Hozier – Take Me to Church Lyrics 5 years ago
I agree 100% with what you've said. I'd like to also add that I think the line
"That's a fine looking high horse
What you got in the stable?"
is a reference to many skeletons in the church's closet, the high horse representing the Church's public face and position on homosexuality, while the "what you got in your stable?" line essentially asks the church "what other information about you do you not present to the public?" Read together, the lines essentially say "That's an interesting holier-than-thou position you have on homosexuality... Surely then, you must have a pristine record regarding everything else, as well?" In other words, the lines point out that the Church is in no position to judge what constitutes "pure" and "impure" love.
That's what I think at least... and I think it speaks to the accuracy of your interpretation.
