Persecuted Christians Will Help Save Europe –Hungarian PM

The Hungarian Prime Minister believes that persecuted Christians who are being protected today may help save Europe in the future.

Speaking at the second International Conference on Christian Persecution in Budapest, Victor Orbán said the vulnerable Christians that the government is helping now will be the ones who will also help Europe, reports LifeSite News.

I’m convinced that in order to save Europe, those who could provide us with the biggest help are those whom we’re helping right now. —Hungarian Prime Minister Victor Orbán

“I’m convinced that in order to save Europe, those who could provide us with the biggest help are those whom we’re helping right now. We’re sowing a seed, giving the persecuted what they need and getting back from them the Christian faith, love, and persistence.”

The PM said Hungary, being a predominantly Christian nation, is responsible for protecting Christian minorities in other countries, as stated in the Constitution.

“Four out of five people persecuted for their faith are Christians and some 245 million Christians around the globe suffer extreme persecution,” Orbán said.

He condemned Europe’s Christian politicians for turning a blind eye to the atrocities Christians face. “European politicians seem paralyzed and unable to do anything, insisting that it is all a matter of generic ‘human rights.'”

“A mysterious force shuts the mouths of European politicians and cripples their arms,” he added. “Christians are not allowed to be mentioned on their own, only together with other groups that are being persecuted for their faiths.”

The PM pointed out that Christianity is vital for the survival not only of Hungary, but other European countries as well. “Hungarians believe Christian values lead to peace and happiness.”

In an interview with Church Militant, Eduard Habsburg, Hungarian Ambassador to the Holy See, said the media is a powerful instrument in giving the spotlight to the plight of persecuted Christians.

“I can feel a very strong echo in the media,” he said. “And this is very important because the voices who call out about the persecution of Christians are still feeble voices in a resounding silence in most of Europe.”
