Today’s Los Angeles Times has new evidence of just how far church leaders went to cover up child abuse. The Times got access to memos between now-retired Cardinal Roger Mahony and his second in-command, Monsignor Thomas Curry. The memos  reveal the effort to protect priests, who had abused children, from law enforcement. Ashley Powers, reporter for the Los Angeles Times, said the memos were “clearly written by people who did not think they would ever be made public.”

At least 75 more files will be released in a separate court settlement between the church and over 500 additional victims. Below, Warren talks to Powers and to Michael Rezendes, who was lead reporter on the Boston Globe‘s Pulitzer Prize-winning team that uncovered sex abuse among priests in Boston ten years ago.

They are dedicated to our society. They are only the leader who don't have any goal but have aim and know their responsibility and duty. They don't have any rules boundary.
