(London Daily Mail) Filipino President Rodrigo Duterte has called on the Catholic Church to allow priests to have boyfriends.

In a shocking speech given at a groundbreaking ceremony for a school near the capital Manila on Friday Duterte claimed ‘most priests are gay’ as he doubled down on a previous claim that ‘almost 90 per cent’ of the clergy are homosexuals.

‘Only I can say bishops are sons of b*****s, damn you. That is true. Most of them are gay,’ he said.
