MANILA—"Precious Hearts Romances Presents: Araw Gabi" star Rita Avila took to social media to criticize President Rodrigo Duterte's latest attack against the Catholic Church.
In her Instagram account, Avila posted a screen grab of a news article about Duterte's tirade against God.
"This is a reflection of you, Mr. President. You only respect yourself," Avila wrote.
"You look at us like garbage cans where you freely throw your trash. Wag naman ganun. Tao kami."
Avila also called on the president's supporters to stop spreading hate.
"To all Duterte fans, I held much hope in him. But sorry, this is too much. You can only help spreading more trash by bashing and hating but I wish you spread GOOD WORDS instead to help clean all of us up," she wrote.
On Saturday, Duterte, an open critic of the Catholic Church, explained that he found fault in the creation story in the Bible and questioned God's logic, saying He is "stupid."
"Who is this stupid God? Estupido talaga itong p***** i** kung ganun. You created some --- something perfect and then you think of an event that would tempt and destroy the quality of your work," he said in a speech during the opening of the 2018 National ICT Summit in Davao City.
