"I'm going to put water on the forehead, and after I'll embrace the young fellow". However, the priest is speaking French and the story appeared on a local news website of Martinique and Guadeloupe, French territories in the Caribbean Sea.

"And then, I'll kiss the little kid - because he'll have become a little Christian". The clergyman then tells the child to: "calm down, calm down, you must calm down". I'll scream louder than you, okay?

A video showing a priest slapping a baby during a baptism has gone viral.

The man, believed to be the baby's father, seemed to have had enough of the priest's disturbing behavior and pulled the baby from the priest's arms, pushing him away before the video had ended.

"The way he was holding the child was already a warning sign". "I was trying to calm him down; I didn't really know what to do".

The ceremony, which is taking place in French, appears to show the child getting more distressed and seemingly annoying the priest.
