Priest suspended after slapping baby during baptism

Priest suspended after slapping baby during baptism

Another one said: "Who wants to fund me a trip so I can go slap him!" "I was saying "be quiet" but he wouldn't calm down", the priest told France Info radio on Friday.

The dad looks pissed, and people can be heard remarking "no no no", "sir, he is scared" and "that's not allowed".

It is still unclear where the video was filmed.

After attempting to console the crying child, the priest tries a different approach and slaps him across the cheek.

The family's shock becomes evident when the priest slaps the baby across the face. Ohlalalala! I will scream louder than you.

A video showing a priest slapping a baby during a baptism has gone viral.

Trump tells GOP to 'stop wasting their time' on immigration
These were the stories the media ignores, he said. "They don't talk about them, very unfair", the president continued. A vote on the compromise bill was abruptly postponed and rescheduled first for Friday, and then later, next week.

"I'm trying to figure out why no one slapped the old man back", one viewer posted. Seems like he was getting frustrated.

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

NAIJ.com gathers that at the start of the ceremony, the woman, believed to be the child's mother, was carrying the child while the priest began proceedings.

The priest who pastors in a remote rural community of Itipo of DR Congo, returned to his parish on Friday, June 8, after recovering from the illness.

Orthodox baptisms are usually done "forcefully" but many online commentators have criticised the priest's rather rough approach.

The shocked congregation can be heard to gasp at the strike from the priest and the scene that was unravelling in front of them.
