A priest slapping a distressed baby during a baptismal service, has been condemned.
The clip above shows the baby being held in a woman’s arms in front of the church.
It then shows the priest, grab the child’s head repeatedly, before eventually slapping the child in an attempt to get it to stop crying.
While doing this, the priest uttered the words “Calm down”, to the dismay of the child’s family. The family remained quiet for a few moments after the incident, but then the baby is grabbed out of the priest’s arms by the child’s father.
Did it take too long for the family to react?
