Daily Poll: Christian Democracy

T.P. Flag Co., Pittsburgh Pa-public domain

The Daily Catch - published on 05/12/16

Today Fr. Dwight Longenecker made a case for Christians on both side of the aisle to unite under one banner. He contends that a Christian Democracy party could be the answer to the troubles that Christians have been finding with the current political climate. He writes:

Rooted in Catholic social teaching of the nineteenth century, Christian Democracy parties have been successful in Europe and Latin America in blending the strengths of both the liberal, socialistic and conservative movements. Built on the two principles of solidarity and subsidiarity, the Christian Democracy movement seeks to bring common sense Catholic principles into the public square, however in the United States the movement has gained little traction due to the powerful and polarizing Democratic and Republican parties. If those two extremist positions are now failing, the time has come for a third way to emerge.

With the 2016 calendar flying by and the election right around the corner this topic is only going to become a hotter topic. It is with this in mind that we ask:
