Shock moment parents snatch baby from priest after he SLAPS crying child

Priest slaps baby

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

A baby's relatives were forced to wrestle the child away from a French priest who slapped it during baptism.

The priest attempts to yank baby closer before a bearded man pulls the child away.

The woman can be heard saying something to the priest before the man has to physically remove the baby from the priest's arms.

"I'm going to put water on the forehead, and after I'll embrace the young fellow". Added another: "A priest slaps my baby and I'm putting him on the cross". "Slap. My Child. Imma show you that these hands can do more than show you that I'm praying [sic]". However, he soon becomes annoyed with the boy who will not stop crying, grabbing him by his face, raising his voice and telling the infant, 'Stop crying, calm down.

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".

No further details have been revealed about the family or whether or not the parents pressed charges for the priest's actions, nor has any representative from the Catholic Church released a statement regarding the priests behaviour.

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