400 Priests Defrocked in 2 Years

Pope Benedict XVI defrocked about 400 priests over the years 2011 and 2012 for molesting children, a new document obtained by the Associated Press has revealed. The document, the first to detail exactly how many priests have actually been defrocked, came from data that the Vatican had been accumulating ahead of a U.N. committee in Geneva this week. In the past, the Vatican had only come forward with the number of alleged sexual abuse cases that had been reported.
