CWN Editor's Note: President Rodrigo Duterte of the Philippines has escalated his attacks on the country’s Catholic hierarchy, describing bishops as “useless fools.” Duterte told a crowd at the presidential palace: “These bishops that you guys have, kill them.” A spokesman later described the president’s words as hyperbole, saying that the suggestion to kill bishops was not to be taken seriously.
