On Monday President Rodrigo Duterte defended his controversial remark calling God “stupid”, saying it is “true”.
The President has drawn flak after saying he found fault in the creation story in the Bible and questioned God’s logic, saying He is “stupid.”
During a speech in Davao City in the opening of the 2018 National ICT Summit, He said “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,”
Duterte found fault in the creation story in the Bible which said that the snake tempted Eve to eat the apple, then she gave it to Adam. “So kinain ni Adam. Then malice was born,” he said.
He said “How—how can you rationalize a God? Maniwala ka? Kaya nga sabi ko diyan ‘wag ka maniwala niyang…,”
He then added “So tayo ngayon, all of us are born with an original sin. Ang original sin—ah sin—ano man ‘yan? Was it the first kiss? O… What was the sin? Bakit original? Nasa womb ka pa, may kasalanan ka na,”
“C****-c**** man lang ‘yun ng nanay pati tatay mo. Wala ka mang kasali. Tapos ngayon may original sin ka. T**** i**** klase. Anong klaseng relihiyon ‘yan,” the President continued.
The President Duterte, who was born and raised as a Catholic, also said that he was not referring to his own god when he called God as stupid.
“Wala akong sinabing torpe ang ginoo ko (I did not say my god was stupid),”
“Your god is not my god because your god is stupid. Mine has a lot of common sense.”
