Buddhism is not a religion. One can be a Christian or any other denomination Buddhist.

First, Buddhism is classified as a Religion not a philosophy professionally among archeologists, historians, religion scholars, sociologists, etc.

No they can’t. Buddhism may allow for an adherent to be a Christian, but Christianity does not allow a Christian to be a Buddhist. Christianity is exclusive and for good reason.
