French priest slaps baby for crying during baptism ceremony


A viral video is causing concern online after it shows a priest slapping a baby during a baptism ceremony.

The man and woman standing with the baby - believed to be his parents - are visibly shocked, eventually wrestling the child away from the priest's hands.

The man who appears to be the child's father then steps in, prising the child out of the priest's grip, even as the cleric struggles for possession of the child.

I'll scream louder than you, okay? "I would have gone ballistic if that was any of my kids". The video features a woman wearing a red dress who seemed to be the child's mother.
