Does the Church condemn social democracies? CORRECTED

Can someone help me with this? I understand that the church condemns sociialism. Does that mean it also condemns the social democracies in europe etc. or are these not really socialist? God bless


This is a correction of my previous answer, made in far too much haste. Read these:…socialism.html…ovarum_en.html…-annus_en.html
