President Rodrigo Duterte, on Monday, in yet another mockery towards the Catholic Church, urged parishioners to go on and build their own ‘house of prayer’ to refrain from giving donations, claiming that Church teachings have become “archaic” over time.

In addressing the crowd during the groundbreaking ceremony of the Davao City Bulk Water Supply Project, President Duterte said, “How people from 3, 000 years ago predict or project what is happening today? You build a chapel on your own house and pray there, you don’t have to go to church to pay forthese id*ots.”


The President also accused the prelates for allegedly ASKING for government property with some even have lovers to mess around with.

“Kayo ang demonic… Ibang obispo naman (expletive) niya. May mga kabit dyan sa NHA (National Housing Authority) nakatira. (Expletive) kayo. Tapos madman (ako)? Paano ako mag madman may diyos ako,” Duterte said.

Duterte previously ACCUSED a certain ‘Bishop David’ in a cryptic statement, for stealing Church offerings to benefit his family. 
        
The President previously drew flak for calling God ‘stupid’ in his remarks and for making a ridicule out of San Isidro Labrador, the Patron of Farmers and the Catholic tradition of allotting a patron saint to every parish.

Bishop ‘DAVID’ Reacts 

For being the only Bishop ‘David’, Caloocan Bishop Pablo Virgilio David reacts to President Duterte’s claims, saying that his parents never taught him to steal.

President Duterte said he even has videos to prove allegations that a certain Bishop “David” is taking Church donations in a speech during the inauguration of the Cavite Gateway Terminal in Tanza, Cavite.

“Ikaw, David, tumahimik ka ha. Sige ka lang hingi ng contribution diyan sa mga… Saan ang pera ng mga tao? Sige lang hingi, may second collection pa,” the President taunted.

“Alam mo totoo lang, sabihin ko sa inyo, iyong mga offerings, iyong mga pinya, mga avocado, saging, saan napupunta iyan? Gusto ninyong malaman? Gusto ninyo ng video? Ibigay ko sa inyo. Doon sa pamilya niya,” Duterte added.

The President, however, has yet to disclose the identity of the person behind the real ‘Bishop David’.
