What would you do?

In all honesty, I think I would have smacked this priest if he did this to my kid. 😠


"A family were forced to wrestle their baby away from a French priest who was baptising him, after the clergyman lost his temper and violently smacked the boy across the face.
In a video of the incident, the Catholic priest can be seen blessing the boy while making the sign of the cross with his hand over the child’s body. The baby then begins to cry loudly, disrupting the ceremony.
The priest, speaking in French, can be heard saying the boy is having a “tantrum” and he needs water poured on his head to become a “little Christian.” He then mutters “calm down, calm down, you must calm down” while visibly bristling with frustration. Suddenly, he snaps and strikes the child across the face.
The person who was filming the baptism can be heard gasping. The priest, reluctant to let go, can then be seen grabbing the baby’s neck and body before putting his face and hand over the boy's face to muffle his cries."


I missed this story when it came out in June of this year. Just stumbled across it tonight and was shocked and sickened by it. 


In Christ, 

Julie
