President Rodrigo Duterte met with evangelist Bro. Eddie Villanueva in Malacañang on Tuesday night.

The meeting came after the leader of the Jesus Is Lord (JIL) Church asked the President to apologize for his rant about a “stupid God” and questioning the creation theory in the Bible.


Duterte refused to apologize for his scathing remarks about the Catholic Church and God.

Photos released by Malacañang showed Duterte and Villanueva at a table with Special Assistant to the President Christopher “Bong” Go and presidential chief legal counsel Salvador Panelo at the Malago Golf Clubhouse in Malacañang.


As of this writing, Malacañang has not released details of their meeting.
