Justice Minister Judit Varga said Hungary has been attacked by Brussels "on an unprecedented proportion only because the protection of children and families remains our priority, and in view of this, we are unwilling to let the LGBTQ lobby into our schools”.
In a Facebook post, the justice minister said the government has responded to indecent attacks, as well as to the Rule of Law Report of the Commission. “We have had many disputes with the institutions in Brussels before, however, we have settled them officially by answering all questions correctly, we have addressed all concerns, furthermore, we have always complied with the Treaties. We hit a nerve in Brussels only because we consider the protection of children more important than pampering the LGBTQ lobby. So now they’re using all tools, bringing back old debates, thus foisting everything on us,” she added.
Minister Varga said the sources of the report were one-sided and politically biased, reflecting a double standard against Hungary, “thus, its findings are inaccurate”. “They expect the independent constitutional organs of Hungary to take decisions that the Commission considers desirable in specific cases – regardless of both facts and regulations,” Minister Varga said. “This is an abuse of power by the Commission,” she added.
