Priest Slaps Baby Across The Face In The Middle Of Baptism

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

The bawling baby is being held by its mother when the elderly priest takes a grip of its head with his hand.

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

The shocking video of the scene which happened in an unknown French speaking country has gone viral and has been viewed hundreds of thousands of times.

The parents or god-parents of the child look to be in disbelief, unsure of what they had witnessed as the priest begins to pull the child close to him once again. I'm going to pour water on the forehead. I'll scream louder than you, okay?

People in the background of the video can reportedly be heard protesting the priests actions, making comments like "no no no", "sir, he is scared" and "that's not legal/allowed".

"I'm trying to figure out why no one slapped the old man back", one Facebook user said.

One added: "This is disturbing and has really upset me".

Another outraged user wrote, "It's supposed to be a speech about how this child is joining the community through his baptism and he clocks the poor kid in the middle of it".

The father then pulls the child away.

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

The congregation gasps and admonishes him for his treatment of the child.
