Mike, where did you see this?  There is nothing on the ABS-CBN website or any place else, and that surely would be hot news.

I know my in-laws, the Christian churches who backed him, and many others would be outraged it it were true and it would probably lead to his downfall.  I don't think it is true.

Yeah, don't we all believe in one God? Or none at all.

It doesn't look right and it would not fly well here in the Philippines. He's radical, but not an idiot.

Many believe there is only one God. It is not a Muslim God, a Christian God or a Jewish God. It is simply God. 

If it is true that Dutuerte said, "Allah." I think he is just having fun with a predominantly Christian country. The new president is a master when it comes to generating headlines and publicity. We have a similar thing happening in the United States called, "Trump." The more outrageous the statements, the more free publicity.   

As P. T. Barnum, the publicity genius for the Barnum & Bailey Circus use to say, "I don't care what you say about me so long as you spell my name right."

I've read where he says he believes in God, but not in religion.  I have read where he strongly believes in the separation of church and state.  I have read that he was born and raised Catholic.

If he has a Catholic background and a rapport with the Muslims and believes in separation of church and state then I am very optimistic that his religion will not play a negative role in his politics.  I suggest Obama may be a Muslim and it did not seem to matter.

I have been looking at ABS CBN to see the story you mentioned, Mike, but so far no luck.

I think that this topic is about religion which breaks the rules so before someone gets their knickers in a knot I am closing it. I allowed a political topic which turns out the same thing happened so its not worth the trouble.

Just want to add that I am mistaken in the fact that this topic breaks the rules. Religious topics are allowed on the main forum if it is Philippines related but I am not sure about this one as there is no proven source even though I know Mike would not make it up and got it from somewhere.

If anyone has a link to the source or feels that the topic should be open then send me or a support member a PM.
