God’s Folly

If there is one way to describe President Duterte is that he can be consistent. I am not talking about his political agenda or economic plan, but about his recent statement calling God stupid. Saying those words is consistent with how his administration treated people. His lack of respect towards God is seen in his actions and policies.

We hear about those who denounced Duterte as blasphemous while others were strong to defend the account of Adam and Eve in Genesis.
