Catholic priest slaps baby then grabs its face during Christening

Short-Tempered Priest Slaps Toddler

SHOCKING footage has emerged showing a priest's violent attempt to calm down a crying baby by slapping it during a baptism in France.

According to a Reddit user, the priest, speaking in French, can be heard saying, "Oh lala lala".

In the video, the priest can be seen making a shape of the cross over the baby's body before he begins to cry.

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.

Warning: The contents of the video may be disturbing. Second, there was nooo reason to slap a child like that.

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously reported that a Catholic priest, Reverend Father Lucien Ambunga, who was inflicted with the deadly Ebola virus, survived it.

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.

One user translated the footage into English and claimed the priest was explaining he would pour water on the child's forehead, saying: "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".

Many people online have been outraged by the priest's behaviour. "If I was the mother of that baby I wouldn't hesitate to push or slap the damn priest back".
