HOLLYWOOD, August 30, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – Elaine Bradley is the drummer of a chart-topping rock group. She chose to use that platform to highlight the harms pornography inflicts on society during a nationally televised TV appearance, wearing a homemade t-shirt that says “Porn Kills Love.”

Bradley explains the wardrobe choice she made during the Neon Trees’ appearance on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” last year in a new interview with the anti-porn group Fight the New Drug.

“I hate porn,” she says. “I don’t think anyone benefits from it – except monetarily, of course.”

The rocker says that she had considered herself an opponent of pornography and its harmful effects “for a long while” before discovering the organization. “I had even tweeted a link to a lengthy article about the damaging effects of porn long before I had heard of Fight the New Drug.”

After she saw its “Porn Kills Love” t-shirt, she was inspired.

Bradley, who was pregnant at the time, wrote the slogan on one of her own white t-shirts with a black Sharpie marker and proudly wore it on NBC.

“You should sell pregnancy tees so I don’t have to make my own,” she tweeted after the show.

The mix of positive and “sarcastic” responses she received convinced her that she had accomplished her goal of making people think about the impact 24/7 porn-on-demand is having on the children and families.

Now a mother of three, Bradley says she is happily married and considers herself “pro-sex” within the context of marriage. That’s why she speaks out against the way pornography distorts sexuality and imitates love.

“Let’s remember that lust isn’t love,” she says.

Families increasingly find themselves threatened by the changes pornography creates in one, or both, partners, she says.

“Porn is not healthy,” she adds. “It does not strengthen relationships, and it changes the way a person thinks about sex, and thus their partner or potential partner. I’ve heard of too many marriages and relationships destroyed by porn addictions.”

A new study finds that someone who begins watching pornography has double the chance of getting divorced within the next two years.

“It is a real problem, and I want to draw attention to that!” she says.

Bradley, an outspoken Mormon, did missionary work in Frankfort, Germany, and attended Brigham Young University. She did not join the Neon Trees’ lead singer Tyler Glenn, who is homosexual, in his solo single this spring bashing the church over its upholding traditional sexual morality.
