The Christian Party was a fascist American political party founded by William Dudley Pelley in 1935. The party might be considered to be the political wing of Pelley's paramilitary organization, the Silver Legion. It ran with Pelley as its candidate for the 1936 presidential campaign (Silver Legion member Willard Kemp was the Vice Presidential candidate). Pelley gained just 1,600 votes in the election. The party was quickly dissolved after the United States entered World War II.
