Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte is mad as hell, and he’s not going to take it anymore. Rowdy Rodrigo is targeting the Catholic Church with his unhinged rants, and apparently he means business!
“To the priests, don’t meddle too much,” Duterte said while visiting the southern Philippine province of Cotabato. Duterte claims that the Catholic Church “has to correct itself before it can” criticize his regime.
“If not, I will really be their enemy and I will continue to attack them,” Duterte said.
Duterte is a firebrand who has made frequent shocking comments against the Catholic Church. He has called the faith stupid and made remarks considered to be blasphemous that have hurt his approval rating. Still, Duterte is one of the few men in the world with the king-sized balls to call out corruption within this incredibly powerful institution.
“The most hypocritical institution in the entire Philippines is the Catholic Church and the Pope knows that,” Duterte said.
“No offense intended,” he added. “I have so many relatives who are gay. I have two brother-in-laws who are gay. But most of the priests there are homosexuals, almost 90 percent of you. So do not postulate on my morality.”
Duterte also blamed the Catholic Church for run-away poverty in the Philippines.
“We are very poor. We have a runaway population,” he said. “It’s because of the Church. They have always been against family planning. But the priests and the bishops are also into it producing more Filipinos. The idiots of our times.”
“These bishops that you guys have, kill them. They are useless fools. All they do is criticise,” Duterte added.
Pope Francis, an ideologue who preaches Marxism from atop a golden throne in Vatican City, has clearly strayed from the doctrine of Jesus Christ and it reflects upon the entire Catholic Church as a whole. Although Duterte is far from perfect, he just may be just the man to lead the crusade against this wicked institution.
