Fascism (IPA: [ˈfæː.ʃɪ.zm̩]) is a political ideology and mass movement that seeks to place the nation, defined in exclusive biological, cultural, and/or historical terms, above all other sources of loyalty, and to create a mobilized national community.
Christianity is a monotheistic religion centered on Jesus of Nazareth and his life, death, resurrection, and teachings as presented in the New Testament. Christians believe Jesus to be the Son of God and the Messiah prophesied in the Old Testament. With an estimated 2.1 billion adherents in 2001, Christianity is the world's largest religion.
There you go, you can figure it out....I am not a judge.
Bless you in 2007!

The Christianity that you see that mirrors that is not the real Christians, but a group that thinks there christian, but the bible tells us about a group who claim to be Christians, though their not. And on that day the Lord will tell depart from me, I never knew you, and there will be weeping and gnashing their teeth!

Well, both are found on planet Earth, in our current solar system.
Both have had leaders (of a general nature) that lived in Italy.
Both system's leadership was composed entirely of men (as opposed to women).
That's about it.

Both practiced by human beings.
