It's not (just) because of the Muslims, aas many like to believe, but more because of the atheists, who for some reason like to ridicule Christianity more than other religions (probably because there are more in the West). The Christians have become used to this so they don't defend their religion as Muslims do in Muslim countries. Obviously extremism does not equal defence, but most Muslims aren't extremists. Neither do all atheists ridicule other beliefs, of course, but they do have a tendency to do so.
It's because it's easier to make fun of Christians. Making fun of Jews is for obvious reasons verboten. But some atheists (I don't want to paint a whole group with a broad brush) don't have the balls to make fun of Muslims because 1) they don't want to be seen as anti-minority and 2) they are afraid of Charlie Hebdo style retaliation. Then you also have the people who are idiots who do single out Muslims in a discriminatory way (a la Trump) and I suppose I can see why someone wouldn't want to be accidentally associated with that.
But for them it's easy to feel superior picking on Christians, even though some of the things Christians do here in the US is just dumb. Christians get taken advantage of by evangelists who convince the poor to give them money in return for God's grace, and then these evangelists who act moral or superior turn out to be pedophiles or gay or something. Still those athiests are just f*cking trolls. I really don't see what fascination people have with judging other people's lives and just like it applies to gays, it is not worth any Christian giving a single shit what some idiot thinks about him.
This is coming from someone who is now struggling with religion and priests telling me what to do though so take what I say with a grain of salt I guess.
