Some debate what "Buddhism" is. I like this quote from Batchelor's "Buddhism Without Belief":
"Depending on which part of Buddhism you grasp, you might identify it as a system of ethics, a philosophy, a contemplative psychotherapy, a religion. ... That which contains the range of elements that constitute Buddhism is called a 'culture'".
And it seems to me that an individual is free to utilize Buddhist concepts in any or all of those ways. Let the cherry picking begin.
Just my view.
