Duterte won’t apologize for calling God ‘stupid’: Not in a million years!
President Rodrigo Duterte will not apologize for calling God “stupid” even though he wanted to reach out to various religious denominations after his blasphemous remarks.
“Not in a million years,” Duterte told reporters Thursday (June 28) when asked if he will say sorry for the statement which offended several officials of the Christian denomination.
“You know, God is personal. It is not formed by textbooks. You nurture God as your faith based on the values that you get from life early on from you parents. That is how you conceive God to be, he explained.
Duterte said religious denominations invite criticism if they use God “as a transmission” to other sectors of society.
“They will say that, ‘ah in the name of God you say that you know that’s not allowed by God…’If you use it as a transmission of messages, you are up to also be on the receiving end,” he said.
