Duterte vows to resign if anybody can prove God exists

"'Yung nakikita kong values na justice - what is justice, fairness - I have always said in Davao, 'My God is my service to the people.' Period", Duterte said.

"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.

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte on Friday promised to resign if someone can prove to him that God exists.

Political analyst Ranjit Singh Rye, of the University of the Philippines, said: "Only God knows the mindset of the president". I am not agnostic.

"Who is this stupid God?" Of the so many billions na dumaan dito, I just need one. "And if there is one, ladies and gentlemen, I will announce my resignation immediately".

"Of course, there's God".

Wimbledon 2018: Alexander Zverev survives scare to reach third round
Zverev will play former world No 10 Ernests Gulbis next, and then if he wins, either Kei Nishikori or Nick Kyrgios . Describing Gulbis as a 29-year-old ranked 138 in the world, could conjure the image of a journeyman scraping by.

Duterte, however, suggested that there must be a God or a supreme being that prevents billions of stars and celestial bodies from colliding in a frequency that could have long threatened the human race. "And if that is true, I will step down from the Presidency tonight", he said Friday in a speech at the National Science and Technology Week Celebration in Mindanao at the SMX Convention Center in Lanang, Davao City.

The President also refuted the concept of original sin, which came about because, as related in the Bible, Adam and Eve were banished from Eden for disobeying God. You create a flawless (one) then you spoil it through the snake and an apple. "You were not involved but now you're stained with an original sin ..."

The President also accused the Church of using these donations for the maintenance of "palaces".

In Manila, meanwhile, "running priest" Father Robert Reyes on Saturday said he opposed the one-on-one meeting of Duterte and the Catholic Bishops' Conference of the Philippines president Davao Archbishop Romulo Valles on July 9.

In their pastoral letter, Baylon and the priests of Legazpi said Duterte "crossed the line by disrespecting religious freedom and attacking church leaders".

Recently, Duterte received rants from netizens after he issued a statement in one of his speeches that "God is stupid".
