    That modern political activity should be *inspired* by Christian principles, such as those stated by modern popes, I can admit. But that a political *party* bear the name “Christian”, is to my mind a perversion of the primacy of the spiritual over the temporal order: a primacy insisted upon both by the Catholic essayist and diplomat Jacques Maritain (as in his book *Integral Humanism*), and by the Evangelical (Republican) senator Mark O. Hatfield of Oregon (as in his book *Between a Rock and a Hard Place*; Hatfield co-sponsored the McGovern-Hatfield amendment to end the Vietnam war).
    Just because some European parties bear the name “Christian Democrat” doesn’t mean we have to in America. Since the U.S. Democratic Party has become really undemocratic, and inhuman, why not name a Judeo-Christianly inspired political party simply “the Humanly Democratic Party”?

      The associated political party is titled the American Solidarity Party; Christian Democracy is, as the title of the post suggests, the name of a magazine. Regardless, the aptness of the word Christian in the name of a political party is, I suspect, entirely subjective.
