I would argue that many didn't willingly assist in the genocide.

That is probably at least as true as arguing that many did. In fact, since these were the most extreme ones who rose to the top (as so often happens, just as it does with political correctness) there were probably many more people who did not willingly participate in the Jewish genocide as those who did.
In any case, I grew up thinking of European countries as Christian countries and saw no harm in it so his referring to a Christian culture rather than as a "Judeo-Christian culture" does not bother me one bit. The term "Judeo Christian culture" sounds a little like virtue-signalling and virtue-signalling isn't in Orban's lexicon. Were he to indulge in what sounds like virtue-signalling, his popularity might go down and the popularity of genuinely extremist elements would go up.
