Christian Right on the gain in Europe: Reason for hope or alarm?

Christian organisations are successful in spreading the anti-woke, anti-gender and Christian-nationalist agenda. That was the alarm that sounded in Brussels on Thursday. At a conference at the European Parliament, the book “The Christian Right in Europe” was presented, a study of the “infiltration of the Christian right into national and international institutions”. This academic study on “ultra-conservative networks” is available online and describes the state of play in several European countries. The book was published in October last year already. “A worrying trend,” Sophie in ’t Veld, MEP for Volt, called it that the Christian right in Europe is increasingly able to organise itself. On Thursday, she chaired a conference organised by the European Parliamentary Forum for Sexual and Reproductive Rights (EPF, a network of MEPs committed to LGBT rights) at the European Parliament, on which the book “The Christian Right in Europe” was highlighted. In the book, there are 20 case studies of European countries such as Hungary and Portugal, where the authors identify a growing influence of the Christian right on politics and society.
