Because of doing too much social work put to silence

Because certain faith-groups are doing too much in the branch of social work the Hungarian government is afraid those Christians groups will receive too much power. Therefore it wants those churches to stop their activities.

Schools formed by other religious communities than the Roman Catholics had to be handed over to the Catholics.

A brotherhood schism of the Methodists had 140 locations in poor parts of the country, facing more than 1 million Roma living in poverty. The church does not receive any money from the Hungarian government and lost her recognition as a church.

According the government these limitation have only something to do with the financial site but not with the freedom of fellowship or freedom of religion.
