The national Council is in session. Even when he meets a special session, its decisions are always under a serious claim. According to the Federal Constitution, women and men have a mandate to act in the name of God the Almighty. You are able to do that?
Who is sitting in the Federal Parliament, represents the first well itself, the electorate, the party, the particular interests of associations. But God? What parliamentarian, what is the MP knows the interests of God? No one. So none of the national councils can redeem the claim, to act in the name of God. Until the mid 60-ies of the last century is likely to have a high consensus on the idea of a Christian God ruled. God is a man. He exists in the Afterlife, omnipotent, immutable, eternal.
It is honest to delete the phrase "In the name of God the Almighty" from the Federal Constitution.
Although surveys show again and again a surprisingly high percentage of modern people who believe in a higher Power. You would ask for but in the National Council and Council of States, who was God, would the different theories. An Image of the company. Switzerland has become the world vividly long been heterogeneous. The Christianity is only one of the interpretation factors among many. And even among Christians, it would be more in agreement about who God is.
It is honest to delete the phrase "In the name of God the Almighty" from the Federal Constitution. Our diverse society can no longer agree with a large majority, what is God and what are the consequences to be drawn from it. Would godless Switzerland? Not in the least. It is not enough to know God in the Federal Constitution merely listed. Is asked the fact.
if God is a Symbol for a humanist politics, would be the Parliament another statement in the preamble, however, to act in the name of God the Almighty. Then, if the ladies and gentlemen of the councils, the obligation to implement, according to which "the strength of a people is measured by the Welfare of the Weak". But God, as an advocate of humanism merely is one of many interpretations. It remains only to delete the reference to God.
excerpt from the first page of the Swiss Federal Constitution with the preamble and the phrase "In the name of God the Almighty!".
The closed Christian West belongs to the past. You can summon these past desperately. Alone, it is of no use. In our country people with the most varied of the life-world philosophical attitudes. In the course of this social change must make a further, controversial icon in the debate. It stands on the roof of the Federal building in the cross. It is reminiscent of a prophet with a humanistic program. But it is also as instrument of torture of Roman imperialists to discipline troublemakers. What goes on in a Swiss or a Swiss, who look up to the Federal court to the cross, but not the Christianity belong to? It does not compel simply, the majority religion? Still, it is the Christianity, which this provides. But his relatives understanding for minorities, Jews, Muslims, atheists, free-thinkers would have to.
It also applies here: The cross! That would be a great expression of strength, Serenity and humility of the majority religion.
