Catholic priest slaps crying baby during baptism

Priest slaps baby

Another one said: "Who wants to fund me a trip so I can go slap him!" Because indecipherable. Stop crying, calm down.

The dad looks pissed, and people can be heard remarking "no no no", "sir, he is scared" and "that's not allowed".

It's unclear when and where the video was taken, Fox 8 reports.

When the crying still continues he raises his voice, slaps the boy on the cheek and tells him: "You're going to calm down". "Slap. My Child. Imma show you that these hands can do more than show you that I'm praying [sic]". After he fails to calm the child down, the priest ends up slapping the child, uttering the words "Calm down" in front of the toddler's surprised and shocked parents.

"The way he was holding the child was already a warning sign".

"This is disturbing, and has really upset me", another tweeted.

The clip, which has been widely circulating online, shows the shocked reaction as the a man who appears to be the father is forced to wrestle the child from the French clergyman.

Another outraged user wrote, "It's supposed to be a speech about how this child is joining the community through his baptism and he clocks the poor kid in the middle of it".

Unbelievably, there were some commenters who defended the priest's actions.

"He does not slap the baby, the hand just bounces with a touch, not a slap force", another claimed.

NAIJ.com gathers that at the start of the ceremony, the woman, believed to be the child's mother, was carrying the child while the priest began proceedings.

Before she struck, the master of ceremonies addressed directly to the child, urging him to calm down.

Another person said: "If that video would end with the father giving the priest a very strong bitch slap it would be flawless".
