Závecz Research conducted a survey that shows that only 20% of Hungarians would accept a homosexual prime minister.
The results show some interesting data. 20% of people would accept a homosexual prime minister, 72% are against it, and 8% refused to answer. Among Fidesz voters, 14% would accept a homosexual prime minister, 78% would be against it, and 5% did not answer the question. Among the voters of the opposition, 28% said that a homosexual prime minister would be accepted, 66% answered with no, and 6% did not answer, reported RTL, an independent TV channel that initiated the survey.
Telex asked Fidesz members about this controversial topic, and the answers were very different from one another. Zsolt Semjén told Telex the following:
“As a parent, I think it would be outrageous if any transvestites or people with whatever kinds of preferences just went up to my kid and started explaining sexual content that I do not want my child to hear. Children in schools and kindergartens must be protected from sexual impulses they are unprepared for and which their parents disagree with.”
A former member of Fidesz recently told Partizán that there are many secretly homosexual members in Fidesz. Regarding this, Telex asked a few right-wing politicians if they would accept an openly homosexual member in the political party.
Judit Varga said that
“it could happen any time. This is the 21st century and a free country. Even the PM said that for us, individual liberties are a treasure.”
The same question was addressed to Zsolt Semjén who said that he would not be enthusiastic about it, but he does not think this is a reason for exclusion. He also said that homosexuality is a sin.
RTL addressed questions to Zsófia Rácz, Deputy State Secretary for Youth, who said that she does not know about any school or kindergarten where homosexuality is intentionally promoted, but this does not mean there are none. She added that there are many psychologists and teachers at schools that a young homosexual person can talk to.
