With Brussels and organizations linked to US financier George Soros “attacking” Hungary over its child protection law, it is only right if voters have the final say in the debate, the group leader of ruling Fidesz has said in connection with Hungary’s April 3 referendum on child protection.
Storybooks, commercials, and the internet are subjecting children to “propaganda” on sexual orientations, which they should be protected from, Máté Kocsis told public broadcaster Kossuth Radio on Sunday. It is parents who have the exclusive right to decide on the sex education of their children, he said.
Kocsis said Hungary had been under pressure from the international media and under attack “by NGOs linked to Soros and pseudo-civil groups” since it passed its anti-pedophile and child protection law last summer. “Let’s let the people decide; that’s the right way to do it,” he said.
