Davao City Mayor Inday Sara Duterte Carpio has opened up about the negative comments of his father, President Rodrigo Duterte, about God, the Bible and the Catholic Church.
KAMI learned that she urged the public not to listen to her father when it comes to his spiritual and theological beliefs and commentaries.
“Please do not listen to him interpret the bible or quoran, he is not a priest, a pastor or an imam. He is the President, listen only when he speaks about his work. And criticize him on his work not on his ‘talkkalese’ Do not waste your negative energy on his interpretation of the bible, that is his opinion. He is protected by the Constitutional right to freedom of speech and expression even if he is President,” she wrote on Facebook.
The mayor also broke her silence on the allegations that her father is a misogynist.
“This is the first time I will say it out loud and I hate to admit it because I love my two brothers too much but yes I am the favorite child, so that #babaeako campaign is doomed. What he doesn’t like lies not in the gender, but in the character, he has no respect for weakness. And many women and some men are known to be damsels in distress, that #babaeako included,” she explained.
