Protestant churches vote in favour of same sex marriage
The possibility of gay marriage being legalized in Switzerland may have taken a step forward after the Federation of Protestant Churches voted in favour of same sex marriages.
At a meeting in Bern yesterday, delegates voted 45 to 10 to drop their opposition.
The move will now allow different cantonal churches and pastors to officiate same sex marriages, if the law allows.
Parliament is due to discuss gay marriage early next year.
