Editor’s note: Each week, WorldNetDaily White House correspondent Les Kinsolving asks the tough questions no one else will ask. And each week, WorldNetDaily brings you the transcripts of those dialogues with the president and his spokesman. If you’d like to suggest a question for the White House, submit it to WorldNetDaily’s exclusive interactive forum MR. PRESIDENT!

At today’s White House news briefing, I asked Presidential Press Secretary Ari Fleischer:

    Q: The president is not only a national role model, but a father. And he’s taken numerous stands on behalf of good morality. Now, Baltimore’s cardinal, Archbishop William Keeler, has taken a strong stance supporting zero tolerance of pedophile priests. And my question: As a devout Christian and father, the president agrees with the cardinal on this, doesn’t he, Ari?

    MR. FLEISCHER: Lester, you’ve heard the president speak about this himself, where he – where the President …

    Q: So he does agree?

    MR. FLEISCHER: … where the President, as he talked to the pope about [it] as well, expressed his faith that the Church is going to be able to move forward to address what’s been a very sensitive and important issue.

I then posed my second question to Fleischer:

Submit a question to the MR. PRESIDENT! forum.
