Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said Sunday that homosexuals should “leave our children alone” when asked about a children’s book containing gay characters that was publicly shredded by a far-right politician. “Hungary has laws pertaining to homosexuality, the basis of which is an exceptionally tolerant and patient approach,” Orban said during a regular interview on public radio. “But there is a red line that you cannot cross,” Orban said, referring to the book as a “provocative act”. “To sum up my opinion on this: leave our children alone,” he said. The remarks were prompted by a row over a children’s story book published by an LGBT association entitled “Storyworld is for everyone” that included gay characters. A collection of stories based on well-known tales, the book’s main characters are drawn from marginalized and disadvantaged minorities, including the LGBT community.
