Slovakia says it will only accept Christians when it takes in Syrian refugees under a EU relocation scheme.I am surprised that more countries do not impose such conditions. Most European countries are Christian. Today, Christians are being exterminated from most of the Mid East, and there is much more cause for Christian countries to accept Christian refugees from Mideast countries.
The country is due to receive 200 people from camps in Turkey, Italy and Greece under the EU plan to resettle 40,000 new arrivals.
Interior ministry spokesman Ivan Netik said Muslims would not be accepted because they would not feel at home.
The UN's refugee agency (UNHCR) called on countries to take an "inclusive approach" to relocation.
But Mr Netik denied the move was discriminatory and said it was intended to ensure community cohesion.
Mr Netik told the BBC: "We want to really help Europe with this migration wave but... we are only a transit country and the people don't want to stay in Slovakia.Slovakia is in the European Union. My guess is that anti-Christian multi-culturalists will eventually force Slovakia to build some mosques.
"We could take 800 Muslims but we don't have any mosques in Slovakia so how can Muslims be integrated if they are not going to like it here?"
EU Commission spokeswoman Annika Breithard said she could not comment directly on the Slovak statement, but stressed that EU states were banned from any form of discrimination.
