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

This is the freaky moment a baby's relatives are forced to wrestle their child away from a French priest who slapped it during its baptism.

When the crying still continues he raises his voice, slaps the boy on the cheek and tells him: "You're going to calm down".

But when the crying doesn't stop, the priest slaps the baby in the face.

His aggression prompts an immediate reaction as the baby cries more loudly, its relatives look shocked and another woman comes over to try to calm the situation by putting her hand on the clergyman's chest as if to hold him back.

Another one said: "Who wants to fund me a trip so I can go slap him!" I'll scream louder than you, OK? "Slap. My Child. Imma show you that these hands can do more than show you that I'm praying [sic]". After several failed attempts, the priest smacks the baby on his face. But he soon loses his temper and hits the child in the face.


It's not yet clear exactly where and when the incident captured in the video took place. "I would have gone ballistic if that was any of my kids".

The shocked congregation can be heard to gasp at the strike from the priest and the scene that was unravelling in front of them.

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.
