President Rodrigo Duterte on Friday lambasted not just the Catholic Church but also God Himself and the creation story in the Bible.
“Who is this stupid God? Estupido talaga itong p***** i** kung ganun. You created some—something perfect and then you think of an event that would tempt and destroy the quality of your work,” he said in a speech in Davao City during the opening of the 2018 National ICT Summit.
Duterte found fault in the creation story in the Bible which said that the snake tempted Eve to eat the forbidden fruit, then she in turn gave it to Adam. “So kinain ni Adam. Then malice was born,” he said.
“How—how can you rationalize a God? Maniwala ka? Kaya nga sabi ko diyan ‘wag ka maniwala niyang…,” Duterte added.
