But this is precisely why I ask.  It would raise their image if they were standing with the Christian community on these issues.  If there was a focus on similarities between Christian and Muslim rather than the differences.

I'll repeat, issues should be addressed in order of priorities. Issues that plague and impact the community at large should be addressed before we start discussing issues that are more personal in nature (e.g. abortion, gay-marriages etc).

I disagree.  We're not going to cure the ails of the world if we don't fix the foundations of our own societies first.  As long as people are living in disobedience to God's laws there will be disorder and division in the world.  It is the foundations which need to be maintained for a healthy society to not only survive, but thrive.

Well I was specifically addressing the health mandate which would require even religious organizations to provide services which are abhorrent to them.  Of which Mosques are one of these organizations.  The Catholic voice is the only one being heard. 
I hear Christians condemned all the time for their abhorrent behaviors and beliefs but I don't see the Muslims speaking out against this issue.

This issue is one that addresses the impending removal of the very freedoms which the masses emigrated to America to establish.  The many people who left their homelands to get away from oppression... from dictatorship... and now that is where America is heading... to the very things the people were escaping.
