Coca-Cola Wants Switzerland To Vote To Criminalize 'Homophobia'
Forbes ^ | February 4th 2020 | Jamie Wareham

Switzerland goes to the polls on February 9 in a national referendum that could criminalize homophobia–and Coca-Cola has made the bold move of supporting calls to make the anti-gay hate speech illegal.

If the country approves the move, it will criminalize homophobia to the same extent as other forms of discrimination based on race, gender and religion.

The Coca-Cola Company in Switzerland has publicly shared support for the initiative.

Early indications are that the referendum has the majority support of Swiss voters, says The Local.

But the campaign hasn’t been without controversy.

The youth wing of the Swiss Peoples Party (SVP), the national-conservative, right-wing populist party, has called for a boycott of Coca-Cola in response to their support.

Launching their “Equality Manifesto,” the Coca-Cola company says:

"For a Switzerland of living #together. It is no coincidence that Coca-Cola is campaigning today for a colourful and indiscriminate Switzerland. Because Coca-Cola's credo - worldwide and here in Switzerland - is unquestionably equality, diversity and tolerance.

"We are steadfastly committed to equal rights, diversity and tolerance. Discrimination and exclusion are not acceptable to us in any form."

The brand backs up their words by reminding those reading the manifesto the company has achieved a 100% continuous score on the HRC's Business Equality Index since 2006, which measures equity and equal rights in the workplace.

The campaign, features as its central image as five Coca-Cola bottles shaped out with words in five European languages that say:

"Coca-Cola is enjoyed by many in Switzerland. Regardless of age, gender, skin colour, relation or sexual orientation. The vast majority in a small country like Switzerland requires understanding and solidarity from everyone.

"We also want to do out bit by bringing people together. Thats why we take a stand for a colourful and non-discriminatory society.

This is upsetting me to the point that I'm getting p**sed off. Not just Coca-Cola actively trying to push their partisan political ideology but trying to criminalize...what exactly?

What is "Homophobia" and do you criminalise it? Is it having the opinion that marriage is the union of man woman? Would a person go to jail for questioning the purpose of gay pride parades or receive a fine for pointing out the disproportionate high rates of fatal STDs in same-sex relationships?

In this age of liability, does the world leader in selling brown sugar-water ever worry about getting sued for America’s obesity crisis?

Wall Street is the biggest promoter of homosexuality and moral decay across the globe. Woke Capital supports every degenerate social policy because they make money off of it.

Are you kidding? Have you ever read about the swiss culture? They will never act in a manner you describe. You and I certainly wish they would, but that’s not how they are.

Coca Cola needs to sell its fizzy drinks and mind it’s own business.

Phobia is "an irrational fear".

Not many of those.

How about "Homodisgustus"?

soooo...would they tolerate a viewpoint which differs from theirs?

(this BS is from Wall Street)
said, "this ain’t capitalism"

Corporatism/socialism which are nearly identical isn't capitalism.

Billy Graham: My Heart Breaks for America July 19, 2012 - Some years ago, my wife, Ruth, was reading the draft of a book I was writing. When she finished a section describing the terrible downward spiral of our nation’s moral standards and the idolatry of worshiping false gods such as technology and sex, she startled me by exclaiming, “If God doesn’t punish America, He’ll have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.”
