WATCH: The Baptism That Shocked The Internet From Kenya

A Catholic priest from Kenya shocked the internet in January 2017 when his baptism video went viral, many perceiving it to be quite bizarre.

The video shows an unusual way of baptism. Baptism is a Christian rite in which water is sprinkled on the congregant to signify a new life under Christ.

The video revealed the priest literally drenching children in water as he baptised them. He would pour on water incessantly, a whole bucketful of water and completely drenching the infants. He would even ask the parents to pour water on the children, despite apparent wailings.
