Hozier – “Take Me to Church”

The music video, which recieved critical acclaim worldwide, not only follows the relationship between two men and the subsequent homophobic backlash they recieve, but it is also a metaphor with the protagonist comparing his lover to religion, specifically the Catholic Church.  The artist notes the song grew out of his frustration with Catholic Church teachings, which dominate social and political life in Ireland.
