The U.S. Bishops' unfortunately did not go as far as they should have gone in order to satisfy the demands of U.S. Catholics. There was still a sense that they are protecting their brother priests. Whatever the perceived demerits of a Zero tolerance system or a one-strike-you're-out policy, especially in cases where there was one instance of abuse 45 years ago and succesful treatment, it was necessary for the Bishops to identify completely with abuse victims and concerned Catholics. However, it seems that they've done enough to silence the issue for now.
