  • Priest slaps child

A Reddit user posted video that shows a priest slapping a baby during a baptism.

In a freakish incident, a baby's relatives were forced to wrestle the child away from a French priest who slapped it during baptism.

The priest then grabs the boy's face to look at him, once again repeating: "Calm down", before he raises his hand and slaps the baby, who screams even louder.

The priest then holds either side of the child's face and appears to slap the crying baby, raising his voice after he does so.

The outraged relatives then stepped in and snatched the baby away from the priest, after watching on in shock.

Finally, the man believed to be the child's father interjects, and removes the child from the situation before the video cuts out. I'm going to pour water on the forehead.

"Calm down!" the priest repeated aggressively, but the baby's cries increased.

The disturbing video has been circulated on social media, but it is still unclear where it was filmed.

The exasperated priest slapped the child on the cheek during the ceremony of baptism.

A couple presumed to be the parents is heard gasping at this in the video.

When the baby continues to cry he appears to slap the child across the face. The publication notes that he's obviously freaked out due to the fact that the child did not stop crying. "I would have gone ballistic if that was any of my kids".

The congregation gasps and admonishes him for his treatment of the child.
