An excerpt: “Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte said his country’s Catholic bishops are ‘useless fools’ and should be ‘killed’ as the controversial leader stepped up his attack on the church, which has opposed his deadly war on drugs in the Southeast Asian archipelago.
In a speech at the presidential palace on Wednesday, Duterte was quoted in local news reports as saying in a mix of Filipino and English: ‘These bishops that you guys have, kill them. They are useless fools. All they do is criticise.’
‘ I never said I do not believe in God. What I said is your God is stupid, mine has a lot of common sense. That’s what I told the bishops. I never said I was an atheist,’ he said in an apparent reference to an earlier statement when he was quoted as saying God is ‘stupid’ and a ‘son of a whore’.
The Philippines has more than 100 million people, an estimated 90 percent of whom identify as Catholic.”
