Orbán: Brussels Wants Hungary to Allow LGBTQ Activists in Schools, Kindergartens

MTI-Hungary Today 2021.07.08.

The European Parliament and the European Commission try to get Hungary to allow LGBTQ activists into kindergartens and schools, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said on Thursday.

Orbán told reporters in Belgrade that Wednesday’s European Parliament plenary debate on Hungary’s new child protection law had been useful because it clearly revealed the positions.

The EP and the EC want LGBTQ activists and organisations to gain entry to schools and kindergartens but “Hungary does not want this”, Orbán said.

The debate concerns who should decide about how to raise children, Orbán added.

The European basic treaties clearly show that it is an issue that belongs in national authority, he said, adding that “Brussels bureaucrats have no business here”.

“No matter what they’ll do, we will not allow LGBTQ activists to enter our kindergartens and schools,” Orbán said.
