“Please do not listen to him interpret the Bible or Quran, he is not a priest, a pastor or an imam. He is the President, listen only when he speaks about his work,” Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte said amid President Rodrigo Duterte’s series of statements expressing his beliefs on God and the Bible.
Sara added that her father should be criticized “on his work not on his ‘talkkalese’.”
“Do not waste your negative energy on his interpretation of the bible, that is his opinion,” she added. “He is protected by the Constitutional right to freedom of speech and expression even if he is President.”
“Your God is not my God because your God is stupid. Mine has a lot of common sense,” Duterte said during the oath taking of newly-elected Barangay Chairpersons in Region X in Cagayan de Oro City on June 25.
“Sabi ko not everything in the Bible is true. Sinong nag-publish niyang Bible na ‘yan? May printing press sila noon? And even itong Last Supper. Who are the idiots there? Basta nalang gi – ginawang santo,” he said.
