Answer by Johannes Musch:

I think it's more difficult to be an atheist refugee from Islam, since people from Muslim countries tend to live in tight family- and clanstructures. If you're an atheist you're automatically banned from your society and you are doomed to live as an outcast. Christian societies tend to be more tolerant with non believers, since in most European countries they have experienced secularism since at least the 18th century. Nevertheless, in countries and regions where Christianity is being worshipped in a fundamentalist way non-believers may have a hard time too.
