Christan and Socialist are mutually exclusive terms.

One cannot be both.

Exactly. I guess I missed the positive references to Christ from Marx.

My sentiments exactly. I don't know ANY Christian Socialists.

Socialism is an economic and political theory.

Many people have mistaken Christianity for socialism - just ask any left-wing theologian like the ones staffing the World Council of Churches etc.

An unsupported assertion. If one follows Jesus' teachings and the examples he and his followers set, you'd be a communist. Indeed, this is what the communistic "Liberation Theology" movement is all about.
