The video clip of the song "Ateo", starring C. Tangana and Nathy Pelus and engraved inside the Cathedral of Toledo During the past month of September has caused a schism among the religious authorities of the Castilian-Mancha capital.
It is a controversial video in which Madrileño and Argentina appear dancing sensually (Tangana rubs her crotch with the Pelus Penchas) inside the temple.
Some scenes loaded with sensuality in sacred terrain that were recorded with permission from the Primado Cabildo, Juan Miguel Ferrer Grensche, but that the archbishopric "absolutely did not know" its existence.
For the Dean, the controversial video clip "presents the history of a conversion through human love". Meanwhile, the archbishopa "disapproves of the images" and affirms that the faithful "have been just injured by the misuse of a sacred place."
However, the dean has apologized for "" Some people can cause displeasure "this video or hurting their sensitivity but stresses that the lyrics of the song is accurate:" I was atheist, but now I think, because a miracle like you He has had to go down from heaven. "
In addition "at certain attitude of intolerance contrasts the understanding and reception of the Church, as manifested in the final sequences of the video," the Dean continues.
Although it recognizes that it is true that the video uses "a provocative visual language", Ferrer points out that it does not affect faith. "It is a language proper to the culture of our time and has taken care of the good that it can produce in the far away," she says.
In this sense, Ferrer assures that the Primate Cathedral "has tried to maintain a sincere dialogue with the cultural demonstrations of the moment, trying to respond to what today asks for the Church."
A statement that, far from zanjar the controversy, has been received with surprise on the part of Catholics and laity that has forced the Archbishopric of Toledo to issue another statement with a virtually antagonistic version to that of Dean.
Meanwhile, the statement issued by the Azobisplay of Toledo "deeply regrets these facts and disapproves the images recorded in the first temple of the archdiocese."
A video, on which they manifest "absolutely ignore" the "existence, the content and the final result of the recording of the video clip".
Likewise, he wanted to ask for forgiveness to those who have felt "just wounded by the misuse of a sacred place" and undertakes to "develop a protocol for the recording of public diffusion images in any temple."
With the most harshness, the priest and member of the Cathedral of Toledo, Feliz Gm Bartolomé, who has ensured feeling "great indignation by the video clip" as he considers that "seriously offend God and to the dignity of the temple."
Likewise, many Catholics have manifested themselves in social networks requesting the religious authorities who employ an act of repair in the cathedral according to the rules established by canon law.
A call that, for the moment, has not obtained an answer on the part of the ecclesiastical authorities and the faithful have already organized a prayer of the Rosary in the Plaza del Town Council for this Sunday.Updated Date: 09 October 2021, 18:19
