What Sort of Weird Mop-Slapping Church Ritual Is This?

I know I haven’t been to church much lately, so maybe you can help me out.

Do they do baptisms differently now?

BroomBaptism

I don’t know what church that is, or where it’s located, or what possible reason anyone would have for doing that… and the comments on this post aren’t helping.

Is the pastor washing away their sins or making them really dirty?

Maybe this is a new way for the church to stay hip. (As one commenter said, it’s the “Holy Slaptism.”)

Or maybe the tithe money just hasn’t been coming in as expected.

Someone has to know the answer…

An attempt to reach one of the people identified in the videos was unsuccessful.
