PRESIDENT Rodrigo Duterte bared Thursday evening, October 27, that he will stop cussing in between his public speeches after claiming that he heard God’s voice that made him promise not spew expletives again.

Duterte shared his epiphany inside the plane during his arrival at the Davao International Airport in Davao City, as he returned back to the Philippines from the three-day state visit in Japan. He said that while everybody was asleep, he heard a voice in which he said was God.

The voice, according to him, told him to stop bursting with profanity in expressing his emotion or else, the plane will crash. There and then he decided not to cuss anymore.

"I was looking at the skies as I was coming over here. Everybody was asleep snoring," Duterte said. "A voice said that you know if you don't stop, I will bring this plane down now."

"So, I promise God not to express slang, cuss words and everything. So you guys hear me right always because a promise to God is a promise to the Filipino people," Duterte said.

His statement elicited loud applause from the audience, but, Duterte said to them not to make it louder for he might fail to fulfill it.

"Huwag masyadong palakpak baka mapalpak pa tuloy (Don't clap too much because I might fail)," he said.

Duterte’s colorful and bold statement has drawn various reactions from the Filipino citizen. He earned criticisms while some admire his transparency and being true to his thoughts.

Nevertheles, Duterte said he would not change his style as it would no longer be true to himself.
