Arguements Among Others?

Christians quarrel, yes, but do other belief groups as well?

I might just be the typical narrow-minded Christian here, but it always seems to me that Christians are singled out as being so hypocritical, by quarreling among ourselves. Now I'm going to agree that it looks pretty bad, especially on the "outside" looking in, but I want to ask the question, are we the only ones? I mean, atheists, do you all quarrel about what to and what not to believe? Or Scientology, do they argue about different hypothesis? I know what kind of response I am going to get. I am going to get the "well, Christians claim to be perfect" or the "They are hypocrites," but what about others, how do you deal with it? Or do you not have a problem with it at all? I just want to learn a little more about the interaction between others in other circles which I do not have the opportunity to interact with.
