preference for the reimposition of the death penalty and his willingness to be investigated on account of his human rights record but only under the jurisdiction of the Philippine government.
"Hindi tumalab yung death penalty noon kasi hindi in-impose. One, because of the Catholic church. Second, the bleeding hearts, because only God can kill. Ang problema niyan, I ask you, what if there is no God?" Duterte said in a speech before media professionals in Malacañang.
A Cry against Injustice
Do you really speak righteously, you mighty ones?
Do you judge people fairly?
2 No, you practice injustice in your hearts;
with your hands you weigh out violence in the land.
3 The wicked go astray from the womb;
liars err from birth.
4 They have venom like the venom of a snake,
like the deaf cobra that stops up its ears,
5 that does not listen to the sound of the charmers
who skillfully weave spells.
6 God, knock the teeth out of their mouths;
Lord, tear out the young lions’ fangs.
7 They will vanish like water that flows by;
they will aim their useless arrows.
8 Like a slug that moves along in slime,
like a woman’s miscarried child,
they will not see the sun.
9 Before your pots can feel the heat of the thorns—
whether green or burning—
He will sweep them away.
10 The righteous one will rejoice
when he sees the retribution;
he will wash his feet in the blood of the wicked.
11 Then people will say,
“Yes, there is a reward for the righteous!
There is a God who judges on earth!”
"If I become president, I advise you people to put up several funeral parlor businesses..."
“Because the poor are plundered & the needy groan, I will now arise, I will protect them from those who malign them.” Psalm 12:5
No Philippine leader since Ferdinand Marcos has held the democratic fate of his nation in his hands so decisively, yet so perilously, as President Rodrigo Duterte.

"Can a throne of destruction be allied with You, One which devises mischief by decree? And condemn the innocent to death."
Dear God, we are witnessing man's inhumanity to man. People are being slaughtered like animals. Lord, please help the Philippines.
