A Russian Orthodox priest sparked outrage on social media after a mother claimed he bruised and nearly drowned her toddler during an intense 'exorcism-like' baptism ceremony.
Priest Vasily Necheporenko, known by his church name Photios, was suspended for a year following the disturbing infant baptism ceremony, which ended with the child's family filing a police report.

The incident took place over the weekend at a small church in the city of Gatchina, around 40km from St. Petersburg. A video of the ceremony shows the priest taking the one-year-old baby and carrying it to the small baptismal font. According to the Russian Orthodox tradition, a child has to be dipped three times in holy water in order to be baptized.

The child is seen crying loudly and appears to be resisting. The priest tries to submerge the baby several times, forcefully pushing it inside the font, and then clumsily lifting it up.

Can the priest help it if the child was possessed? Me thinks not.
