(Worthy News) – Hungary’s government has proposed a constitutional amendment defending “the order of Creation” that would require children to be raised according to Christian principles and bans adoption by same-sex couples.
Marriage must be between a man and woman, and only people in such a union would be allowed to adopt children, according to legislation submitted to Parliament on Tuesday.
Though same-sex couples have already been limited to civic partnerships and excluded from marriage, the proposed changes would take the European Union member state further into conservative territory.
The draft amendment submitted to parliament by Justice Minister Judit Varga declares that children must be guaranteed an “upbringing based on values stemming from Hungary’s … Christian culture.”
“The basis for family relations is marriage,” it says. “The mother is a woman, the father is a man.” It also says Hungary “protects children’s right to the gender identity they were born with,” after a government campaign to outlaw transgender identities.
CHRISTIAN BASIC LAW
Liberal commentators condemned the proposal by Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s conservative nationalist government as imposing a “Christian Basic Law” on a “non-religious society.”
