Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte (YouTube/Manila Bulletin Online)

Philippines president Rodrigo Duterte is doubling down on his inflammatory remarks about God.

Duterte told the audience at a science and technology event he would step down if someone could prove God's existence.

According to Fox News, Duterte said he would need a photo or perhaps a selfie that proves a human's interaction and conversations with God in order to resign.

This isn't the first time the 73-year-old leader has made controversial remarks about God. In June, Duterte called God "stupid" and challenged the concept of original sin.

The leader of the largely Catholic nation has repeatedly rejected certain tenants of Christianity or any attempts to use faith to condemn his actions.

As CBN News reported, Christian leaders in the Philippines are concerned Duterte's comments could have dire consequences.
