Viral Video Shows Priest Slapping Baby During Baptism

Priest slaps baby at christening

The priest can be heard asking the child to calm down.

The ceremony, which is taking place in French, appears to show the child getting more distressed and seemingly annoying the priest.

The disturbing video, posted on Wednesday, has generated 245,898 views and 389 comments, but it is unclear where it was filmed.

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

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

The 31-year-old attacker is likely to start against South Korea and will be a threat from set-pieces. Before Granqvist's penalty, Sweden showed most of the attacking intent at Nizhny Novgorod Stadium.

The man standing next to the woman holding the baby, steps in and tries to remove him from the situation - only for the priest to grip the boy by his neck. "Slap. My Child. Imma show you that these hands can do more than show you that I'm praying [sic]".

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. After several failed attempts, the priest smacks the baby on his face. "I would have gone ballistic if that was any of my kids".

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

No further details have been revealed about the family or whether or not the parents pressed charges for the priest's actions, nor has any representative from the Catholic Church released a statement regarding the priests behaviour.

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