Phillipine President Calls God "Stupid."
This guy has got a lot to learn.
Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte was heavily criticized after he referred to God as “stupid” in a televised speech in Davao on Friday.Sheesh. He could learn a thing or two from many American politicians who just pretend to believe in God to get the vote from the rubes and then undermine everything about the faith. I mean, doesn't this guy watch CNN? How stupid can this guy be?
Duterte, 73, questioned the Biblical story of Adam and Eve in his speech and asked why God created them only to allow them to succumb to temptation that destroyed their purity. The BBC reported more than 90 percent of the country’s citizens are Christian with many being Catholic.
"Who is this stupid God? This son of a b---- is then really stupid," Duterte said. "How can you rationalize a God? Do you believe?"
Duterte lamented that Adam and Eve's sin in Christian theology resulted in all the faithful falling from divine grace.
"You were not involved but now you're stained with an original sins ... What kind of a religion is that? That's what I can't accept, very stupid proposition," he said.
