Fact of the Day: Many Christian Views

While it is the world's largest religion, Christianity has many different denominations and sects within itself and its major branches. There was an estimated 1,600 different ones in 1900 but by 2016 the number is about 40,000 world-wide.

40,000 doesn't surprise me as there are some that are so strange that they beg belief. Like the "Church of the Sacred Pumpkins" etc etc.
