I always thought that Democracy began through
the teaching of Christianity over the centuries .

Demo Cratis is Greek. Established in Athens as "the rule of the people" 500 years prior to Christianity. No Christian country ever became democratic in the true sense of the word until late in the 17th century.

Even it England (home of parliamentary democracy) there never was universal suffrage until the 20th century.

Christianity and democracy may sound good but are in no way mutually exclusive.

Betsy ,, there have been many types of democracies during the ages .

I mention Roman , because Christianity was there during part of the time that the Roman Empire existed .

Pray tell what part of the Roman Empire are you referring to. It never was democratic at any time in it's history. Christianity became the official religion of Rome (Citizens of Rome not the Roman Empire) in 380 under the rule of Theodosis. After his death the Roman Empire collapsed and never recovered. Therefore there never was a "Christian Roman Empire" as the east and west factions of the church were divided and never were reconciled. (Orthodox Eastern and Roman Catholic).

There would be a case here for even a superficial reading of history as what you are arguing here is total self generated mythology.

-------------------------------------

The Roman Empire was never Democratic in today's definition of the word
" democracy" .

But the teaching of Christianity has managed to change man-kinds thoughts on this type of governing . It is unfortunately not perfect but probably better than in Roman times . So until someone comes up with a better solution for human kind , we will have to stick with the type of Democracy that we know.

Perhaps ' TallyRand would you have a solution ?

Re. Petunias post.

On a report I recently read the quoted date of 2050 is when it is believed Islam will be level with Christianity in following and by 2070 will have the worlds largest following. The figures are based on fertility rates of all the major population groups.

I'm waiting for atheism to catch up, but I'm a bit past doing anything about the fertility rate!

Hi Doug , I too have read a few of those articles and should this mean that Christianity is on it's way out, Then I would say that the problem is Christians themselves , who are becoming more Secular in their daily life style .

Mainly fertility Angel, how many children families have. If you take Germany for example where not enough children are being born to sustain their population, let alone increase it, so they allow mass migration into their country to counter-balance the figure. In Britain, as at 2014, the most popular boys name for children born was Muhammad, says it all does it not.
