Des citoyens influents, tels que Philibert Berthelier et Jean-Philibert Bonna, un membre du Consistoire lui-même, se rebellent et tentent de restreindre l’autorité du Consistoire et des pasteurs. Ayant déjà réussi à détourner les Genevois des pratiques catholiques, le Consistoire peut maintenant se concentrer sur d’autres affaires morales. Ainsi, dans ce registre, on trouve beaucoup de personnes convoquées pour avoir dansé, joué aux jeux de hasard ou chanté des chansons profanes. Le Consistoire semble se concentrer en particulier sur le problème des blasphémateurs à tel aspect que, vers los angeles fin de 1551, le Petit Conseil publie une ordonnance contre les serments frivoles et les blasphèmes.
