Speaking in Manila, Mr Duterte also questioned God’s existence himself and addressed God directly in his speech, asking “where are you?” Only God could kill. But what if there is no God?”
Mr Duterte was elected president in June 2016, and has earned a reputation as a loose cannon, after calling Barack Obama a “son of a whore”, ahead of a meeting with the US president.
“If you make me mad, in all honesty, I will eat you alive, raw.”
Earlier this month, it was claimed at a senate hearing Mr Duterte had allegedly shot dead a justice department agent with an Uzi submachine gun while serving as mayor of Davao. The claim, made by an alleged hitman, was strongly denied by the President's office.
