President Rodrigo Duterte on June 22 questioned Roman Catholic Church’s teachings on original sin.
“What was the sin? Bakit original? Nasa womb ka pa, may kasalanan ka na. C****-c**** man lang ‘yun ng nanay pati tatay mo. Wala ka mang kasali. Tapos ngayon may original sin ka. T**** i**** klase. Anong klaseng relihiyon ‘yan,” President Duterte said at the opening of 2018 National ICT Summit at SMX Convention Center in Davao City.
“Eh ‘yan ang hindi ko matanggap. Very stupid proposition. Anong kasalanan? Original sin, tapos i-baptize ka. Basain pa ‘yang ulo mo ng tubig. Maniwala ka niyang pari na ‘yan,” he said.
He noted that he believes in “a universal mind. But to what extent is the influence of that… You know, I cannot picture Him as a human being in the image of God.”
“I have this faith and abiding thing about… Pero ‘yang relihiyon? Sus maniwala kayo diyan,” he added.
“Who is this stupid God? Estupido talaga itong p***** i** kung ganun. You created some – something perfect and then you think of an event that would tempt and destroy the quality of your work,” he said. “How can you rationalize a God? Maniwala ka? Kaya nga sabi ko diyan ‘wag ka maniwala niyang… So tayo ngayon, all of us are born with an original sin.”
