A survey carried out by Publicus Institute says that the third of Hungarians finds it possible that someone becomes homosexual after seeing LGBTQ content.
Hungary’s new “paedophile law”, aka “homosexual law”, is still an issue that resurfaces every couple of days in the media. After the passing of the bill caused outrage both in the country and on an international level, the Hungarian government decided to organise a referendum with which citizens can also express their opinion and concerns. Nevertheless, the law entered into effect, which now means that any content depicting homosexuality is banned from schools and kindergartens to protect children under the age of 18.
As DNH recently reported, the law completely divided Hungarian society. Now, a new survey carried out by the Publicus Institute by the commission of Népszava states the same.
The public survey measuring the voters’ opinion at the end of July shows that
42% of Hungarians think that LBGTQ communities lead their propaganda of sexual orientation different from the majority.
This propaganda presented in schools and kindergartens poses a real risk to children.
Almost the third of the people participating think that someone can become homosexual after being exposed to this kind of content.
Apart from the Hungarians’ perception of homosexuality, the survey also investigated how the people see Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s initiative for a referendum concerning the issue.
The survey also shows that a higher percentage of oppositional voices was aware of this referendum (90%), as opposed to 75% of pro-government voters.
55% of voters think that the referendum is genuinely about the protection of children, while
the majority (87%) of the opposition sees it otherwise, as a simple political action, part of the government’s campaign before the elections next year.
Telex.hu writes that 78% of pro-government voters but only 27% of the opposition would participate in the referendum.
After it became clear that the government would not get rid of or would not modify the new law, Budapest Mayor Gergely Karácsony came up with his own initiative for a referendum investigating “how to protect Hungary’s future from the Orbán government’s amok”. He prepared five questions, including the new campus of the Chinese Fudan University planned to be built in Budapest, or the European Public Prosecutor’s Office and whether Hungary should join.
The question of the university is quite interesting.
Over half of those participating in the survey (58%) are rather against establishing the Chinese campus in the Hungarian capital. Even the third of Fidesz supporters are on the same page.
