Priest caught on tape violently grabbing & slapping baby during baptism

Priest caught on tape violently grabbing & slapping baby during baptism

While doing this, the priest uttered the words "Calm down", to the dismay of the child's family.

The father then pulls the baby away from the priest completely as the video ends.

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

The video has gone viral, and leaving viewers understandably upset.

The footage depicts what looks like a standard christening with the priest trying to perform the religious ceremony with a crying baby.

The baby's parents, visibly shocked, eventually manage to extricate the child from the priest's grip during the ceremony in Champeaux, about 50 kilometres (30 miles) southeast of Paris.

Strobe Light Warnings to be Added to 'Incredibles 2' Viewings in Theaters
The animated movie Incredibles 2 opened last weekend at No. 1, grossing more than $ 180 million United States worldwide. Lewis expanded on this concern in a blog post titled The Real Villain In Incredibles 2 - Strobe Lights (NO SPOILERS ).

"The child was bawling and I needed to turn his head so I could pour the water".

"And then, I'll kiss the lil' kid - because he'll have become a little Christian".

When the crying still continues he raises his voice, slaps the boy on the cheek and tells him: "You're going to calm down". "If this ever happens to my child best believe there's gonna a lot more then just slapping happening to his face". It is very clear from the video that the child was not liking the whole process and it started crying out loudly.

Suddenly, the priest appears unable to take it again and deals the hollering baby a quick slap in the face.

He hugs the child to his chest, possibly to try and calm him down.

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