CBCP's Call for Reform

The conservative Catholic Bishops' Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) has finally released a statement calling for radical reforms against government corruption.

The Inquirer reports that CBCP President Angel Lagdameo said the following in a press statement:

In response to the global economic crisis that we are facing today which everybody knows about and in response to the pitiful state of our country, the time to rebuild our country economically, socially, politically, minus corruption is now.

The time to start radical reforms is not later but now. The time for moral regeneration which has been long delayed, the time for moral regeneration is now.

It's about time CBCP says its piece on the matter. This is way long overdue. As a concrete measure, might I suggest that purging be made starting from the top?
