^implementing proper dress code is just one of the changes. because a lot of
Filipinos forget that they will attend the church and not a fashion show or lol beach party
because showing some sexy attire provoke sin and we're praying 'Our Father'
that saying to keep us away from sin.

Well a lot of Filipinos are stubborn, simple rules they do not follow anymore.

Like for example this big sign it says 'DO NOT PASS' showing where they can pass
and it's already in Filipino language to understand.
I don't like looking at Filipina women coming to church in slippers too. Filipinos are so lazy to dress up when going to church. For me, my Father raised me and my siblings with the idea that " We should always be in our Sunday Best when we go to Church. In the Philippines, majority of the Filipino women that I see in the church just wears T- shirts, jeans and slippers. I think they should atleast strive to wear something different in church and not wear something that they also wear when they just go to the market or the mall.
I have a friend whose religion is Iglesia ni Cristo ( Iglesia de Cristo ) and for her, she cannot go to church wearing jeans or any kinds of trousers. She really wears a dress every Sunday. Filipino Catholics do not have this requirement. For me, I prefer if women really wear a dress when they go to mass. Men should also dress decently in the church.
Here in China, it is a very different system. The Catholic church here is very conservative when it comes to showing the arms. When you take the communion wearing sleeveless shirts, they would cover a veil on your shoulders and arms. But they do not care if you show some legs because most of the time, the Chinese women are always in their mini skirts that almost show the butts but no one ever covers their legs when they take the communion. I am always tempted to tell the church servers to cover their legs too because it doesn't look good that their butts can almost be seen when they take the communion. And they care so much to cover the arms when showing the butt is much worse than seeing the arms.

I don't think it has something to do on asian. Filipino old catholics used to wear in a modest way when they go to church. You don't see Filipina wearing pants before & they all dress up below the knee or wearing their Filipinianas & covered their head with veil.

I have friends that also belong to 'Iglesia ni Cristo', she invited me one time so I went & pants is not allowed for female and they have to seat separate from the men. I was also invited to attend the 'Seventh Adventist Church' and it's also the same dress code. The Born Again Christian is almost similar to Christian Catholics that female can wear jeans & I was also invited there too for bible study but they asked me if I want to join but I refuse I'm happy being a Catholic and they respect my decision they're still my friends at least I have idea on other religious group.

The Philippines needs more Catholic Cardinals. It is a shame that a nation with so many practicing Catholics has one while European nations where only ten percent or so of the people go to Mass regularly have a lot more!

As a local, I think it's very possible for the Philippines to have a Quebec-style quiet revolution - and one that might come far sooner than expected... Especially if the Church continues to act too arrogantly - as exemplified by their nonsensical opposition to the RH bill. In fact, I know quiet a number of folks who could be regarded by the Church as "heretical", myself included...

^ Not Quebec style, because that would mean that they would become athiests. I dont see that happening at all. Filipinos are waaaay too spiritual. It's far more likely that they'll just switch to other Christian denominations, or if they drop Christianity (unlikely), they'll continue believing in folk religion

I think we only have one Cardinal at a time. I don't know how it works in other countries but isn't it the same for all ?

The Quebecois, in the then contemporary literature, were often described as an extremely religious people where the Catholic Church held immense sway in all facets of life.

Maybe they were religious in the Catholic sense, but Filipinos are deeply spiritual, not just religious. It goes beyond traditional Catholicism because a lot of the stuff they do and believe is not even sanctioned by the Church. So it's clear that in a lot of ways they're very spiritual but not even in the Catholic sense
