Duterte Tells Catholic Church To Allow Its ‘Useless’ Priests To Have Boyfriends Because ‘Most Of Them Are Gay’ Anyway

Filipino President Rodrigo Duterte called on the Catholic Church Friday to allow its priests to have boyfriends, alleging “most priests are gay.”

Duterte made his latest tirade against the church during a groundbreaking ceremony for a new school, doubling down on his previous claim that “almost 90 percent” of Catholic clergy are gay. His comments came weeks after he called bishops “useless fools” who should be killed during a Dec. 6 speech at the presidential palace.

No mincing of words there.
