IN his latest attack on the Catholic Church Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte, above, said the world would be a better place if all child molesting priests were to be killed.

Referring to paedophile priests as “sons of bitches” Duerte said at a campaign rally in Cagayan de Oro City, he would “really kill” child molesting priests.

Speaking on Sunday at a campaign rally in Cagayan de Oro City, Duterte said:

To the priests who raped children and fondled balls, you sons of bitches, I will really kill you. Why should I be afraid? If you all get killed tonight, that would be better. Then we will have a better world.

Duterte has claimed he was abused by a priest when attending Ateneo de Davao High School, a Jesuit-run institution, in the late 1950s.

He has has been relentlessly trashing the Catholic Church since before he took office in 2016.

The president also accused Catholic bishops of serving:

The rich and the elite, those who are owners of banks and other businesses.

And he said that all governments in the world that allow the Church to interfere in governance are “chaotic”.

During the rally, the President also singled out a priest who allegedly called for Duterte’s death during a homily at Mass.

What kind of religion is that? Roman Catholic Church … What kind of religion would pray for the death of another person?.

This is not the first time the President has threatened violence against clerics.

Last December the controversial leader said:

These bishops, kill them, those fools are good for nothing. All they do is criticize.

Those remarks came just over a week after he threatened to have the “head cut off” a bishop he called “David” – believed to be Duterte critic Pablo Virgilio David, the Bishop of Caloocan, above.

David, a vocal critic of Duterte’s extrajudicial killing of drug dealers in the Philippines, said:

People who are sick sometimes do not know what they are talking about.

The bishop asked the public to pray for Duterte because he is a “very sick man.” He made the statement after the president called saints “fools” and “drunkards.”

David’s pronouncement angered the President, who said be believed the bishop might be into drugs.

David later confirmed to the media that he had received death threats from unknown people.

Earlier this month, three Philippine priests said they and some Church leaders who are critical of the president’s bloody crackdown on illegal drugs have received death threats from unknown people.

Father Robert Reyes said earlier this month:

The deadly words of Duterte against Catholics are like a dagger pointed at us. The message is clear. It’s not only people that he wanted dead but our faith as well.

    GPH: “and few are finding it.”

    I can help you there or at least point you to why they can’t find it. It isn’t there. It exists only of the fevered fantasies of religious dupes and you seem like a prime example.

    Reminder: Just because you despise Catholic priests doesn’t mean you’re automatically sane and compassionate.

    Nice one. But you know the flaws in that argument as well as I do.

    In surprise news, the Roman Catholic clergy becomes violent fascist autocrat’s adversary, instead of sycophant.

    I am sure they approve. For disabled members and others unable to spend weekends knocking on doors, spamming blog comments and social media with canned rants is the equivalent.
