Christian churches are tolerated to varying degrees throughout the Muslim world.
To say that they are tolerated carte blanche everywhere is as mis-leading as it is to say they aren't!
There are no churches at all in Saudi Arabia and several other Muslim countries.
Chrstians are regularly persecuted in quite a few Muslim countries.
Egypt and Iran are quite tolerant to their Christian populations as are several other countries.
As with most things, nothing is as black and white as some would have us believe.
I see people talking bad about the US multiple times in one day, on the threads I visit. If everybody would take offense as much as the muslim-defenders on this site do, we'd be better of shutting down this site because of all the hate that would exist.

However I do know for a fact that there are Christians in Saudi Arabia and they are not persecuted any more than Muslims are persecuted here.
