#voteYES

21 May 2015

On Friday Ireland votes in an historic referendum on legalising same-sex marriage.

Here's what the band say:  #voteYes.

“Commitment, love and devotion are some of the most impossibly great human traits. Trying to co-opt the word marriage is like trying to make love or devotion gender- or religion-specific. And that has to stop. Marriage is human-specific: a human commitment, one that transcends religion, transcends politics. It should be encouraged wherever, whenever and between whomever that love, that devotion and that commitment exists.  #voteYES"
