The Slovene Christian Democrats (Slovene: Slovenski krščanski demokrati, SKD) was a Christian Democrat political party in Slovenia between 1989 and 2000.
It was founded as the Slovene Christian Social Movement in March 1989. Its first president was Peter Kovačič Peršin. In November of the same year, it was renamed to Slovene Christian Democrats, and Lojze Peterle was elected as its president.
Between 1990 and 1992, it was the largest party within the DEMOS coalition. Between 1992 and 1996, it formed a grand coalition with the Liberal Democracy of Slovenia, and its members were ministers in Janez Drnovšek's second cabinet. Between 1996 and 2000, it stayed in opposition. In 2000, it merged with the Slovenian People's Party. Soon afterwards, however, several prominent former members of the Christian Democrats, including Lojze Peterle and the Prime Minister Andrej Bajuk, left the Slovene People's Party, and formed New Slovenia - Christian People's Party.
The Slovene Christian Democrats were the official legal heir of the historical Slovene People's Party, the most important political party in the Slovene lands between 1907 and 1941.

“Do you know I believe that [William Jennings] Bryan will force his nomination on the Democrats again. I believe he will either do this by advocating Prohibition, or else he will run on a Prohibition platform independent of the Democrats. But you will see that the year before the election he will organize a mammoth lecture tour and will make Prohibition the leading note of every address.”
—William Howard Taft (18571930)
“The Christian always swears a bloody oath that he will never do it again. The civilized man simply resolves to be a bit more careful next time.”
