Outraged relatives snatch baby from priest after he SLAPS the child because it won’t stop crying during baptism
The French clergyman hit the baby with his left hand after losing his temper
His relatives looked shocked and had to wrestle the child from the priest's grip
The footage of the bizarre baptism was captured in a French-speaking church
This is the bizarre moment a baby's relatives are forced to wrestle their child away from a French priest who slapped it during its baptism.
The clergyman hit the child in the face with his left hand after he lost his temper when the child would not stop crying during the ceremony.
The outraged man and woman watching on, who appear to be his parents, react in shock and step in to snatch their baby back.
It is not known when the footage was filmed but it was captured in a church where the ceremony was conducted in French.

I want to know who they are, what they believe, why they are nonreligious. You have some countries where huge percentages of people — Czechs, Scandinavians — now call themselves atheists. Canada is experiencing a huge wave of secularization. This is happening very rapidly.

Do any Universities offer study about  (the history of) Atheism?

Interesting links Joan.

I've not been impressed with any religion or philosophy that has no scientific evidence to back it up.  The violence resulting from most of them is a very good reason to be not only unimpressed, but anti-.

"Sikhism has a concept of the Just War. It's called Dharam Yudh, meaning war in the defense of righteousness."

Buddhism and violence: "in Myanmar, avowed Buddhist monks have led a “new trend that largely disregards the basic beliefs and practice of Buddhism.” Ethno-religious civil strife in Myanmar has taken on an especially ugly character as a result."
