Christians are routinely mocked and ridiculed by secular progressive types without the slightest fear of blowback. Yet that same condescension is never shown toward the Muslim religion. They know (even if they don't say it) that there would be real consequenceses for doing so.

Fortunately or unfortunately, depending on how you look at it, Christians are advised by Christ himself to turn the other cheek when mocked and ridiculed. My pastor's message just last Sunday was about this very phenomenon, and why it's necessary and important to learn how to turn the other cheek--not to physical violence as FeedMeCrap misinterprets, but to infliction of emotional pain.
