Reuters is reporting, based on the Philippine Inquirer, that the bishops are asking people to prepare for a new government. The press release on the Philippine conference of Catholic bishops's website, is not seemingly asking for violence with statements such as : "The time to prepare a new government is now." - what it does ask is for a complete reformation of society, against corruption, even to the extent of gaining a new government. Whether the new government consists in making it moral, and therefor the equivalent, or the replacement of the administration by political means seems left up to the government, whose president was lambasted openly by a representative of the bishops as corrupt. The country is certainly being asked by the bishops to permeate the whole of society with Catholic morals.

The Philippines recently were threatened with genocide (Article 2 section d- creating conditions to limit births in a population- is genocide if it aims at reducing population), by groups from within the UN, the US population control office, and American abortion firm "International Planned Parenthood", which has somehow managed to be allowed to teach sexual education classes in America, and was attempting to force a 2 child limit on the Philippines, which is currently in a low scale civil war. The church reiterated that it was not overpopulation that caused poverty, but corruption. It seems the church is heavily against corruption under their current government. Other church organizations had already condemned the corruption in the country's current administration.
