Top Ten Reasons to Hate the Song "Take Me to Church" by Hozier

BigBrotherSucks

The Top Ten

1 It makes fun of Christians

It is most definitely mockery. The song itself uses religious metaphor which doesn't bother me. However, coupled with a video containing homosexual imagery does. There is a suggestive undertone that we are seeing more and more in media that suggests that a handful of psychopathic rednecks represent the mainstream Christian. I find it hypocritical that people who supposedly espouse "tolerance" are resorting more and more on bigotry and outright dishonest propaganda.

It doesn't makes fun of Christianity. It's profound in how it presents itself, so it can't simply be 'bashing' religion or taking the mickey out of it. This list is stupid. It's not a song that deserves to be hated.

The song is not bashing on Christians; rather those who undermine others.

This Hozier fella needs some Jesus

2 It's religious

Why do religious songs even have a place in this world - BigBrotherSucks

This song is not religious. It's a parody against religion and changes "church" to mean the bedroom for sex.

3 It's offensive
4 It went to the top ten despite its religions references

It should not even be allowed to play on the radios - BigBrotherSucks

5 It takes a swipe at the Catholic Church

Just because this guy doesn't agree with the Catholic Church and just because at this local church people didn't agree with homosexualality doesn't mean he needs to slander an entire religion

What a load of crap he is talking about - BigBrotherSucks

6 It is against gay people

If anything, this song promotes love.

It should be banned everywhere - BigBrotherSucks

8 The lyrics

Actually, the lyrics are probably some of the most meaningful; in fact, it mocks religion. Just because something "is religious" does not make it pointless. It expands our discussion and moves us forward in society. So look below the surface and find out what Hozier really means.

The lyrics have so many layers to their meaning. You just have to uncover them.

The Lyrics as you can all see are religious which makes it pointless - BigBrotherSucks

9 It sounds bad

I cringe when I hear it on the radio and swap stations. I didn't even know about the underlying messages until I saw this site - I just hate it too much to care.

Hozier sounds really soulful in this song; not to mention that the melodies are really captivating.

It is the most unmelodious song, very unpleasant to the ears, and it sounded old from the very first time I heard it. It didn't't even invited me to listen for the lyrics

Never knew what the hell he was singing about cause I too switch station when I hear this terrible souding song.
