If God isn’t real – “If the Heavens ever did speak” – then the only goods to be enjoyed in this life are the pleasures of food and sex. But seriously, this is probably one of the most sacramental songs every popularized – and it sacramentalizes the wrong values. The Popes of the last 300 years have endorsed St Thomas Aquinas.
That’s all there is left for humans to experience transcendence. In an interview with New York Magazine in March 2014, the artist Hozier stated: ‘Take Me to Church’ is essentially about sex, but it’s a tongue-in-cheek attack at organizations that would…

It takes rich Catholic sacramental language but re-signifies the imagery as a sexual encounter. The music industry is now much smarter than it was in the days of Judas Priest, Black Sabbath, and Slayer.
The devil doesn’t needs a league of heavy metal Satanists.
