A disturbing video has emerged of a priest slapping a baby across the face as he administers baptism. The visibly upset clergyman is heard saying "calm down, calm down, you must calm down" before he slaps the child in front of a man and woman who appear to be his parents.
At the start of the clip the woman who appears to be the baby's mother is holding in her arms while the priest, wearing white robes, begins the ceremony next to a baptismal font.
The 40-second video has sparked outrage across social media with one user saying: "I probably would have slapped the dude myself".

Trump would start July 6 by taxing $34 billion worth of products and later add tariffs on an additional $16 billion in goods. The levies are in retaliation to USA president Mr Trump who imposed tariffs on steel and aluminium imported from the EU.
Naturally, the power of Christ only compelled the child cry louder, eventually prompting a man (presumably his father) to yank the boy away from the priest's almighty grasp.
Another person said: "If that video would end with the father giving the priest a very strong bitch slap it would be ideal". "Calm down", the priest continues before suddenly slapping the infant's cheek.
Internet users are confused, anxious and appalled at the priest's actions, with one person writing, "That was uncalled for".
