Priest Sparks Outrage By Slapping Baby Who Won’t Stop Crying During Baptism

As a parent, one of the biggest milestones in your baby’s life (aside from the actual birth) is their baptism. Okay, so not many people really bother with the ceremony these days, but those that do are incredibly proud to have their infant take part in this very spiritual occasion.

According to the Christian faith, Jesus emphasized the importance of baptism as a means of symbolically washing away the sins of his followers and helping them receive the gift of everlasting life following his return.

Needless to say, it’s a pretty significant occasion for believers and a lot of effort is put in to make sure the ceremony reflects this.

But one priest has shocked people by slapping a baby before its baptism:

For this reason, baptisms often prove to be pretty stressful occasions, but what makes them that much more taxing is the mere fact that they revolve around babies. While most of us can agree that babies are totally and utterly adorable, they sure do know how to make things difficult with their tendency to cry for what seems like hours on end.

It can be really difficult to know what to do to pacify a crying baby if nothing you’ve tried has worked. Babies are just stubborn like that and it’s not like they can help it, they’re just acting on their instincts.

So this begs the question, what do you do if you’re in the middle of a baptism and the waterworks start? You’re up there with the priest and your yet-to-be-baptized child, but that child just won’t stop bawling its tiny little eyes out?

Do you just ignore it? Do you ask to be excused so you can wait until the kid has calmed down enough for the ceremony to proceed? Do you try to hush the baby then and there with the whole congregation watching you?

While most people would be at a loss as to how best to approach the situation, one French priest has sparked outrage by doing something truly unthinkable at a baptism he was officiating.

When the baby in question wouldn’t stop crying, the priest thought the best way around it was to slap the infant in the face. Naturally, the baby’s parents were shocked by the priest’s disgusting actions – he’s certainly not a man of honor.

We hope that the child in question suffers no lasting psychological damage as a result of this incident.
