The mainstream media demonise Hungarian president Viktor Orban. His latest move is to ban the teaching of homosexuality and LGBTIQA+ gender fluid ideology to children as a normal and healthy (based on our Creator’s design and roles) lifestyle. Meeting in their majestic Parliament House on the banks of the Danube, Hungary’s National Assembly voted 157-1 to protect children from LGBTIQA+ indoctrination at school. It was opposed by one independent.
They also say he is “far right”, an authoritarian, and a racist for refusing to open his borders. With Europe’s birth rate plummeting, Hungary has implemented several pro-family initiatives including, “waiving housing debt for larger families and not taxing at all four-time mothers”. Hungary is fighting a real extinction rebellion. With Poland, Hungary stood firm against the European Union’s demands for same-sex marriage.
Lydia Gall, a senior researcher at Human Rights Watch, called the legislation “a cynical, distasteful and deliberate attempt by the Orban government to trample the rights of LGBT people and essentially make them invisible in Hungarian society.”
Dunja Mijatovic, the commissioner for human rights at the Council of Europe, the continent’s leading human rights body, asked Hungarian lawmakers to reject the legislation. “I urge you to remain vigilant against such initiatives to push through measures that limit human rights or stigmatize … some members of society,” Mijatovic said in a statement Monday.
The Hungarian amendments would outlaw any depiction or discussion of different gender identity and sexual orientation in public, including in schools and the media.
Mijatovic said such legislation reinforces prejudice against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people. She also argued that international human rights groups have established that young people have a right to comprehensive sex education, which is not possible if there is a ban on any discussion of LGBT issues.
“The proposed legislative amendments run counter to international and European human rights standards. It is misleading and false to claim that they are being introduced to protect children,” she said. How wrong and deluded she is but sadly she stands with the majority view that reject God’s values and Commandments.
Pleas pray for these God honouring parliaments in Hungary and Poland that they will stand firm and their courage will be vindicated.
