Thank God! Lacson welcomes Duterte’s apology to God
by Xave Gregorio
Senator Panfilo “Ping” Lacson is praising to the high heavens President Rodrigo Duterte’s apology to God for calling Him stupid.
Lacson said that his fellow Duterte supporters, who experienced a “dilemma” in light of his scathing remarks against God, can now “move on” and pray for the President’s “continued enlightenment” following his apology.
“I can only thank God for enlightening our president to make that humble apology. It shouldn’t matter much if it was my God or his God he is apologizing to, because there is only one God of the universe anyway,” Lacson said in a statement Wednesday (July 11).
“It takes courage and character for a man to openly accept his mistake and apologize. This was how I knew the president in the many times that I was dealing with him when he was still mayor of Davao City,” he said further.
Duterte called God last month “stupid” and questioned the biblical creation story.
He has stood by his tirades against the God of his critics until his meeting with Jesus is Lord leader Bro. Eddie Villanueva today, where he apologized “if it’s the same God.”
