Heartless priest refuses to baptise baby due to ‘unholy’ birthmark

A heartless priest refused to baptise a baby because of a birthmark he claimed was “unholy”.

Maria Khvostantseva claimed he local priest refused to baptise her one-month-old daughter because of her large birthmark.

The mum, 22, claimed she showed a photo of the girl to the priest who then turned down the baptism.

She claims the Christian priest claimed he did not know if the birthmark was contagious or how other parents would react in Russia.

Maria also said that the priest had asked her to not share the case in social media because it was “unholy”.

And then priest offered to carry out the baptism, but only if she paid him £45 (4,000 RUB).
