Generally, the Spanish Hierarchy is resolutely composed of Modernists, so this story just fits the picture I guess.

"Archbishop apologises for steamy video filmed in Spanish cathedral
Video shows rapper C Tangana and singer Nathy Peluso grind against each other inside Toledo Cathedral

The archbishop of Toledo has apologised to offended Roman Catholics after one of Spain’s most famous cathedrals was used as a location for a raunchy video that shows a couple grinding against each other in its hallowed precincts.

The video for Ateo (Atheist) features the Spanish rapper C Tangana and the Argentinian singer Nathy Peluso dancing steamily in Toledo’s 13th-century cathedral, much to the fascination of onlookers, among them a priest.

Elsewhere in the video, a naked but partially pixelated Peluso holds aloft C Tangana’s severed head, and he yanks her hair. The pulling of Peluso’s hair is an echo of one of the paintings inside the cathedral, which shows a demon pulling a woman’s hair to stop her reaching salvation. The painting is also used as the song’s artwork.

Within hours of the video dropping on Friday morning, the cathedral authorities were being asked to explain exactly how a racy video for a song with a less than religious title had come to be filmed in the splendid gothic cathedral.

In a statement issued late on Friday afternoon, the archdiocese of Toledo said the archbishop “deeply regretted what had happened” and had known nothing whatsoever about the project, its contents, or the final result.


“We humbly and sincerely ask for the forgiveness of all the faithful, whether lay people or priests, who have rightly felt wounded by this inappropriate use of a sacred place,” said the statement. The archdiocese, it added, would be revising its procedures to “ensure that nothing similar happens again”.

The statement came after the cathedral’s dean had acknowledged the reaction the video had prompted, but insisted both it and the song presented “the story of a conversion through human love”.

Juan Miguel Ferrer Grenesche cited the song’s chorus, which runs: “I was an atheist, but now I believe, because a miracle like you has to have come down from heaven.”

The dean admitted the video used “a provocative visual language”, but said it did not insult anyone’s faith and could even help bring back those who had drifted away from the church. “We’re sorry that some people may have been upset. We ask forgiveness for hurting their feelings. The aim was only ever to support a dialogue with contemporary culture while always respecting the faith of the church.”

The dean also said that the final scenes of the video, in which the singers pose for photographs with an altar boy, showed the church’s “welcoming and understanding” attitude.

In August, C Tangana was accused of sexism after posting a picture of himself surrounded by women in bikinis to promote his song Yate (Yacht). He responded by posting the same picture, but superimposing his own head on those of the women. The rapper replaced his own head with that of the singer Zahara, who was recently criticised by the far-right Vox party for dressing as the Virgin Mary in posters for a concert in Toledo."

I stopped caring what these clowns do 15 years ago.

They are not the same religion as me so what does it matter?

A public scandal deserve a public apology.  I think a fitting sentence would be a repeat performance in the Plaza de Toros de Toledo (with the bull present)

I noticed the Archbishop didn't publicly ask for God's forgiveness or mention how God was offended.

It's better than an earlier line that it was an invite from the cathedral canons, nothing to do with the Archbishop. Given their lack of reverence, it isn't clear men like him or Francis have much belief.

Why would he? They don't believe in God.

See, I get where you're coming from and I understand why that's your conclusion, but I don't think it's right.

Whenever I hear "archbishop" or "conference of bishops" at the beginning of a headline, I grimace at what's going to follow. I can't stand the lot of them. I'm pretty peeved about their inclusion of "the people on the margins" and exclusion of Almighty God. They do not practise or pass on the faith that's been handed down to them, and yet, they are still the successors of the apostles. They're "as useless as Biden in a press conference" (now I forget if it was you, or Prayerful, or ChairmanJoeAintMyPrez, or someone else that I have to thank for that ingenious line), and in some cases, they're even detrimental to the Faith, but they still hold the keys.

I know there's corruption from the man at the top down to the Susan on every parish council, but that doesn't mean we can say that the Catholic Church is no longer the Catholic Church. Don't get me wrong, I want to see these guys go down just as much as my metaphorical SSPX neighbor; Divine Justice will take care of that one. We just can't explain it as "They're not Catholic, but I am." It's denying an invisible reality, which is that there a lot of extremely bad men currently occupying the apostles' seats.

I don't believe they are successors of the apostles.  You are not just talking about weak men here.  They are knowingly corrupt, apostate and in direct opposition to the Church established by Christ.  There is no rational way they can believe anything but that.  They admit, that the Church is not protected or holy and they want to align it with the world.  I am only judging them by their own admissions.

Just as I don't believe that Biden is the President of the United States, because the voting was rigged and Biden knew it.

These pretend "Bishops" are just as corrupt as Biden.  Neither are legitimate and that is why the world is in such a terrible mess.

Christina_S, it's going to get much worse.  Shake the dust off your sandals and take care of yourself in a Trad chapel.  Leave the dead to bury the dead.

I believe there are practicing warlocks and witches mingled into the Church, and that this cathedral should be avoided until it is Exorcised.

Defiling a 13th Century Cathedral is what warlocks do.  :censor:

I honestly think. Things like these should not be posted here, they could be an occasion to sin for someone else.. we should all avoid all things impure. Custody of the eyes 👀 be vigilant. Now go pray a hail Mary.

You are ignorant if you think Joe Biden got more votes than Obama.  No way were people that motivated to vote for that geriatric.

Why stop the count?  I have watched many US elections and never saw the count stopped overnight.

There is tons of eveidence of voter fraud in addition to the fact that mail in ballots are an open invitation to fraud.

Sticking you on ignore.  You are either a troll, or autistic or plain contrary.  Would suggest others do likewise.  You add no value here.

Christina_S, it's going to get much worse.  Shake the dust off your sandals and take care of yourself in a Trad chapel.  Leave the dead to bury the dead.
I'm getting there; it's a process. Currently, I'm at an FSSP parish, which has all the advantages of being isolated and apart from the banal modern liturgies, but comes at the cost of being recognized by the local ordinary and subject to his whims. I can't bring myself to go to a church that is not in full communion with Rome, so for now, this is where we're stuck.

I know it's going to get worse, but that oddly gives me hope: as the battle lines are drawn, Catholics will be forced to take a side. They'll either enter where the gate is wide and go down with all of the wicked shepherds, or they'll take refuge in a trad parish and rebuild from within as persecution intensifies.

Communion is binary. Partial Communion is a myth.
