An elderly priest seemed to lose patience with a crying baby and slapped the infant during a baptism. Video of the incident was originally posted on Reddit.com by a user who provided few details about the video.
In the video, the priest is seen consoling a baby who begins to cry. As the child’s wailing intensifies, the priest grips the boy’s face and shouts at the baby. The priest eventually loses patience and slaps the infant across the cheek.
A woman who is holding the baby and a man standing with them are alarmed and being to protest, as a woman, who appears to be a church official, approaches the priest.
The video has gone viral on the Internet.
