On “Stupid” God

“For a Christian country like Philippines, a topic about Jesus Christ is very sensitive. But, from the previous statement of the President of the country, Rodrigo Duterte, calling that God is stupid, rings all the bells of some religious personalities and many Christian people. I don’t actually call myself a very religious person, but I know who I believe and it is the Lord Jesus Christ. If the President himself doesn’t believe in the Lord and throws negative words against Him, that would be his own belief. It’s just that, uttering such words without considering the faith of many Christians is an act of insensitivity. Since he is playing the role of the leader of this country he should at least respect his constituents and their beliefs. I think he never has the right to say anything against the Lord.  Instead, he should at least inspire his people to respect each other’s belief other than despising the faith of many Christians. Even before he claims his position, the Philippines is a Christian country already and he should keep that in his mind.”

“Ang point niya kasi Diyos ng tao ang pera kaya stupid ang God natin sabi niya. Pero hindi niya na-clear yun sa first speech niya kaya siya binatikos. Naipagtanggol niya sarili niya. Freedom of speech. Haha”

-Angie Soriano, 19, Mapandan

 

“Well, as what I understand is, tinutukoy niyang God is yung mga kulto siguro or those man-made stuffs.”

“Ang reaction ko lang sa issue na yan ay na shock ako kasi sinabi niya na stupid si God .. Si God na nagc-create sa kanya, tapos ganon sasabihin niya.. Siguro, may iba siyang kinikilalang Diyos? Kaya ganon na lamang ang sabi niya kay God. He doesn’t know what he is telling. God bless him”

“Hindi niya alam ang sinasabi niya!  He is pointless! Tama bang tawaging stupid si God?  It’s not right! ”

Ruth Dizon, 20, Malued, Dagupan City

 

“Nakaka-dissapoint siya kasi leader siya ng bansa tapos ganon pa sinabi niya”

“.. sa akin, being a Catholic, hindi magandang ihemplo bilang lider ng buong bansa ang magsasabi ng ganyan. Diba saan ang unity kung sa bunganga nya mismo nanggaling na iba ang diyos nya sa pinapaniwalaang diyos ng karamihan. Tapos dun pa sa post ni Inday (anak niya) sa IG na dinedepensa nya si Duterte about dahil lider lang siya na kung saan pumapanig lang sa kung ano ang tama pero hndi naman umaanib sa karamihan. Saan na yung una palang na sinabi nya na I care for my people? Kung sa sarili nya eh hindi yun ang tama para pahalagahan nya ang kanyang nasyon.”
