Religion or Abuse? You Tell Me.

I came across this video on my Instagram feed looking for the usual tigers and leopards found on the @BlackJaguarWhiteTiger page and it really blew my mind. Let me start by saying I was raised Catholic and currently consider myself a very spiritual person. I have no doubt of the existence of God and respect all gods on whom others place faith. That being said, this just seems barbaric. I don't understand any of it. 


I'd love to know if you've baptized your children, or would, in this manner. If so, help me understand because from afar it seems an unnecessarily rough manner and horrible experience for the child.
