The new Constitution [Fundamental Law] of Hungary - sanity in Europe??
From Rorate Caeli:

The new Constitution [Fundamental Law] of Hungary entered into force yesterday, and it must really be terrifying, considering the international media coverage of it.

So let us take a look at its most distressing aspects:

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.
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.

Yes, outrageous, really.

God bless Hungary, an island of sanity in the slowly-turning-senile continent of Europe.
