The department(PR) for a better and cleaner image for the Roman Catholic Church is working overtime to regain their followers trust especially those people the Catholic Church wants them to come back home meaning come back to the Catholic Church.

400 not 389, not 598 or 2,453 but 400. I gather Pope Benedict came up with that rounded (400) number in one of his mystical experiences?
Are these priests names known to the police authorities? or are these men just lurking around finding victims in the general population? How many doing jail time?

With all those priests around the world who committed crimes against the innocent, 400 were defrocked.

They may have been defrocked but the number of priests should be way higher because so many others are still being protected.
Many inside the Vatican.

Um, actually the first paragraph of the article says "nearly 400".

Be that as it may,_I_ would like to see a list of, if not names though that would be desirable, at least which countries they came from.

The whole catholic church needs to be gotten rid of.
