While I don't think many people would go so far as to push someone off a bridge due to the differences, I'm sure there is a grain of truth to the joke--else why are there so many different denominations/sects? It's because there are so many different interpretations of the Bible, how it is to be followed, whether the bread and wine actually become the body and blood of Jesus or whether they just represent the sacrifice, etc. If people didn't believe different things, and if those differences weren't important, they wouldn't need so many divisions within the Christian faith--and the same goes for other faiths that have different sects under a general umbrella.

Are there divides amongst Christians, making this joke somewhat honest? Or would you say that this is an exaggeration and no such divide occurs? [clarity]
Have you seen/heard about Ireland? Yes, such divides do exist amongst Christians.
Irish Catholic girl grows up and becomes a prositute. Brings lots of money home to her mum and dad. Breaks the news that she is a prostitue. Dad has a fit and calls her all kinds of names. She says fine and that she would just take everything back. He says, "Wait, what did you say you were?"
"OHHH! Thank God! I thought you said PROTESTANT!!"

Emo Phillips. He's been telling it for 30 years. As with all humor, it has an element of truth. Funny how it gets changes as it gets ripped off.
