The interpreters dancing to the rhythm of the bachata unleashed a controversy in the Catholic world of Spain
The controversy over the recording in the cathedral of Toledo of the video clip “Ateo”, performed by the Spanish C. Tangana and the Argentine Nathy Peluso, continues and the archbishop of the Spanish city, Francisco Cerro Chaves , has announced that he will purify the tempo next Sunday, in a day that will also serve to “repair sins” .
The interior of the Cathedral of Toledo served as the setting for ” Ateo “, a music video in which the Madrilenian and Argentine meet inside the religious temple and begin to dance the song before the fearful and expectant gaze of religious who they spy between the columns.
The recording, loaded with sensual scenes , had been allowed by the Cathedral Council and justified by the dean, Juan Miguel Ferrer, understanding that it presented “the story of a conversion through human love . “
In a letter, Ferrer acknowledges that it is true that the video uses “provocative visual language “, but ” does not affect faith, ” he points out. However, after the controversy, he apologizes in case “some people could dislike it” or hurt their sensitivity.
After the publication of the video clip last Friday, which has already had more than 4.6 million views on YouTube, the Archbishop of Toledo, Francisco Cerro Chaves, contradicted the dean and “deeply” regretted the recording, in addition to apologizing to the faithful for the “improper use of a sacred place.”
Some of the faithful also wanted to express their disagreement by gathering in front of the cathedral last night, carrying candles, to pray the rosary as an “act of reparation.”
The nude scenes were not recorded in the Cathedral, a space in which both artists limit themselves to dancing , yes, in a very sensual way, in spaces where works of art and murals are exhibited . According to Spanish media, the producer of C. Tangana paid about 30,000 euros to the cathedral council for the rent of the temple.
The dean cited the lyrics of the song to highlight that the message speaks of someone who did not believe in God but was transformed by the power of love. “I was an atheist, but now I believe, because a miracle like you had to come down from heaven,” says the chorus of the song.
“The video presents the story of a conversion through human love,” says the dean. “In addition, to certain attitudes of intolerance he opposes the understanding and acceptance of the Church, as manifested in the final sequences of the video.”
The priest acknowledges that the images have a “provocative visual language” , but says that this “does not affect faith” , because it is typical of “the culture of our time”, and must be understood in terms of “the good that it can produce. in those far away ”(of the faith of God).
Although the artists have not specifically commented on the controversy, the video is already a success. The controversy will have a new chapter on October 17 when Archbishop Francisco Cerro Chaves called on the Archdiocese to open the diocesan phase of the 16th synod with an invitation to “repair sins” as a result of recent events.
