  • Christianity and Liberal Democracy in the 21st Century

    I identified as a Christian and a Liberal Democrat around the same time. Whilst I’d grown up in a progressive Christian home, it took until I was 16/17 years old to have asked enough questions, debated with a wide enough pool of people and challenged the principles of Christianity sufficiently to consider getting baptised. Simultaneously I was doing my first year of A Level Politics and discovering that the values advocated for by the Liberal Democrats struck a chord. I joined the party 10th May 2015 and got baptised 18th October the same year.

Everyone is a Liberal at heart, they just don't all know it yet
