    Can I ask a question? How, in Germany of all places, can a political party actually have "Christian" in their name? I know if someone tried that in America, the secularists would (successfully) attempt to persuade people that they are fundamentalist zealots.

    Back in the "good old days" their motto was "Gott Mit Uns". Maybe it's ironic.

    it means god with us.
    europeans are secularists. French the most.

    In eu constitution secularists fought their interests, the word christianity is not even mentioned in EU constitution. Anyway it was blocked in France and denmark by referendum.
