Christian Democracy

To make matters worse, soon after Chile entered a political period in which the religion had fundamental importance. The Christian Democracy, become attached to the clergy and the catholic community, Beyond disputed the power with Salvador, leader of the atheistic and Marxist left.

So calladito, more tuna As it did not beat to be of rights and atheistic, I did not discuss much on the subject in my youth, but it followed firmly with my convictions in spite of not having an academic base on the matter, only counted on my logic. What it more bothered me in sporadic discussions, were the unrestricted asseveration of my fellow members referring to that at heart I yes believed in God, because otherwise it could not be the more or less good person that they saw in me and in addition they guessed that when I was in true danger or on the verge of dying, I would not have left more remedy than to call to God That is, cannot be good without believing in God and if you fear to him to the death, it is because you believe in him. In other words, all that do not create in God are bad and those that they do not fear to die, are atheistic.
