This is the problem with people who are into poverty and they don't have job. They multiply and do not even think about it.

That's why lol we have all brains to use and think.
I think it is mostly the poor... They do not have other recreations to keep them busy so it's all they have in mind. They should have other things to do instead of just thinking about intimacy all the time.

But many Chinese Filipinos are Catholic. The late Cardinal Jaime Sin was one.

The Phillippines are a hodgepodge of different peoples with different languages and cultures. My guess is that people who emigrate from the Phillipines to other nations mostly tend to be from a few ethnic groups.

I think though that the Roman Catholic church sees the Philippines and some areas in Latin America as almost their last bastions. They have no other choice but to effect more changes or the Vatican's influence in the world will just keep on waning. Not sure what the next pope is going to do (we don't even know who that will be), but I think that this surely is one of the issues that needs to be addressed.
Effect more changes ? Like what ?

Its odd that priests who cant marry and have families give advice on family planning (or lack of it). You'll see poor families who can barely feed one child have multiple kids.. now thats a travesty. I'd be ok with the church advocating for no birth control if they agreed to house/feed the children the poor folks can't afford.. doubt they would offer to do that.
How can the church support birth control using contraceptives if it is againts the Catholic teachings ? They cannot just impose something like that in the Philippines ( because of the growing population ) while going againts the Catholic teachings. The church encourages Calendar method, that's the only natural way accepted by the church.

Whatever it was, IMO, that's what they still are to this day, inherently!

I've worked with Philippino's for over a decade now, in the health care industry, and what do I see in these people? A strong flavor of Buddism!

And in Mexico, it's no different! Before the Spanish, what were they then and what are they still today!!!

It would be so beneficial if they went back to their roots!
We are happy being Catholics !

Buddism ? Where is that ? We don't have that in the Philippines. There might be some Chinese Temples but they're found in just few places. Filipinos are mostly Catholics. We are no.3 most catholic country in the world after Brasil and Mexico.

When I talk to the legal Philipino's at work, they dream of the day they retire there and live like kings and queens, banking on the fact that the population there will grow unrestrainedly, and they hip-hip and hurray about their getting a $5 massage while over there, and the cheap domestic help! IMO, I don't think their "calculators" are working very well!
Most of the Chinese people in the Philippines are already Catholics... I even know so many Chinese Filipinos who are very active in the church.

You are from the province... I don't think the Chinese live there, so how can you say that ? majority of them live in the city... Almost all of them who live in the downtown Iloilo are all Catholics.There are even so many who are in Catholic schools. The Chinese in the Philippines are already almost Filipinos in ways and in religion.
