The Philippines is facing a crisis in conscience as the bishops prepare to elect their second term, and some are asking the nation’s leaders to reconsider their support for the country’s Catholic Church.
The Catholic Church is one of the most powerful institutions in the Philippines, and one of its most prominent leaders is Archbishop Oscar Rizal, who is currently serving a five-year term.
His tenure has been marked by political corruption and a high death toll from the disease that caused the country to collapse during World War II.
In a new report released Thursday, the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) said that Rizc’s reign has been tainted by widespread allegations of political corruption.
The CPJ has reported that since he became president in 2017, Rizl has repeatedly violated his oaths and violated the constitution by using his influence to influence government policies and appoint his closest aides, according to the report.
The CPJ said that the Church has been able to continue to use its influence to “maintain the power of the church and its power over government.”
Rizal has said he has been doing what he can to protect the country from the ravages of the disease, but the CPJ report said he is doing the same things that are hurting the Philippines’ economy.
The report also found that while the government has promised to eradicate the virus, Rilizal’s administration has not provided any concrete plans to do so.
The Philippines has experienced a rapid decline in its economy and has seen an uptick in suicides, with more than 1,500 people committing suicide since the beginning of 2017, according the CPJP report.
The country has been under a state of emergency since March 2018.
In February, the Catholic Church banned all gatherings of more than five people, which means that even though most people are still congregating, they are not allowed to be together in church.
The CPIJ said the bishops’ decision was an attempt to “take advantage of the crisis to further the church’s agenda of political power and wealth.”
The CPJs report comes amid a growing push by some Catholic leaders to take a more hands-off approach toward the Church’s role in the countrys healthcare system.
Last year, Pope Francis urged Catholic leaders in the U.S. and the Vatican to work more closely with the government in order to solve the country s health problems.
The pope also said that there is no reason for the Catholic bishops to be “worse than the government.”
“The church is the guardian of the common good.
We are here to defend the common health, the common wealth, and the common dignity of all, the Pope said.
