CSU boss Markus Söder advocates a blessing for homosexual and transsexual couples.
The Bavarian Prime Minister also made a "promise of protection".
Munich - The union around Chancellor candidate Armin Laschet * (CDU) is fighting for every vote in the country in the last days before the federal election * (September 26th).
In the latest surveys, the gap between the SPD and candidate Scholz was reduced somewhat *, but there are still signs of a changing of the guard in Germany.
To this day, experts see a mistake in not having chosen CSU boss Söder as the Union's candidate for chancellor.
In popularity surveys, Söder was always able to show good values.
Now the Prime Minister has spoken about homosexual and transsexual couples - and even made a "protection promise".
Söder advocates blessings for homosexual and transsexual couples - and makes “pledges of protection”
Söder considers a blessing of partnerships between trans and homosexual people to be right.
"For me, every love is blessed," says Söder in "One hour of TIME with ..." the weekly newspaper
“I am of the opinion that no blessing should be refused.” Love is “something wonderful per se”.
If people take responsibility for one another, that should be rewarded.
He also has no problem with getting married - and not even when it comes to adoption, said Söder.
At the digital
event, the CSU boss gave a “total protection promise” that everyone could “find their own free development in Bavaria”.
