WEB Notes: This still has to be approved by their “Council of States” in December. Regardless, to have a bunch of people voting for something like this is insanity. One of the reasons stated was the high suicide rate among homosexuals…
These politicians are assuming “homophobia” is the cause. Now that is a made up term to begin with, however, the high suicide rate is due to depression and confussion within homosexuals overall. We have posted article after article about that.
Truth is being silenced little by little, day by day.
By an almost two-to-one vote met with ringing approval by pro-LGBT groups, the National Council of Switzerland voted this month on a measure to criminalize “homophobia” and “discrimination.”
The National Council, which is the lower house of the country’s bicameral legislature, voted 118-60 in favor of national councilor Mathias Reynard’s initiative, the Swiss newspaper Le Temps reports. Five members abstained from the vote.
The country’s Criminal Code currently bans “incitement to hatred or discrimination against a person or group of persons on the basis of their ‘racial, ethnic or religious’ affiliation,” the paper explains, punishable by a fine or up to three years in prison. Reynard’s proposal would add “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” to that list.
“Homophobia is not an opinion,” Reynard declares. “It’s a crime. One in five homosexuals attempted suicide, half before the age of 20. This victory sends a strong signal.” Organizations such as Pink Cross and websites such as PinkNews are celebrating his victory.
