French Priest captured slapping a crying baby across the face during baptism

Angry priest slaps baby who wouldn’t stop crying during baptism

A video of a French-speaking priest slapping a distressed baby during a baptismal service has garnered attention online in recent days.

The video clip shows a French priest attempting to comfort a crying baby at a baptism ceremony.

After attempting to console the crying child, the priest tries a different approach and slaps him across the cheek.

But when the crying doesn't stop, the priest seems to grow frustrated and slaps the baby in the face.

The father then pulls the baby away from the priest completely as the video ends. In the video, the priest can be seen making a shape of the cross over the baby's body before he begins to cry.

"Calm down, calm down, you must calm down", the priest says in French.

The exact location of the church and the date of the incident are unclear, although the video surfaced on the internet on Wednesday.

"The child was bawling and I needed to turn his head so I could pour the water". I'll scream louder than you, okay?

The family's shock becomes evident when the priest slaps the baby across the face.

The priest who pastors in a remote rural community of Itipo of DR Congo, returned to his parish on Friday, June 8, after recovering from the illness. Wouldn't want him christening my child'.

Emily MacDonald wrote: 'He wasn't a man of God.

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