The president of the Philippines Rodrigo Duterte has vowed to resign immediately if it can be proven to him that God is real during latest broadside at Catholic church.
The president who is known to have a complicated relationship with the church sparked an outrage for calling God stupid in his predominantly Roman Catholic church country. He questioned the concept of original sin, which stains even innocent infants and can only be washed through baptism in a church for a fee
“Where is the logic of God there?” Duterte asked in a speech at the opening of a science and technology event in southern Davao city. The 73-year-old leader said that if there’s “one single witness” who can prove, with a picture or a selfie that a human was “able to talk and to see God,” he will immediately resign.
He also accused the Catholic Church for collecting monetary support from members, accusing it of using donations to "maintain the palaces and the luxurious things that the rest of humanity do not have".
“If you are really helping people, why do you ask money from them?” he asked.
Angered Christian groups demanded an apology from the president for insulting God after he was reported to have called God "a son of a bitch" and "stupid" to which he replied: “Not in a million years.”
