Atheism in Hungary

Most Hungarians have no strong ties to their religion. Religious affiliation is in most cases rather a question of family tradition. Going to church is not a usual family programme on Sunday mornings. However, most people do believe in some kind of higher power, and around 10%-15% are religious enough to follow the teachings of a church and visit a service more or less regularly.

Still, there is no atheist, secular and skeptic organisation I know of that is actually working. There is a Skeptic Society (Szkeptikus Társaság), but they decided not to discuss anything related to organised religion and keep to debunking quacks and similar issues. If I missed something, please  tell me!

There are three groups on Facebook: the Atheist Club (http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=192861589533), Atheism (https://www.facebook.com/groups/122643284419668/) and the Atheist Church (https://www.facebook.com/groups/44124222204), and an inactive group on the Hungarian facebook, IWIW: http://iwiw.hu/pages/community/comdata.jsp?cID=1005904.
