Angry Priest Hits Baby For Crying During Baptism

Angry Priest Hits Baby For Crying During Baptism

Shocking footage shows a Catholic priest violently slapping a baby in the face during a baptism to stop it crying.

Priest slaps baby in video that has gone viral after the clergyman lost his temper because the child wouldn't stop crying at its baptism.

The priest, by now visibly annoyed, then holds the baby's face in his hands, looks it in the eyes and slaps it hard on the cheek with his left hand.

Naturally, the power of Christ only compelled the child cry louder, eventually prompting a man (presumably his father) to yank the boy away from the priest's almighty grasp.

"I will spill water on the forehead, hmm?"

When the baby continues to cry he appears to slap the child across the face. However, the priest is speaking French and the story appeared on a local news website of Martinique and Guadeloupe, French territories in the Caribbean Sea.

The video has already been viewed over a million times on YouTube.

"I wonder how many millions of kids suffer inappropriately aged "discipline" like this behind the scenes in religious families who believe this is biblically sanctioned, though", One woman wrote.

In a 40-second clip posted online, the French-speaking priest is seen to lash out in frustration during the ceremony as the tiny child is held by a woman though to be his mother.

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