The European country will also allow same-sex couples to adopt children, and will allow lesbian women to use sperm donors to make children.
(LifeSiteNews) – Switzerland became the latest European country to formally recognize same-sex “marriage” in law during a referendum Sunday.
“Official results showed the measure passed with 64.1% of the vote while more than half of all voters approved in each of Switzerland’s 26 cantons, or states,” CBS News reported. “The vote – years in the making – is set to bring the Alpine nation into line with many others in western Europe and wraps up an often tense campaign between rival sides.”
Same-sex couples have had civil unions since 2007, but now their relationships will be recognized as equal to the marriages of one man and one woman.
The law will also allow lesbian women to procure donor sperm to impregnate themselves, as well as same-sex couples to adopt children.
“With this, all couples will in the future be treated equally before the law: all can enter into a civil marriage, with the same rights and obligations,” Justice Minister Karin Keller-Sutter said.
Conservative opponents said they hope their outreach efforts to stop the referendum will lead to a better understanding of the harms of the LGBT agenda.
“On our side we have tried to draw attention to the central problem, the one of children and medically assisted procreation,” said Benjamin Roudit with the Christian Democratic People’s Party, according to CBS News. “On that point, I think we have succeeded in raising awareness among the Swiss people and we will still be here when other steps will be proposed.”

That WAS one of the most conservative Western countries.
>> will be recognized as equal to the marriages of one man and one woman.
These days many of the on ramps the broad way that leads to destruction come with claims folks are being tolerant and progressive if they just bow to the agenda of the homosexuals.
Doesn’t matter that much.
A couple more years and they’ll be a majority Mooslim #hitole.
At least they got to vote on it and weren’t just ordered to accept it.
Progressively becoming more godless and celebrating it. Not a formula for ending well.
And you believe that this was also a fair vote? The Liberals control the world. But I have to admit, people are SO ignorant regarding the evils of homosexuality that they are to blame also.
Drugs and debauchery are all the rage now, it will turn and likely get ugly.
Jesus is coming for those that trust in Him. The rest of the world is going in to the tribulation.
This pretty much the biggest biblical sign of the end times. And it is happening all over the world. Everywhere has been infiltrated by the evil ones.
I don’t want to hear about any success of any “referendum.“ Such popular referenda have been rejected wholesale by other countries, most notably mine.
What if the Swiss vote had gone the other way? Do you think leftists in and outside of that country wouldn’t have gone straight to court to have the people’s will overturned? In a split second.
