Multiple reports quote Rodrigo Duterte as describing God as “st*pid and a son of a b*tch” during a speech in his home city of Davao.
Punching some loopholes in the biblical creation story of Adam and Eve, he wondered why God will put the fruit of knowledge in the Garden of Eden in the first place.
“Adam ate (the fruit of knowledge), then malice was born. Who is this stupid God?
“That son of a bitch is stupid if that’s the case.
“You created something perfect and then you think of an event that would tempt and destroy the quality of your work.”
He also questioned why all descendants of Adam are sinners by virtue of a crime committed by Adam.
Casting doubt on the Christian faith, the outspoken president concluded that he cannot be a member of a such a religion.
“That was your mother and father’s deed – you weren’t born yet, but now you have original sin.
“What kind of religion is that?” stating: “ I can’t accept it.”
But the comment has not gone down well with most Philipines, a country where over 80% of the population profess Catholicism.
