The president of the Philippines, Rodrigo Duterte, has vowed to step down immediately if it can be proven to him that God is real through a selfie. The president sparked outrage in his largely Roman Catholic country by saying that if just one Christian told him truthfully that he/she had been to heaven and had a conversation with God, he would quit, The Independent UK reports.
NAIJ.com gathered that he also attacked the Catholic Church for collecting funds from members, accusing it of using donations to "maintain the palaces and the luxurious things that the rest of humanity do not have".

Christian groups accused him of insulting God and demanded an apology, to which he reportedly replied: “Not in a million years.”
Duterte, who was allegedly giving an unrehearsed speech on Friday, July 6, said: “If there is anyone of you...who say you’d been to heaven, talked to God, saw him personally, and that he exists, the God is yours, and if he does, it’s true, I will step down the presidency". “I just need one witness who will say, ‘Those fools at the church ordered me to go to heaven and talk to God. God really exists. We have a picture together and I brought a selfie',” he added during the opening of a science and technology event. "You do that today, one single witness, that there is a guy, a human being was able to talk and to see God. Of the so many billions, I just need one. And if there is one, ladies and gentlemen, I will announce my resignation immediately."
