To maintain as wide a fan base as possible, smart musicians steer away from taking positions on matters that polarize people.
U2 isn’t one of them.
The rock band from Dublin sent out the following tweet:
It’s in the shape of a heart. How cute, right?
Repeal the 8th is Ireland’s campaign to remove from its Constitution the 8th Amendment, which recognizes the right to life of people not yet born. So U2, a favorite band for many older Christians, thinks revoking a preborn baby’s right to life is a good idea—because apparently, a mother’s want of a dead baby is paramount to that baby’s right to life.
That little heart isn’t so cute now, is it?
