If you really know what the Bible says about the major social issues such as the sanctity of life in the womb, the exclusivity of marriage between a man and a woman and that as a Christian you are no longer a citizen of the world but a citizen of God’s kingdom and are committed to living according to God’s revealed will as communicated through the Bible , then the answer to this question follows rather obviously. Since the Democratic Party now very explicitly disagrees with and enthusiastically promotes that which the Bible so clearly condemns (see above) it is literally impossible to be an authentic Christian and honestly support the Democratic Party platform. So while you may be formally associated with the Democratic Party and be a genuine Christian you would be a Democrat in name only. But you can’t be an authentic Christian and an authentic Democrat. As Jesus said. You can’t serve two masters.

I am tempted to say you can’t even call yourself a decent person if you support the Democrat party, but I won’t. I have too many friends and family members that subscribe to that line of logic (or lack there of). Aborting babies five minutes or one second before birth is true infanticide. Abortion itself is already infanticide. I just don’t understand how anyone on that side can justify it. This legislation recently passed in NY will only imprison women. The illusion of “free choice” is the greatest lie ever conceived. God help this country...we certainly don’t deserve His mercy.

You can be a Christian and a Democrat, since your salvation doesn't ride on what party you support. But you'd have to be awfully asleep at the wheel. Seemingly a lot of Christians just don't think these things through, and keep themselves in the dark. Everyone suffers because of their irresponsibility.

Catholic: I guess you could try, but you would have to go to confession because the Bible does despise abortions, gay marriage (however, they have become tolerant to an extent), Planned Parenthood, etc.
However, non of these are horrible, except for abortion. There are only a few certain passages that argues against homosexuality. And Planned Parenthood really has to do with the fact hat most people who use it are having sex before marriage and are using condoms, which are both somewhat great sins within the Catholic Church. However, in this day and age, the average age to lose your virginity is around 16 or 17, and I bet there is a solid amount from Catholic schools.
But overall, as long as you are “treating thy neighbor as thyself” and have the right intentions, you would could probably be a good Christian. The same can be said for conservatives as well with capitalism, even though I support it.
