Relatives shocked as priest slaps baby in the face during baptism

Short-Tempered Priest Slaps Toddler

Short-Tempered Priest Slaps Toddler

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

The man and woman are recorded attempting to pull the baby away from the priest.

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

"I don't care if you're a pastor, priest or one of Jesus 12 disciples", one angry viewer tweeted. "If. You".

People have more than enough reasons to be outraged these days.

A disturbing video has emerged of a priest slapping a baby across the face as he administers baptism.

Entertainers who have deals with Fox are now denouncing Fox News
Director Judd Apatow , who said he hasn't worked with Fox since 2002 , called on those who work at the company to speak out. Levitan, 56, pointed to comments by host Laura Ingraham that child-detention centers were "essentially summer camps".

The horrified parents are at first anxious when the priest holds the baby in a vice-like grip to stop him from wailing.

Finally, the man believed to be the child's father interjects, and removes the child from the situation before the video cuts out.

The priest won't let go, however, as he holds the stunned baby to his chest, with his hand over the baby's face to muffle the howls.

The video first gained attention after a Reddit user posted the clip in a subreddit with the title "This happened today in France, I'm really shocked". "Calm down", the priest continues before suddenly slapping the infant's cheek. "I would have pulled baby away until he calmed down", another wrote.

Unbelievably, there were some commenters who defended the priest's actions.

The exact date of the incident are unclear, although the video surfaced on the internet on Wednesday.
