In an attempt to keep a crying child quiet, a French priest did the unthinkable. Most of us think that these men of God are the most peaceful, non-violent human beings to live on this Earth. However, a viral video released by the Daily Mail proved that this is not always the case.
An old French priest, who remains unnamed, surprisingly slapped a young child in the face. It was clear that he was conducting a baptism, however, the kid he was supposed to bless was uncomfortable.

We can see from the video that the child was inconsolable. The priest tried to calm it down but it was obvious that he was beginning to get irritated. Hiding behind a smile, the old man began aggressively holding the baby’s face.
When he couldn’t stop the tears, the priest then decided to slap the child across the cheek. It took everybody by surprise and the parents were unable to act immediately because of shock. The clergyman hugged the child while still forcing it to calm down but another man, who we assume to be the father, pried his kid away.
