Christian Love?

As I'm sure most skeptics are aware, there's a modern phenomenon among the varying denominations of Christianity where just about all Christians will abandon their various differences and band together in unshakable unity when told to do so by a high profile Protestant.  No matter how different their philosophical views subjects like premillennialism, a pretribulation rapture, or the divinity of Mary, when a social issue of any magnitude erupts within our society, these people immediately band together in a mob of gushing Biblical solidarity.

But I submit that Christians actually hate one another.  They hate each other to such an extent that they can't even so much as be in the same building with one another for a couple of hours.  These people would rather spend money that they don't have to build a new building - excuse me, a new, "house of worship" - than tolerate the blockheads from a few doors down.  I mean, have you heard what those pinheads believe down there?  HA!

Don't believe me?  All you have to do is pick a Southern state, like my home state of Texas, and drive around one of the larger cities.  Sure, there are definitely some larger churches, even a few mega-churches, but for the most part you'll discover one church after another, after another.  If you really want a good laugh, take a couple of hours to drive through some of the rural areas in Texas.  In one small town alone you're likely to see a plethora of Baptist churches; say a First Baptist Church, Second Baptist Church, Missionary Baptist Church, Trinity Baptist Church, New Hope Baptist Church, New Covenant Baptist Church, Calgary Baptist Church, Insert-Town-Name-Here-Baptist-Church...  All within a 10 to 15 mile radius of one another.

Christian love?  Not even.  You don't have to go to a Chick-Fil-A to witness how hostile and hateful these people are.  The vast number of tiny little churches within just a few miles of each other stand as a testament to how much they hate other human beings, even the ones that worship the same book.
