The Formula-1 racing driver shared his opinion in a recent Instagram post.
The new paedophile law in Hungary made international headlines, as it blurs the line between paedophilia and homosexuality. The European Union, many countries, several politicians, organisations, and civilians alike are concerned and angry about the law.
Even the former bishop of Vác, Miklós Beer, talked about the current situation, as we wrote earlier. The former bishop said that
“We need to acknowledge the condition of those who are struggling with sexual identity problems and the fact that they are not the cause of this situation. We have to accept them and help them find their place, but it bothers us when we come across the propaganda of LGBTQ mindset as if it was the ideal situation of human life.”
He added that it is not a lucky situation when politicians make decisions with reference to the Christian faith. According to the former bishop, Christianity has to continuously reflect on the changing world and reconsider if its practices are in accordance with Christian doctrine.
But Róbert Alföldi, an actor and director rewarded with several national prizes and professional recognition, spoke out about the issue in an interview with Partizán.
“You can’t put crime and freedom on the same platform,” he said.
Then he discussed the tragic aspect of József Szájer’s scandal that made international headlines.
“We have talked about and laughed a lot about this one person who needed to escape by fleeing along a rain gutter at the age of 60. I find this story extremely tragic. I was deeply shocked and I still am deeply shocked whenever I think about it. If Shakespeare was still alive, he would definitely write about it. He’s a real Shakespearian character…How someone has lived his life just to end up being in such a high position at the age of 60, but he has to escape along a gutter. I think this law, the fact that 14-year-olds cannot see La Cage aux Folles and no one can speak about it because we deny this whole thing, this will bring up people like him, people who have to live in a lie, causing unworthy and inhuman situations for themselves. I think that’s deeply shocking and really sad.”
More recently, Lewis Hamilton expressed his views on the situation of LGBT people in Hungary, reports Telex.
“To all in this beautiful country Hungary. Ahead of the Grand Prix this weekend, I want to share my support for those affected by the government’s anti-LGBTQ+ law. It is unacceptable, cowardly and misguiding for those in power to suggest such a law. Everyone deserves to have the freedom to be themselves, no matter who they love or how they identify. I urge the people of Hungary to vote in the upcoming referendum to protect the rights of the LGBTQ+ community, they need our support more than ever. Please show love for those around you because Love will always win. Sending you positivity,” he wrote.
