God Bless the Hungarians



I know this is old news, I found it on Rorate Caeli, but this is just wonderful! No wonder all the terrible political liberals of the European Experiment are frothing. As my old grandmother used to say "there's nothing so illiberal as a liberal". (She also had a few things to say about men in beards, but that is for another time).

[Preamble:]

God bless the Hungarians
...
We are proud that our king Saint Stephen built the Hungarian State on solid ground and made our country a part of Christian Europe one thousand years ago.
...
We recognise the role of Christianity in preserving nationhood. We value the various religious traditions of our country.
...
We do not recognise the suspension of our historical constitution due to foreign occupations. We deny any statute of limitations for the inhuman crimes committed against the Hungarian nation and its citizens under the National Socialist and Communist dictatorships. 
We do not recognise the Communist constitution of 1949, since it was the  basis for tyrannical rule; therefore we proclaim it to be invalid.
...
Article L 
(1) Hungary shall protect the institution of marriage as the union of a man and a woman established by voluntary decision, and the family as the basis of the nation’s survival.
(2) Hungary shall encourage the commitment to have children.
...
FREEDOM AND RESPONSIBILITY
...
Article II 
Human dignity shall be inviolable. Every human being shall have the right to life and human dignity; embryonic and foetal life shall be subject to protection from the moment of conception.

How can it come as a surprise that we should defend life? Slightly different from the Americans, British, EU, etc. who seem to be hell bend on killing their future generations.

The irony is that you cannot hold an absolutist position in liberalism, unless it is the liberal agenda. Something which is supposed to allow all to hold 'what is true and meaningful for themselves' will not admit a truth claim. Interestingly this was my conclusion in part on the subject of synodality (in a rather good book by myself on the bar to the right - actually it is quite dull, so don't buy it... get the one on the Old Testament instead, its a bit tricky, but a cracking read).
