    Christian Democracy


    "So I wrote this song for the Christian youth, I wanna teach kids the Christain truth

    If you wanna reach those kids on the street then you gotta do a rap to a hip-hop beat

    So I gave my sermon an urban kick, my rhymes are fly, my beats are sick

    My crew is big and it keeps gettin' bigga, that's cuz Jesus Christ is my ni🅱️🅱️a."

    Opening of Rappin' for Jesus

    Christian Democracy is an economically CLeft.png centre-left to Cright.png centre-right (largely depending on his opposition), moderately authoritarian and culturally centre-left to right-wing ideology, born out of an affair between Christy.png Christian Theocracy and Lib.png Liberal Democracy.

    Christian Democracy's beliefs largely vary from the country to country, and unlike his Catheo.pngfather he isn't necessarily Catholic. What usually stays consistent is the belief that the state that works within a Lib.png liberal-democratic framework should enforce traditional values of the church.

    History

    Christian Democracy can be traced back to the philosophical views of Thomas Aquinas and his thoughts on Christian tradition. According to Aquinas human rights are based on natural law and are defined as things that humans would need to survive. For example food is a natural right because without it a human cannot function.

    Christian Democracy began to gain more prominence after the French Revolution where French Republicanism and the Catholic Church were hostile towards one another. The Catholic Church was initially in opposition towards liberalism, capitalism, and democracy, as they saw them as destructive towards the traditional family lifestyle, promoting selfishness, and allowing permissive and self-indulgent behavior to thrive.

    During the latter half of the 19th century, there were many Catholic political movements which encouraged the Catholic Church to become more involved in modern politics. Many of these movements were united in their opposition to liberal secularism, civil marriage, state controlled education, and separation of church and state. These groups were not entirely against democracy however as they saw democracy as being a politically expedient tool rather than being the best political system. Similar movements were being founded in Protestant countries by more conservative Protestants in reaction to secularization.

    After World War II, many Protestant and Catholic political activists helped rebuild Western Europe and established democracy in the war torn continent. Christian Democracy was favored by many because it was seen as a politically neutral and unifying movement separate from the destructive far-right. Christian Democracy was particularly successful in West Germany, where many had come to detest Adolf Hitler's regime yet still agreed with many right wing view points.

    Christian Democracy has been embraced by many Catholics in Europe and Latin America as well as by some Protestant and Orthodox Christians. While some Christian Democrat parties have become more secular in recent years, many still support intermediary organizations that can operate between the state and the individual. It is common for Christian Democrat parties to support church operated schools, hospitals, charities and social insurance funds, usually having payroll taxes or social welfare funding these institutions. They may also support their own labor unions that are organized in their own Christian trade unions separate from their own socialist counterparts.
