When Hungary's Minister of Justice, Judit Varga, sat down with Tim Constantine, she made no bones about the essential role of the family in her nation, not only culturally, but legally. She starts by pointing out that Hungary's Constitution defines the family as a mother, a father and their child and that the family is based on marriage and that marriage is between one man and one woman. For the past 1000 years the world at large would not only have agreed, but would have wondered why that needed to be explained. For the past 10 years however, many who offer that opinion are criticized in the mainstream media as intolerant or worse. Hungary's commitment to traditional values is impressive and Varga makes no apology for the nation's consistent Judeo/Christian message.
