((Two days of intense talks are over and the American Cardinals have drafted a letter that will be delivered to every parish priest and bishop in the country. Cardinal Theodore McCarrick/Archbishop of Washington "People need to know no place in priest-hood for those who harm the young." The letter comes out of meetings between the Cardinals and high ranking officials at the Vatican, including the Pope himself. John Paul the Second told the Cardinals he won't tolerate pedophile priests in his church. Roger Mahoney/Archbishop of Los Angeles "Three major goals are very simple. To make sure that children and young people are protected. " The church stopped short of adopting a true zero tolerance policy. It recommended a special process to defrock a priest who becomes 'notorious' and guilty of the serial predatory sexual abuse of children. But in other cases, they would leave it up to the local bishop. And that contradicts what one cardinal said earlier in the day. Cardinal Theodore McCarrick "Zero tolerance, prospectively, everybody's on the same page - if this ever happens again, that's it. Some bishops have knowingly transferred priests who have been accused of abusing children and that's caused some American Catholics to lose faith in members of the clergy. Chuck Karnick/American Catholic: We tried to hold them a little bit higher, and maybe they re not really as high as we hold them ))
