So it's more like tolerance of those who agree with you. Unless you take the "love the Sinner"-doctrine into account.
No, in true Christianity there are no conditionals so there is no "Love your neighbor as yourself only if... ," it simply states "Love your neighbor as yourself." This is evidenced by Jesus saving a either a harlot or an adultress from being stoned when the old regulations required her to be. To understand why the Old Testament rules no longer apply you would have to read a lot of the books in the New Testament.
