dec 2, 2015 - Duterte cursed the Pope
Duterte received criticism for cursing at Pope Francis because the Pope caused traffic congestion in Metro Manila during his visit in January 2015. He claimed that his outburst was a result of a molestation incident against him by a priest during his childhood. He immediately apologized through the media, saying he was not "cursing" the Pope but rather the government's way of preparing for the Pope's visit.
