"I was not even in politics then", Duterte said during the inauguration of Malayan Colleges Mindanao in Davao City.

Duterte caused controversy when, in a speech, he said God was "stupid", and a "son of a b-tch" for including the tree of the knowledge of good and evil in the Garden of Eden.

Duterte, a self-proclaimed Catholic himself still claims to believe in God. I was no longer a Catholic at that age.

"I tend to talk a lot about things..."

"But pag-graduate ko, I created my own God". I never said I do not believe in God. I'm not an agnostic and I'm not an atheist.

Rodrigo Roa Duterte, also known as Digong and Rody, is a Filipino politician who is the 16th and current President of the Philippines.

One single witness that there is a guy, a human being, who's able to talk to and see God.

The CBCP is also expected to issue a pastoral letter on the said matters at the end of their three-day gathering.

Amid the criticisms, officials have arranged a meeting between Duterte and the head of the largest association of Catholic bishops on Monday. Of the so many billions na dumaan dito, I just need one. and if there's one, ladies and gentlemen, I will announce my resignation immediately. The country's bishops offered to provide sanctuary for any whistleblowers in the Philippine police department who spoke out against various human rights abuses. Congress will begin debating the proposed constitution this month, aiming to put it to the public in a referendum next year.

"President Duterte threatens and shames the Catholic Church so its leaders would stop opposing the justification of killings and proliferation of fake news, so they would choose silence and submission over proclaiming the Gospel of mercy and truth", said the Legazpi clergymen.

"We welcome the offer of dialogue between government and various churches, as long as the gesture is honest", he said in a pastoral letter.
