New Hungarian government office to assist persecuted Christians
September 07, 2016
The Hungarian government has established an office to assist persecuted Christians.
“Hungary considers itself Christian, and is interested in the situation of Christians all around the world,” Eduard von Habsburg, the ambassador of Hungary to the Holy See, said of the decision to establish the sub-secretariat, which has a $3.35-million budget.
“Somehow the idea of defending Christians has acquired a bad taste in Europe, as if it means excluding other people,” he added.
