Stocki I actually heard Hozier play the song on Jools a week or so back personally I didnt find the song overly offensive, because the brand of the Christianity he depicts I encounter regularly in Northern Ireland, and it is probably why I dont go to church overly regular, even though I have a deep faith in Christianity. I have to admit I didnt think the song was overly that good particularly lyricly. It didnt for me come close to the lyrics for instance of Nick Cave's 'God is in the House' suppose what is missing from Hozier is Nick Cave's satrical humor which is for me what sets the songs apart, or rather for me Nick Cave song comes to the conclusion that Christians just take themselves a bit to seriously, which I think is very true of Christians.

This is so relevant for the present Christian culture where judgement condemnation and criticism take a higher priority than care love and compassion. Well said Steve.
