We have freedom of speech and freedom of religion in this country. If you don't like a book's subject don't read it. If someone's faith was so tested by this and other books that they stopped attending church, they weren't exactly devout to begin with.

No one here. Not ONE I read advocated the banning of the book. The outrage is about how it is acceptable to mock Christians and offend THEM but GOD HELP US if anyone DARES to offend a Muslum, homosexual or minority.
Just calling out the hypocrites.
If this was a book mocking homosexuals for "hate" crimes against them would you say the same thing? Or would you be outraged?

Conservative publications criticize "leftist", "pro-gay", "anti-Christian", etc. works all the time. Just because the left dominates the larger media outlets doesn't mean that there are no conservative outlets that criticize books that offend their ideas and values.
A Christian can be crushed gazing at the picture of Mary standing at the foot of the cross, watching her beloved son suffocate and die. But in that vision, she stands there for hours, patiently enduring her suffering. For two millennia, she has been a role model for Christians, a woman who practiced obedience in the most difficult of human circumstances, with fervent hope for what this sacrifice will offer all mankind as it struggles with sin.

This is why it seems so hard to reflect that vision of patience when black-hearted "artists" practice character assassination on the Blessed Virgin...
