It is a subject that actually moves the Federal policy: the marriage for all. However, in the case of cantonal people, elections, the question of whether a candidate in favour of candidates of the same-sex marriage will be used.
Often it is used as an indicator of how society is liberal someone. In the case of the "Tages-Anzeiger"-portraits of the governing Council elections, all previous Zurich cantonal councillors said "Yes" to marriage for all, Ernst Stocker (SVP) "rather Yes". Natalie Rickli (SVP), the candidate for the governing Council, thinks differently today than even a few years ago. "Gay and lesbian couples should be allowed to marry and adopt children," she says.
"With a lot of couples
Rickli talked" sitting in the national Council in the law Commission. There she was, in February, the marriage for all was sent in the consultation. "In the Commission and also private, I have talked with many same-sex couples," says Natalie Rickli. The need to be able to marry, be very large, which is why you have changed your mind. The SVP cantonal councillor candidate, the adoption of support legislation. If a gay could offer sexual Couple of a child a home that otherwise has none, then that is a good thing.

most of the Canton councillors and Kantonsräte think how Rickli. In a survey of Smartvote 152 have participated out of a total of 180 previous Canton councils. Two-thirds say "Yes" or "rather Yes" to same-sex marriage and adoption rights for gay couples. Except in the case of the EDU, the SVP and the EVP, a clear majority of the groups supported the concern.
"Listen, how old am I?"
Patrick Hadi Huber 38, President of the Homosexual working group, Zürich (HAZ) – came as a young man from Thurgau to Zurich. Earlier it was to him "a little uncomfortable" to kiss in public with another man. Today, the "totally easy". The reason for this is his own personal development – but also the more open society is for Huber.
The HAZ asks the candidate to the Zurich election campaign since the age of 13, and how they relate to queer concerns. "The bourgeois parties have become much a society of liberal," says Huber. Today, the marriage for all the majority was capable of. Of the applicant in the Canton of councillors and cantonal councils, according to the HAZ-platform "rainbow policy" a large majority in favour of same-sex marriage.
grew up, The younger Generation of politicians with these issues, says Huber. Almost everyone have personal contacts to people from the LGBT Community.
That there is a generation trench, is shown in the FDP. "Listen, how old am I?", a member of the Parliament, Daniel Schwab asks on the phone. The 63-Year-old is one of the few liberals who is against the marriage for all. "We don't need to change because every minority the law," says Schwab. To be a Catholic, conservative and family Background was responsible for the fact that he rejects same-sex marriage.
in contrast, the clear majority of the FDP parliamentary group in the Zurich cantonal Parliament, for example, André Müller thinks, according to Smartvote. He was always for marriage for all, the weighting of the individual freedom highly, and says: "Our party is socially liberal. The younger politicians have inspired many." Also the group President of the CVP and the SVP will confirm that the parties have become more open to the concerns.
The pointier the most criticism against the marriage for all in the member of the Parliament comes from the EDU. In 2016, the party wanted to vote on the marriage as a community of women and men in the cantonal Constitution, and failed with a no-share of more than 80 percent. Nevertheless, the EDU-Kantonsräte stick to their opinion. Erich Vontobels values are based on the Bible. "This is changing, as we know, never," he says. Marriage is something Sacred, the husband and wife must remain subject to change. Children growing up in same-sex couples, was not appropriate to the species.
Peter Häni the "of course". And he says: "people who are homosexual refer to the sexual couples as unnatural, be discriminated against today."
Also available with "C" not taboo
you can revise, despite the Christian Background, his views, shows a member of the Parliament Beat Bloch (CSP). Four years ago, he said no to marriage for all. He has denied-sex couples, although never to the rights, nevertheless, the marriage was for him very closely with the Church associated with it.

Bloch supported today is that homosexuals can enter into-sex couples a marriage. This was also with a "C" in the party name, not taboo. "Exclusion is not a Christian value," says Bloch. The policy should accommodate changes in society and should not remain in the old company pictures.
Beat Bloch has same-sex couples in the circle, was also close to a "wedding" when two men in a registered partnership. As a lawyer, he also advises gay couples. There, he makes the experience that they must still fight for their rights.
"In the hospital, a woman receives information about the condition of her husband, even if both of them get along so badly together." In the case of same-sex couples, this was not the case, even if you have lived for 25 years in love together. To be able to grievances such as fix it, see Bloch, the religious charging of the concept of marriage. In the political operation, he observed that hardly anyone is vehemently against the marriage for all, and if so, then it means: "let them."
