The July 9 issue of TIME magazine quotes Rodrigo Duterte, president of the Philippines - ‘WHO IS THIS STUPID GOD?”  Duterte was dismissing the biblical creation story in a speech on June 22 that has angered church leaders in the predominantly Catholic country.  https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2018/06/26/philippine-bishops-hit-back-duterte-calls-god-stupid/

I wonder if Duterte has similar opinions about the virgin birth, or Jesus walking out of his tomb after being dead for several days?

Trump admired Duterte for encouraging police to execute suspected drug dealers without a trial.  What now?  Back away from him so as not to alienate his evangelical supporters?

quote from this article: ” WASHINGTON — President Trump praised President Rodrigo Duterte of the Philippines in a phone call last month for doing an “unbelievable job on the drug problem” in the island nation where the government has sanctioned gunning down suspects in the streets. Mr. Trump also boasted that the United States has “two nuclear submarines” off the coast of North Korea but said he does not want to use them.”
