There is an onslaught of criticism at Christians/Christianity.

Music is full of anti-Christian sentiments. Atheist writing focuses a lot on Christianity. People still love to mention violence by Christians that happened a very long time ago.

Unlike Islam, you don't have any defenders. No one calls your critics 'babykilling racists' or things like that.

How does it feel? You're surrounded by people making it clear they find your religion a joke. How do you cope?

It's honestly not that bad lol. As a Christian, I don't have to defend my faith. I just have it.
Sure, it's dangerous to be a Christian in some places in the world. But it's also dangerous to hold any other religion in certain places. Heck, being born with a certain facial structure in some places in Africa is dangerous.
I think there are too many "defenders" of Christianity anyway.

Well as we all know comedy shows and cartoons are rife with jokes on Christians and Jesus and God and yet everyone's terrified of even portraying muhammad. doesn't seem very fair to me. Also you don't get called a Christianphobe for attacking it.

But it is a joke. I tolerate all religions simply because its the most practical thing to do. Nobody wins getting into fights over a conflict that has an unsolvable answer. But I discourage religion. Discourage but tolerate.

And what do we call the critics of Islam? Islamophobe?

Oh okay. It's one of those arguments. I'll leave.

Exactly - Islamophobia is a common slur. Christianophobe, not so much.

I'm only going to hazard a guess. Honestly, I never cared. I don't get offended from much especially things regarding words. I'm very happy and secure with my faith and where I am spiritually and at the end of the day, that's all that matters

I'd admit that ignorance about somethings does bother me (if you are going to lampoon it, at least be accurate, you know?), but overall there tends to be little to get upset or defensive about.

At the end of the day, they are still lost people searching for answers in their own life.

I didn't comment on whether these criticism/parodies are good. There are great anti-Christian songs. There are also shitty parodies (I'm sure whatever South Park or Family Guy is doing sucks major ass). I'm interested in how it feels when your faith is constantly assaulted.
