But this is true of all religions.  All members in a religion do not agree 
with each other, it's not just Christianity.  You really think every Muslim 
is out there trying to blow themselves up?  Hamas is an extremist splinter, 
just like other extremist groups in Christianity, but they're still all 

And, no, not all would be practicing Christians, but how many are 
practicing Jews or Muslims or Hindus?  The ratios of practicing to 
nonpracticing are probably pretty equal across the board, it's human nature.
