WATCH: Hozier criticises baptism and the Catholic church in interview with Gay Byrne

Don't take him to church.

Stephen Fry caused quite a stir earlier this year on Gay Byrne's Meaning of Life when he criticised Christianity in general.

In these teasers for Gay Byrne's interview with Hozier, the young singer-songwriter explores similarly sensitive themes.

Hozier criticises the Christian idea that babies are born with original sin and must be cleansed of this through a baptism ritual to which they haven't consented.

Articulately and eloquently, Hozier also condemns the church's persistence in 'sticking their noses' into the 'relationships of two people' - saying that the Catholic doctrine can inspire people to 'fear being born, making love and dying.'

This one is bound to be a controversial must watch when it hits our screens this Sunday at 10.30pm on RTÉ.
