The difference is the distance. A northerner can not only decide that everybody from a southern state is clinging to a bible and/or a gun, but also quite possibly never actually meet one.

I don't recall living anywhere in the UK where I did not meet at least one northerner, southerner, Welshman, Scotsman, etc. I think that's partly why the culture splits tend to be along class and wealth lines more than geographic ones.
