Switzerland’s parliament and the governing Federal Council supported the “Marriage for All” measure, and pre-referendum polls showed solid backing. Switzerland has authorized same-sex civil partnerships since 2007.Supporters said passage would put same-sex partners on equal legal footing with heterosexual couples such as by allowing them to adopt children together and facilitating citizenship for same-sex spouses. It would also permit lesbian couples to utilize regulated sperm donation.

ADVERTISEMENTOpponents believe that replacing civil partnerships with full marriage rights would undermine families based on a union between one man and one woman.The campaign has been rife with allegations of unfair tactics, with the opposing sides decrying the ripping down of posters, LGBT hotlines getting flooded with complaints, hostile emails and shouted insults against campaigners, and efforts to silence opposing views. headtopics.com

Switzerland, which has a population of 8.5 million, is traditionally conservative and only extended the right to vote to all its women in 1990.Most countries in Western Europe already recognize same-sex marriage, while most of those in central and Eastern Europe don’t allow wedlock involving two men or two women.

Supporters say it could still be months before same-sex couples can get married, mainly because of administrative and legislative procedures.Another issue on Sunday’s ballot was a measure spearheaded by left-wing groups to raise taxes on returns from investments and capital such as dividends or income from rental properties in Switzerland as a way to ensure better redistribution and fairer taxation.

The projection showed that proposal failing, with 66% voting against it in a country known for its vibrant financial sector and relatively low taxes, and as a haven for many of the world’s richest people. Read more: The Associated Press »

RuariBurt GREAT news! Nowadays, liberals demanding for freedom. Equal rights man-woman. Same sex marriage. Freedom for bestiality. Sex in public......etc. all the satanic culture! Well… it’s 2021 and there are people who believe on socialism and communism as if the 20th century never happened… This is nonsense! Y marry, Christianity has been misused, the community leaders have no say in the faithfuls lives no wonder ppl r moving to i$lm & other religion. Wake up fools

About gd time, tbh What year is it? A sad day for children when their right to a family life is abolished in favour of adoption by same sex couples. Nobody has a 'right ' to adopt. It should be the children who come first. Why is this even an issue in 2020 21st century - adults should be allowed to marry who they please.

Switzerland was neutral on Hitler so....not surprised. They're the Texas of Europe. RIP to one of the last bastions of sanity in western Europe. It’s disgusting how so many people blindly support things because “durr it doesn’t affect me” without thinking at all about the ramifications it has on society as a whole. Individualism is a plague.

Opinion | Why Jesus wouldn't be surprised by polling on Christians and taxesToo often, Christian politics gets reduced to abortion and same-sex marriage — topics Jesus never talked about. The Gospels do record him speaking out about economic justice, though. THINK sorry.. have you read all of the many ways the Bible says you must live a certain way or else be murdered? The only 'Christians' who are 'tolerant' and not to be lumped in with the others are the ones who IGNORE parts of the doctrine. THINK People always don't understanding policy ☺️☺️ THINK The actual doctrine of Christianity is just as hardcore as Islam, there's a reason it's 1 of 3 abrahamic religions (christianity, islam, and judaism). Christians have destroyed so many lives and cultures, you MUST admit your atrocities, or I can't listen
