American band Train has spoken out against anti-marriage equality group Protect Marriage for using their track “Marry Me” on the Protect Marriage website.
Fans wrote to Train to ask how the band feels about the video for “Marry Me” being used to campaign against the Marriage Amendment Bill, currently before New Zealand Parliament.
In response to messages from fans about this, the band would like to relay the following message:
“It was upsetting to us that ‘Marry Me’, a love song with no boundaries, was being used to promote an agenda we don’t subscribe to.
“We (Train) take the idea of marriage very seriously, and believe it is the right of all consenting adults, regardless of sexual orientation.
“‘Marry Me’ is about just that, finding that special love and making it last forever. Everyone should be allowed to have that.”
