Italy and Switzerland do not share all Western values. Same-sex marriage as a litmus test for belonging to the camp of globalists.

The United Kingdom Parliament in London recently legalized same-sex marriage in Northern Ireland, which was the last country in the United Kingdom to prohibit same-sex couples and lesbians from marrying. Same-sex marriages have also become legal this year in Ecuador, Taiwan, and Austria.
In a number of countries that recently legalized same-sex marriage, this happened through a court of law. For example, a May 17 vote in the Taiwanese legislature (the official name for the country's unicameral parliament) was triggered by a decision by the country's Constitutional Court of 2017, which repealed the law defining marriage as a union between a man and a woman. Similarly, the legalization of same-sex marriage in Austria in early 2019 occurred after the decision of the country's Constitutional Court in 2017. In the United States, the Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage across the country in a 2015 ruling.
Worldwide, most gay marriage countries are located in Western Europe. However, a number of countries in Western Europe, including Italy and Switzerland, do not allow same-sex unions. And so far, not a single country in Central and Eastern Europe has legalized same-sex marriage.
Along with New Zealand and Australia, Taiwan is one of three countries in the Asia-Pacific region that has legalized same-sex unions. In Africa, only South Africa allows gays and lesbians to marry, which became legal in 2006.
In America, five countries, besides Ecuador and the USA - Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Colombia and Uruguay - have legalized same-sex marriage. In addition, same-sex couples are allowed in some jurisdictions in Mexico.
