Toledo, Spain, Oct 8, 2021 / 14:39 pm
Archbishop Francisco Cerro Chaves of Toledo apologized Friday for the improper use of the city’s cathedral in a music video, which includes sensual dance scenes within the church.
The archbishop “was absolutely unaware of the existence of this project, its content and the final result,” the Archdiocese of Toledo said Oct. 8, adding that the archbishop “deeply regrets these events and disapproves of the images recorded” in the cathedral.
Spanish rapper C. Tangana released a music video for his song "Ateo" (Atheist) Oct. 7, made with Argentine singer Nathy Peluso. In the video, both perform sensual and provocative dances inside the cathedral.
Fr. Juan Miguel Ferrer Grenesche, dean of the cathedral, justified Oct. 8 the recording of the music video in the sacred space.
