When he dies, President Duterte apparently does not wish to go to heaven because, according to him, all they do there is pray.
The President, musing about his mortality during a recent public engagement, said in jest he would prefer to spend his after-life in a place where there will be beautiful women.
“As a matter of fact, wala akong ambisyon ng langit. Kasi nakita ko na doon sa mga libro-libro ng pari, puro dasalan doon, ayaw ko ‘yan [As a matter of fact, I have no ambition to go to heave because I’ve seen in the books of protests, that it will be all prayers there. I don’t like it],” he said during the national assembly of barangay officials in Pasay City Monday night.
“Ako, gusto ko ‘yung saan ‘yung mga — eh tayong mag-usap tayo. Saan ang pinakamagandang babae? ‘Di magprangka tayo, nasa langit sila? ‘Yung sa mga disco-disco na ‘yon. Nasaan kaya ‘yan sila? [I’d like a place where there are, let’s talk, which place has the most beautiful women? Let’s be frank, are they in heaven? The ones dancing in disco. Where are they?],” he added.
Duterte, who previously questioned the concept of heaven and hell, said that, in heaven, the only women there were angels.
He then suggested hell as a possible after-life destination where he can supposedly enjoy the company of women.
“Dito na lang kay im — sabihin mo kay Lucifer p***** i** ka, ‘pag hindi — ‘pag hindi ka mag-share, share sa aminhintayin mo ‘yang sila mga general mamatay, i-kudeta kita bukas [It’s better in hell. You can tell Lucifer, son of a b*tch if you don’t share with us],” he said.
The President previously said he was “ready for hell” amid his resolve to kill people behind the illegal drug trade in the country. He earlier said he did not believe that God would create hell where people would endure endless suffering.
