Rev Fr Stephen Klasek, Priest in viral social distancing baptism photograph on various social media platforms says the act was staged to puke funny reactions.
Saint Mark Catholic Church of Manchester, Tennessee in a Facebook post on Tuesday said “this is what Fr. Steve said about this:
1) The family had requested for him to do this pose as copied from several posts of priests circulating around the internet. He agreed because he thought it was funny. (2) The water in the water gun is not holy water and was squirted towards the dad and not the baby for humor impact”.
Earlier posts on various platforms suggested that the Priest, Rev Fr Stephen Klasek had a “water gun baptism”.
The parish added that the said post was meant to be fun and not what is seemingly circulating on various platforms indicating that he was baptizing an infant with a water gun containing holy water.
