Duterte tells Catholics what to do with bishops: Walang silbi! Patayin ninyo!

President Rodrigo Duterte on Wednesday again took potshots at bishops of the Catholic faith, saying he wanted them dead.

“Pero itong mga obispo ninyo, patayin ninyo. Walang mga silbi ang mga gagong ‘yan. All they do is criticize,” said Duterte during the awarding ceremonies for the 2017 Presidential Award for Child-Friendly Municipalities and Cities in Malacañang.

In his speech, the chief executive reiterated his belief in God but not the “stupid” Catholic God.

“I never said I do not believe in God. What I said, ‘Your God is stupid, mine has a lot of common sense’. That’s what I told the bishops,” according to him.

“I never said I was an atheist. The presidency is a God-given gift. I am sure that God would have not given me the position if I were bullshit,” he added.
