The video clip of discord: quarrel between the archbishop and the dean of the cathedral of Toledo by C. Tangana and Nathy Peluso
"He has taken us by surprise, we are saddened, I suppose he knows better than anyone how the Church works and he knew what was happening," commented C. Tangana in an interview for Billboard Latin.
The dean, Juan Miguel Ferrer, was the one who authorized the recording of the video 'Ateo' by C. Tangana and Nathy Peluso.

The video clip also generated criticism from the faithful, who came to summon a collective prayer at the doors of the temple to achieve 'reparation' for what happened.
"It makes me sad because it was an opportunity to say something nice, modern and tolerant on the part of the Church. Suddenly, it has not turned out that way," said C. Tangana.
C. Tangana assures that the idea of the video was to compare the censorship of social networks with "other classic forms of censorship, such as that of the Church." "In the end, I thought we were more modern than we are," says 'El Madrileño'.

In the first instance, Dean Ferrer did not give importance to the images and argued in a statement that the story of the song represents a "conversion through human love." Despite acknowledging the "provocative" of the video, he also assured that "it does not affect faith," he said.
