The Philippines president has angered people. President Duterte said he would resign if anyone can prove that God exists. He often upsets people with his religious beliefs. He recently made people angry by calling God stupid. On Friday, he questioned the logic of the Catholic Church and why sin can only be removed from children by paying the Church. He wants "one single witness" who has a picture that a human was "able to talk to and see God".

His opponents called him "one evil man". One said the president's comments showed that he lied, had no heart and was ruthless. Mr Duterte said he believed in God. He said: "There is a universal mind...which controls the universe." He is very popular in the Philippines. He has spent years fighting a war on drugs in which hundreds of people died. He also crushed illegally imported luxury cars. He has agreed to meet religious leaders for talks.
