The Christian Socialist Party USA affirms peace, equitably, justice, inclusion, and ecological integrity. We link the wisdom of our spirituality with political activism. We come from many Christian traditions, but we are united in rejecting an exploitative economic system and embracing a social and civil vision of personal and societal responsibilities. Guided by the religious, spiritual, ethical, and mores that nurture us in common faith, we honor the sacredness found in people with respect for human dignity. We lift up a society free from exploitation in defense of common sense and common law.
The tendency is structured around representative democracy from the local upward to the state and next the national.
For those concerned with the wording "Socialist," it is in the Non-Marxist manner as many were not communists (communards). In fact any Christian grouping is anti-communist by its very natural law since on dogma cannot replace another without conflict. It is how we go about working together that makes us social, civil, and respectful.
Most local groups choose their own name, usually after their location. Only statewide organization with a statewide organizer should rightfully claim such a large area. In some cases it might have to be several organizers i.e. Texas is one such huge state needing many people to bring together folks.
If we look to our European Brothers and Sisters for names in conjunction with "Christian" we also find names like:
Any single one of these names are perfectly acceptable and in line with our European examples.
