A video of a Catholic priest slapping a crying baby in the face during a baptism has surfaced online.

The video, which was also posted on YouTube, has a French title that translates to "A priest slaps an infant during his baptism".

But when the baby continues to wail, the priest slaps the tot in the face with his left hand.

In the video the parents then try and take the child back from the priest, but the priest appears to refuse to let go for some time.

Having seen enough, a man thought to be the child's father steps in and tries to remove him from the situation - only for the priest to grip the boy by his neck.

As it carries on crying the priest says: 'Calm down, calm down, you must calm down'.


The child's relatives still appear to be smiling as the priest brings the baby's head towards his, but the baby reacts badly and flails its right arm towards the woman.

The disturbing video has been circulated on social media, but it is still unclear where it was filmed. I will scream louder than you. "Slap. My Child. Imma show you that these hands can do more than show you that I'm praying [sic]".

He manages to rescue the child and glares at the priest before the footage cuts out. But he soon loses his temper and hits the child in the face.

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". "Or any family. This is prevalent around the world".

Internet users are confused, anxious and appalled at the priest's actions, with one person writing, "That was uncalled for".
