Jobbik submits amendment aimed at banning “gay propaganda” | Politics.hu

The radical nationalist Jobbik party on Wednesday submitted an amendment proposal seeking to ban “promotion of sexual deviations”, MP Adam Mirkoczki, the proponent of the bill, told a press conference.The bill is aimed at protecting “public morals and the mental health of the young generations” from homosexuality, trans-sexuality, transvestitism, bisexuality, and paedophile behaviours, the deputy said.

The legal changes to several laws would include a ban on advertisements or programmes presenting the above behaviours as socially acceptable or as examples to be followed.

If parliament passes the proposal into law, “promotion” of homosexuality or other “disorders of sexual behaviour” will be punishable by up to 8 years in prison.

The Hungarian lesbian and gay LMBT Federation protested against the motion and called on the political parties to reject putting it on parliament’s agenda.

Leftist splinter group Democratic Coalition also voiced protest and called the proposal “mean and shameful”.
